AllMusic Review by

Madonna was a former member of the New York-based dance-rock combo Breakfast Club, but she was already several years into her own highly successful solo career by the time her former band's eponymous major-label debut hit the shelves in 1987. Breakfast Club includes the engaging single "Right on Track," the band's only Top Ten hit. The Latin-tinged "Rico Mambo" is another highlight, but the rest of the album is an utterly disposable collection of lightweight pop. Vocalist Dan Gilroy is a weak leader, and lackluster arrangements make most of the tracks on Breakfast Club indistinguishable from one another. Breakfast Club's success was short-lived, and the band never released a second album. Drummer Stephen Bray continued to collaborate with his former bandmate Madonna, co-writing and producing many of her biggest hits, including "Into the Groove," "Express Yourself," and "Keep It Together."
