This is by far one of Cher's best ones in my collection.
She surpassed her previous effort, and in 1989 she got to rank even higher on the charts (IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME penned by Diane Warren significantly reaching # 3 on the singles charts and producing 3 other Top 40 hits...).
Reasons may vary: the (in)famous video for the above-mentioned tune, shot on that navy vessel, banned by MTV; the impeccable choice of writers (Warren, Child, Bon Jovi, Bolton, Galdston) and producers (Guy Roche, Peter Asher, Jon Lind, Michael Bolton, Diane Warren and Desmond Child again); the collaborations (great duet with Chicago's former vocalist Peter Cetera on AFTER ALL); the top form of her vocals (JUST LIKE JESSE JAMES, KISS TO KISS) and energy (EMOTIONAL FIRE, DOES ANYBODY REALLY FALL IN LOVE ANYMORE?) put in this work.
I suppose you can name it only by purchasing the CD and choose for yourself.
I am not going to rate it less than 5 stars, it should earn 6 if i had the chance....
