True Musicianship

Before MTV came along with the prerequisite of an artist needing to be physically attractive and/or having visual gimmicks to sell records, we had a music industry where true musical talent took a front seat to being photogenic, looking good in tight fitting outfits and being perfectly coiffed. This album's content crossed over 3 genres: Pop, Rock, and Adult Contemporary. It had a little something for every radio station that played these formats. Partly because of the overexposure of this album, negative music critics, and the Video Age, Cross's career faltered and he was never again quite able to live up to the high expectations that this album achieved. He had more successes but each follow up seemed to be less successful than the release that proceeded it. As for me, this album provided a welcome respite from listening to the dying Disco Era music on the radio and the up and coming New Wave sound dominated by too many cheesey synthesizers and hypnotic, soulless, drum sounds contained in much of the music of the Eighties. I still love this album today and how all the tracks flow so beautifully throughout. This is, indeed, true musicianship at its best.

One of the best

This album by chris is one of the best albums of the late 70's or early 80's. It sparks up a sleu of memories.

No hatin' here, but Christopher Cross recorded Sailing loooong before N'Sync did. Sailing was recorded in 1979,so JC,Chris and Joey were only kids, Lance was just born that year, and Justin wouldn't have existed for another two years. So no Cross did not steal that from N'Sync, N'Sync just redid it. Sailing is a CLASSIC.

Christopher Cross was far and away the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the chart-topping "Sailing"; seemingly as quickly as he shot to fame, however, his star descended, although he continued recording and touring for years to come. Born Christopher Geppert in San Antonio, TX on May 3, 1951, Cross first surfaced in the Austin-based cover band Flash before signing a solo contract with Warner Bros. in the...
