Out of nowhere in late 1979 came this great debut album from Christopher Cross which earned four grammys in 1980 including best album and best new artist. From the smooth rocking energy of the fantastic song and tribute to the great Little Feat singer Lowell George, "Ride Like The Wind" to the absolutely beautiful, tranquil classic, personal all-time favorite ballad "Sailing" (Best Song-Best Record - 1980), this album has the all ingredients to be hailed a classic.
Other great moments include the upbeat, memorable "Say You'll Be Mine" and gentle, flowing gem "Never Be The Same". The smooth, consistent texture of this album continues with excellent pop savvy, relaxing ballads "I Really Don't Care Anymore", "Poor Shirley" , "Spinning" , "The Light Is On" and the enjoyable closer, "Minstrel Gigolo".
Cross definitely had the extraordinary pop smarts and songwriting abilities to put this album together produced wonderfully by Michael Omartian as an all-star group of guest musicians appeared throughout that included notables Michael McDonald, Larry Carlton, Don Henley, Nicolette Larson, J.D. Souther and Eric Johnson.
A must have for any collection.....................

Throughout my years of listening to music, Christopher Cross has always been one of my favorites. From his upbeat classic rock songs to his beautiful ballads, one just cannot like this great vocalist. This album is Christopher's debut album, and the one that jump started his career. The hits "Never be the Same, Sailing, Ride Like the Wind, and Minstrel Gigolo" all put Christopher Cross on the map. Since I love this album so much I will go through and rate each song:
"Say You'll be Mine"-A very beautiful upbeat 80's sounding ballad that will have you singing along. 5/5
"Never Be the Same"-Yet another wonderful song that I enjoy listening to over and over. For some reason it just never gets old...5/5
Moving on to the less popular hits on the album..."Poor Shirley" is a nice mid-tempo song that has a lot going for it. "Spinning" is primarily a generic ballad, not too particularly fond of this one. "The Light is On" is a pleasant uptempo song that really adds some flavor to the album. "I Really Don't Know Anymore"-Another wonderful ballad from Chris, another one of my favorites. Spinning gets a 3/5 while the rest get a 4.5/5.
"Ride Like the Wind"-One of the best songs on the album, very upbeat and Michael McDonald backing the vocals. "And, I've got a long way to go, to make it to the border of Mexico..." 5/5
"Sailing"-Words can't describe how much this song means to me. Far and Away the best song on the album. The enchanting lyrics and smooth music will help you drift away to Neverland. This is the song that defines Christopher Cross. 6/5
"Minstrel Gigolo"-A song about rock stars, is a nice mid-tempo song that runs a bit long, but has a lot of heart.

Even though this came out before I was alive, I remember growing up with this and countless other music of the era. This leans on the softer side of my tastes. However, it's interesting enough to make it a good listen. This was huge in the early 80s, winning several grammys, and quite a few of the songs are still fairly known today. It has a lighter 80s pop sound, but retains some of the 70s as well. It's comparable to artists like Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Hornsby & Toto.
One of the big hits is the playful, outlaw story in the uptempo 'Ride Like the Wind.' I'd call it classic rock lite. Also, the soothing, yet melodic ballad 'Sailing' was a surprise hit. It's a very relaxing, but musically interesting love song (in sound). Why can't todays's ballads sound like this? My favorite song is the still played, but underrated mid tempo pop/rocker 'Never Be the Same' which is the perfect love (or post-love) song. The lyrics are a little sad, but the song sounds happy. Also, the minor hit 'Say You'll Be Mine' is more of an 80s sounding generic pop tune, but by no means is it bad.
The pleasant, slightly uptempo 'The Light is On' is worth getting this for, it's just as good as the hits. The closer 'Minstrel Gigolo' about rock stars in general, is a nice slow pop song, even though it runs a little long. 'Poor Shirley' is a somewhat dramatic, yet really nice mid tempo song that also could've been released. However 'I Really Don't Know Anymore' is a bit too 70s soft rock sounding for my tastes, and a little whiny. It does have a good guitar solo, however. 'Spinning' is a generic, slow ballad that just never gets going and doesn't have much of a hook.
His next album "Another Page" has a couple great songs, and a few okay ones.

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!
