5.0 out of 5 stars This album leaves me "Spellbound" even now! December 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title to Paula Abdul's 1991 sophomore couldn't have been better. This album in my opinion is a great artistic quantum leap forward from her excellent 1988 debut "Forever Your Girl" which while great, it has dated very quickly in its sound. "Spellbound" on the other hand has really held up surprisingly well over the years since its release and today it is a stunning classic. I got my first dose of her music when I was a young kid listening to Chicago's B96 and hearing all the barrage of awesome dance music from that period and recall hearing "Opposites Attact" and "Promise Of A New Day" on the radio around that time. I was forever hooked on her music afterwards even though it would be seemingly entire eons before I would discover that these were by Paula Abdul. After finding out who these songs were by, I had to go and get them on CD and "Spellbound" was the album I got containing the latter. For the greatest moments on this album, there's something about them that just really evokes a lot of emotion in me that few other albums do. "Promise Of A New Day" is by far the finest track not only off this album but also among Paula's greatest musical achievements. Just the spine-tingling keyboard chimes at the beginning combined with the electric bass gives this song a very electrifying and powerful feel to it. I've had strange dreams of hearing this song in my dreams for some strange reason. I don't know what it is about this track but WOW! This song has unbelievable power that I can never get enough of listening to it. Perhaps it's because it brings back a lot of excellent memories that I had around late 1991 through 1992 that this song just touches me like few others. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars You Give Love, You Get Love June 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I was young and in a vulnerable place in my life, Paula Abdul's music meant a great deal to me and helped me to see thr bright spots in a dark cloud that was then passing over my life. Paula didn't have the greatest voice in the world, but engineering technology helped her over the hump. Her dancing style seemed so original, but she taught it to Janet Jackson first, and Janet did it better than she did, so that oddly enough Paula seemed like a clumsy imitator of Janet's moves, and her voice seemed even weaker than Janet's. The truth is that both of them are great, but for different reasons. And nothing will replace the masterpiece that is SPELLBOUND. I love the graphics on the cover that show Paula under attack by the kind of typeface that Prince used to use to show emotional distress. This is the period when she was experimenting not just with different techno beats, but with different photo looks too--partly caused by fluctuating weight gain and loss--remember the video which anamorphically stretched her out so she looked like she was eight feet tall?

"Rush Rush," the great hit single, had a romantic video of its own with Paula pursued by heartthrob Keanu Reeves; some cynics disputed whether Keanu, who looked so stoned in the video, even knew he was being photographed at the time. It is one of the key ballads of the 20th century, right up there with "If Ever I Would Leave You" by Lerner and Loewe, "But Not For Me," by Gershwin, and Cole Porter's "Night and Day." RUSH RUSH brings it all home, and it's not just about sensual longing, it's about philosophy and the pull of narrative and the way story-telling is the key to a long life:

"Here's my story, and the story goes: you give love, you get love, and more than Heaven knows.

5.0 out of 5 stars PAULA IS IT September 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I always loved Paula even when I was very young, I remember hearing COLD HEARTED SNAKE and I would think I love this woman. I own two of her albums now her GREATEST HITS and this album SPELLBOUND. I love this album more than anything...it is a top in my collection...Her ballads are strong her dance cuts are hot, her upbeat R&B sound shines. Paula was the original Britney only she has talent that is put on her albums. This is a great inprovment from her excellent debut FOREVER YOUR GIRL. Paula I will be FOREVER YOUR FAN, just for the greatness you show on your SDOELLBOUND ALBUM.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spellbound February 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Paula's sophmore effort Spellbound has some really catchy songs on here that will stay in your head all day long and keep you dancing. Those songs Im talking about, are like The Promise Of A New Day, Spellbound, Vibeology, etc. Spellbound showed some growth with Paula as an artist, and showed some really good music, however not all songs are stellar. The best songs on the album include Promise of A New Day, Rush Rush, Spellbound, Vibeology, and Will You Marry Me. The other songs are nice but pale in comparsion to these ones. This is a nice album to have, I reccomend it.

I used to constantly sing "Rush Rush" I still do. This album is proof that Paula has talent. She uses Mountains of styles to reinforce her talents. Whatever the Style she is truly incredible.

Paula Abdul is awful, vocally. She's physically attractive and has been given great songs to sing and she can dance, but her voice is a train wreck. Read more
