Long before Madonna was a twinkle in Jean Paul Gaultier's eye, Bob Mackie muse Cher was pop music's reigning fashionista. Musically, the former Cherilyn Sarkisian has evolved with the times, and this comprehensive collection celebrates all of the diva's ever-changing moods -- from her classic duets with former hubby Sonny Bono ("The Beat Goes On," "I Got You Babe") to her millennial dance hits ("Believe," "Strong Enough"). Assembling songs from every decade of Cher's impressive career, The Very Best of Cher outshines her previous anthologies. Starting with Cher's first solo hit, a flower-power, tambourine-tinged cover of Bob Dylan's "All I Really Want to Do," this disc also includes early '70s chart-toppers, such as the dramatic "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves" and the defiant "Half-Breed," featuring pre-disco string arrangements and a tribal rhythm straight out of a spaghetti western. Wondering what this California native sounded like as a disco diva? Look no further than the Studio 54 anthem "Take Me Home," drenched in a shower of wah-wah guitar. Although Cher faltered slightly with the saccharine Peter Cetera duet "After All," it pales next to her '80s triumphs as a rock singer on hook-laden, guitar-driven hits such as "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "I Found Someone." Fans who just came on board with Cher's more recent techno phase are rewarded with a frenetic Rodney Jerkins remix of 2002's "A Different Kind of Love Song." Although 2003 finds her staging a farewell tour, this collection is a clear indicator that the beat will indeed go on for Cher.
