Unknown treasure in the U.S
Javier Lopez | Peru | 04/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Love hurts" was released in 1991 and had a big impact in Europe, specially in the U.K where debuted at #1 and had that position for 5 weeks, been certified Platinum x3. The first single was "Love and understanding", which was a Top 10 hit. Whether in the U.S it only reached Gold status and the singles didn't chart and happends to be unknow in that territorie.
The production of "Love hurts" features big names as Diane Warren and Desmond Child.
I'm a big fan of Cher and I think that her best albums are: "Cher" (1987), "Heart of stone" (1989) and "Love hurts". These 3 albums had the same direction (an example of that are the albums "Believe" and "Living proof").
The lyrics in "Love hurts" are fantastic, they're strong and have lots of feelings.
Geffen released 2 versions of this album. The American that has 11 tracks and the European with 12. The "extra" track is the 1991 European #1 hit "It's in his kiss" from the movie "Mermaids". The other songs have the same version on both editions. The other difference in this production is the artwork.
I highly recommend this album if you're a Cher lover."

"-Love Hurts (1991)-

Cher is definately one of the best singers around today and certainly one of the greatest survivors in the music industry. In 1998, she released "Believe" and that was it - she was popular again. This song made her famous all over again. The album "Believe" was also a great effort, and one of Cher's best, but this also remains one of Cher's best album's. The album hit #1 in the UK and includes the singles "Love Hurts", "Save Up All Your Tears", "Love And Understanding", "It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)" and "Could've Been You". "It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)" and "Love And Understanding" both hit the Top 10 in the UK, however the other singles faired poorly on the Charts - none of the other three even hit the Top 20! All of the songs on this album had the ability to become singles, but only five got the chance...

1. Save Up All Your Tears (10/10)
2. Love Hurts (10/10)
3. Love And Understanding (10/10)
4. Fires Of Eden (10/10)
5. I'll Never Stop Loving You (10/10)
6. One Small Step (10/10)
7. A World Without Heroes (10/10)
8. Could've Been You (10/10)
9. When Love Calls Your Name (10/10)
10. When Lovers Become Strangers (10/10)
11. Who You Gonna Believe (10/10)
12. It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song) (10/10)
Overall: 120/120

This is one of the very few album's I have where I'd give every song 10/10. All of the songs on this album are outstanding, and as I said above, they all had the opportunity to be released as singles. My favourite song on the album is "When Love Calls Your Name". "Save Up All Your Tears" is one of Cher's best singles. The single only hit #37 in the UK but remains one of my favourites. "Love Hurts" only hit #43 and although I like loads of songs on the album more than this one, it's still excellent and I still gave it 10/10. "Love And Understanding" hit #10 in the UK, and is a great song about needing more love and understanding in the world. "Could Have Been You" was another single from this album - it hit #31 in the UK, whereas "It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)" from the film MERMAIDS, was the lucky #1. The album tracks must not be missed either, especially "When Love Calls Your Name" as this song has a strong message and Cher's vocals are great!

My top five:
5. Who You Gonna Believe
4. It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)
3. Save Up All Your Tears
2. Could've Been You
1. When Love Calls Your Name"
