Background: Bonnie Tyler’s second album, Natural Force, was released in 1978, though the album was titled It’s a Heartache for U.S. release.

The album reached #16 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the single “It’s a Heartache,” which reached #3 on the U.S. singles chart. gave It’s a Heartache a 3 1/2 star review:

Bonnie Tyler’s sophomore release was the one that put her on the map, with the hit title track and a cover of “(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman.” Still working with Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe, It’s a Heartache continues in the same groove as The World Starts Tonight — spotlighting Tyler’s inimitable voice while mining the pop-country groove of the late 1970s.
