Change the title and packaging so that it matches The Immaculate Collection and can clearly be seen as a second part to it. Also, I would have waited a few more months and tied it in with Die Another day as first single. 

1) Erotica

2) Fever (Edit One) 

3) Rain

4) Deeper and deeper

5) I'll remember

6) Secret

7) Take a bow

8) Human Nature 

9) You'll see

10) Frozen

11) Ray of light

12) The power of goodbye 

13) Nothing really matters

14) Beautiful stranger

15) American pie

16) Music

17) Don't tell me

But then it won't be a greatest hits :)

I know people love the edits but I probably would enjoy something less radio friendly and more substantial.

Different edits, single mixes/edits. Nothing of censored lyrics.

It came out just on the time when CDs were hits and vinyl not, and nothing of streaming, so it suffered the chopping board big time.

Few years later and we could have at least a double feature.

I like the name and graphic design. The thing that need fixing is the terrible sequencing on the tracklist, chronological works way better and it desperately needed to have at least American Pie or Time Stood Still (I know why she didn't put any of those songs on it). The thing that also irks me a lil bit are the Guy Ritchie-isms on the booklet lol, but still, it's like a weird time capsule of who she was back then.

I actually love the artwork packaging but I think the tracklist flows more seamlessly in chronological order.

The Second Coming (genius title)

1. Erotica

2. Deeper And Deeper

3. Secret

4. Take A Bow

5. Bedtime Story

6. Human Nature

7. Don't Cry For Me Argentina (Miami Mix Edit)

8. Frozen

9. Ray Of Light

10. Drowned World / Substitute For Love

11. The Power Of Good-Bye

12. American Pie

13. Music

14. Don't Tell Me

15. What It Feels Like For A Girl

16. Time Stood Still

17. GHV2 Megamix (Bonus Track)

Include all edit versions + release "Time Stood Still" as the lead single and voilá, a you got a worthy follow up to The Immaculate Collection.

Many, many things…..everything would be forgiven if there was new material. 

But as it is most notable for me is that awful edit of Human Nature, if it has to be kid friendly, why not the Video Edit??….then after that I’d have switched out DCFMA for You Must Love Me, You’ll See, Rain or Nothing Really Matters (god I love that track but I know the USA don’t) DCFMA really spoils the flow, I get that she want her “I was in Evita” moment but it just seems to come out of nowhere.

Since she had already released Something to Remember, I find it forgivable that many ballad hits were excluded. The only thing I found unforgivable was the absence of American Pie, which was one of her biggest hits worldwide. She probably lost a lot of money when Warner included the song on Music (international), so it was no longer exclusive to the soundtrack she produced (with Time Stood Still, the best single that never happened).

With American Pie, GHV2 would have been really good. With two more unreleased/new songs on it, GHV2 would have been great. As a repack in combination with Something to Remember it would have been almost perfect.

The Second Coming (Standard)

I would change the packaging and track list. The first single could have been Impressive Instant as the remixes were being sent out around that time in anticipation of the album. The GHV2 Megamix would be the b-side to that single.

All songs would be slightly edited either using their official radio edits or new ones, so more songs would fit on the album.

  1. Erotica
  2. Human Nature
  3. Don't Tell Me
  4. Secret
  5. I'll Remember - Orbit Remix
  6. Ray of Light
  7. Fever - Edit One
  8. Nothing Really Matters
  9. Beautiful Stranger
  10. American Pie
  11. Music
  12. Deeper and Deeper
  13. You'll See
  14. Frozen
  15. Take a Bow
  16. The Power of Good-Bye
  17. Bedtime Story
  18. Impressive Instant

The Second Coming (Deluxe)

  4. Deeper and Deeper - David's Radio Edit
