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

After the success that Deborah received during the mid 80's.
Her career fell flat, but Body Mind Soul stood out from all her others.
As a former fan, I was very impressed with the songs Shock your Mama and the more controversial and slightly atmospheric Losin' Myself which is my ultimate favourate Deborah Gibson song.
But she also added some songs which spoke about real life. Examples of which are Kisses for one, which warns about the AIDs epidemic. When I say NO, which spoke about a very difficult subject, Date Rape.
finally Tear down these walls, which talked about racism.
Overall a brillant but very underated album which demands some respect. Even if you were not a fan of Deborah's in the mid 80's early 90's. It does show that this singer is coming of age and is able to write, produce and arrange more mature songs, then she did when Out Of The Blue and Electric Youth came out.
Do consider this album, it's her best yet.

Singing, writing and producing her own music, Debbie Gibson is a rareneedle of talent within the endless haystack of manufactured pop. In herfourth album "Body, Mind, Soul", she has moved on from those chirpy teenpop tunes, lost the 80's blonde hair-do and grown up with her audience toproduce a more mature album, filled with some very pleasant surprises.
There's a myriad of styles toyed with in this album. "Free me" providesthe little funky number, whilst "Shock ya mama" attempts to bring out therebel in her squeaky clean persona... though Debbie Gibson trying to behard just doesn't quite work for me.
Although it goes a bit pear-shaped in places, you cannot deny thefantastically enchanting (though forlorn) lyrics of "Losin' myself" and"Do you have it in your heart", illustrating a hidden depth never seenbefore. With her great vocals and intelligent writing, these gems neverfail to send a shiver of delight down your spine.
All in all, a fine collection of songs from an extremely fine artist whohas come of age.

Debbie Gibson's artistic pinnacle. 19 Feb. 2005
By D. Mok - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Body Mind Soul signalled the end of Debbie Gibson's chart life, but it's not the music's fault. This record was one of the casualties of the paradigm shift that had turned New Kids on the Block fans into Pearl Jam, R.E.M., and even Pantera fans -- a generation had started to grow up, and Gibson's music was left behind.

But this is one fine record. Even when I was a teenager back in 1993, this record sat in comfortably in my CD walkman along with Pearl Jam's Vs., R.E.M.'s Automatic for the People, and other songs by far more "respectable" artists. And this is the record on which Gibson didn't sound like a talented teenager, but a fully formed artist with depth and complexity. She'd just done an overhaul in her music, choosing new collaborators (Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken, of Rythm Syndicate, which had one big hit in "P.A.S.S.I.O.N.") and a new, more grown-up image. Rythm Syndicate wasn't exactly the most respected band around, but Rogers and Sturken proved highly catalytic to Gibson as co-writers and co-producers.

Lead single "Losin' Myself" was possibly the sexiest single of that year. Maybe it wasn't a great idea for Gibson to play a stripper in the video, but the single is still a marvel, an engaging mix of dance song and ballad, a track that just keeps building up higher and higher rhythmically, with great backing vocals, a killer bassline, a bridge that Prince might've cooked up, and a varied, sensual lead vocal by Gibson. "Free Me" melds a heavy club beat to a great pop song and effectively caps off Gibson's artistic intent; "Do You Have It in Your Heart?" signals Gibson's new approach towards ballads. She now sounds fully mature and this song easily makes us forget the overt sentimentality of "Lost in Your Eyes"; and "How Can This Be?" harkens back to her older songs, but with more maturity and better lyrics. The only dud is "Shock Your Mama", which does nothing of the sort, pretty flat and uninteresting even as a joke.

This album fell into bargain bins about a year after it came out. But it's easily the strongest album in the Gibson catalogue, better than Gibson's plethora of semi-independent albums throughout the '90s, and a record that would be good by anybody's standards.

Gives Madonna & Janet a Run 16 Oct. 2000
By S. Foster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I will never understand why this cd is so overlooked. Debbie's 4th album outshines most album packages today by the sheer quality and dexterity of La Gibson's style and versatility. From the opening pop of Love or Money, which joyously celebrates her unconditional love of a smalltown boy - to the stonking Free Me, which has one of the catchiest corusses of the 90s. Co-written, as with the first 5 trax, with Sturken & Rogers (currently having worked on Anastacia's album), Free Me has the sass of a mature ....Baby One More Time. The public never 'got' the tongue-in-cheek Shock Your Mama, but again with a killer chorus and layered/harmonised rap, it has a groove and r'nb edge that simply oozes sex appeal & would leave Mariah in awe.
Debbie does not forgo her credibility as a performer-producer, for which she is famous. When I Say No chugs along with the emancipated condifence that the girl rejecting a boys come-on storyline tells, & Little Bird tweeks along with a cuteness & joy which raises the spirits and impresses with harmonies. Tear Down These Walls builds upon Deborah's proactive social commentary (with less kitsch than Electric Youth). The album's curtain song, Narada Michael Walden's Goodbye simply chills through the crystal clear production and the pain in Deborah's voice, as she bows out from a love gine wrong. It heralds the demise of teen pop Queen and the graduation to a mature arteest on the level of Gloria, Whitney or Celine.
The album is a perfectly polished, high budget affair. I own 2 copies - never want to lose this one. It is definitely worth an investigation, and outshines any of Debbie's more significant commercial successes by far. What this album does is lay testimony to the fact that fickle audiences listen to many artists because of their cred rather than their talent. If audiences operated conversely, Debbie would have had the likes of a Rhythm Nation or Ray of Light on her hands. Oh, yes THAT good. Seven Years Later & it still sounds as fresh, funky and mature. A cd I'm definitely not ashamed to play in the car.

'Losin' Myself' Over Rare Debbie Gibson Find 10 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First it is important to note that this reviewer disgrees with most everything that the previous reviews of Debbie Gibson's 1993 release, Body Mind Soul. In fact, I would have to unequivically call this cd "ahead of its time." Let me explain....
As a fan of miss Gibson during my junior high years, I, like millions of others, had her three major late-80's/early 90's recording or, as some call them, the Debbie Gibson trilogy (Out of the Blue, Electric Youth, and Anything is Possible.) While the trilogy was extremely successful for the artist formerly known as Debbie, Body Mind Soul failed to measure up.
I remember hearing the cd's lead single, Losin' Myself, on Top 40 radio and hearing the cassette single played in cars. I, however, never purchased the cd and have been looking for this rare find for some time.
I can tell you that it's sound is certainly ahead of it's time. Infused with R&B, it signals a sound that didn't hit it big until late 1995 and still continues to flourish on the charts. Songs like Do You Have It In Your Heart?, Free Me, Tear Down These Walls, Losin' Myself and Kisses 4 One make the cd well worth the price. Here Deborah shows maturity and change different from her first three albums. Perhaps many, including myself weren't as ready for it right on the heels of the success of quintessential pop songs like Foolish Beat, No More Rhyme, or Shake Your Love. But today, it is a welcome breath of fresh air. In reading other reviews for Body Mind Soul, I see that Deborah has a new cd on the way. I'll be buying that too if its anything like Body Mind Soul.

A solid album 31 Jan. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's beyond me why some people choose to judge this immesely talented recording artist! There are not many people who have her skills & ability to create various songs and fabulous backing music! This album is everything a solid album should have. The songs are expertly written & produced, the vocals suit each song, there is consistency, the songs have good remixablity potenial & everything song sounds fabulous many years later! In my mind, she is every bit as talented & has good taste in music like Madonna. I love every songs on this CD. Recommended.

The Debster's Third-Best Album : Pure Audio Gold 29 May 2008
By Marc Cabir Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're Debbie Gibson, chances are that you often wonder why your music wasn't more successful, considering how GOOD you were at it. While Miss Gibson did have a huge hit on her hands with her sophomore album "Electric Youth" (which ironically remains her best CD in terms of musical value), critics often forget that she had a huge body of work post-"Electric Youth", most notably the classic "Anything is Possible" album from 1990.

Often compared to Tiffany, Miss Gibson's later career slump is actually quite comparable to Tiffany's. Both their 1990 albums were huge flops (though Tiffany's 1990 album "New Inside" is still a minor pop classic), and their albums in the 2000s, while good, didn't quite bring them back the way they expected. However, both these ladies released some pretty good albums in the 1990s - its a pity that none of these really took off.

"Body Mind Soul" was recorded in 1992 and released in 1993. At a time when grunge and alternative music was taking over the world, the album seems an oddity even within its 'pure pop' genre. I first had this on cassette back in 1992, but recently got a fresh copy of it on CD (and at these throwaway prices, I should have gotten at least three copies of this, come to think of it). "Body Mind Soul" was an album before its' time, in my opinion. It had shades of neo-soul before 'neo-soul' was even a properly understood genre, and it had traces of jazz and funk as well.

"Love or Money", the addictive opening track, long remained my favorite due to its insanely funny opening dialog, and the simply breezy "Losin' Myself" (try tracking down the equally cool video) was an underrated pop gem that reminded me of Martika's "Love thy Will be Done". Along the way, there are some smash songs that should have been singles. "Free Me" sounds like something off Vanessa Williams' amazing "The Comfort Zone" CD, and "Kisses 4 One" uses a change in musical tone halfway through the song - this reminded me of the similar transition used on "Don't Take me Down" from the Wilson Phillips second CD "Shadows and Light" (another underrated classic).

"Body Mind Soul" is timeless pop. Debbie Gibson sure knew what she was doing, back in the day, but many people forget that she was an artist first and a commercial entertainer second. Many of these 'teen pop' princesses are often maligned/mocked due to these associations, but the fact remains that Debbie Gibson was an honest and really solid songwriter. I believe she still holds the Guinness Record for youngest person to write/perform/produce a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. And that was in 1987!

I urge you to get this. Along with "Anything is Possible" and "Electric Youth", this remains one of her best albums. Later efforts, such as her more 'serious' attempt entitled "Deborah", as well as her syrupy love album "Think with your Heart" are all good, but none of them are as essential as the afore-mentioned trio of albums.

Four Stars.
