This special ICON collection features an exciting Brand new recording Sun!
Top Customer Reviews
She never was particularly interested in doing another pop album "I've been there, done that." she said.
Many times in fact! Four studio albums with the Go-Go's and seven solo albums, She had many hits in the US but even more so worldwide.
She's returned to the US after 20 years in living in France (her last album was in 2006, the magnificent and sexy "Voila" sung entirely in French.)She's also lived part time in India, creating beautiful Indian inspired home-accessory line for Bergdorf Goodman, profits went to charities.) So, she stays busy!
We all hope that "Sun" will be her comeback hit and will entice her to record more. It's a high-energy club/dance song that many die-hard fans have waited to hear from her for years. Her son, James Duke Mason introduced it to her and she loved it, so this could be the new "heaven is a place on earth" for a new generation and hopefully another new beginning in her singing career. Times and tastes in music has changed over the years, but everyone still loves the Go-Go's (they continue to sell-out on summer tours) and Belinda is still a huge hit in Europe, but it's time she regains and hopefully RECONQUERS the new and old fan base here in the US and still prove that she can still belt out emotional, fun and relevant songs!Read more ›
Sun kicks off this set off and fans eagerly awaited it to be everything we expect from Belinda and she delivers! Sun is upbeat and extremely radio friendly. Soon as it ends you wanna play it again. It's pop/rock/dance rolled into one yet also very 2013. Belinda has a knack for choosing songs that suit her unique sunkissed voice. Sun has softer verses sung fast then it drives into an uptempo sing-a-long chorus. This is as strong as any lead single from her solo albums.
The rest of the album contains smash hits that we all know from the powerful Summer Rain (still one of Belinda's personal favorites), Leave A Light On, Live Your Life Be Free, Mad About You and of course her worldwide #1 Heaven Is A Place On Earth. An album cut from 1989's Runaway Horses album is in the mix with Shades Of Michaelangelo which remains a stellar ballad that lets her voice glide. A highlight is the 1991 single Do You Feel Like I Feel which has always been a classic for me. The UK #6 smash (We Want) The Same Thing is included and it's the actual album version from Runaway Horses not the Single Remix which makes for a nice inclusion. Nice sound and remastering.
It's great to hear a new Belinda Carlisle single and Sun is everything and more. A great return to her pop music roots and this single will stay highly regarded for years to come. Let us all hope Sun and fans reactions worldwide inspire Belinda Carlisle to once again make a pop record. Grab this Icon CD and enjoy Sun along with some of Belinda's biggest smash hits.
A must have, if only for this one song. Fits perfectly with the other classics of hers. This is a WINNER!!!!
It's an amazing collection for the money but the big news is Carlisle's return to pop recording with "Sun" after a 17 year absence (her last CD "Voila" is a stunning french covers CD). Icon is a much anticipated homecoming of sorts for U.S fans. "Sun" remixes and a fall tour are planned.

or better yet, include "In My Wildest Dreams" from the Mannequin soundtrack - now THAT I would pay $100 to get a studio version of this rare song....
