One of pop's true reigning divas returns to the fore with BELIEVE, a strikingly modern set of compositions. From the electronic vocal manipulation of the opening title track to the traditional inflections of "Dov'e L'Amore" BELIEVE is a highly original, highly personal statement, setting timeless emotions to cutting-edge musical themes. "Takin' Back My Heart" is a headstrong tale of emotional self- empowerment, while Cher shares a little territory with Madonna on the synth-driven throb of "Taxi Taxi." The album's closer, "We All Sleep Alone" steps a little further back, building layers upon a vintage disco beat in an epic that would make Donna Summer proud. BELIEVE finds Cher staying on top of pop music's edge, as effortlessly and as earnestly as ever.
