4.0 out of 5 stars Black or White? 9 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Timeless Flight was a commercial failure but is still an excellent album. Harley probably never wrote better lyrics before or since. If Best Years of our lives was Harley's pension earner this album was the one that stood him up as a 'real artist' and first class lyricist. The politics are dodgy as many have pointed out but this has to be seen against the background of the rise of Thatcherisim and Harley's own left-wing Liberal views at the time. Red is a mean mean colour could equally be a critique of Blairisim never mind of the rising Militant left at the time. Highlight has to be 'nothing is sacred' this paved the way for Harley's acoustic shows in more recent years and is a high point of the album. Buy it, enjoy it, cos you'll love it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is Sacred? Nothing is better . . . 8 Nov 2003
Contoversial for it's politics, misunderstood by it's pop audience, and a commercial disappointment for it's creator, Steve Harley's 'Timeless Flight' album is one of music's best kept secrets. The great pity for Harley is that it will probably always be a 'lost' work - unknown and unloved by all except by the small group of dreamers and romantics that can't live without it.
Rightfully re-released (at last!) on CD in 2002, Timeless Flight goes on sounding better than ever. 'Nothing is Sacred', a song of absolute simplicity and astonishing power that relies on pure timing between lyric and guitar, is as close to raw musical perfection as I have heard from anyone - a work of genius by a master craftsman.
Switch off the world for a moment and listen: the romance of 'Understand' , the dreaminess of 'All Men are Hungry' and the power of 'Black or White' may not impact on you at first listening, but stay upon this timeless flight and they will . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Harley Ever..... 3 Oct 2003
This is the Rebel album that is the hardest to listen to at first, and yet once its under your skin...its not as "poppy" as the others (if Harley could ever be called that) - the songs are more layered in texture and meaning. I've had the album 25 years and its still fresh. Its hard to know what to recommend to the first time listener.....start with Nothing is Sacred and work up from there - or just start at no. 1 and go to the end....

5.0 out of 5 stars SUBLIME 19 Oct 2003
It was that long hot summer of 76, Flight came out towards the end of it.
This is possibly Steve at his best - innovation combined with great lyrics.
I saw him in concert in Liverpool that Autumn - wow. Now I have just seen him in Manchester this year and he really is one of the best performers I have seen.
Enjoy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Ready to Fly 24 Sep 2003

You can expect more from Steve Harley song. Its like a gymnasium for the mind. Wrapped in political thought, layered with the intrigues of passion, lust and sexual desire, fired by emotion and insight and the sliver of doubt that it could just be a song. This album is the most refined from Steve Harley yet retains the edgy-ness of the lyrics that hooked so many of the good looking, intelligent and witty people that followed his career .... and no doubt others.
All the tracks are clever and highly listenable, some stand out like the amazing (yet simple) "Understand" (that I blatently copied as a letter to an unrequited love once), the powerful "All Men Are Hungary" (that got me a "A' when blatently adapted for an english A-level essay) and the intriguing "Black or White" rumored to be banned for some reason (never copied or adapted). Its a great album to lie on the floor together, alone and drift away.... oh, and read the story in the notes (the Hill & Hibiscus Flowers), worth copying for your forthcoming english exam and if you work out what it is about, can you drop me a line. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind Blowing Brilliance 13 Feb 2004
By John G
Verified Purchase
There was an underlying political controversy about this album that I have never quite understood but pretended to do so when the album was released. Don't worry about the politics, the music is quite awesome. Somewhere along the line, Steve Harley found the talent to write amazing lyrics that stimulate thought and even inspired love letters and a higher english essay in my particular case. In this album the music is the equal of the words. It moves along beautifully. It suprises, never rests in creativity and is perfectly produced.
Its difficult to choose a highlight as it is a perfect album. I guess Understand, All Men Are Hungry, Black Or White, White White Dove, Red Is A Mean Mean Colour......its all good. You'll love it.
