Overview

She may be pop's most notorious chameleon behind David Bowie, but not even Cher can ignore the Grammy-winning success of her previous foray into the world of Euro-disco, 1998's international phenomenon Believe. So Cher sensibly reunites with the U.K. production team of Mark Taylor and Brian Rowling (a.k.a. Metro Crew) for another infectious journey onto the dance floor. The album is jump-started by "Song for the Lonely," which expands the inspirational theme of "Believe" to include not just your average jilted lover but an entire nation of wounded hearts -- it's dedicated "to the courageous people of New York following the terror attacks of September 11th." The similarities are not just thematic on songs such as "A Different Kind of Love Song" and the relentless "Real Love," which pump Cher's smoky alto through a compressor for the de riguer computerized effect that has been the most lasting legacy of Believe's success. Of course, the effect dovetails so well with the swooshing synths and juiced-up beats swirling around the vocals that it's hard to fault Cher or her production team. Why mess with success? Other highlights include the trance-disco manna of "The Music's No Good Without You" and a stellar cover of Amber's house smash "Love One Another." After each comeback, critics have been left wondering, "Can anything hold Cher back?" This collection is living proof to the contrary.
