Cher followed up the success of her self-titled 1987 album with Heart of Stone, whose first two singles did better on the charts. She had retained the same production team-if it ain't broke... But the followup benefits from having better arrangements and instrumentations, while embodying a musical style now sadly long gone.

Instead of merely writing this song, Diane Warren puts on her producer's hat with Guy Roche. "If I Could Turn Back Time," whose strident rhythms with the same synth and fiery guitar from her previous album, made it to #3 on the charts and a week atop the Adult Contemporary charts. With a host of backing vocalists, including Desmond Child, Robin Beck, and Maria Vidal, plus guitar from Steve Lukather, who'd contributed on "I Found Someone," this couldn't fail and it didn't. However, with the video aboard a US aircraft carrier with an ever-so revealing outfit, the song might as well have been called "If I Could Show My Behind." What's also revealing and tried and true are some things I have experienced: "Pride's like a knife it can cut deep inside/words are like weapons they wound sometimes." Words have hurt me too much at times, so I know.

The second single, the power ballad written by Diane Warren and Desmond Child, "Just Like Jesse James," challenging a ladykiller and trying to drop him off the swaggering macho cloud he's floating on, indeed has lyrics with the aura of a Western showdown. This #8 hit also features backing vocals by Child, Warren, and Brenda Russell ("Get Here," "Piano In The Dark"). Another winning song.

Bolton and Warren co-write, with the former producing and arranging "You Wouldn't Know Love," which is straight 80's synth-laced music complete with its host of backing vocals.

This cd is probably Cher at her most boisterous and has a real emotional energy. I particularly think that the songs, "After All", and "Just Like Jesse James", are classic examples of Cher at her rock and ballad peak. The background vocals are over-powering and some of the material shallow( Emotional Fire), but Cher has an energy to rise above the mundane. She sold more of this cd than any other, so perhaps this is her most popular.I feel "Its' A Mans' World", has Cher singing even better, and buried by extraneous sound less.

Heart Of Stone is my fave Cher album along with Living Proof. Some of the producers really bring this album to life, such as Desmond Child (a fave of mine) and Michael Bolton, but the thing that really makes this album shine is no other than Cher and her excellent vocals. All 12 tracks are absolutely fantastic, and there's even some classics like If I Could Turn Back Time (#3 in US) and Just Like Jesse James (#8), the country/western influenced song. Other awesome singles include the likes of After All (#6) and Heart Of Stone (#20), which made the album chart in the Top 10 in both the US and the UK. Heart Of Stone has currently gone 3x Platinum in the US.

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME

Turn Back Time is one of Cher's greatest hits, and none of you can deny that. This song is just a classic that will be remembered for years to come, even when it is already atleast 16 year old. This song is probably my fave on the whole album.

JUST LIKE JESSE JAMES

Another awesome effort, that is country/western-like. If none of you thought Cher could pull off western efforts, just listen to this!! It's one of her best!

YOU WOULDN'T KNOW LOVE

This song is one of the funnest on the album. I was left speechless when I first listened to it, and still am to this day.

HEART OF STONE

Cher really brings this Bucks Fizz recording to life. Awesome!

STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU

I'm sure everyone's felt this way some time in their life, or said these words to their one and only lover. She talks about that each time she finds somebody knew, she's still in love with her boyfriend that she found first, or with the one she loves the most. Brilliant lyrics, overall whopping song!

Cher has been one of the best successful female solo artists ever, right behind my favorite, Madonna. Ever since her success with Sonny and ever since the start of her success of her solo career, Cher has been known to shock the people with her unbelievable style. During the duration of her time with Sonny, Cher had also a solo career on the side. Her solo albums include, ALL I REALLY WANT TO DO (1965), THE SONNY SIDE OF CHER (1966), CHER (1966), BACKSTAGE (1967), WITH LOVE CHER (1968), 3614 JACKSON HIGHWAY (1969), GYPSYS, TRAMPS & THIEVES (1971), FOXY LADY (1972), HALF-BREED (1973), BITTERSWEET WHITE LIGHT (1974), DARK LADY (1974), GREATEST HITS (1974), STARS (1975), I'D RATHER BELIEVE IN YOU (1976), CHERISHED (1977), PRISONER (1979), TAKE ME HOME (1979), I PARALYZE (1982), & CHER (1987) (her second album with this title). But in 1989, Cher released the album that was chosen to be the favorite amongst many of her fans: HEART OF STONE. This album was Cher's first most successful commercially released album, the second being BELIEVE, where it reached triple platinum status.

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME
The second single from the album. One of Cher's best and none of you can deny that. This is a love song that's as original as they come. Cher tells her ex-boyfriend that "if she could turn back time" she would never have said all the rotten things she said to him and that they would still be together. The music video featured Cher in her most revealing outfit ever. The video was shot on a Navy Battleship with Cher performing the song in front of a bunch of sailors. Cher had a completely stocking-like material made see-through outfit with a thin black leather strap to cover her chest and her privates. The only thing the strap did not cover was her rear, which was tattooed.
