Product Description


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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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".

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 ›

This is one of my favorite Cher albums, and what I believe to be one of her more underrated ones too. If you are going to buy this album, I recommend buying the UK version (the one I'm reviewing) because it is a lot better than the US version. The US version is very R&B slanted, whereas this one has a more euro feel to it and as a result the songs sound better. Not to mention there are an additional 3 tracks that were not on the US version that are included in this package.
This is an interesting album of standards that Cher does with justice. This should have been the comeback that BELIEVE was. Not that BELIEVE is a bad album, quite the contrary, but I can't understand why people slept on this one. The album is full of steamy, torchy ballads, Western-themed epics, and R&B influences, the album finds the singer sounding vocally relaxed and self-assured.
"One By One" is an instant favorite, a song by Cher that has a theme that is united in many of her songs about acceptance and love. The song did not reach the top 40 but it was a club hit. She does a good version of Don Henley's hit "Not Enough Love In The World", and a fine rendition of Marc Cohn's "Walking In Memphis". "The Gunman" is an excellent, steamy ballad that is an epic. The album closes with a excellent version of James Brown's song "It's A Man's Man's Man's World".
There's other great songs here including "Angels Running", "I'm Blowing Away", "The Same Mistake", "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore", "What About Moonlight" and "Paradise Is Here". Do yourself a favor and get this album, it's definitely Cher's best in my opinion.

It's a pity that this album being so good didn't have success. In the U.S debuted at #64 in the Hot 200 but dropped very fast. And in Europe called some attetion but it wasn't a hit.
This album has a different direction from all Cher albums. It's softer with strong letters but you won't find electric guitars as in many of her cd's or Cher screaming but it doesn't either go to boring.
The first single was "One by one" that apperead on the soundtrack of Cher's HBO movie "If walls could talk". The song climed some charts but it's not considered a hit.
That's the commercial information that I can give you about the album.
But from my point of view as a custumer I can say that's it's a very good album, Cher's performances are clean and excellent.
The best songs are: "One by one", "Not enought love in the world", "What about the moonlight" and "The same mistake".
For this production Cher made 2 covers. The first is Tina Turner's 1986 hit "Paradise is here" which is the song with more rhythm in the album. Actually Cher changed the style of the song. Tina's version was soft, a pure ballad. And Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis" which sounds very good.
You won't be sorry at all with this album.
