Great collection from the classic Cher.
100 Star Digital Masterpiece - the best CHER collection EVER

"Wow. Well this has been a very long time coming. Of course, two CDs won't cover Cher's releases and for the insane Cher fans - well, you will have to wait for the box set. This GOLD CD, however, is a gem. I have NEVER heard ALFIE sound like this I had to play it 5X in a row and then it rocks right into this amazing remaster of THE BEAT GOES ON - I didn't know how my speakers picked up this clarity.
Geffen somehow secured the rights to these recordings to RE-RELEASE them after Cher's multi-platinum THE VERY BEST OF CHER that coincided with the winding up of her outrageously successful Farewell Tour. The European version of her hits was a 2 disk affair that had a lot of wonderful Cher hits.
THIS CD has most of Cher's top 40s but most importantly it is chronological and so there is a beauty in hearing the vocal changes stylistically, artistically and age encumbering that have made Cher one of the greatest vocalists of all time. She deserves this type of treatment. The songs are remastered so amazingly you will wonder why we had to hear them in their previous versions - is is THAT GOOD!
The clarity is amazing. Buy this for yourself and a friend. Everyone secretly (and not so secretly) loves Cher.
Cher is amazing."
Turn Back The Time

"When I honestly look at divas today, I really seem to see a whole lot when it comes to artyists that trry to sound exactly the same as one or another. Yet, with so many manufactured acts like Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Beyonce', and others, it is just too easy to forget about the real legends that have maintained the test of time. Cher is arguably one of those few. For over forty years, she has came back again and again to re-conjure herself for a whole new generation. Nevertheless, it has continued to work for so many. While she hasn't been able to have a actual reflective collection of her music, now there actually is one to truly believe in.
Cher: Gold, Universal's answer to Sony's Essential packages, is a double album reflection of Cher and her longtime career. The album arguably remains more definitive than many could imagine. There are just so many Cher classics to be showcased here including If I Could Turn Back Time, Half-Breed, I Got You Babe, I Found Someone, Believe and others. This shows her career from Warner Brothers, Geffen, Universal, and other labels. There are just so many greats to offer. Yet, while there are just so many sides to be offered here. There is always a con from each hits package. The album overshadows a few gems Cher has made her own including Love One Another, It's A Man's World, as well as other classics from her days with Sonny Bono.
All in all, Cher: Gold is truly as definitive as Cher has made her statements in music for years. It is just a shame she isn't recording any great music anymore. Nevertheless, her music will continue to turn back time. This is truly the best from someone who still sings for the lonely.
