"This is Serious...Marilyn Martins second (and final abum before she was dropped) is a great album. I don't say this without meaning it either. It is odd that it didn't sell really it all. It had all the makings of a sucessful album. Take a listen to the first four tracks and you will see. The best one is the title track; it has great drums and very melodic and sung so pashionately and well. While The Best Is Yet To Come is soulful, Quiet Desperation is a great rock power ballad that starts off quietly. Possessive Love sounds like it could be off Madonna's True Blue album. It almost was! Yet although the first few times I listened to the whole abum I thought that every track was great, I did find that that while the remaining tracks are nice enough and fit in well, the first four are the best and demand more listening. You end up lisening to the first half more than the second.
It is definately worth buying if you like 80s pop/rock though."

"Best known as the female lead on Phil Collin's "Seperate Lives", she made her own album in 1986 with one of my all time fav songs "Night Moves" and then two years later launched this, her second album. Starting with the single "Possessive Love" it's a dance rock number written for her by Madonna of all people. The song is fun, the music is fun and her voice can cut through glass. In fact it's her voice and not the whole 80s dance pop motiff that keep me putting this album on.
There are some rocking tunes albeit they do have that synth drum behind them, but the minute "Lay Me Down" begins I'm hooked. The whole album is combined with great moody tracks and some earth shattering dance rock pop. The first album may stand up better in the 00s than this one, but that oh so 80s dance pop still has its place on my stereo... just ask my neighbors and their ever growing fear of Taylor Dayne.
