4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A. C. Peckham on 22 Jan. 2004
Format: Audio CD
Breathe is the quintesential Ure album. In fact, its more than that, its the pinacle of a writing talent, that casually slips from soulful dreaming to deep anxiety, and from romantic pourings to religious questioning. When I first heard 'Breathe', the title track, I honestly thought Midge had covered a Roy Orbison song. And that's meant as a huge compliment. It's a fantastic opening number that is so smoothe its like licking your favourite chocolate selection, only to find that your next choice is even better. Other great tracks include Fallen Angel, Live Forever and May Your Good Lord (which has a great drum backing). The whole album shows just how good Midge is at both lyrics and score composition. Its also a showcase for his vocal talents. Breathe takes you miles from the bouncy 'cold, cold heart' tunes to a very mature and hugely absorbing sound. It feels as though Midge spent along time searching for this album, then woke up one morning to find that he couldn't get it down on paper fast enough - with most albums there is always the 3 or 4 tracks you'll play and the rest fill the disc, but with this, I challenge you not to play the whole thing and then want to play the whole lot again, straight away. The only sad thing about it, is that Midge never had the success with the album here as he did across Europe. But then, its beauty can be our little secret!

Format: Audio CD
There was a long break between 'Pure' in 91 & the first release of Breathe in 96 (helped no end by the title track being used in a swatch advert 2 years later). Out go the electric guitars & heavy synths we all associate with Mr Ure (along with sideburns & dreadful moustache!) to be replaced by an array of celtic instruments & accoustic guitars. This mix along with Midge's voice & own special brand of melodies creates simply one of the best albums i have ever heard.
After a couple of listens you'll be hooked songs like 'Breathe' & 'Guns & Arrows' & Live Forever' evoke such emotion & depth they just HAVE to listened too, i mean REALLY listened too. Even 'Sinner man' (not one of my favourite tracks) is so damn catchy i still find myself singing it now some days!
I really felt Midge found his new self with this album, i was disappointed to find when he eventually followed up Breathe with his next album 'Move me' he returned to the electric guitars & synths & despite some good songs it all sounded a bit stale.
End of the day who am i to question a legend in the music biz over the past 30 years? but i have no doubt Midge is as good a songwriter & story teller today, as he was in his commercial hey day, if not better, PLEASE Midge, next album should there be one, return to your celtic roots & give us another album like this. This album is a cracker & who ever i play it too generally agrees with me. I cannot recommend this album highly enough.

I'm a big Midge Ure fan and this album is certainly one of his best. Stand out tracks for me are : the title track, Guns & Arrows, Live Forever & Lay My Body Down.

Buy this and then get 'Move Me' (if you can as it is hard to find). I loved Breathe but Move Me just about topped it.

Great music - spread the word.
