Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Those who remember the keyboard-based soft-rock of Sailing and Ride Like the Wind will be surprised to learn that Cross writes on guitar. It's guitar that drives this surprising new record, an energized outpouring of personal reflection and societal comment: Hey Kid; Rescue; Everything; Dreamers; Prayin' , and more!

From the Artist

"This album feels not only like a new chapter to my career; it feels like starting a whole new book." - Christopher Cross

Christopher Cross's career arc reminds me a bit of Peter Frampton's as they both had iconic, multi-million selling albums containing hit songs that still get regular radio airplay to this day. In the years following those explosive albums, both artists' cooled off from the white hot glare of the spotlight within the changing musical landscape. Christopher & Peter have both continued to tour and release new music over the years while staying dedicated to their artistry & craft. And after all this time, Frampton even won his first Grammy for an instrumental album he put out in 2006.
Christopher Cross has also stayed busy since the Grammy filled heyday of "Sailing" & "Ride Like The Wind" releasing 7 additional albums along with a greatest hits collection, a Christmas album and 2008's exquisite "Café Carlyle Sessions" featuring tasteful, scaled down jazz arrangements of his work throughout the years. That brings us to his newest full album of original material in 12 years titled DOCTOR FAITH. The immediate observation is that Christopher isn't trying to come off like he's still 29. There's a wisdom and social consciousness within tracks like "Hey Kid"(featuring Eric Johnson on lead guitar) and "I'm Too Old For This" that shines a sorely needed light on how our culture accepts the previously unacceptable. While this subject matter isn't usually what's expected on a Christopher Cross album, he and co-writer Rob Meurer execute this slippery slope with a fearless grace and truth. The track "When You Come Home" returns listeners to more familiar, romantic waters with the gorgeous strings and plaintive melody of a man looking for redemption and a second chance in his relationship. "November" is a delicate, bittersweet ballad about a couple coming to an end.

I have been a Christopher Cross fan since I heard "Never Be The Same" off his debut album over 30 years ago. Enthusiastically, I have kept up with his career, looking forward to each release with great anticipation, knowing that I would not be disappointed. The years have gone by and, release after release, I (and all those lucky enough to have all of his music) have been treated to brilliant singing, song writing, and flawless production. And to my expected delight, DOCTOR FAITH claims its rightful place amongst the wonderful catalogue of Cross classics. 13 years since his last album of new material and WOW was it worth the wait!!!
"November" is a lovely ballad reminding me of the emotions I felt the first time I heard his classic, "Swept Away", off of 1988's BACK OF MY MIND disc. And Cross' voice has not lost a beat...it is as smooth and as beautiful as ever!
Cross and his long time writing collaborator, Rob Meurer, deliver a great variety here, ranging from the before-mentioned "November" to the upbeat and catchy "Leave It To Me", which would be perfect on a sunny trip to the beach. Crisp, clear vocals, pristine musicianship, and mature, thought-provoking lyrics make this cd a treasure for the ears. I am confident you will be hooked...I know I am!

After seemingly 13 longs years, Christopher Cross has a new CD that equals, or surpasses all of his previous work. If you love Christopher Cross like I do, you will listen to this until you know every word by heart. If you liked his 'Sailing', you will also love this album, because he still writes beautiful lyrics, and the music is so much better than it ever has been. If you haven't really listened to a lot of Christopher Cross music, now is the time to do so....It's so worth the money, and even MORE worth the wait.

Christopher Cross has been out of the spotlight for a while. He has continued performing and writing but just staying in the background, quietly making music.
He's returned with a new CD Doctor Faith, with his signature sound from when he began with Christopher Cross (1979). That first album won five Grammies, including Best Album, Best Song "Sailing" and Best New Artist.
Christopher actually got his start in 1970 when Richie Blackmore with Deep Purple fell ill. Christopher sat in and the crowd was amazed.
Over the years he's also jammed with Alan Parsons, Mark Farner (Grand Funk), Jack Bruce (Cream), Eric Carmen, Todd Rundgren and Michael McDonald.
In fact, Michael adds his vocals to one of the new cuts "Doctor Faith" and master guitarist, Eric Johnson, adds cool licks to "Hey Kid."
Jimmy Buffet may have cornered the beach bum vibe, but Christopher Cross has the refined island, ocean and romatic beach walk sound nailed. Chris will be playing with the Nashville Symphony On Oct. 20, 21 and 22.

The latest from CC is amazing and thought-provoking. Although you can tell he has lost some prcey arrangements in recent years and you can't help but appreciate how he has suffered for his integritized art, he still manages to shine here. He is contemplative without navel-gazing and hopeful without resorting to cliches or axioms that either date him or cause sighs of overuse or of being too-youthful. The last cut is more a benediction then a song but he has always sailed with peace in his heart. The albums unity and cohesion is one his best and reminds me of the negelected "Another Page" with songs that hit his marrow bone in honest self-revelation. Not for the Justin Bieber crowd but worth a look for anyone who has missed him or seen him in an intimate small-stage concert ever. It should also hold-up in time as an appeal to sanity politically when presently there is none.
