5.0 out of 5 stars simply, the very best at his best, 22 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Breathe (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!
