Product Description


This apparent camp classic came and went in 1982 without so much as one week on the Billboard charts. Cher fans who dig her late-'80s power-ballad phase might like I Paralyze, an early stab at the genre (never mind the cover's new wave styling). Silly love songs from the pens of Desmond Child, John Waite, and Jacques Morali are, um, highlights, as is the way Cher's vocal, er, prowess is buried deep in the title track's mix. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Discovery of early 80's cd thrills July 12 2000
Format:Audio CD
I am a gigantic fan of Cher's,except for an interval of 10 yrs.(1980-1990).When i purchased this cd 6 months ago,based on an internet fan club review,I was "thrilled"!A different flavor for Cher fans-you can't sit still during title track-& her voice is beautifully expressive thruout!

2.0 out of 5 stars This cd is not Cher's Best work April 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Despite the title tracks great commercial grind,the rest of this cd is pure pop surface. Cher gives her all, but the center of the lp is not to be found.There are few tracks,and the rockish power ballad singing is hard and over emotive. Cher does this one better, with the 1995 cd(or is it 96),It's a Man's World.Blame it on producton, or Cher's lack of focus. The cover is post punk, but the cd is not.It is mediocre .

5.0 out of 5 stars A HIDDEN treasure that will PARALYZE YOU ! Sept. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of CHER's best and most underrated projects.
The year 1982 was a time for BETTE DAVIS EYES on the pop charts.
At the time, most female vocalists with the exception of KIM CARNES, LAURA BRANNIGAN, SHEENA EASTON & JUICE NEWTON were being ignored by retail and the BILLBOARD CHARTS.

The superb early 1980's production on the title track of this CD comes from the musical genius known for producing the sound of the #1 hit MAGIC (Xanadu) for OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN.
You'll even get the same musical feel when listening to the title track.
This CD is really worth purchasing.
I PARALYZE reveals to the listeners yet another texture and level of the multi talented artist known to the world as simply CHER !

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good! Sept. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Yes, it's an album from 1982, which is evidenced by the cover. But the packaging doesn't do the contents justice. This is one GOOD album!
It's solid, early-'80s rock light years ahead of what was being played on the radio at that time. Why this album wasn't a hit is beyond me. From the opening of the girl group-esque single "Rudy" to the synth-pop of the title track, this CD delivers Cher in fine vocal form...and performing each song perfectly. My only regret with buying this CD is that I didn't buy it sooner! I am not a hard-core Cher fan, but this CD tempts me to become one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cher...You Definetely Paralyze Aug. 7 2002
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
I Paralyze is a superb camp classic. The simple melodic lyrics and the order of the songs create a easy and fun listening experience. Each song has a listenable quality, which makes this album very marketable (if it had been marketed). The title track, one of Cher's favorite pre-Believe era songs, even had "re-make" writen all over it in Cher's mind. An Amazing blend of first rate singles, followed by a powerful ballad, cruise into a set of 4 amazing up beat tunes, and then the LP concludes with a country-style Dolly Parton-ish "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind," which proove Cher could be a first rate country girl...in case she couldnt make it in the real recording industry. The amazingly up-beat and happy "Back on the Street Again" is Cher's pre "All or Nothing" personal theme song and "The Book of Love" see's Cher yelling "stupid cupid!" like a little broken hearted girl. I truly Believe (pun intended) that this "short but sweet" style cd is a non-dancy 80's style of Believe. The LP is short, but every song is great. There are no over powering bass beats, no long drawn out repetative songs, and no (lets face it) bad songs. Brilliant! Absolutely Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the 80's? Great for a Cher fans! Nov. 26 2001
By Howdy
Format:Audio CD
OK, this maybe isn't groundbreaking work, but as a huge Cher fan, I love it. Fun to throw into the CD player as a little retro treat. Especially when you want some Cher that hasn't been played 100 times on the radio...trust me, this has not been played much on the radio. But it really is some pretty great music with a couple real standout tunes... Rudy and Do I Ever Cross Your Mind are my favorites. (Actually, Do I Ever Cross Your Mind probably makes it onto my Top 10 Cher list...and that is a tough list!) ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars John Farrar's production is great! June 12 2001
Format:Audio CD
My main criticism is: Is the title song the only one she did with John Farrar (whom I adore for his work with Olivia!)? By far, the most startling and interesting thing on the album. "Rudy" is a good, Brill-building sounding production and it has good instrumentation. I admit the songs on this one aren't the best overall, but as all of Cher's efforts, there's always something of interest.
