Paula Abdul: Spellbound (1991)

paula abdul spellboundBy Scott Goldfine

Paula Abdul, who captivated a huge following with her multiplatinum debut “Forever Your Girl,” has rendered her sophomore effort, “Spellbound.” These 11 tracks find the singer/dancer perpetuating the lightweight pop-dance angle of her first LP, with a few ballads tossed in.

There’s plenty of hit potential here, and “Vibeology” is a viable funk workout, but Abdul has a thin voice and no personal stamp.
