"Fans of Belinda Carlisle have eagerly awaited for new music since 1997's Woman and a Man album. With this, her third greatest hits complilation, fans will have to settle for three new tracks and a bonus disc of her hits remixed.Pulling tracks from 1987 through (1986's self-titled debut was released on IRS records and they own the rights exclusively) 1997 the disc showcases Belinda's style changes, music changes and vocal changes over this decade.Starting with her biggest single to date (Heaven) and ending with her newest (All God's Children), Place on Earth takes you on a journey through some of Belinda's most overlooked works. Included are the staples, Heaven, I Get Weak, Circle in the Sand, Leave a Light On, but also included are those that didn't garner that much attention on RR, California, Always Breaking My Heart, Big Scary Animal, and Live Your Life Be Free. The new tracks take their cues from today's new wave of pop. Feels Like I've Known You Forever is a quiet love song that really resonates in you. All God's Children is the first single (and it stalled within the top 40 I do believe) although I believe that the first single should have been A Prayer for Everyone. This song could have been (or be) a killer dance remix. With today's hottest remixers this song could have brought Belinda back (much like it did for Cher).Disc 2 is the bonus in this collection and includes remixes to some of Belinda's biggest hits. A funky techno remix of Live Your Life is included as well as rare tracks such as The Air You Breathe and Only a Dream. Also included is the smash remix of Summer Rain.I think overall fans won't be disappointed. With new Carlisle material coming out within the next year, new Go-Go's material in the works as well, fans will see and hear more of Carlisle than they have in a long time.Although Carlisle is much admired and appreciated overseas perhaps this collection can jumpstart her popularity here in the states. Carlisle still remains one of Amercia's undiscovered gems and truly never looked at with the sincerity she deserved and deserves. We can all say a prayer on that one!"

"Great Cds, but the songs Mad about You and I Feel the Magic are excluded from this package. They were hits too."
Place On Earth More Like Heaven

"Though her solo career stateside floundered disastrously in the early nineties,Belinda Carlisle continued to have substantial success in the UK, where this compilation cropped up a couple of years ago. PLACE ON EARTH remains the most definitive gathering of her chart singles to date, with the only major flub being the omission of her first solo hit 'Mad About You'. Unlike alot of music from the eighties, much of Carlisle's catalog remains surprisingly fresh, particularly the Bon Jovi-like power pop of 'Heaven Is A Place On Earth' and 'Leave A Light On'. And though she made the occasional misstep--the latin-influenced 'La Luna'placed her waaay out of her element--she made up for it with such new-wave thrillers as 'Do You Feel Like I Feel' and jangly pop-rockers like the criminally catchy 'Big Scary Animal'.Among the three new tracks, the gently rocking Europop of 'Feels Like I've Known You Forever' reaffirms her status as a highly underrated vocalist, and 'All Gods'Children' places her in Cher/'Believe' territory--she sounds surprisingly at ease with this first-rate(and vocally unenhanced)dance anthem. For those who thought her career began and ended with HEAVEN ON EARTH, you'd be well-advised to seek out this collection, or any of her nineties solo records(which actually eclipsed her eighties output by miles)."
