There is nothing that this lady could do wrong. Her voice is absolutely amazing, the most emotive and emotion filled around. The power to her voice throughout is incredible. There are 'new' versions of total eclipse and holding out for a hero, the rest are all new songs. Although its good I much prefer the original version to Hero.
By listening to other Bonnie tyler discs its obvious that the voic has richened over the years and her low notes are now wonderfully resonant with the high ones being as grough and raw as ever.
I'm very much looking forward to the live dvd that is to be released soon of the trascks on this cd. enjoy and happy listening. You won't go wrong buying this cd

As a long-time huge Bonnie Tyler fan (since 1976 when I heard Lost in France for the very first time on German radio stations), I am a bit biased by saying that this is a great album! On the other hand, I think she is going back to a harder sound similar to that of the 80s, which made her the superstar she became then. In the mid 90s, some mishaps and mismanagement led to average success, which was even lessened later in that decade.
This album is much better than SIMPLY BELIEVE released 1 year earlier. The only problem on this release is the new versions of TEOTH and It's A Heartache, which we know too well. A massive hit such as TEOTH is better left alone. The arrangements pale in comparison to what Mr. Steinman did originally. Bonnie herself said that she got pressured to release these two tracks again as bonus tracks because they were such big smashes!
Anyway, in the works is a re-release with what should be a much bigger (and better) management of the promotion of CELEBRATE, which is WINGS re-worked, minus the covers. Along with that will be a DVD to keep one's eyes open for, to celebrate Bonnie's 30-year career! The Welsh songstress has not lost a beat. Interesting that Bonnie who had co-written songs as B-sides in the 80s waited to so long to get songs on her own Long plays until 2005 (Does anyone remember tracks like THE FIRE BELOW, which were really huge and great!). Anyway, besides the covers, which make it pass for just another compilation, this is a very good album. Check out the duet with Mrs. Loud I'LL STAND BY YOU. It is worth it! Bonnie at her best!

By Brit Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 May 2008
Format: Audio CD
Bonnie Tyler is one of the best female singers that the UK has ever produced, but her sales in Britain have never been consistently great. She's had some excellent moments though, 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' went straight in at no.1 in 1983, and 'It's A Heartache' became her first top five hit in 1976. As her popularity in her own country wavering for years, Bonnie's record company decided that she should re-record these two hits for 'Wings', her vibrant, old-school rock album.

Unfortunately, as is so often the case, you can't beat the original (although she did do a superb French-English language remake of 'Total Eclipse' in 2003, and 'Si Demain', a duet with a French singer called Kareen Antonn, and it topped the charts in France for twelve weeks), and the 2005 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' lacks the masterful production of Jim Steinman, and 'It's A Heartache' really is pale in comparison. But this album contains mostly new tracks, that were co-written by Bonnie herself.

The overall feeling of 'Wings', like it's predecessor 'Simply Believe', is that of a feel-good album. The production isn't great at times, a lot of the tracks were studio produced and used no live instruments, and it successfully ruins the title track, which could have been a nice song had Bonnie's vocals not been drowned out in terrible backing, this is one of two bad songs on here. The other is 'Celebrate', which is just cheesy, and sounds very unmodern even for a CD from the 1990s. Unfortunately, there is also a French version here as well, as if the English one wasn't bad enough.

However, if you can skip past the re-recordings and the two aforementioned tracks, you have yourself a great Bonnie Tyler album.

HASH(0x985d61ec) out of 5 stars Bonnie Tyler - Wings 6 Jan. 2007
By D. McDowell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great CD! I haven't taken it out of my CD player since I got the CD. The English and French versions of Louise are both great. The best version of Total Eclipse of the Heart that I have heard. Highly recommend this CD.

HASH(0x985d6240) out of 5 stars If Only It Had Been All Rock... 29 May 2015
By Clayton - Published on Amazon.com
Rock, not pop, is Bonnie's true genre. If you've never heard it, YouTube search her singing "Sweet Child of Mine", originally by Guns N' Roses and lie to me and say that she doesn't tear it to pieces. On "Wings", Bonnie has some solid rock hits; "Driving Me Crazy", Louise", "Run Run Run", and "All I Need Is Love" are instant classics for the Bonnie Tyler cannon. "Stand Up" fits her voice well, and has a strong message of remaining strong during times of adversity. "Celebrate" is a fun son and a nice escapist track.

Where "Wings" missteps is in trying to redo "Total Eclipse of The Heart" and being overly sentimental with: "I'll Stand By You", "Streets of Stone", "I Won't Look Back", and "Hold Out Your Heart."

I don't know why Bonnie keeps getting stuck with 'sappy' songs. She should be singing Heavy Metal anthems. Wings is likeable; it has four brilliant songs, but the remainder don't do Bonnie justice.

HASH(0x9917ed74) out of 5 stars Bonnie - Back to Rock! 24 Aug. 2007
By gassy goon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bonnie Tyler returns to rock with her latest album. Bonnie took her own direction at this point in her career, and this album contains some fine hard rock music. Bonnie co-wrote almost every song & has her own band playing on this album. It's great to see Bonnie take control & do the music she wants to do.

There's many great songs with LOUISE, DRIVING ME CRAZY & CELEBRATE [ not the Three Dog Night song ] all rocking hard , just to name a few. Simply put, Bonnie knows how to do it her own way by now, and this is a welcome return to her harder sound of the 80's when she had her biggest hits. I wasn't disappointed at all, & pleasantly surprised how great Bonnie sounds & the choice of material is wonderful too. Call her independent now. It's wonderful to hear her pick & do her own tunes , and it fits her at this point in her long career. Hear this album 'cause Bonnie still has it.

HASH(0x985d64c8) out of 5 stars Sadly her voice is shot 24 Dec. 2006
By J. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While Bonnie says now her voice ahs 'matured' and she can sing TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART better than she did, she's wrong. The re-recorded IT'S A HEARTACHE and the aforementioned ECLIPSE here show how badly her voice has deteriorated. Once a sexy rasp now sounds like an 80 year old smoker's voice.

HASH(0x985d6708) out of 5 stars What Gives? 9 Jun. 2010
By d20 - Published on Amazon.com
There I was looking for the *Original* version of "It's a Heartache" & not only is it nowhere to be found, but when I *Do* finally see the title, it's this crappy remake of it.

So it's no longer available at all, huh? Geez...
