4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive range of contrasts 13 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Perhaps not as consistent as "Midnight Wire" but it has a great range of styles and a few fantastic numbers like "Moonshine", "Juno" and "Broken Lady". The contrasts of previous albums are here, in atmospherics and nuances etc. Some of it is lighter and more bluesy which was their stated intent according to the booklet, and is done with the usual panache and class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curved Air 20 Oct 2013
By Ian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this on Cassette ( ask parents / grand parents. ) for years , saw it on Amazon , and was transported back to the 70's . Does anyone remember the dingy VIrgin Records in Brum , Anyway worth buying for Moonshine , Sonjas voice in the opening lines still gives me goosebumps , anyway it's hard to review an album , I like it , others won't , it comes with a bonus track , which I don't like

4.0 out of 5 stars a great one for the collection 20 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not Curved Airs best but certainly an enjoyable album to listen to. Sits nicely along with the others. No stand out classics but shouldn't be dismissed. Sonja still has a great voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once a fan, always a fan 9 Feb 2000
By loteq - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Being slightly disappointed by "Lovechild" and "Second album", I wondered if I should buy another Curved Air record. Finally, I decided to get this one. Well, I have to say that this is a very good album, equally fine as their debut "Air conditioning". "Airborne" continues with the jazz-rock of "Midnight wire", but on a more melodic and less pretentious note. The playing of the band (once again featuring drummer Stewart Copeland who also co-wrote some songs) is tighter and more engaged. Without getting trite, the music flows like a well-oiled machine. The delicate pop song "Desiree" leaves you wallking on air for the rest of the day. Other standout tracks are "Kids to blame", "Hot and bothered", and "Baby please..", but everything here is good, even the 11-minute megawork "Moonshine". Unfortunately, this album failed to chart and Curved Air soon disbanded after its release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last But Definitely Not Least 31 Aug 2010
By D. Mulhollen - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Airborne was Curved Air's last studio Album, and shows them moving in a more radio-friendly direction. This is terribly ironic as it got precious little airplay in the US (a few more progressive rock stations where they already had fans the extent of it) and may have alienated some long-time fans. However song-for-song it stacks up very well against not only their previous work, but much of the music produced in 1976.

The album is consistently strong, starting off with "Deseree" an upbeat song about romantic impermanence. Sonja's voice is multi-tracked here (as it is throughout) to very good effect. "A Touch of Tequila" is a perfect summer song with evokes a sunny Caribbean afternoon. The eleven-minute "Moonshine" is the album's centerpiece, which has some very delicate moments, some nicely jazzy ones, and truly rocks at other times. And the original vinyl LP's closer "Dazed" is a melancholy look at life on the road.

The playing is top rate, and Sonja's voice has never been better--one complaint I had with the early Curved Air albums was how unnecessarily restrained her voice was. On Airborne she shines, her warm alto voice showing its full emotional depth. And finally there's the drummer, this Stewart Copeland fellow. Airborne displays all the greatness he was to win accolades for with his next band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Swerves fair 15 Aug 2010

Format:Audio CD
Poorest starting point chronicling the seventies prog-pop band in final decline, but still captures enough magic to please a modest meshing of Rush & Heart fans.
