Overview

Toni Braxton's aching slice of melodrama, "Un-break My Heart," ruled atop the U.S. pop charts for an amazing 11 weeks, and that was largely due to the fact that two versions of the song became equally famous, extending its audience and format appeal. This also helped usher in a trend where big, diva-styled ballads were transformed into massive dance club anthems. "Un-Break My Heart," in its original form, was a massive adult contemporary and pop hit, and, with its larger-than-life chorus, worked equally well as an unstoppable dance number, even if the vocals were never re-recorded. This maxi-single includes the original version, two dance mixes, and an instrumental of the original. The "Soul-Hex Anthem Vocal" is a nine-minute tribal extravaganza, and the "Classic Radio Mix" is a breezy, piano-driven, single-length house mix. The only thing missing would have been a single edit of the "Soul Hex" remix, which is a little more aggressive than the "Classic Radio Mix." Other than that, it's a fine maxi-single, containing both incarnations which helped make this song so famous, and appealing to the adult contemporary audience as well as the nightclub crowd.
