Biography

Debbie Gibson became a pop phenomenon in the late '80s, scoring a string of hit singles when she was only 17. Although she was still a teenager, Gibson showed signs of being a talented pop craftsman, capable of making catchy dance-pop in the style of Madonna, as well as lush, orchestrated ballads. Gibson's time at the top of the charts was brief, but it was quite successful, producing ... Read more in Amazon's Debbie Gibson Store

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Anything is Possible' for Deborah Gibson! July 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Contrary to what the other reviewers said, I enjoy this album thoroughly. Even though this album would be considered "uncharacteristic" to many D.G. fans, D.G. shows "another side" of herself. On the NRG UP (first side) of the album, she performs songs with "a little pop infused with r&b and hip hop." I was impressed by her rhyming skills and, of course, her positive messages thoroughout (Title Track, Stand Your Ground, Another Brick Falls etc.) that inspire me. On the Mood Swings (second side) of the album, she performs mostly catchy ballads-I enjoy the digital keyboard "feel" of Negative Energy the most. In addition, Lamont Dozier, a songwriter of MOTOWN fame, co-produces a couple of the tracks on the album (You might've seen him on "American Idol" this past season as a co-host!). All in all, Deborah proved that she had the guts to risk an "untraditional" album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Debbie grows up December 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After buying this album when it first came out and being initially disappointed with the results, I realize now that I wanted Debbie to continue to sound exactly like "Out of the Blue" and "Electric Youth." She couldn't because not only was the music changing so much in the early 1990's (as a previous reviewer pointed out) but so was Debbie. The main problem was her fans, and especially the media, were stuck in a time warp.

So while Debbie forged ahead, everyone else was lagging behind, looking for the sound of a 16 year-old kid instead of welcoming the maturing sound of a 20 year-old woman. Shame on us.

I listen to "Anything Is Possible" every now and again and find myself enjoying it just as much "Out of the Blue" and "Electric Youth." It's only now that I'm able to appreciate Debbie's growth as a musician and producer.

I'm glad to see other folks like this as much as her other work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as her first two but not bad February 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This came out at the start of the 90's when the music was changing. I didn't care for a lot of the stuff in the early 90's; I preferred the music from Debbie's first 2 albums. Some of the songs on this album are catchy and positive but never had the impact that "Out of the Blue" "Foolish Beat" "No More Rhyme" or "Lost In Your Eyes" had on me from her first two albums.
I guess when I bought it I liked it a lot because I'd play it over and over, and her upbeat songs really encouraged me. Thanks to Debbie doing songs like "Stand Your Ground" and "Anything is Possible" and I can't remember the other song it says something about "energy up" (I didn't listen to that album as avidly as her first two), well those upbeat songs inspired me to buckle down and apply myself in school, and as a result I totally brought my grades up that year. That's what I remember about Debbie's "Anything Is Possible" influince on me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album June 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was a big Debbie Gibson fan in the late '80s. I got Out of the Blue after it was released, got Electric Youth the first day or so it was released, and loved both. I was happy to get Anything is Possible when it came out, too. Her music was a big part of my "tween" years. I was 13 when this album came out.

Most people I knew had already started to move away from Debbie, Tiffany, Cyndi Lauper, and other singers we'd liked. But I still waited for new material from my favorite singers. I liked the single "Anything is Possible" when I heard it on the radio. I was impressed that this album had 16 songs on it. Quite long. I immediately noticed a little change in style, but not drastic. I had the cassette, and the first side was dance songs, the B side was ballads. I enjoyed the album a lot, but there were a few songs I didn't care for-mostly the last few ballads. I liked it enough to get the album on CD, though, even though I had the tape. This was the first CD I ever got. It was fun skipping around to all the songs, especially for a long album. No fast forwarding and rewinding to get to songs.

My favorites are AIP, Another Brick Falls, One Hand One Heart, Sure, Mood Swings, Negative Energy, One Step Ahead, Reverse Psychology, and Stand Your Ground.

Years later, I started to like some of the songs that I hadn't enjoyed much as a kid.

The album isn't as strong as her first two, but it's worth buying if you enjoy those.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Debster in 1990 : Third Time a Masterpiece January 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
"Electric Youth" is still the Debster's greatest album, but "Anything is Possible" works excellently as an introduction to some mature teen-pop. When I listen to this, I'm reminded of just how vacuous teen pop is, in this day and age. Debbie Gibson and Tiffany were light years ahead of their time, and imagine - they didn't have to take their clothes off to sell records! Of all the albums from the teen-pop brigade, I find this to be the most clean and decent, for various reasons. Its also the Debbie Gibson album with the most musical variety - pop, hip-hop, and even soul and Motown. This is literally a record that everyone can love, and it's a pity that this gem is currently out of print and relegated to bargain bins across the world.

The title track (for which there exists an obscure video!) is surely the best thing here. Listen to this on a great sound system and marvel at the sophisticated production. The channeling and multi-layering of Debbie's voice (especially during the verses) are wonderful. Equally addictive is "Another Brick Falls", with an infectious synthesizer opening that you will be humming for days. But there is a gospel-tinged number "Deep Down" that is clearly the most accomplished thing on this record. And the album also contains Debbie's best ballad - "One Hand One Heart" (what a song! What lyrics!), and the slinky, groovy "Negative Energy" (another one of those very catchy pop songs that only Debbie could write).

If you are at all a pop fan, and at some stage loved the teen-pop genre (and who secretly didn't?), then you should search this one out and get a copy of it for your collection. Commercially it marked the end of Debbie's career on the Billboard Charts, but this was a personal and musical high for her.
