5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Musical Investment 30 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
Thinking about it, probably this album, and Shamrock Diaries marked the signpost on Rea's musical road before his music took on a slightly darker shade.

Here we have a classic Rea pop offering, but, as previous reviews have stated, some really great pop gems on there that still sound good today.

One man's meat is another poison, and I noted with interest one reviewer here state that the track Bombollini was disappointing. For me, it's the best track! The production on this track is incredible, with some seriously rocked up drumming and great 'open' live feel to the track. A feel which we won't feel again until Rea himself takes over the producers role on Dancing with Strangers.

As previously noted by others, Ace of Hearts is a beautiful track, starting soft and building steadily, great melody, great lyrics (as always).

For me, the title track, Wired To The Moon also deserves a special mention. A lovely track, think of it as a pop lullaby to sing to a small child:

"Sleep tonight little girl,
Sleep right on through, no one can wake you now.
You're falling through your dreams, sliding down every beam, and you don't know how.
Don't know how to hurt, don't know how to lie,
You just don't know how to do it, you couldn't if you tried,
'Cause you're wired to the moon."

Just beautiful lyrics, set to a goregeous, simple melody, with a lovely clean guitar solo, perfectly crafted, flawlessly executed.

I've owned this album since 1984, first on Vinyl, then on CD, and, like On The Beach, it never fails to please me, never fails to raise a smile on my face. My verdict? Buy it! Thanks for reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chris Rea Wired to the Moon 30 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Chris Rea album that I bought (on music Cassette can you believe!) so It'll always hold a special place for me. That said, it is fairly well documented that Chris was becoming disillusioned with the direction in which his career was heading at this time and was preparing for the leap into rock on the eastwest label.
So there is a fair bit of "old" Radio 2 fodder on ths album - but there are some cracking tracks here nonetheless. The title track and "Ace of hearts" are both excellent, as is "I don't know what it is but I love it." Tucked away on this album is a song that is just crying out to be a hit for someone "Touche d'amour" - one of those pearls that lie around waiting to be discovered.
Let's be honest - there are a couple of fillers in here too. "Winning" might be a decent song when it is finished and "Shine, Shine, Shine" is a demo that escaped while no-one was looking.
Overall, however, anyone with an interest in Chris Rea should own this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back! 19 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Chris Rear's gravelly voice and had this as an LP album years ago. I'm still old-fashioned enough to want CDs as I don't have an i-Pod or any of these i-thingies to download onto. I leave all that to our grandchilden who seem to walk around with their ears permanently plugged in, meaning they don't hear us when we ask them to do something!! (Then they complain that WE'RE deaf!!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Still looking for the summer 23 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
Chris Rea probably thought this stardom lark was easy when he had a hit from his first album. It took him, however, another eight years to discover that his best bet was tried and tested Stratocaster blues which is when I, and many others turned on to him. In the meantime, he turned out albums like this, mellow, highly professional, but just a little too bland to make an impact. 'Wired To The Moon' is gentle singer songwriter fare, unexciting love-on-a-summer's-day stuff, featuring mellow keyboards and mellow tunes; the Strat makes the odd appearance. 'Bombollini' opens the album with a long, promising intro, 'Winning' closes it with the only track with an edge. In between, 'Touche D'Amour' is like UB40 in one of their happy moments and 'I Don't Know What It Is But I Love It' makes an unchallenged claim to be the single (it reached number 65). This is a pleasant album, but like everything prior to 'Dancing With Strangers' is best left until you've tasted the later material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris Rea - Wired to the Moon 8 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of my favourites along with On the Beach and King of the Beach, but Chris Rea doesn't seem to have a 'weak' album as he can play such a variety of music genres. Perhaps because I am of a certain age it appeals although I first started to listen to this on cassette in my early/mid twenties. If you like any of Chris Rea's music then get this one.

You won't find 'shine, shine, shine', 'reasons' 'holding out' on his best of albums more is the pity. Great record

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD takes me back in time to some wonderful memories of my younger days. It takes me back to a relationship I once had and no more........... But an uplifting CD with the music of Chris Rea being at its best and magical.
