|The second of the massive selling Cher discs and defintely equal, if not better than the S/T. Take the best five tracks from the S/T and the best five from here and you would have a totally filler free killer AOR disc without a shadow of a doubt. The first 5 tracks on here are where this album is at and are pretty flawless songs. From the excellent 'If I Could Turn Back Time' & 'Just Like Jesse James' to the mega AOR Of the Michael Bolton penned 'You Wouldn't Know Love' and 'Heart Of Stone' - all great songs for sure. It slows up and loses pace a little in the second half, but all in all, this is still one excellent album and justifiably has it's place here on the HH pages.

|Stretching the boundaries of Heavy Harmoies to their absolute breaking point, and possibly beyond. There's a lot of really lightweight shit on here, that's cool, but Cher? Good lord, man, what next? Having said that though, a chick in a bar that plays 'Just Like Jesse James' on the juke immediately has my attention.

|Judging from some of the replies (many of which have been deleted), there are a whole bunch of people reacting to the name "Cher" rather than having actually HEARD the 3 discs that have been added to HH. These 3 discs are quintessential melodic rock. No, we are not adding the rest of her pop discography, but these 3 albums definitely are appropriate for the site. It's no different from Shania Twain's single rock effort, Michael Bolton's early rock material (Blackjack with Bruce Kulick anyone?), or Pantera's early glam-era CDs. Just because other releases from an artist are outside the boundaries of HH does NOT disqualify those that are representative of the genres here. P.S. Childish insults just because you disagree with an artist being included here will not be tolerated. Have a nice day.

|Excellent melodic rock disc. If you love Alice Cooper's 'Trash', Bon Jovi's 'New Jersey', Kane Roberts' 'Saints and Sinners' or any of the Desmond Child driven projects from the late 80's then this is a must too. As Jez notes, this is packed with killer songs like my faves 'All Because Of You', 'Emotional fire', 'You wouldn't know love' and 'Still in love with you'. Not to be outdone are the classic melodic rockers we all know, 'If I could turn back time', 'Just like Jesse James' and the killer ballad, 'Does anybody really fall in love anymore'. And of course, 'Love on a rooftop'. One of those albums where you barely have a chance to breathe before the next killer song hits. Yes, it's Cher but who gives a f*ck? If Bros or Milli Vanilli made a killer hard rock album I'd still give it a go. Good music is good music.

|Wow, check out the "who's who" list of big name music talent associated with the performance and production of this album. That's a heavyweight cast.....I'd love to pop off a smart ass comment (chortle, chuckle), but I see that Dan isn't in the mood. If these songs are as good as Jez and Geoff indicate, I'll give it a listen. Maybe my mom, an ardent Cher fan dating to the early '70s, has had it right all along.....Jeff.

|Even comparing this to Trash, New Jersey, or even the Kane Roberts disc is a bit of a reach, since they're all harder than this. It's also funny to me that most of the people listed in the credits above are background singers, songwriters, and producers, not "musicians." That pretty much speaks for itself.

|This is a great disc, AOR from start to finish. In reply to the above comment, it's the music that matters. Even if this thing had zero fame names it would belong here as they play the music, the Rock sound which is what this site is all about.
