Harrison's third solo album of the 1980s was surely his best since 1970s all things must pass. Produced by Jeff Lynne whose Band Elo John Lennon had said was closest to the Beatles musically in the 1970s. I can honestly say there is not a weak track on this album. There are countless high points. When we was Fab, This is love, devil's radio, Wreck of the Hesperus. Harrison had returned to his rock n roll roots. As a matter of interest the Gretsch guitar on the front of the album cover is from his Hamburg days he bought it from a Liverpool docker when he was seventeen, just before the Beatles went over to Germany. As usual a guest of stars helped out such as Elton John, the guitar god Eric Clapton and of cause good old Ringo. This album was a precursor to the well acclaimed and fun and rocky super group the Traveling Wilburys (lynne, Dylan, Orbison, Petty and Harrison). The album has a Beatle feel which is very positive. Got my mind set on you is probably the main track which most will recognize from this album. A Rudy Clark number from 1962 Harrison and Lynne rearranged it into a modern classic. This album was George's big musical comeback. This was his last solo album of original studio material released in his lifetime. Time has not weakened it. I am sure it will be back out soon to buy I highly recommend it to music and Beatles fans alike

I was chuffed when I saw that this album had been re-released (and remastered). Contrary to what another reviewer has said, the album does NOT appear to be copy protected so you CAN listen to it on your PC without any problems.
As a Jeff Lynne fan, listening to it now I can hear his influence on this album far more than on George's final album Brainwashed. The standout track is "When we was Fab" which, to my ears, is as much an ironic tribute to ELO as it is to The Beatles and absolutely wonderful. "Got My Mind Set on You" is an excellent rocky number, and the title track is typical Harrison weirdness. The rest is sometimes variable and, as is often the case with George Harrison, sometimes a little dark.
Overall, a superb blast from the 80s. If you like this, get hold of the Traveling Wilburys, Roy Orbison's "Mystery Girl" and Tom Petty's "Full Moon Fever" and "Into the Great Wide Open".

Sometime shortly before George's passing, I read of plans to reissue the Dark Horse/Warner Brothers CDs that had astonishingly fallen out of print in the early '90's. Of those, this is my favorite. "Cloud Nine" found George Harrison generally dispensing with his often (to me, anyway) off-putting religious tangents and making a sharp, energetic pop album. Production by Jeff Lynne is excellent, not over-the-top as some critics (not me) found later ELO albums. Musicians also include Eric Clapton, Elton John, Ringo Starr, Jim Keltner, and Ray Cooper.
For a while, in early 1988, I thought the pop world was making sense again, as "Got My Mind Set On You" matched the latest Whitney, Tiffany, and Rick Astley play for play on the radio (the hit stations, not just the Adult Contemporary ones)! "When We Was Fab" was a fine followup, with several '60's and Beatles references in the lyrics. Awesome video, too. In the U.S., at least, the record company dropped the ball by making the unexceptional "This Is Love" the third single instead of the edgier "Devil's Radio," but at this point it hardly matters. Anyone interested in Harrison but who finds his music too wispy and/or ethereal is strongly urged to purchase "Cloud Nine."
Hope this time, the booklet includes the lyrics. I hear there will be bonus tracks too. Fab!

I've just discovered this album for the first time. It's absolutely brilliant, really uplifting and all the songs are "fab," even the bonus songs from Shanghai Surprise made me want to see that film again!!!

I always had a soft spot for George from The Beatles days and his songs were always one's I would listen out for on the Beatles albums. I have the EMI 'Best of' album & later replaced it with the CD & only recently after the success of the re-mastered Traveling Willburys, has my interest in other works from George been re-ignited.
This is a perfect match for that fantastic collection that recently topped the charts in the UK.

This album is fantastic, it's hard to pick a favourite. You can dance to it, you can play it in the car. It's fun, wonderfuly produced and I can't recommend it enough... it's feel good music at it's best. Buy it. highly recommended!

Although it suffers from some pitfalls of typical late eighties production values (mainly the drums sound), this is one of the best George Harrison albums, in my opinion. Much better, for example, than 1979's "George Harrison".

If flows smoothly and lightly, with the usual soft Harrison vocals.

To me this album confirms that George Harrison was a musical genius. It's not that he wasn't a genius when he was a Beatle, it's just that he was the youngest member of the band & found himself in the shadow of two older geniuses in Lennon & McCartney. As a solo artist he flourished with some excellent Harrison penned Beatles tracks behind him.
On Cloud Nine I find 'Got My Mind Set On You' a bit too much of a 1980s pop single for my liking but the rest of the album is definitely not reminiscent of the decade in which it was made (no bad thing in my opinion). The sound is quite Wilsbury-esque in many ways & the posthumously released Brainwashed has many of the same qualities. It's hard to believe that nearly a decade & a half separate the two albums!
Cloud Nine is quite a significant departure from All Things Must Pass - recorded nearly two decades earlier - but anyone who loves that album should also get to know Cloud Nine &, now, Brainwashed. Why Cloud Nine was deleted sometime in the 1990s is a mystery to me. Hopefully this re-release will also prompt a solution to whatever legal issues are preventing the re-release of the Traveling Wilburys back catalogue which, again, demonstrates the true genius of George Harrison.
