Chris De Burgh: Still romantic after all these years...
on 30 October 2002
Chris De Burgh is possibly the last true romantic still recording songs for those of us with a similar emotional outlook.
For most people unfamiliar with Chris's work, 'Lady In Red' remains his best known opus, but that excellent track is merely the cherry on the top of a rather gorgeous cake.
This well thought out compilation includes such gems as my own personal favourite, 'So Beautiful', a song that both my previous wives loved: it became "our tune".
Other tracks include 'Much More Than This' (not to be confused with Bryan Ferry's 'More Than This'), 'Lonely Sky', 'Fatal Hesitation' and the almost elegaic 'Lonely Sky', amongst others. This, in short, is a selection that spans the entire gamut of feelings that a person in love can experience. It's almost as if Chris could read his fan's mind (one of which I've been for almost 20 years)and was saying "yes, I know and understand EXACTLY what you're experiencing. Because I feel it TOO".
So, if you want to experience the best artist to emerge from Ireland since The Batchelors, you could do no better than to start here. I cannot recommend this album enough.
