Not CD of the week: Madonna: Bedtime Stories (Maverick 9362-45767-2)
Caroline Sullivan, Guardian, The, 28 October 1994
"MAKING THIS album was a test of my sanity and stability," Madonna writes in the sleevenotes, admitting for the first time that she's not always the tough broad of popular myth. She doesn't get any more specific, but the song 'Human Nature' may elucidate. "I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex/I didn't know I couldn't speak my mind... I don't have to justify anything," she whispers over a stark digital beat.
