Customer Reviews

The design of the booklet and the sound quality are great.

Her voice also has a unique undercurrent of passion to it at times that makes her slower, sadder songs much more appealing and emotional.

From the moment I first heard Mad About You, I was a Belinda Carlisle fan for life. It is one of the quintessential songs of the 1980s, yet it still remains fresh and vibrant today. I have more memories invested in that song than any other from my teenaged years. While there is a significant amount of collaboration with Charlotte Caffey on the album as a whole, this music is distinctly superior from that of the Go-Go's. Belinda's style and sound would continue to grow and mature over time, but clearly the public connected most strongly with this and the subsequent Heaven on Earth releases. While Mad About You was a pretty big hit, the only other track to achieve any success was the catchy, feel-good song I Feel the Magic. However, there are some other real gems on this album that I think could have been big hits. Gotta Get To You is a pretty rocking song that does have an air of the Go-Go's to it, but it surpasses even the best song from the old group. I love Belinda's voice; every word she sings sounds sincere and heartfelt. Her voice also has a unique undercurrent of passion to it at times that makes her slower, sadder songs much more appealing and emotional. Without a doubt, the most powerful song on this album is Since You've Gone; mixing verses of soft regret and heartache with pumping choruses of forceful anguish, it's a song to treasure and seek comfort in. I Never Wanted a Rich Man and From the Heart are two slow, beautiful songs, but even they cannot compete with Stuff and Nonsense. Belinda had a habit of including a slow, melancholy ballad at the end of her early albums that differed significantly from the more beat-driven songs leading up to it.Read more ›

Finally! Belinda Carlisle's solo debut in magnificently remastered form! Never have the hits "Mad About you" and "I Feel The Magic" sounded so vibrant!
While not all the material stands the test of time ("From The Heart," "Shot In The Dark"), the majority of the album is solid as an adorable, fun nod to the girl groups of the '60s, mixed with the lush pop sounds of the '80s.
Carlisle's finest moments are her stunning, loving cover of Freda Payne's "Band Of Gold," "I Never Wanted A Rich Man," and the album's ode to the ephemeral nature of romantic love "Stuff and Nonsense."
Also, this album sounds more akin to the Go-Go's work than any of Carlisle's other solo work, so most Go-Go's fans should enjoy this collection.
Sadly, the bonus material rings more than a little redundant, with three additional versions of "Band of Gold," and all of them inferior to the album version. However, the extended version of "Mad About you" is pure pop Heaven.
Bottom line: Belinda Carlisle fans and Go-Go's fans should find this CD wonderful listening.

Out of the ashes of the Go-Go's, came Belinda Carlisle, fresh from rehab and ready to conquer the pop music world with the opening bass beats in "Mad About You". Result? An unqualified success.
When I first saw her in the "Mad About You" video, I'd never even heard of the Go-Go's. Fortunately, I was able to catch up in time. Now there was a woman I found unimaginatively beautiful! Anyway, those opening basslines. And that's Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor doing that guitar solo in the song's middle.
The bouncy "I Need A Disguise" is another singleworthy song, co-written by Susanna Hoffs that's got a tight slick beat. "Shot In The Dark" is another song that's an even better candidate for the dance floor.
Case of singles chart injustice No. 103039: "I Feel The Magic" is another one of those singles that deserved to enter the Top Ten, much less the Top Forty. As it turns out, it didn't. This despite a familiar and welcome sugary voice on background vocals: Susanna Hoffs. Sheesh!
In watching a documentary on the making of this album, bandmate Charlotte Caffey remarked on Belinda's perceptive ability to notice song similarities. According to her, "I Never Wanted A Rich Man" sounded like something Rod Stewart would do. Yes, Belinda, it sure does.
She does a tasteful cover of Freda Payne's 60's classic, "Band Of Gold" As for ballads, she does best on "Since You've Gone" and "Stuff And Nonsense".
Belinda gets a lot of help from a lot of big names. Much of it comes in songwriting credits. Her ex-bandmates, Charlotte Caffey and Paula Brown (Jane Wiedlin's Go-Go's successor), come to the rescue here, as does Susanna Hoffs. All three help out on backing vocals as does Jane Wiedlin.
So, is this CD great? Hey, I ended up not speaking to a then-good friend because he dissed it. That was back in 1986, and this album has survived its potency with age.

The songs on Belinda's first solo album was as good of a success as any of the Gogos albums. It hit #13 on the charts and spawned the number 3 hit 'mad about you' i recommend this cd to anyone who likes Belinda or the gogos, or especially 80's music.
Five stars all the way.

I bought this in 7th grade after I'd collected her other 2 albums from that time, Heaven On Earth and Runaway Horses. It was different from her other 2 albums and I fell in love with it. Her voice is awesome and so is the wind instruments and keyboards. I took Belinda with me to the Oregon Coast camping that summer and I'd play it in my walkman on the way down there, and in the camper sleeping that night. Awesome!
