5.0 out of 5 stars Cher celebrates her 40th birthday in music, 8 Sept. 2004
This review is from: The Very Best of Cher (Audio CD)
Difficult to believe, but Cher has just celebrated her 40th birthday in music with an extraordinary hit collection. The last official compilations were on one CD only, but Cher's great talent could not be contained in such a little space. "The very best of Cher (2 cd set)" is the most complete official compilation up till now.
Cher has passed through four decades of the international music panorama, and that's a real record! Innocent, sexy, sophisticated, she has been able to constantly change in time and become one of the last real divas, who can always surprise us without any vulgarity but with a great sense of humor.
In these cds (more than 2 hours of music), we can rediscover the songs of the beginnings in the 60es, with Sonny Bono ("I got you Babe", "The best goes on" and "Baby don't go"), the ones that marked her solo-debut in the 70es ("Gypsies, tramps and thieves", "Half-breed", "Dark lady" and "Take me home"); we can then enjoy the songs of her brilliant return to the scenes in the late 80es ("I found someone", "If I could turn back time" and "Just like Jesse James") up to the ones of the 90es ("The shoop shoop song", "Love and understanding" and "One by one"). We finally come to the planetary hit "Believe", that gave back to Cher the role of the great interpreter that she deserves. "Believe" is the best selling album of her solo career. Thanks to this dance ballad she conquered the hearts of a new generation of admirers, fascinated by her charisma.
In the collection we can also find the songs of the dance turning point ("Strong enough", "All or nothing"), some of the recent hits contained in the last album "Living proof" ("The music's no good without you", "Song for the lonely" and "A different kind of love song") and some extra-tracks that did not get the same success of the most famous songs, but are interesting anyway ("Rudy", "Bad love", "Più che puoi" with Eros Ramazzotti, "All I never need is you" - Sonny and Cher - and "Born with the hunger", from the album "Not commercial", released for internet sale only).
Cher is not only a singer, an actress or a soubrette...she is all these things with the addition of a secret ingredient that nobody has been able to identify yet.
For the historical fans, this collection represents a synthesis of a boisterous career and for the new ones the perfect starting point to appreciate this fantastic woman.
Incredible Cher!
