In Europe, Midge Ure needed the help of a Swatch-commercial to make his song "Breathe" popular and get the well-deserved attention of his fourth solo album, a few years after its original release. With "Breathe", he finally had a hit again that was missing on his former album "Pure" and that brought him back into the charts.

From his solo albums, Breathe is my absolute favorite. Sure, it does not contain any pop hymns like in his Ultravox time, and some might consider it too mellow. However, I think that wonderful lyrics about love and emotion, his clear and brilliant voice, and a beautiful and touching music with a strong Celtic influence, using mandolins, Celtic harp, and accordion, make this album to a highlight in his solo career.

Even though only the song "Breathe" became a hit in Europe, the album has many great songs like Fields of Fire, Fallen Angel, and Trail of Tears. My favorite is the duet "Guns and Arrows" with Sally Dworsky, a song about opening yourself to your partner and tell about your worries.

Everyone who likes Midge's other albums will love this one, and if you have not heard him before you might fall in love with his music after listening to "Breathe". If you enjoyed this album, you will also like "A Glorious Noise", a live album recorded in 2001 during his Breathe concert tour.

I purchased this CD in 1997, and still play it as much today as I did then. Breathe, the title track is a softly inspirational melody with beautiful keyboards. Fields of fire produces stunning Celtic/European instumentals and passionate tranquility...This CD is not for those looking for flash and prepackaged top 40. It is a beautiful, inspirational and classically composed sonata, that harmonizes stillness, quiet and beauty, with love, passion and hope. The exotic instruments are a welcome respite from the same 3 chords heard in all types of popular music. The thoughtful lyrics leave one feeling like an intelligent being, rather than just another fan, buying the same old sex, drug and rock and roll drivel. This CD will satisy the classical lover, as well as those who still appreciate REAL music, culture and talent! A TIMELESS CLASSIC!

It is rare for me to find an album as good as Breathe that makes me want to listen to it over and over again on the same day I had bought it. I remember having heard the title track from a Swatch commercial a few years back and liking it so I picked it up. Every song on the album is good, there are no clunkers like on a lot of albums I buy nowadays. Fields of Fire and Fallen Angel particularly took my breath away when I first listened to the songs. I can't get enough of this beautiful pop album.

I first heard Midge Ure on the 1986 Prince's Trust concert album. He delivered one of the best performances of the show, and I looked at the credits for the album and thought, who is this Midge Ure guy?
I then purchased "Answers to Nothing" and an Ultravox best-of compilation, and found them to be competent but a little too poppy for my taste, without a lot of hook. Where was the strong, deep voice I'd heard on the Prince's Trust album?
Well, it's back with "Breathe". Midge Ure left the musicianship to some independent experts and decided to just handle the singing bit, and it shows. Many songs on the album (including the Swatch-commercial anthem "Breathe") are very solid work, with good hooks.
Ure's only real fault is that he seems convinced that every single song must be deep, serious and thoughtful. That gets tiresome after a while.

I first heard this CD in the 90's and the beautiful songs have stuck with me ever since. Breathe is absolutely haunting! I am so upset that I can't get ANY of the songs on spotify or any other station, but it prompted me to buy the out of print CD. I can hardly wait to get it! I have to say that it's one of my favorite albums and you won't be wasting your money buying it.
