Simply put, Belinda Carlisle's sophomore solo album "Heaven on Earth" is outstanding. The Go Gos lead singer often gets forgotten about when the term "diva" is thrown around. Belinda Carlisle has a bit more of an unorthodox voice than many of those female singers that are classified as Divas, but no less powerful. On this particilar album, Carlisle shines thanks to what is an outstanding team effort. Belinda's role on the album is the vocalist and doesn't play a role in playing instruments or songwriting. In order for a pure vocalist putting out a solo album to succeed, the vocalist must be surrounded by great songwriting and great musicians. "Heaven on Earth" does not fall short in this area providing Belinda Carlisle the opportunity to do what she best - produce great vocals.
The songwriting team on "Heaven on Earth" is solid. The team is led by producer Rick Nowels. Nowels, who does a great job at getting the most out of Belinda co-wrote 4 songs on the album including two of the monster hits, "Circle in the Sand" and the #1 song "Heaven is a Place on Earth". Another notable songwriter is Diane Warren, who is widely respected as one of the best in the business. Warren wrote two songs, the Top Ten Hit "I Get Weak" and "World Without You". When this album was released in 1987, the Go Gos were split up - however some of the Go Gos were still on good terms, namely Belinda Carlisle and Charlotte Caffey. On this album, Caffey penned 4 songs including "We Can Change" with producer Rick Nowels.
There are some solid background vocalists on this album. In addition to songwriting talents, Caffey also lends herself to background vocalists.

I love this album! Sure, it's as commercial as pop music gets, but you can't deny the passion heard in Belinda's gorgeous voice. Too bad the bands peddling faux-agnst like Nirvana had to strain their larynxes to make poor attempts at convincing listeners they had passion, because Belinda is as honest as they wished they were. Well-informed music fans all know that Cobain was jealous Belinda was in The Germs with Pat Smear, so he wanted to try to be punk by signing Pat on and using his name credibility. Anyway... Each song on Heaven on Earth is good enough to have been a single. I know many people say that about many of artists' albums, but it truly is the case with this CD. I'm sure nearly everyone's familiar her love anthem Heaven is a Place on Earth, even though they might not recognize Belinda Carlisle. Sadly, we've barely heard from her since 1990. For a huge Belinda fan like me, that's a shame because Live Your Life Be Free is just as good as her first three solo albums, and nobody even acknowledged the album. It was much better than the equally-commercial grunge pop that began to spawn around the time. She released two more studio albums (Real & A Man and a Woman, neither of which moving at all). Belinda has since fizzled out of the public's consciousness, but she'll always have a place in my heart for the beautiful first four studio albums which include Heaven on Earth.

This album represents Belinda Carlisle at the most popular, most confident stage of her career. Following the success of her solo album release, she tells us "I'm not afraid anymore," and declares that "nobody owns me." After all, "our love is all we need," and Belinda was basking in the love of both a rather newly-wed husband and a legion of new fans. This album is a declaration of self-worth and possesses some really anthem-like qualities, although the central theme is still love, of course. I love this album so much that I can still remember when and where I bought it when it was initially released.
If you accidentally program your CD player to select tracks randomly, that will not be a problem with this CD; every song is wonderful, and there is always a good chance you will hit one of Belinda's biggest hits. "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" topped the charts, while "I Get Weak" and "Circle in the Sand" were top ten smashes. As good as these three hits are, I personally don't think they are the best songs on the album; in fact, I consider the wonderful song "Circle in the Sand" one of the weaker tracks on the CD. My favorites are "Should I Let You In?" "World Without You," and "Nobody Owns Me." Most of these songs are fast and beat-driven, which is somewhat unusual for a Belinda CD. "Nobody Owns Me" is definitely a song to get you pumped up and ready to tackle the world again. Still, though--and this is an eternal theme with Belinda Carlisle--love is what is really important. Personal strength requires love, she seems to say: "I Get Weak" celebrates rather than condemns such weakness; "Should I Let You In?

If one were to draw up a list of the most underrated albums of the 1980s, then this album would have to be near the top. It's easy to forget that in the late eighties Belinda Carlisle ranked up there with Madonna as one of the biggest female pop stars in the world. HEAVEN ON EARTH was her commercial blockbuster. Each song is at least solid and several are amazingly good.
"Heaven Is a Place on Earth" is the track that will ring the most bells. Part dance song, part rip-roaring anthem, it remains a masterpiece of its genre. Actually, it might be best thought of as a really good arena rock song. Not surprisingly, it went to #1 on the Billboard singles chart. Remember the music video for this song? Belinda always had sex appeal and charisma, but she completely outdid herself on this one. The atmospheric "Circle in the Sand" was another Top 10 hit. You can practically feel the ocean breeze blow in your face as the song plays, and it might have her best vocal performance ever. The other Top 10 hit on the album is "I Get Weak," which peaked at #2. Written by Diane Warren, Belinda sounds downright triumphant as she sings it.
It's a pleasant surprise to hear Belinda cover Cream's "I Feel Free." The only problem is that one of the lines is wrong. As written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown, the final verse is supposed to be: "Dancefloor is like the sea/Ceiling is the sky/You're the sun and as you shine on me/I feel free." Instead Belinda starts it by singing: "As far as I can see/Ceiling is the sky ..." But it sounds so good, why complain?
Elaborately produced, this album is very different from Belinda's earlier work with the Go-Go's. That's both a positive and a negative. At times the production is a little too glossy and slick. It was recorded in 1987, after all. But Go-Go's fans will be happy to know that Charlotte Caffey co-wrote four of the album's ten songs. So if you're searching for some harmless Reagan-era pop, HEAVEN ON EARTH is as good a place as any to start.
