Just listen to the guitar solo on "Just Like A Prisoner" and all the rest doesn't matter! Even then, it's not a bad album by any means! It's Eric!

Format: Audio CD
Behind The Sun was something of a controversial release; some fans felt it sounded too contemporary and original producer Phil Collins was very miffed at Warner Bros.' decision to replace three songs. Producers Ted Templeman and Larry Waronker were drafted in to secure a hit single and although a questionable move from an artistic point of view (Collins' comment that Behind The Sun wasn't the album Eric had made was understandable) commercially, at least, it worked.

With Jamie Oldaker once again behind the drum kit, partnered by Donald "Duck" Dunn on bass, the album has a great feel. The opening tracks - "She's Waiting", with its sparse guitar chords and extended instrumental ending, followed by "See What Love Can Do" (the first Jerry Lynn Williams composition) suggested it would be something different. But the track which followed shows where Eric has his roots: "Same Old Blues" is eight minutes of angst, performed mostly live, and his performance has to be heard to be believed. Unusually, although the blues is never far away, the album doesn't have a traditional blues cover and "Knock On Wood" (the soul classic) is as close as it gets. This track certainly lightens the mood after Eric's own blues and Eddie Floyd cited it as his favourite version, so it must be good. Jerry Lynn Williams' celebratory "Something's Happening" closed the original lp side 1 and his "Forever Man", which opened side 2, would become the hit single the record company had wanted.

Behind the sun is album recorded in very delicate period for Clapton, period of his fight against habits. On the album he is recording with his good friends/collaborators Phil Collins,Nathan East,Jerry Lynn Williams so the result can not be bad, even i will say outstanding. The songs like "Forever Man", "Something's happening" or "Just like a prisoner" are showing Clapton in full strength with pretty harmonic and fine tunes. Despite some notifications that album is maybe produced little bit more in a mainstream manner ,i think,for sure, this is one of the best of Clapton with no filler songs.

Eleven tracks of which six were written or co-written by Eric Clapton with production by Phil Collins who also is involved with drums, various percussion, and background vocals. 'See What Love Can Do' opens with a lovely intro of drums, bass, and synthesizer. This is a relaxed pop/rock song which finds Clapton in good voice, there's also some fine guitar playing. A nice song with a good overall sound. 'Same Old Blues' is a Clapton written and composed song which is superbly handled by him both vocally and instrumentally. This track confirms Clapton's blues roots and is an excellent offering of over eight minutes long which never becomes tiresome. Clapton gives a straight treatment of the Floyd/Cropper soul classic 'Knock On Wood' ie he sticks closely to the original - and it's good, I like everything about it. 'Forever Man' was one of the tracks which was taken from this album and released as a single. 'How many times must I explain myself before I talk to the boss?' asks Eric with real conviction; and listen to the guitar work which is superb - a great song! 'Just Like A Prisoner' is a dramatic number with loads of atmosphere and confirms Eric Clapton's fine songwriting ability as well as a great singer, and of course a great guitarist - excellent! This might not be Eric Clapton's finest album, but for me personally it is a good album which shows EC's strengths in songwriting, singing, and guitar work. This is still a welcome cd in my collection and if I could I would give it three and a half stars!

Whilst it is fair to say that this is not one of Clapton's more purist efforts, it does contains flashes of brilliance, and the guitar work on Same Old Blues and Just Like A Prisoner alone are worth the cost of the album. On Just Like A Prisoner he lets rip with a string of searing solos, the like of which you may have forgotten were within his reach. A truly sensational piece of work.

Tom McGuinness once likened Eric Clapton to sex: "When it's good, it's very, very good. When it's bad, it's still alright." If my sex life ever gets as dull as 'Behind the Sun', I'm joining a monastery.
In 1973, Eric's music biz mates had gathered round to rescue him from the pit of heroin addiction. A dozen years on and his record company, realising Eric had delivered a stinker, sent Phil Collins to rescue him and this record from the pit of mundane middle-aged mediocrity.
Collins - the only one of the old farts generation with any commercial standing at the time - fulfilled his brief, to a degree, by adding some heavier drums and production gloss. But none of that can hide the tiredness of the material and the performance.
Amid the torpid sludge there are a few lighter moments. Forever Man is a decent, if typical mid-period Clapton pop song, while the old favourite 'Same Old Blues' gets a loving if uninspired workout.
At the other end of the scale, on 'She's Waiting' Eric sounds like an old lady burdened with several bags of shopping - struggling to carry not very much. And the flat, pointless cover of 'Knock On Wood' is nothing less than an admission of defeat.
Eric, who turned 40 the year this was released, must have approached this record the way many 40-somethings approach their jobs - not because they love it, but because it's their living, and they're too young to retire but too old to learn another trade.
