Billboard® review for week ending 6/19/82

Don't let the punky sun glasses on the cover fool you: this time around Cher stays very much within an Olivia Newton-John/Sheena Easton pop context, with a collection of songs she can easily include in her Las Vegas shows. Cher has her detractors, but her musical ability cannot be denied and she handles the A/C material here with aplomb if not sensitivity.

Richie Sambora, Peter Asher and Jon Lind

Billboard® review for week ending 11/14/87

Cher is back in the grooves after a protracted period of concentration on acting. Two natural attention-getters here: the Jon Bon Jovi/Richie Sambora/Desmond Child-penned and -produced "We All Sleep Alone" and demimetal remake of Cher's '60s hit "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)."

1987 Single: "I Found Someone"


1988 Singles: "We All Sleep Alone", "Bang-Bang" "Skin Deep" (also released as 12" dance mix), "Main Man"
