There is no question about that, and this album is one of several from her catalog that serve as a testament to that fact. Even the opening single, "If I Could Turn Back Time," has a crunchy texture to it, albeit in a poppy, '80s Starship sort of arrangement. Cher recruited some heavy-hitters for this release, including Steve Lukather (Toto), Desmond Child, and Andrew Gold. Not all of the album is hard-edged rockers -- witness the effective ballad "Just Like Jesse James" -- but all of it has an honesty and gritty edge that separates it from some of the more modern Cher material. When you hear the strength of the vocal performance here, it makes you wonder why the producers choose to tinker with her voice in the late '90s and early 2000s. She certainly doesn't need any help holding a tune. This one seems a bit dated in retrospect, with the sound certainly tied to pop/rock of the late '80s, but the performance and musical integrity, not to mention strong songwriting, really set the album apart as one of Cher's strongest. ~ Gary Hill

Cher's triumph

Created: 07/05/07
This is Cher's best album EVER! Her voice and the music are perfectly matched. Her vocals are among the strongest of her career. Lyrically this recording is a leap forward as well. A mix of pop, rock and ballads, this set is among teh best of the `90s.

I didn't have this cd in my collection so I got it and have loved it every since. Once again, the lady with the voice of the ages has done it. A cd worth the cost and the waiting to find. I just love Cher, that's why I buy her cds and movies.

Cher - Heart of Stone CD

Created: 11/06/08
I really like the CD and have been looking for this one for a while. I think it is one of Cher's best and play it all the time in the car. It reminds me of a trip my daughter and I made together when we played the "tape" over and over again. It brings back good memories!!!

I have enjoyed the music on cassette tape for many years and bought this because I wanted this on CD. This is Cher at her best like Half Breed. I love Just Like Jesse James.
