5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Album Jan. 25 2007
By M-J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Cher's best. As other reviewers have said, it is deeply personal and the lyrics are well written. 'Still' is my favourite, and 'Our Lady of San Francisco', 'With or Without You' and 'Fit to Fly' are also great. The only one I don't like on this album is 'Classified 1a'. This album is a great buy - and as it is rare, get it now, it's worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt!! Feb. 18 2007
By Nse Ette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In the spring of 1994, Cher was invited to a writers retreat in France. While there, she penned a number of songs which made it onto this album, not.com.mercial, so titled because her record label found it too deep and personal, and feared it wouldn't sell. Cher herself didn't feel too confident about her penmanship.

It was finally released as a download only in 2000, a few years after her worldwide smash hit album dance/electronica album "Believe".

Musically, it couldn't be more different. It harkens back to her rock/folk (and even a little country) roots in the sixties as half of the duo Sonny and Cher, with loads of acoustic guitar, and storytelling lyrics.

Opening cut "Still" has got to be the most beautiful Cher ballad ever, a stunning acoustic profession of undying love.

"Sisters of mercy" is an angry mid tempo rocker telling the tale of an experience she and her mother had at the hands of a Catholic orphanage. It's laced with harmonica/accordion.

The blues tinged "(The fall) Kurt's Blues" is her ode to Kurt Curbain, written shortly after he died.

"With or without you" is an organ driven, sixties sounding ballad, "Fit to fly", an upbeat lovely pop/rock tribute to American war veterans, and "Classified 1A", a beautiful piano ballad with a raspy/raw vocal delivery, and a Sonny Bono composition, one of the 2 songs Cher didn't write, the other being "Born with the hunger".

My favourite song is the stirring folky "Our lady of San Francisco", a heartfelt ballad about a brush with a homeless lady. My only gripe is that the song is too brief.

This is my favourite Cher album, and it sounds like what Sonny and Cher would be recording today, if they were still together.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great, highly personal album. Nov. 18 2005
By Invisiboy2001 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'll keep this simple: This is a good album. All but two of the songs ("Born With the Hunger" and "Classified 1A") were written by Cher, and there is only one bad song on the CD ("Disaster Cake"). While there are conflicting reports on why this album was never widely released, the fact remains that it is a fine piece of work by Cher.

The crowning jewel of this collection is "Fit To Fly," a remarkable diatribe about how terribly America treats its war veterans. Other stellar tracks are "Still," "Born With the Hunger" and "Runnin'." These recordings are mostly acoustic, so you won't hear anything resembling "Believe." Buy this, Cher fans, and enjoy a deeply personal work by this astounding singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars CHER's Not.com.mercial Nov. 11 2010
By Andrea E. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
if you are a Cher fan, this is a must. She both wrote all the songs as well as singing them. it's not a pop album. and really shows off her talent. Very different, and a got to have it if you are a die-hard cher fan. this just shows another side of her talent... ENJOY!!!!!! if you are not a die-hard Cher fan; this may convert you...
