Madonna – Bedtime Stories. Лейбл: Maverick – 9362-45767-2, Sire – 9362-45767-2, Warner Bros. Records – 9362-45767-2. Bedtime Stories (CD, Album).
Perhaps she wanted to offer a more optimistic take on sex than the distant Erotica. Either way, Bedtime Stories is a warm album, with deep, gently pulsating grooves; the album's title isn't totally tongue-in-cheek. The best songs on the album ("Secret," "Inside of Me," "Sanctuary," "Bedtime Story," "Take a Bow") slowly work their melodies into the subconscious as the bass pulses. In that sense, it does offer an antidote to Erotica, which was filled with deep but cold grooves.

To that end, Bedtime Stories is lyrically and musically a much warmer album. She sacrifices some bawdy entendres (compare Erotica's "Where Life Begins" to Bedtime's "Inside of Me") and focuses on autobiographical matter. Instead of Erotica's chilly, pounding dance pop, Bedtime puts Madonna in softer sonic territory. It was similarly successful on the charts, debuting at a respectable No. 3 slot on the Billboard 200. The first single, "Secret," also peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Bedtime Stories is the sixth studio album by Madonna. The album is less sexually-explicit, is a mixture of pop and R&B, and discusses themes of love, sorrow, and romance. It debuting at number three on the Billboard 200 and was certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Four singles were released for the album; Secret, Take a Bow, Bedtime Story, and Human Nature. It was nominated for Best Pop Album at the 38th Grammy Awards. Today, the album has sold five-million copies worldwide. Bedtime Stories Q&A.
Bedtime Stories was the first Madonna album that felt like a non-event, an asterisk to her omnipresence, another hot day in a heat wave. And as such, this album has been difficult to assess as an art object. Madonna was, in 1992-1994, an artist under siege. Sex, her soft-core porn coffee table book, had been called obscene; it has been subsequently been reassessed as a smart and entertaining post-feminist grand jeté.
