The songwriting team on "Heaven on Earth" is solid. The team is led by producer Rick Nowels. Nowels, who does a great job at getting the most out of Belinda co-wrote 4 songs on the album including two of the monster hits, "Circle in the Sand" and the #1 song "Heaven is a Place on Earth". Another notable songwriter is Diane Warren, who is widely respected as one of the best in the business. Warren wrote two songs, the Top Ten Hit "I Get Weak" and "World Without You". When this album was released in 1987, the Go Gos were split up - however some of the Go Gos were still on good terms, namely Belinda Carlisle and Charlotte Caffey. On this album, Caffey penned 4 songs including "We Can Change" with producer Rick Nowels.
There are some solid background vocalists on this album. In addition to songwriting talents, Caffey also lends herself to background vocalists.Read more ›
Even though my tastes run towards rock and punk, I absolutely love this ex-Go-Go's work and am always perked up by her airal and etherial voice. The vocals are far more mature than 1980's Maddona, and yet, they are not totally lost on somebody who is a preteen or even teenager. I really can't highlight a single track, because the music is all good, but my favirotes of favirotes would have to be "Heaven on Earth", " Should I let you in" and "I feel Free". This is one talented woman who clearly has lots of attitude and places it into her work .
I also liked the fact that her beauty lay in the comparative simplicity of dress and makeup. While she is really dressed up in the cover art by today's standards, she looked really natural in the glam 1980s.
"Heaven Is a Place on Earth" is the track that will ring the most bells. Part dance song, part rip-roaring anthem, it remains a masterpiece of its genre. Actually, it might be best thought of as a really good arena rock song. Not surprisingly, it went to #1 on the Billboard singles chart. Remember the music video for this song? Belinda always had sex appeal and charisma, but she completely outdid herself on this one. The atmospheric "Circle in the Sand" was another Top 10 hit. You can practically feel the ocean breeze blow in your face as the song plays, and it might have her best vocal performance ever. The other Top 10 hit on the album is "I Get Weak," which peaked at #2. Written by Diane Warren, Belinda sounds downright triumphant as she sings it.
It's a pleasant surprise to hear Belinda cover Cream's "I Feel Free." The only problem is that one of the lines is wrong. As written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown, the final verse is supposed to be: "Dancefloor is like the sea/Ceiling is the sky/You're the sun and as you shine on me/I feel free." Instead Belinda starts it by singing: "As far as I can see/Ceiling is the sky ..." But it sounds so good, why complain?
Elaborately produced, this album is very different from Belinda's earlier work with the Go-Go's. That's both a positive and a negative. At times the production is a little too glossy and slick. It was recorded in 1987, after all. But Go-Go's fans will be happy to know that Charlotte Caffey co-wrote four of the album's ten songs. So if you're searching for some harmless Reagan-era pop, HEAVEN ON EARTH is as good a place as any to start.
