Album Review

Resurrecting Martika from teen idol pop obscurity, Eminem took Kanye West's style of production and appropriated large chunks of her "Toy Soldiers" chart hit for the "Like Toy Soldiers" single from his 2004 Encore record. This sent red flags around Sony BMG, which has now reissued 1997's More Than You Know greatest-hits compilation with different packaging, a slightly altered track listing, and liner notes detailing where she's been since the glory years of her solo career. Along with the title track, her gutsy cover of Carole King's "I Feel the Earth Move" and the upbeat "More Than You Know" cover all the major bases right away, leaving the rest of the album to feature album favorites and minor hits. Also included are several remixes of her singles, including the stellar Prince remix of "Love..Thy Will Be Done," which is far superior to the original. Everything the casual fan could ever want or possibly need from Martika is included on this disc, and diehards will be happy to have a concise history of her career on a single disc.

So much more than 'Martika's Kitchen'

It's really funny, when I was growing up I didn't really pay that much attention to Martika, I liked her songs but wasn't really into it. A couple of years ago though I puchased her greatest hits for some reason and I have to say I was entranced. While she was very talented her songwriting wasn't brilliant and you can see that in this CD, there are some great songs on here, personal favorites are: "Toy Soldeirs", "I Feel the Earth Move", "More than You Know", "Water", "Martika's Kitchen", "Cross My Heart" and "Love Thy Will Be Done" The addition of the Japanese version of "Toy Soldiers" is a good one and I enjoyed hearing that. The 'second' half of the album, well it's fair to say none of the tracks caught me up at all, but those 7/8 tracks that did are great to listen to. I recommend this for anyone into bands like Bananarama and the 80's version of Madonna.
