Product Description

Amazon.ca

Cher's 1998 comeback as a dalek-voiced disco diva with the multi-million-selling Believe took most people by surprise, but the process actually began two years earlier. Stylistically, It's A Man's World is a mixed bag, dominated by a trio of cover versions: The Walker Brothers' "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Any More", Marc Cohn's "Walking In Memphis" and, of course, a heavily irony-laden take on James Brown's "It's A Man's World". But among the original compositions, there's only one typically Cher-style bombastic rock power ballad ("Not Enough Love And Understanding"), the remainder alternating between hi-tech disco-pop courtesy of Trevor Horn--the 1980s genius behind Frankie Goes To Hollywood, ABC and The Art Of Noise--and state-of-the-art R&B from Michael Jackson collaborator Sam Ward. --Simon Price

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it a man's world or a woman's world? July 28 2013
By RHP
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album entitled 'It's A Man's World' may not be all that truthful. Most of these songs were originally performed by male artists or written by mostly men, but Cher made these songs her own. Her cover of Marc Cohn's "Walking In Memphis" is far more superior than the original. While both versions are in the range of adult pop, Cher makes her version more lively with more of a backbeat. While I enjoy both versions of this album (US version and Canadian version), the one song I could have done without on both is her cover of Don Henley`s `Not Enough Love In The World`. I think Don Henley`s version is better.
I originally had the US version of this cd back in the 90`s when it was released, but somehow managed to misplace it, having only the Canadian version to listen to. I missed hearing the US versions of `Angels Running`. `One By One` and `Paradise Is Here`, so I knew I had to get the US version again.

5.0 out of 5 stars aptly name, cher, a truly memorable talent! Nov. 11 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
cher is such a rare talent, from a '70's quirky comedy show, to las vegas showgirl style concerts, with an amazing wardrobe,
to '80s rock chic, romantic comedy "moonstruck" with a gorgeous nic cage, to "mermaids", & then the truly excellent classic dance track "believe".
this album is quite classic, & my favourite, more sophisticated that earlier ones, with some truly beautiful tracks, such as "angels running", "what about the moonlight?" & some truly great rock classic songs, ie "the song ain't gonna shine", "a man's world" & "the shape of things to come" - as well as some beautiful love songs, such as "the gunman" & "i'm blowin' away"

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a cher world June 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this cd when it was released in 1995 when i was a mere 13 years old, however the first time i actually purchased it was only last year. This U.K version of the cd is great, I've never heard the U.S version but unfortunately did hear the remix of "one-by-one" released in the U.S - which made me cringe! Why the u.k version was not released worldwide is a mystery and unfortunately led to the downfall of one of cher's best ever recordings thanks to warner!
Anyway this has some great tracks, some take a bit getting used to and over time they really stand out on their own, and in my opinion the best cd's are the ones that you have to listen to a good few times before really liking it rather than getting bored with a cd to begin with. Cher's voice is the best i have ever heard on this recording and a shame it did not get the best of recognition. Best tracks personally are the u.k version of "0ne-by-one", "Paradise is here", "What about the moonlight" and the rockiest track on this album - "shape of things to come".

1.0 out of 5 stars U.K. CHER MASTERPIECE RE-MIXED & DESECRATED May 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Cher went to England and recorded "It's A Man's World" which stands as one of the greatest albums of the DIVA'S brilliant career that should have become the International comeback that "Believe" ultimately became but a weird and unnecessary remix of the U.K. classic is believed to be the reason this project didn't happen!!! Many feel that for some strange reason Cher's brilliant moment was sabotaged and anyone who listens to the original U.K. release which is soulful and brilliant then puts on this bizarre one tone "U.S. Edition" will come to the same conclusion. All the guts is removed along with the great rhythm tracks which make the U.K. release a complete soulfully stirring masterpiece!!! Get the U.K version and enjoy Cher at her absolute peak!!! Please release the ORIGINAL and forget this mistake!!! Cher doesn't deserve having one of her finest recorded masterpieces desecrated!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars STUNNING CHER MASTERPIECE!!! BRAVO CHER!!! May 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the real masterpiece that Cher recorded in England which should have been the major comeback that "Believe" ultimately became! If this original form had been released in the U.S., this strong set that opens with a soulfully stirring "Walking In Memphis" would have put Cher back on top before "Believe" did!! Don Henley's "Not Encough Love In The World" is incredibly moving and a solid classic here and "One By One" is a haunting rhythm rocker that would have been a huge hit if it had been released in this great version as a single release instead of the watered down one that was ultimately released!!! Why and how did this happen? Next is a really funky classic soulful rocker that wasn't even on the "U.S. Edition" and Cher has never been finer than she is on bluesy "I Wouldn't Treat A Dog (The Way You Treated Me). Out front with another soulful vocal make "Angels Running" another winner and "Paradise Is Here" show Cher at top of her game and makes it clear that there is not one throw away on this classic set!! Everyone listening will be blown away by Cher's passionate and stunning vocal on the incredible "I'm Blown' Away" while she is equally engaging on the soft-rocking "Don't Come Around Tonight" which really sounds like a "hit" that should have happened!!! Hauntingly gorgeous is Cher on the intoxicating "What About The Moonlight" while a longing and realization make "The Same Mistake" as classic. Read more ›
