5.0 out of 5 stars This puts me on Cloud 9 June 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
With the afterglow of my personal discovery of the Beatles in full swing, the release of what would turn out to be George Harrison's penultimate solo album, Cloud Nine, well, put me there. After getting greatest hits albums by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, this was perfect. George had a lot of quality help on this album, including former bandmate Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Gary Wright, Elton John, and on the producer's helm, Jeff Lynne.

Most of the material is laid back pop, with George's gentle and understated voice an additional balm. "That's What It Takes" is one such song, on how in order to enjoy the shining world, one has to take all those chances.

However, the great heartfelt ballads are what make Cloud Nine. The tearful piano ballad "Just For Today" is great for those who are very down and need "to get through this day only" and other things somehow: "If just for one night/I could feel not sad and lonely/Not be my own life's problem/Just for one night." It shows that it wasn't just Paul McCartney who could make a universal ballad like "Yesterday." Equally as sad and touching is "Someplace Else" of needing that certain someone during a time of crisis: "And for a while you could comfort me/And hold me for some time/I need you now to be beside me/While all my world is so untidy/Loneliness/Empty faces/Wish i could leave them all in someplace else." Clapton helps out on this song.

The quick "Fish On The Sand" features Jeff Lynne's signature production, that backbeat rhythm synths and guitar also to be present on the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle With Care" and Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down" and "Learning To Fly." A similar sound is present on the third single, "This Is Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cloud Nine (1987) February 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
CLOUD NINE

I walked through 1987 with a great sense of satisfaction around me. The Dark Horse that no one betted on, won the race. He was the first out of the gate (`My Sweet Lord' being the first No.1 hit by a solo Beatle), and he was also the one that finished first in the race (`Got My Mind Set On You' is the last solo Beatle song to reach No.1). Along the way, others overtook him, media jockeys tried to run him off the course, former producers and band-mates derided his work and importance, but he still finished, and won. And this kind of circular event plays throughout Harrison's entire career. The first song to be recorded by The Beatles was Harrison and McCartney's `In Spite of All The Danger'. In this case, no one is willing to say truly how much was Harrison, and how much was McCartney. But these were the days of The Beatles when Harrison was on equal footing with Lennon and McCartney, he was a member of the band, not a sidekick or employee. Or hindrance in some minds. If `In Spite...' was not enough, `Cry For A Shadow' by Harrison and Lennon is the next Beatles original composition to be recorded. There's a trend beginning. And at the end of their RECORDING career, the last song to ever be recorded while all four members were alive, was Harrison's (with help from McCartney) `I Me Mine'. Had Harrison not met Paul McCartney, and knowing how life has many twists and turns, you would never have had The Beatles to begin with. I am suggesting something here. Whether you pick up on it or not, isn't really what I can control. I'm just suggesting that `The Quiet One' was a lot louder in other ways than can be perceived on the surface.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why can't they keep the good stuff? October 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
First of all, it's a bloody travesty that this album is currently out of print. I know George was supposedly remastering his entire catalog at the time of his death, but that is no excuse for the record companies. They ignore the best of the past and just shovel mass produced garbage down our throats. This is a real artist, with real emotion...unlike todays f--- you so it pays music. All sides of George are presented here: wit, happiness, integrity,spirituality,sadness,recollections of the past, optimism for the future, all in his characteristic style. Beautiful piano, electric and acoustic guitars, nice resonant bass, simple drumming with George's slide work weaving in out out of the melodys...not one weak track here. I love this album because George, regardless of his fame and fortune, seems more human and closer than ever..From Cloud 9 to the upbeat end this is a constant album...besides All Things Must Pass, this is his best in my opinion. Don't worry if its from the 80s either..this is the 80s the way it should have been, with style..In the end the songs are what really matters anyway. Oh one more thing, this album will make you feel good! The majority of the songs are upbeat with a few exceptions but they are just as good anyway..so it's a very positive mature album that will brighten up your day..besides George's work with the Travelling Wilburys (check out Vol. 1) this is the best of 80s George.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is love March 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
After the sales failure that his 1982 album Gone Troppo was, George Harrison decided to retire 'to be a gardener'. When he came back five years later, he returned with a winner, and a big contender as the best album of his carrer: Cloud Nine (1987), co-produced by Jeff Lynne, features some of his best work, in lyrical terms, adorned by exquisite instrumental ornaments and great production skills.

This is an album in which George Harrison uses positively his Beatles/rock'n'roll background and takes advantage of the innovation on sounds and songwriting that he had been experiencing in the previous years. In lyrical terms, his words are honest as always, talking almost all the time in the first person, singing about that complete love that he defined as "both divine and human", and thus writing precious love songs that can also be thought of as prayers ("That's What It Takes", "This Is Love"), and vice-versa ("Fish On The Sand", "Just For Today"). In other tunes he uses the perfectly acid sense of humour to make criticisms about the modern society, or the lifestyles that he condemned ("Wreck Of The Hesperus", "Devil's Radio"). And in some other tracks he just wants to have fun ("Got My Mind Set On You") or to laugh at himself ("Wreck Of The Hesperus"). Sound-wise, this is a typically 80's album, with a big amount of synthesisers and synchronized drums (played live nonetheless, by Ringo Starr and Jim Keltner). The key is that the instruments are perfectly distributed into each track to make them sound tight and solid. Here, the synthesisers are used as an extra ingredient and not as the main part of the songs, and each track is carefully thought as a radio-friendly track.

This is George's masterpiece with Jeff Lynn along for the ride (actually driving the bus is more accurate). Closest thing to All Things Must Pass though a lot more commercial.
