Real is the fifth studio album by American singer Belinda Carlislefirst released on September 29, The album has a genre of mainly pop songs written by Charlotte CaffeyThomas Caffey, Ralph Schuckett and half co-written by Carlisle. It was the second Belinda Carlisle album where Rick Nowels had no writing or producing credits and was also Carlisle's first album where she contributed to the producing.
The album cover was designed by Tom Dolan and is a departure for Carlisle, who presented a glamorous look on all her previous covers, choosing a "jeans and tee shirt" look instead this time without make-up. AllMusic reviewed the album as suffering from a lack of memorable songs and while the record sounded good, it had nothing to support the state-of-the-art production. Dealing with what Carlisle termed the 'dark side of relationships,' the album is mature and intentionally lacks the slick production of her other solo albums.
Carlisle won over many critics who had previously reviewed her for her sensed lack of progression and willingness to take a chance with some edgier material. Randy Krbechek wrote "Belinda may not be the deepest songwriter in the world, but she delivers her tunes with conviction, and puts real meaning into her songs of love, life, and heartache.
In fact, Real is one of the best albums addressing a woman's perspective on relationships". In the second week it dropped down 11 places to number 20 and spent only five weeks in the Top In Sweden the album became her fifth top 30 album, peaking at number Donatello* - A Mio Nonno LAmbulante, spending only two weeks in the top Australia was the last place the album charted, where it charted at number 61 and spent four weeks in the top This is also the most successful song co-written by Belinda Carlisle.
