🎵 How Good Are They Really 🎵 Cher

Now who is the opposite of Slayer… It’s time for Cher!

Oh come on, it’s CHER

You’d have to be the most joyless of husks not to enjoy this imo

A truly brilliant voice, always moved with the times and kept it ‘interesting’, and seems like a thoroughly great egg. 5, why the fuck not.

Incredible songwriters.

She’s sort of ok I guess. I bought 3614 Jackson Highway once because people said it was great and I love Muscle Shoals. It’s not great (apart from her version of Walk on Guilded Splinters, which is). 2.

Joyless husk just checking in to hit that 1/5.

I was listening to some earlier stuff of theirs last night due to another thread. Didn’t realise they sounded like this when they started out;

It’s a 2/5 for me.

But if we were rating her on acting then a pure 5/5.

I mean I admit to thinking she probably deserves a 3 or 4, but those 3 hours spent in Covent Garden’s bar ‘The Box’ (or was it just ‘Box’?) for someone’s birthday where they apparently just played 3 or 4 remixes of Believe, already a hated song, over and over makes it hard to even give her a 2.

5/5 because of Dead Ringer For Love

Yeah they were a bit psychy at first. Also wrote Chain Reaction and Islands In The Stream.

I’ve got you babe is a karaoke go to of mine but even that isn’t going to save her from a 1.

I mean the state of this :man_shrugging:t2:

A good voice and i have fond memories of everyone belting out turn back time at a school disco when i was in primary 7 but i can’t imagine sticking any of her songs on the jukebox.
