These two albums are actually quite good. Take Me Home especially. From that wild cover photo to the discofied grooves inside this album rocks. And yeah, it has a couple slower songs, 3 to be exact and they are, in my opinion, (take that for what it's worth) some of her best. Does this sound dated today, sort of. Take Me Home, Wasn't It Good and Say The Word all have disco strings and beats, but if you liked it then, you'll like it now.
Git Down Guitar Groupie is kind of goofy, but it's fun, and has a cool melody. That's one of my favorites on the album.
Prisoner is not so much disco as it is new wave. By the time this came out disco was dead and new wave was just beginning. So what does Cher do, changes with the times and records a new wave sounding album. CHeck out Mirror Image and Boys and Girls. They are two really good examples of what I am talking about. Hell ON Wheels is the closest this album comes to disco. It's kind of like Hot Stuff by Donna Summer. It marries a disco beat with hard rock guitars. This was the single and it is a great song. The title song is kind of funky and could have been another hit. Holdin' Out For Love is pure pop. Nice song. Now...having said all those good things I need to point out that Shoppin, Outrageous, and Holy Smoke are downright CHEESY. OMG. Shoppin is probably the worst song I have ever heard. Holy Smoke and Outrageous aren't as bad but close. Beware.
