Cher proves unstoppable with this 1998 release whose title track shot straight to the #1 spot on Billboard's Top-40! A veteran recording artist of 33 years, Cher slides effortlessly into the Euro-disco pop sound that dominated '90s dance halls. Shake your money maker with this newly remastered album on CD.
Cher's recording career has long taken a back seat to her acting pursuits, but with Believe she's back with a vengeance as a throbbing disco diva. Although no fewer than five producers with dance pedigrees are along for the project (including Todd Terry, Junior Vasquez of Madonna fame, and Rob Dickins, who helped resurrect Rod Stewart's ailing career), this is by no means a dance album in the '90s trip-hop sense of the term. Rather, it's a tour de force that summons mid-'70s images of strobe-lighted dance floors, sequined miniskirts, and writhing bodies. In "Power," Cher wails, "Ain't nothing changed much through the years." Not a bad thing in this case, since Cher's star was still rising in the steamy '70s and '80s with a string of hits that included the disco gem "Take Me Home" and the haunting "If I Could Turn Back Time." Although not blessed with much vocal range, Cher knows how to work a song with her trademark sultry, slightly ironic delivery. And she's certainly in fine form on the masterful title track, which is marred only by the intrusive, anachronistic wah-wah vocal effect. --Jaan Uhelszki

Cher's ''Believe'' along with Madonna's ''Ray Of Light'' were both probably the best released albums in the year 1998. I have never again managed to enjoy an album the way I enjoyed those two and I'm glad that both albums won very deserving Grammy's. This one having winning the ''Best Dance Album'' of the year.
I will never forget when I rushed out to the Music store after hearing it on the radio, I had to wait 1 week before I was able to buy the CD, because nearly every music store I went to in Center town told me that they had sold out of ''Believe''. And Talking About Videos? ''Believe'' in my opinion was one of the coolest Videos back in the 90's.
1. Believe. Produced at ''Dream House Studios'', received first quality in digital technology. The way the song starts off is very reflecting then it taps into delicious and sharp disco beats which build up to her vocals. Very Hot dance track.
2. The Power. This track features Cher in her semi mystical and pop state. This is a good track, but the remaining tracks on this album clearly outshine this one.
3. Runaway. This is really a potent & powerful track, I was so disappointed when I heard it wasn't going to be released as single, It was released as a promo but didn't manage to get enough attention. If you want to hear something rather sad and mind-blowing then you'd like this track.
4. All Or Nothing. This track, which was produced by the ''Metro'' crew with the influence of Todd Terry (If I'm correct). This was the third single off this album, it was released while Cher was doing the ''Believe'' Tour in Las Vegas.Read more ›
Her follow up album, Living Proof, was created with the same writers and producers but lost a lot of the magic this album had unfortunately.
For Cher fans this is probably the best album of her career.
This album is as enjoyable today as it was back in 1998. The album and the singer are true classics.
By the way,the best tracks on this album are "Runaway" found on track 3 "Strong Enough" found on track 5 "Takin' back my heart" found on track 7 "Taxi Taxi" found on track 8 and my personal favourite is "Love is the groove" with nice lyrics and messages.
The We all sleep alone dance mix is better than the original version.Overall the album is very nicely done and is one of the best CD's i have!! RATING:10/10
Strong enough-its also a song that many would enjoy after hearing for the first time. I love it cus' its so silly and it has such a fun vibe.
All or nothing is similiar to song for the lonely almost. it has that feeling thats so raw and down to the soul.
The power- its such an interesting song, like no other Cher's ever done.
And of course there are many more. I would have to say my least favorite on this album would have to be "taken back my heart." Nothings there, its just to bland and i don't care for it.
So there you have it! Buy it, and enjoy!(...)

This is a Fantastic Cd of Cher's. Cher helped to arrange the paragraphs and do a few touch ups on Believe and the sound effects were all Cher's idea and the first ever in the music... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Donna C
Believe is a pretty good album. The singing is awesome; but the lyrics are pretty stupid and inane. She has never been good lyricist and that is pretty evident on this album. Read morePublished on June 14 2004 by B. Viberg
This is a good album by Cher! I think that she got tired of singing midtempo rock songs and wanted to get back to dancing again. Read morePublished on May 30 2004 by Preston L. Moreaux
Cher's voice never ages. Her voice is so powerful and strong.
This CD is definitely on of my faves, and I'm a Cher fan.
You go Cher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cher's 1998 success of "Believe" marks her as the oldest woman to ever have a chart topper, and a number one hit. Read morePublished on March 24 2004
To the 1st Cher album I bought. It's totally different from her past work - and in my opinion...that's a good thing.
Cher also released her BEST remixes off of 'Believe'. Read more
