      dated but pleasing

      Poor old Debbie Gibson, a beacon of pop light in the eighties and now where is she? Well, appearing in low budget straight to DVD films actually. I cite 'Megashark vs Giant Octopus.' Debbie Gibson, shame on you!

      This album restores my faith in her and reminds me that there was a time when Debbie was a poor man's Kylie. Her charming pop ditties still manage to infuse my ipod with small bursts of glee, whenever one of her tracks pops up. This is her so called Greatest Hits, I have highlighted some of my faves.

      'Only In My Dreams' was one her better known songs. Debbie's vocals are full of zest and innocence and she manages to convey all the emotion a teenage girl might be feeling, about the pains of growing up and having crushes on boys.

      I adore 'Electric Youth' which sounds like it should have been in 'Fame.' So much excitement and energy in one song. Debbie is on a natual high as she belts out the chorus. Think leg warmers and back flips and you're getting close to the euphoria of the song.

      If you need something calmer, 'Foolish Beat' is a surprisingly sophisticated ballad with moving vocals and lyrics which warn of falling for the wrong person and how she can never love again. It is quite sad, but for the right reasons.

      Perk yourself up again with the hilarious 'Shake Your Love' which sounds like some jingle music for a milkshake tv advert. Better than this is 'Out Of The Blue' where Gibson's vocals have softened and are coming into their own. It is a classy track full of sentiment and has a delicious warming melody.

      The album is sadly padded with three bonus remixes, which means her 'greatest hits' totals a mere nine singles, which isn't really that great is it? Right I'm of now to watch her do battle with this eighty foot flying shark...
