5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Fun! May 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
From 1986 to 1991, I listened to Top 40 radio CONSTANTLY. Paula Abdul's Forever Your Girl was one of the first CDs I ever purchased, and, listening to this album over a decade later, I am still surprised at how good it sounds. The music is slick dance-pop, but the grooves have a little bit of a funky R&B edge to them, which gives the music extra oomph. There is even a contribution by Babyface on the excellent single "Knocked Out", and this was back in 1988, long before Babyface was well-known in the pop community. Other standout hits from this album are "Straight Up", "Cold Hearted", "Opposites Attract", "The Way That You Love Me", and the title track. Quite a setlist of pop classics! Paula Abdul also had a certain amount of dignity that today's bubble gum pop queens do not. She appeared fully clothed in her videos, and her sound and style came across as cute and sexy without ever crossing the line to vulgarity. Today's dance-pop has a tendency to bombard the listener with bombast and over-production. However, on Paula's first album, she kept it pure, simple, and "Straight Up"! So, if you are looking for a fun, energetic pop CD that doesn't overdo anything, this album is the one! Great for its 80s nostalgia value, too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Forever Your Girl after all these years May 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After her success as a dancer and choreographer to the mega pop dance stars of the 80s, Paula Abdul breaks out on her own with her debut release of Forever Your Girl. This was a smash hit in the late 80s, and many of the hits off this release are still being played today on top 40 stations. To show that kind of staying power after over 10 years, this release obviously has something special to offer its listeners. If you love that style of pop dance music with fun lyrics and awesome beats and orchestration, this is a must have release.
We start off with one of many smash hit singles "The Way That You Love Me," which is a great dance and attitude song that still stands true today. I still see that sexy gold video every time I hear it... mmm MMM! "Knocked Out" was a moderate success as a single (I saw the video more on BET than MTV) but is really a great dance tune with some great lyrical and orchestration hooks. "Opposites Attract" is pretty good and has gotten a recent resurgence thanks to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I still remember how groundbreaking the video was with Paula dancing with the animated cat. "State of Attraction" wasn't released but could have easily been a hit with great dance beat and orchestration hooks. "I Need You" isn't as trite as it sounds and is a strong pop dance tune with an R&B groove. "Forever Your Girl" was a pretty big hit with its happy, bouncy, upbeat message and orchestration. We finally get to Paula's first huge single, "Straight Up." I must admit, I'm not exactly fond of this tune for some reason - something about the orchestration. But this was a phenomenal success and is a classic late 80s dance favorite. For you trivia buffs, the video featured Arsenio Hall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great For What It Is... Dance Pop!!! March 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Paula Abdul was the Britney Spears of 1989 through 1992 (or maybe she's more like Christina Aguilera, seeing as how Paula mixed in a little R&B with her pop songs and followed the "hip" culture of the late 80's). Her music is nothing more than infectious, upbeat and unforgettable dance pop songs, and her debut album proves it. From the #1 smash hit "Straight Up", with its electric guitar and snappy vocals, to the more R&B-ish "Knocked Out", you'll find a lot of catchy pop on here. "Cold Hearted", another huge hit single, has an 80's hip-hop beat and edgy lyrics, all the while warning some girl about her no good man. "Forever Your Girl", the title track, has a very jazzy feel to it, with nicely played instruments and high pitched vocals. It's the most upbeat song on here. I also enjoyed "I Need You", because it doesn't sound like the Paula you expect (a little more mature) and "One Or The Other", because even though the song is sugary and corny, you won't get it out of your head. The songs I skip every time I listen to this album are "Next To You" and "State Of Attraction." These are a little too much for my tastes. One thing Paula Abdul was (and will always be) remembered for is her amazing, smooth, and entertaining dancing skills. And while this album won't make you think (no deep lyrics anywhere on here... Paula tries this on her second album), Forever Your Girl will definatley make you dance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infinately better than todays music! June 22, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This looks like another album that is underrated because of the anti 80s bigotry...just because this album came out in the 80s, people automatically hate it. "Its cheesy" says one 80s hater. "It sounds so DATED" says another anti 80s person. What if this CD came out a year and a half later than it did? That would make it a 90s album. Would you still hate it then?

Its so unfair how everybody thinks music from the 80s is "cheesy" and a "guilty pleasure". The truth is, music from the 80s (and just about any other decade for that matter) far surpasses anything being made today. Artists like Paula Abdul made music for entertainment purposes only. It put a smile on your face and made you feel good.

Now compare Paula's music with the supposedly "real" music that came out a few years after this. In 1992, music like this disappeared forever! All traces of it were obliterated behind a faceless wall of droning, muddy, distorted guitar noise. Thats right, grunge. All those "woe-is-me, my-life-sucks-because-I-live-in-the-suburbs-and-I-hate-my-parents" mosher bands totally ruined music. How could anybody think Paula is "80s cheese" but think Nirvana were "real" and "honest"? How could they prefer teenage angst and negativity to positive music like Paula Abdul? It simply boggles my grunge hating mind.

I know "Forever Your Girl" might not be hip by today's standards, but be honest. What would you rather listen to? Paula Abdul singing "Forever Your Girl", or Kurt Cobain screaming about how much life sucks and how we should all die? No contest, I'd take "FYG" over the miserable, depressing,negative grunge any day.
