Background: Released in 1998, Ray of Light was the seventh studio album by Madonna.
The album reached #2 on the U.S. album charts and #1 on the UK chart.
Returning to pop after a four-year hiatus, Madonna enlisted respected techno producer William Orbit as her collaborator for Ray of Light, a self-conscious effort to stay abreast of contemporary trends. Unlike other veteran artists who attempted to come to terms with electronica, Madonna was always a dance artist, so it’s no real shock to hear her sing over breakbeats, pulsating electronics, and blunted trip-hop beats. Still, it’s mildly surprising that it works as well as it does, largely due to Madonna and Orbit’s subtle attack. …It all results in her most mature and restrained album, which is an easy achievement to admire, yet not necessarily an easy one to love.
