The only Paula Abdul album most listeners will need, Greatest Hits gathers almost all the singles from her first three albums in one place. The 16 tracks here include an amazing run of eight consecutive Top Ten hits, six of which reached number one, over a span of approximately three years (before more soulful, urban sounds began to conquer Abdul's audience). In most cases, the versions included are the 7" single edits, which often differed from the album cuts and are hence quite nice to have collected. The only questionable choice is that the Top 20 single "Will You Marry Me?" was left off in favor of an unnecessary "Megamix Medley," but it's hard to imagine most fans finding this anything more than a minor flaw. The songs still sound as slick and hyper-produced as ever, but they're also catchy and well-constructed, and it's no surprise they were hits in their era (which, nostalgia buffs will find, they evoke very well). All in all, a nicely executed package.

After writing Kylie Minogue's #1 smash ''Spinning around'', Virgin records must have finally decided it was time to give Paula the send off she deserves. This disc is packed with all the hits, and the versions we love. There isnt any filler or songs worthy of skipping. The true beauty of this disc is the inclusion of Paula's last chart hit ''My love is for real''. It is by far the best indication that Virgin records made a big mistake by dropping Paula from its roster of talent.
