It’s impressive. Her voice is getting even better with age.alfiebot wrote:^it is! Overall, her vocals are great throughout the whole album!

DQ now has 79/100 on Metacritic!From the second ‘Dancing Queen’ waltzes into earshot, we know we’re in the presence of royalty. It’s a surprise, sure, to hear Cher grabbing the mic from Agnetha, replacing her reedy naiveté with the voice of an older, throatier, and more self-assured woman. But by god, it’s glorious.
Awesome! But what does that exactly mean, will they play it the whole week?Debs_Wild wrote:'Dancing Queen' has just been announced as Album of the Week on BBC Radio 2.
It means exactly that! It’ll get played throughout the week, at various points (one song at a time, I’m not sure if the entire album will be played or whether they will just stick with a handful of songs) - Radio 2 is the station in the UK with the biggest listening audience, so should be good promotion.alfiebot wrote:Awesome!

Maybe even this week due to the tour announcement !Debs_Wild wrote:
Silver certification is on lock, I reckon. ^_^
It seems like everyone but the gays groaned when Cher announced that she had recorded an entire album of ABBA covers, inspired by her recent appearance in Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again. It isn’t anything groundbreaking or incredibly special, but it’s quite clear that Dancing Queen was made purely for fun (and maybe to give Cher an excuse to launch another farewell tour), and you can very easily tell that she had fun recording this album and making the songs her own. Making overplayed and overused ABBA songs unique, catchy, and fun again is challenging in itself, and Cher quickly achieves it. As someone who listened to almost nothing but ABBA from the ages of 5 to 10, I like a fair amount of Cher’s versions better than the originals. All this to say…she did THAT.
Best songs: “Dancing Queen,” “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight),” “SOS,” “Mamma Mia,” and “Fernando”
