Great voice, not as good as earlier albums.

"I love Deborah Gibson's voice on this album, but the songs are not as good as her earlier work."

"Debbie (she'll still always be Debbie to me) is really very talented. Many people may not know that she has almost always written her own music. She writes great songs (excells in the ballad department) and she sings them beautifully. Granted, she doesn't have a majorly strong voice, but it's unique and refreshing. She has some good songs on here. Butterflies Are Free, Cry Tonight and Moonchild are some standout songs. There is also newer version of two older songs. The new version of Only in My Dreams is quite good. I do believe she has been short changed in the popularity department, but true fans know how good this is, and if you don't believe us, go and buy this for yourself and form your own opinion. I know you will love it too."
Sincere sounding album

"Deborah seems to do best when she goes into the recording studio and does her own thing. Her best albums are the ones that don't leave you with the impression that she is looking for a big comeback (Body Mind Soul and MYOB). On "Deborah", you get the feeling the she went into the recording studio just wanting to record good music and nothing else mattered. Although she attempted to shed a more mature sound and imagine on "Body Mind Soul", it is "Deborah" along with "Think with Your Heart" that really show her growth and maturity.

What I liked about this album:
The variety of songs and although I don't love every song, there are no fillers on this album.
The most notable tracks are:
"Ode to a Would Be Lover" - If you enjoyed the "Think With Your Heart" album, this song follows along the same lines with Deborah's beautiful voice and set to awesome instrumentation.
"Only Words" - A feel good catchy song. Nice Rhythm to it. Has a fresh sound for Deborah.
"Nobody's You" - Love the lyrics, music, and vocals in this one.
"Where I wanna Be" - kind of a reflective song, a little bit laid back. I love how raw her vocals sound in this song. Also love towards the end where she sings the chorus acapella
"I Can't" - Again, this is a fresh sound for Deborah. Love the instrumentation and production of this song. She sings in a higher voice (almost like a man singing falsetto), however it is sung softly and in a relaxed manner.

Why this album didn't earn 5 stars from me:
Deborah has some moments when she gets a little screechy and over-sings a little. One of the reasons I've remained a Deborah fan all these years, is because she can be one of the most talented singers of our time. On many of her songs she sounds absolutely amazing, however at other times she sounds... bad. This album has some of those bad moments. Sometimes these bad moments are from over-singing and other times she sounds screachy while hitting high notes. Deborah certainly can hit those high notes, but she's got to be careful when and how she sings them."
