Cher is finally back after 12 long years. Twelve years is a long time for fans to wait for a new album, and a long time with which to harbor anticipation. Closer to the Truth is a strong effort from the biggest diva of our time, though not without its shortcomings. Still, fans should be more than satisfied with this record.

The road to releasing this album has been sketchy though. It seems Cher really wanted to go back to her rock roots for a while. The smashing success of 1998's Believe album caused a huge derailment for those plans, however. Cher became queen of the dance floor after that album, for better or worse! Following that up (not counting the independently-released not.com.mercial album), 2001's Living Proof album took Believe's title track and morphed it into an entire album. The resulted in a fun dance record, but not really the strongest album in Cher's catalog. After a long hiatus, we got the Diane Warren-penned power ballad, "You Haven't Seen The Last of Me" from the Burlesque soundtrack. Cher was set to release a full album of such material, hearkening back to Heart of Stone's sound. But then the attack of the dance club came back, as dance remixes of "Last of Me" took the scene by storm, so the album was changed to dance pop again.

But this isn't bad at all. Unlike Living Proof, the grand majority of the club bangers here sound like they were meant to be slower rock songs that were handed over to Mark Taylor to work his magic. The lyrics and melodies are much more complex, even if the backing music sounds fairly typical. And of course, none can deny the sheer presence that Cher commands on her music. That alone sets this collection apart from her modern-day competition!

Nobody but Cher could be releasing a passionate banner release some fifty years after her original album debut to such a tremendous amount of deserved fanfare, make no mistake stellar release "Closer To The Truth" finds the wild Diva in peak form, distinctive glorious passionate voice brilliantly showcased in a richly varied set of songs tailor made for the iconic legend, from many recent appearances the amazing lady looks as great as she sounds!
Out of the gate "Woman's World" is a jammin' grand slam #1 dance hit sensation making one want to get up and move, exactly what thousands of excited fans were doing in New York during recent exhilarating & eventful live morning performance, showing Cher as musically relevant today as in the sixties, seventies, eighties on through to the nineties when "Believe" became the mega-blockbuster to date of her phenomenal recording career.
"Closer To The Truth" grows fast on the lucky listener upon repeated play, filled with a diverse collection of captivating gems each having their own unique feel, soaring & passionate ultimately soul-deep inspired heart & soul vocals from Cher being among the finest of her prodigious recording career...just announced Spring 2014 tour "Dressed To Kill" is certain to be the must see sold-out event of the season! Lush orchestration magically swirling around ethereal vocal make "My Love" another winning Cher anthem in a collection filled with them, surrender to love in "Lover's Forever" then rousing foot stomping & hand clapping "I Walk Alone" has a nice edginess, all hot tracks throughout have that hit sound with strong & clear Cher vocals front & center. Majestic & magnificent "Sirens" has a sublime surreal mystical quality while "Favorite Scars" with a reggee vibe in the rocking mix is infectious.

There are legends and there is Cher! Simply put this lady keeps getting better with age and shows no signs of slowing down. Her latest CD, "Closer To The Truth", is by far my favorite album by this Diva. Really a collaboration between pop and dance styles Cher wisely chose to record songs for this album that appeals to her ardent fan base and we couldn't be happier. Her voice is strong, the songs catchy and innovative and the production first-rate.

On the first week of release "Closer To The Truth" went all the way to #3 on the all-important Billboard Album Chart signifying Cher's biggest debut sales of any of her records.

Highlights here are "Woman's World", "Take It Like a Man", the title track and "I Walk Alone".

After Cher famously declared that "this is so farewell" during her 2003 Farewell Tour, she is back with Closer To The Truth. Filled with club bangers and haunting ballads, I believe this is one of her greatest albums ever.

Vocally, she is unbelievable scaling a new peak in songs such as Red. Pride, one of the bonus tracks would be a massive hit if it's released. It's very catchy and uplifting -

We got Pride
We own we own the night
We are we are the light
This is once in your life

And Sirens is a totally emo ballad -

When your heart is on the run
When the chains have come undone
I will always be the one
to carry you home

Cher is styled simply, using soft focus photography to create that dreamy, misty look like Believe's cover.

I strongly recommend the EU deluxe/Target edition - comes with 17 tracks. Four bonus and 2 totally fab remixes of Woman's World.

This is bloody fantastic! Welcome back CHER!
