Madonna gives us a trippy album... clearly as much her own work as Paul Oakenfold's, Ray of Light is a relentlessly boring album. Well not really relentless, you can kind of enjoy the singles because you already know them and they have nostalgic value.
That being said the album is very well produced and some of the sounds in it are pretty good, however it just comes across as really dull for the most part. Long, boring, and not particularly original.
The lack of originality might not have been readily apparent for a US public, but for those in Europe and particularly the UK the trippy sound was anything but new. British DJs had been doing this for almost a decade now. So eh.
