Debbie grows up

"After buying this album when it first came out and being initially disappointed with the results, I realize now that I wanted Debbie to continue to sound exactly like "Out of the Blue" and "Electric Youth." She couldn't because not only was the music changing so much in the early 1990's (as a previous reviewer pointed out) but so was Debbie. The main problem was her fans, and especially the media, were stuck in a time warp.
So while Debbie forged ahead, everyone else was lagging behind, looking for the sound of a 16 year-old kid instead of welcoming the maturing sound of a 20 year-old woman. Shame on us.
I listen to "Anything Is Possible" every now and again and find myself enjoying it just as much "Out of the Blue" and "Electric Youth." It's only now that I'm able to appreciate Debbie's growth as a musician and producer.
I'm glad to see other folks like this as much as her other work."
Not as good as her first two but not bad

"This came out at the start of the 90's when the music was changing. I didn't care for a lot of the stuff in the early 90's; I preferred the music from Debbie's first 2 albums. Some of the songs on this album are catchy and positive but never had the impact that "Out of the Blue" "Foolish Beat" "No More Rhyme" or "Lost In Your Eyes" had on me from her first two albums.
I guess when I bought it I liked it a lot because I'd play it over and over, and her upbeat songs really encouraged me. Thanks to Debbie doing songs like "Stand Your Ground" and "Anything is Possible" and I can't remember the other song it says something about "energy up" (I didn't listen to that album as avidly as her first two), well those upbeat songs inspired me to buckle down and apply myself in school, and as a result I totally brought my grades up that year. That's what I remember about Debbie's "Anything Is Possible" influince on me!"
