4.0 out of 5 stars This doesn't hurt at all Feb. 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Cher had a big comeback in the late 1980's with two albums and several hit singles, including "I Found Someone" and "Turn Back Time". After incarnations as a part of a pop duo that was Sonny and Cher, a story-song singer in "Half Breed" and "Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves", and a disco singer with "Take Me Home", these albums had Cher singing her "first love"--rock and roll. My opinion is that Cher has always been strongest singing rock and roll--her voice is so strong that it belongs with loud music accompanying her. This album was the least successful in the US of the "Geffen troika", the other two albums being "Cher" and "Heart of Stone". However, I think it is the most enjoyable of the three, and each song is a success.
In the US there were two hit singles from this release, "Love and Understanding" and "Save Up All Your Tears". My favourite is the latter, even though it wasn't as successful as "Love and Understanding". Both sound like a ray of sunlight on a cold winter day. "Save Up..." is about strength in the face of broken love; "Love..." is about how the world simply needs more love and understanding. I remember the sexy video for "Love and Understanding"; understandably, my mother did not want her four-year-old watching hardly anything to do with Cher! In the UK, where this album was one of the biggest of Cher's career, "Love Hurts" and "Could've Been You" were also hits. In "Could've Been You", Cher doesn't seek to "get even" or have revenge on her former lover who left her--she simply reminds him, with a hint of compassion, that it was not her decision to leave their relationship, and that her old companion had missed the boat on a future together. To me, break-up songs that seek no revenge make the best ones, and this song fits in that category.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love May Hurt But Cher Keeps On Rockin'! Sept. 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
I tell ya, "Love Hurts" is a great album by Cher. First off, I ordered this NEW and the cover was different then the one shown on the amazon.com website. It's just a picture of her upper body alone with maroonish hair. That aside, I really enjoy this album. "Save Up All Your Tears" was a moderate hit but still not as big as the hits from her album before this "Heart of Stone." While "Love Hurts" includes some filler tricks, the standout tracks REALLY make up for the so-so ones. Of course the Warren/Desmond Child hit is a highlight, but the title track is so beautiful and retro-ish it kind of reminds me of an Elvis song. Cher kind of reminds me of Elvis when she sings that song. Another showstopper is the incredible "I'll Never Stop Loving You" where I think she is talking about Sonny Bono. I also enjoy the other hit from the album "Love And Understanding" which is one of her most underrated songs and definately grows on you. My other favorite is "Could've Been You" which kind of has the same beat as Rickie Lee Jones's hit "Special" (I think that's the title?). "Love Hurts" was released in 1991 and during that time other newcomers were coming onto the scene, taking Cher's incarnation as "Rock Queen" out of the spotlight. Even so, "Love Hurts" still has an 80's rock/Adult Contemporary sound to it. I reccomend this album for anyone who wants good quality Rock/Pop songs and/or likes Cher in general!

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Cher June 6 2004
By Jake Z
Format:Audio CD
Cher's 1991 album signalled a lot of changes in her life. After this album, she wouldn't have a new one until 1995 with ITS A MANS WORLD (which is a fine album). In between she committed career suicide with infomercials, but luckily made a comeback in 1998 with BELIEVE. LOVE HURTS follows the 80s rock chick sound she had on her CHER and HEART OF STONE albums. Unfortunately, it doesn't work as well here. Cher sounds uninspired on a lot of the cuts, and at the end it's just a throwaway Cher album. However, there's some fine songs here. The two Diane Warren songs are nice, "Save Up All Your Tears", and "Love and Understanding". Her cover of Kiss' "A World Without Heroes" is inspired and worth checking out. I don't like her rendition of the title track though, it doesn't suit her and I don't like the arrangement given under her rendition. Luckily Cher retired the whole metal babe image after this album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ish Sept. 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have one word to describe this album... Ish. I love Cher, I have every album she's ever put out and I can honestly say this album is gross. Maybe it's just that it's terribly dated (as most Cher CDs are). It's just sound so uninspired. Sounds like a bunch of crappy songs that didn't make the cut for her previous 3 albums (Heart of Stone, Cher and I Paralyze), so they stuck them all on this one.
Although the songs suck, Cher's voice is powerful. She belts it out into that microphone with her background Christian-rock style chorus. Vocally this album is great. Still, Cher's voice can't save this album. The keyboards and sappy songs ruin it and any potential it had.
I still love Cher. She still rocks. But if you're thinking about buying this album, save your money, it'll just gross you out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unknown treasure in the U.S March 31 2003
By Javier Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Love hurts" was released in 1991 and had a big impact in Europe, specially in the U.K where debuted at #1 and had that position for 5 weeks, been certified Platinum x3. The first single was "Love and understanding", which was a Top 10 hit. Whether in the U.S it only reached Gold status and the singles didn't chart and happends to be unknow in that territorie.
The production of "Love hurts" features big names as Diane Warren and Desmond Child.
I'm a big fan of Cher and I think that her best albums are: "Cher" (1987), "Heart of stone" (1989) and "Love hurts". These 3 albums had the same direction (an example of that are the albums "Believe" and "Living proof").
The lyrics in "Love hurts" are fantastic, they're strong and have lots of feelings.
Geffen released 2 versions of this album. The American that has 11 tracks and the European with 12. The "extra" track is the 1991 European #1 hit "It's in his kiss" from the movie "Mermaids". The other songs have the same version on both editions. The other difference in this production is the artwork.
I highly recommend this album if you're a Cher lover.

To me, break-up songs that seek no revenge make the best ones, and this song fits in that category. In "Love Hurts", Cher doesn't lose dignity while being distraught over the pain in her relationship. The guitars seem to wail right along with her.
One thing I love about this album is how within the seemingly standard love songs, there are hints of spirituality that make the songs have more meaning and depth. "Fires of Eden," "One Small Step" (a duet with Richard Page from Mr. Mister), "When Love Calls Your Name", and even the dark "A World Without Heroes" seem to insinuate faith in something stronger than us, which takes these songs beyond standard pop/rock fare. This does tie in with Cher's faith in God, and I'm glad that she chose to record something deeper than what most pop/rock albums offer.
Other gems on this album include the heartbreaking "I'll Never Stop Loving You" (co-written by David Cassady, and a song that I used to cry to as a kid), and another personal strength song in the album closer "Who You Gonna Believe." The only weak song to me is "When Lovers Become Strangers", but even that is listenable.
Cher is now best known for her dance hits in "Believe" etc., and I hope that this album is never forgotten in the midst of her remaining catalogue. Fans of rock and roll music with a deeper perspective and little in the way of hedonism will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love may hurt but her voice sooths your heart Nov. 25 2002
By fabio-italy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1991, LOVE HURTS follows in the steps of her previous two works, eyeing the AC and AOR audience.
Once again Cher strikes back and hits the mark.
She started the year with a rendition of THE SHOOP SHOOP SONG - huge hit here in Europe (so much the tune is an added bonus track to the european version of this CD) - and later came out with a full album that once again boasts top collaborations: the first "official" single, LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING, is written by Diane Warren: it is supported by sweeping violins on a fast-beat base...and gorgeous back ups.
Warren also wrote THE ballad of the album WHEN LOVERS BECOME STRANGERS (Cher delivers one of her most emotional performances ever in my opinion here...) and co-wrote with Desmond Child the rock-driven SAVE UP ALL YOUR TEARS (previously recorded also by Robin Beck, Bonie Tyler, Starship and God knows who else...).
WHO YOU GONNA BELIEVE, FIRES OF EDEN and COULD HAVE BEEN YOU are other great tracks.
A WORLD WITHOUT HEROES is the nugget this time, written by the Kiss guys along with Lou Reed, it is unbelievably so much powerful than your average rock ballad, there's something more here: call it empathy between the writers and the singer, call it the awesome arrangements...it just blows you away!
And if you need some uplifting sound, skip directly to WHEN LOVE CALLS YOUR NAME...
LOVE HURTS is a good, solid product, and Cher is a trademark of the music industry.
Enough said.
