Beautiful and glamorous disco comeback by Cher. Both the album and single went gold. The title song is brilliant (famously covered by Sophie Ellis Bextor) and moves smoothly into more disco territory on the a side including the average selling follow-up "Wasn't It Good". The b side offers different styles among them a highly dramatic ballad called "Love & Pain". The iconic cover is also worth mentioning.
