Taking a cue from Madonna's Ray of Light, Cher goes Euro-disco on Believe, a platter of electro-beats and pulsating club rhythms. Working with a stable of competent European studio craftsmen, Cher moves through the beat factory, blending butt-shakers (like the title tune and "Strong Enough") and semi-ballads ("Dov'e L'Amore") into one endless thump session.

I attended Cher's concert in Las Vegas and I never saw so many people of all ages rocking and swinging to her sounds. I have always loved Cher....even when she was Sunny and Cher. She never lets me down. Keep on rocking...girl.
The first time I heard Believe, it was on the radio. In an instant I knew that I loved the beat of the music and the lyrics too. I could not believe that this was Cher's music. As the song got more popular, I decided that I had to checkout her CD. So I went out and bought it. I loved it. This is a great CD to get a party started and going on all night. If you are a Cher fan, definitely buy it. If you are not a Cher fan, it will definitely get you dancing. I took this CD on my Spring Break vacation to Acapulco and all of my friends loved it. People that had never heard it before wanted to know who it was and where could they buy it. I give Cher 5 stars for a great CD!
I think Cher's new album kicks major butt. This is one of the best albums I have ever heard, by any other artist, all the songs on it, are GREAT! I can't wait to hear her next recordings. Keep Rockin Cher!
Sher is the only artist that I will buy without endorsement. Her work has never let me down. Keep up the magic, Sher!
Believe is the best song,this is the best album yet.
A marvelous wake-up call to all that have been to the depths, crawled out, and now are standing tall . This song and Cher's spirit revitalizes all of us who at one time or other in our lives have lived it!!!! Thank you 'Lady Cher' from our Hearts to yours.
Cher has made a comeback like no other. This album is full of great dance tunes with Cher sounding better than ever. It is great to see a new generation enjoying a true Superstar. There are so few real stars left who have bridged generation gaps. Thank heaven for Cher. This album can be enjoyed by parents and their children. That is very rare. It was great to see the mix of people at one of her recent concerts. Cher will go on forever!
I have enjoyed your music so much.I wish you were very young and I will be in a position to listen more from your music.
CHER, THE GREATEST DIVA OF THE COMEBACKS, HAS RETURNED WITH HER BEST ALBUM BELIEVE. BELIEVE IS AN EXCELLENT DANCING ALBUM.
You know, Cher has always been a good singer, not the best though (OBVIOUSLY) but a very good one. But, when Madonna decides to go with Electronica and new pop singers are coming up with disco tunes, Cher jumps right in almost seeming desperate. Good songs, voice and all but- can't she be more original? Can't keep up to Madonna....
Please...D'you know...? There was always something awkward 'bout Cher....Con't know if it is that she looks like a man in drag, her image is so plastic or that her music had a peak and then never again. She should really stick to acting since she has a voice but doesn't know how to use it. In the music business ruled by Madonna there is no space for silly wanna-be's like Cher
