Unless you're an old-school goth, it's generally not a good sign for your breakthrough hit to be a somber dirge about depression and hopelessness. Unfortunately, Toy Soldiers is by far the best offering on this album, followed closely by minor hits like Cross My Heart. Like many other followers of the pop scene, I've often wondered why Martika never hit it big, and after listening to her entire self-titled album, I have to conclude that she just never had the material. Most of the songs sound like they were cranked out by a machine, and the album gets *really* banal near the end. Additionally...and it's kinda tough to admit this...she's not that great a singer. When she's working within her range, she's fine (probably the main reason Toy Soldiers was her breakthrough hit), but you can clearly hear her straining on some songs, especially See If I Care.
Nonetheless, this is decent pop, and definitely worth it if you can get it cheap (and you can ALWAYS get it cheap on cdnow.com!). Just don't get any illusions about a comeback, at least not with the kind of songs here.

Martika's 1988 release was dance pop music at it's best. Here, you're served with savvy electronic beats with rock breaks, solid vocals, and very significant lyrics. In my opinion, I do not agree with what one of the reviewer on [...] said about her vocals: "Not just the Madonna wannabe she is often remembered as", and "Her voice is thin and a bit limited, but she surrounds herself with producers who understand how to put a sheen on a great pop gem." Her voice in my opinion, is not thin and limited. She at times reminds me of Stacey Q, but with better vocals, and better dance hooks. But I do admit that at times her high pitched voice can be repetitive. I recommend this to fans of pop music between 1987-1989 era. you won't be dissapointed.

People this girls been around since she was a little girl! If I recall she was a cast memeber on Kid's Incorporated, I tthink Allanis morrisette, jennifer love hewitt, and people like that came off of that show, it's was like mickey mouse clubs competition, Anyway Toy Soldier is a biography, appearently she lived a very Drew Barrymore type of childhood, as in strung on cola at 12 years old, anyways thought id put my 2 cents in as well as I remember, Toy Soldier is Next to perfect, cant say that for the rest of the album though,
