The absolute unthinkable, I was actually disappointed with this album. It had to happen eventually I guess, I have such incredible expectations for his albums. As is, there are still seven great songs here. (For most artists, they're doing well if they have three or four.) This is his first album where the word "except" appeared after "all songs written by Chris De Burgh". However, it was only a couple people co-writing the music, the lyrics are still all CdeB. (So what mood was he in when he wrote "Blonde Hair, Blue Jeans"?)
"Oh My Brave Hearts" (I somehow adopted this as the theme song to Mel Gibson's "Braveheart") and "Up Here In Heaven" are easily the best songs on the album, with "The Snows Of New York" close behind.
