Title - 'Lost In Love: The Best Of Air Supply' (Legacy)
Artist - Air Supply
About 5 years ago I went to an Air Supply concert. It was really good I have to say, and I even got to go up and meet one of the performers during the concert. So after the concert I went out to buy one of their many (many!) greatest hits CDs and grew very attached to the music, very quickly and very easily.
The CD starts out with "Empty Pages", which is a good beginning to this 16 track CD. As I've grown to appreciate, guitarist and chief songwriter Graham Russell and lead vocalist Russell Hitchcock were/are the sonc architects behind this wonderful band and their dynamic soft rock sound. Specializing in cafting moving paeans of romantic love that equaled chart gold, Air Supply were one of the '80s most commercially successful bands.
They racked up many, many smash hits, all of which are seemingly contained on this CD - "Lost In Love," "The One That You Love," "Even The Nights are Better," and the huge chart hit "Making Love Out Of Nothng At All" - but it's the way they created their lyrics (based as they were in pure reality that everyone could/can relate to) that makes them still so musically masterful today.
Another song on this album that is remarkable is the ever so popular "Unchained Melody". Air Supply did a very good rendition of this song. One of their big hits, Lost in Love is also really good.
This entire new collection is one great musical momento/tribute to Air Supply and deserves to be in your collections, one and all. All in all I really enjoyed listening to this album for the past few weeks that the advance has been in my possession - due to the kmindness of my director at Exclusve Magazine - and I will continue to listen to it on repeat whether I'm in the house or the car! This is a great album to pick up so please do. The songs included are: 1. Empty Pages, 2. Love and Other Bruises, 3. Lost in Love, 4. All out of Love, 5. Every Woman in the World, 6. Chances , 7.
