When I was 5, my grandma gave me this album from a garage sale. Told me it was great, and indeed, it was the best music I heard even back then. I bought 2 copies of the CD. Christopher Cross, as I mentioned in Vanessa Carlton's CD review, is the type of artist that people really cherish & people thrive off originality because people get tired of hearing the same trendy songs of a particular era. Christopher said once that he was a "nonintellectual lyricist. People in life already have enough demands already." It seems he's a person who is obsessed with beauty & swans. When you hear the best songs like "Ride Like the Wind", "Sailing", "Spinning", "Never Be the Same", "I Really Don't Know Anymore" & "Poor Shirley"... many of these songs has the same messages of beauty, discovery, departure and/or love & lost. Christopher's debut sold more than 4 million copies and until this day, is very remarkable. This is soothing music to listen to. Even when I stop at a CVS drug store, some of these songs play over the speakers of the stores. Artists like this (Christopher even wrote his own songs) can never fade away from musical memories of us. I wish there were more artists like this. And yet, after this 1979 album, Christopher made another album in 1983 that was not as good as this one. And it's too bad he didn't make enough albums, but... some people only have one shining moment. Christopher Cross will always be remembered. I remember when I first heard this album, I actually thought this was a younger George Michael singing before he went to Wham! & went under the name George Michael later. Christopher had the voice of George Michael & I soon realized this was not Georgie. Christopher was/is a different person. Listen to this album and it will make you think of the best things in life and can even influence someone to write their own songs about fantasy!
