CHER Its A Mans World (1996 US 11-track CD album including Walking In Memphis One By One Not Enough Love In The World The Sun Aint Gonna Shine Anymore and Paradise Is Here comes with the fold-out picture sleeve inlay featuring the superb Cher with a snake artwork)
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 originally had the US version of this cd back in the 90`s when it was released, but somehow managed to misplace it, having only the Canadian version to listen to. I missed hearing the US versions of `Angels Running`. `One By One` and `Paradise Is Here`, so I knew I had to get the US version again.
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 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.
