Christopher Cross Sailing
Recorded in 1979, the eponymous debut album by Christopher Cross marked the absolute pinnacle of American AOR (adult oriented rock).
With sugar sweet melodies, interplay between top musicians and vocalists and a set of songs almost all strong enough to be singles, you have a veritable classic on your hands.
And a classic it is, there is simply no dud tracks here, just a seamless cruise through 9 fantastic tracks which pull gently at the heartstrings with gentle brush strokes of emotion.
In a world where chill out seems to have become synonymous with bland background music, I would strongly suggest that anyone looking for a wonderful soundtrack to a romantic evening, buys a copy of this album, pours a couple of glasses of wine and let’s Christopher Cross do the rest. You’ll melt, I guarantee it.
