Following an unfortunate musical misstep with her band "Black Rose", Cher returned to TOP 40 radio by embracing the sound of the era; "rock friendly pop" as once ruled by the band of the moment Bon-Jovi.
Surprisingly the hit track "I FOUND SOMEONE", now considered as a classic from within Cher's rock musical catalogue, was co-wrote and produced by a then unknown Michael Bolton. However there are no tacky musical traces reminiscent from his glory days as being the lord of the AOR format.
This release has a definite rock edge but still remains pop friendly to please her loyal fan base.
This release could easily be considered as being musically one of her strongest efforts.
The weakest track is a fairly lame dance track "Skin Deep". It has a 80s dance orchestration and full dance beat that in retrospect sounds misplaced within a rock inspired release.
The tracks having not charted such as "Give Our Love a Fighting Chance", "Working Girl" have been produced to hold up through the years and still sound reverent even by the current standards of contemporary pop-rock music in 2010.
Whether Cher is singing campy story pop songs (60s-mid 70s) or being a disco roller diva (late 70s) & or vying to become the next rock goddess (80s) or even a club queen (late 90s) - she remains vocally unique and pleasantly adapts herself into a wide variety of musical formats.
If you like the sound of Bon Jovi then you should consider picking up a copy of this release considering its current suggested budget price.Read more ›
And when i was 16 she releases what i still consider one of the best examples of adult-oriented rock albums.
There is such an energy flowing throughout this CD you can practically feel it coming alive.
Let's start from the writers: mad shout-outs to Cher's A&R of the time to pick up these nuggets.
Michael Bolton, Desmond Child, Diane Warren, even the guys from Bon Jovi...the only song out of the whole collection i do not like is a freaky tune called SKIN DEEP...just because it won't fit with the omogeneity of the rest of the album here (and that's the reason i give this CD 4 stars "only").
I FOUND SOMEONE and WE ALL SLEP ALONE deserve to be the chosen singles off the album, MAIN MAN and HARD ENOUGH GETTING OVER YOU are great rock ballads.
The other tune that might have been doing REAL good in the charts is the Child-Warren-penned PERFECTION (thanks god the lady relieved it BIG TIME live during her 1989 extravaganza tour...).
Same goes for the desperate cry of GIVE OUR LOVE A FIGHTING CHANCE and DANGEROUS TIMES
She even has one of her signature tracks with ex-hubby Bono being re-produced and re-arranged for the '80's...BANG BANG never sounded sooooo good!
And if you like big choruses, take a closer listen to WORKING GIRL: the musical pattern of the vocal arrangements is simply ear-blowing.
I am so glad i got to become fan of such a talented WOMAN!
Do a favour to yourself, buy this.
It begins with three big hit pieces. First is her big comeback hit in "I Found Someone". It's edgy with a lot of force. She battles her way to find new love with smoky vocals on top of guitar rock sounds. "We All Sleep Alone" is a smart power ballad with Bon Jovi's style as they craft this work with a combo of rock sounds and biting lyrics like "You may have lovers wherever you roam, but sooner or later, we all sleep alone." It's meaningful in a world that has too many people desperate for love. "Bang Bang" is a semi interesting rock take on the original, which was kind of an odd folk rock number.
Then the album just goes into another area all together. You get Cher combining her voice with the womanly anthem of "Perfection" with Darlene Love and Bonnie Tyler. It's pop perfect indeed with a slight rock edge. You also get really hard numbers like "Dangerous Times" and "Give Our Love..." not to mention pristine ballads like the lovely "Hard Enough Getting Over You" and the solid lyric work of "Main Man". Cher strikes an even more rebellious song for the working gals with the pop rock of...well, "Working Girl".
The real winner is a dance track out of the realms of Madonna's club scene.Read more ›

A great selection of memorable songs. "I found someone" and "We all sleep alone" are the true stand out tracks and I can't wait to see the tour in Dec'99.Published on Aug. 27 1999
Cher is the comeback queen, and this album was the first in a series of three that Cher released in the late 1980's and early 1990's, marking yet another re-surgance in popularity. Read morePublished on Aug. 23 1999 by email@example.com
