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

Debbie Gibson's outstanding writing skills flowered in full in this excellent album. Her themes are imaginative and insightful and her melodies infectious. The orchestrations sparkle and so does the friendly cover. How sad for her next album, "Anything Is Possible," the decision was to do an "adult" cover with absolutely no personality or appeal and do an album so ambitious few young people could feel comfortable with it. Gibson could have gone on to many hit albums more but with one bad production and packaging decision after another on just one album, Atlantic squashed it all. When will record companies learn to resist the temptation to keep artists growing by design and just let them do what they do best and evolve naturally? Meanwhile, "Electric Youth" is still electric and a charge of a listen. Enjoy!

Deborah Gibson's sophmore album proves she's a true musician, singer and songwriter. This consistent set of upbeat pop songs and melodic ballads reinforces Gibson as a prodigious and growing artist. _Lost In Your Eyes_ shows us she can write world-class ballads to stand the test of time. The title song, _Electric Youth_ is truly an anthem ahead of it's time. This techno dance tune uplifts young people and hints at the great things to come for a blossoming musical force. The young Deborah Gibson is electric...she's exciting...she's here to stay!

Such a pitty, this is good music if you don't like it prove you are better or leave your comments to yourself. It is easy positive listening smooth flowing nothing harsh. Debbie's concepts are wonderful she is a great inspirational person, someone who is capable of understanding certain concepts without being negative, I wish could meet a girl as cute and as understanding as her, but there is not really any chance of that now is there, well not in this state (sigh) I wish this was the 80's instead of the 90's. All of her early work is excellent, her later stuff his a bit more off-ballence though.

Walking around in my acid washed jeans with the neon socks trying to find an album that my mother would let me have and there it was... Maybe I shouldn't admit this but even now 10 years later I still have this cd and still listen to it. Say what you want but Debbie wrote and/or produced everything that she did, whjat did you do when you were 16?. The best songs on the cd are Lost in your eyes and we could be together, but there really aren;t any songs that I would skip atleast in the first listen. So what if she was the Brittney of the 80's. Debbie has alot more talent then Britt, ever will.

Before Tori, Sarah, Alanis etc, there was Debbie Gibson. Some would remember her "tussles" with Tiffany for the title of teenage pop queen. One thing though, this gal could really write, sing, play and produce. "Electric Youth" proves that her previous album was no fluke. From the slightly experimental instrumentation of the title track, to the ballad sweetness of "Lost in Your Eyes," to the campfire favorite "We Could Be Together," this album plods along with equal measures of consistency and surprise. That makes her on the few to be really deserving of idol status.

My mom bought me this tape in 1989 for my tenth birthday, and 10 years later I still love it! Everytime I listen to this or Out of the Blue, I'm transported to my elementary school years. Now I jack up the volume when this tape is on while I do housework. My fave cuts are "Electric Youth", "Who Loves Ya Baby", "Love In Disguise" and the lovely ballad, "Shades of the Past".

11 October 1989 set a major precedent for me. That evening, at the auditorium at NMSU, I went to my first ever concert, and it was Deborah Gibson, then Debbie, on her Electric Youth tour. A pair of British twins, Bros, known for their hit "I Quit" opened for her. Miss Gibson performed many songs from Electric Youth and Out Of The Blue, despite the fact she had a cold, and it was still an exciting experience.
From listening to "Who Loves Ya Baby", I don't think Kojak sued her. Seriously though, the produced pop sound of synths, drums, and keyboards is tighter and full of more catchy hooks on verses and choruses.
One of the ballads I never got tired of, the #1 single "Lost In Your Eyes" proved the Debster could top her previous ballad "Foolish Beat." Her voice seems more vital as well, and as the song sports bursts of string-synths, it was an easy chart-topper.
The next two songs I seem to link together because of their similar upbeat rhythm and tempo. "Love In Disguise" and "Helplessly In Love." If the DJ accidentally put the disc on these songs, they could've been good radio-played tracks. The same holds true for "Should've Been The One."
An outstanding non-single ballad is "Silent Speaks (A Thousand Words)", where the flute solo gives the melody a medieval tinge. The psychologically crushing effects of silence opposed to a verbal putdown, i.e. when love grows cold, is explored here.
What really gets my goat is that the explosive title track did not reach the same heights as "Lost In Your Eyes" as it deserved to. I attribute that to an alternate radio version that paled beside the original LP version.
