5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive L&M-Don't judge a book by its cover October 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply the best thing L&M ever put down on vinyl. There are good things before and good things after, but Full Sail represents the height of their creativity. It is also a continum of L&M music, starting with commercially cute "Lahaina," to the progressive "Pathway to Glory," to the rock and roll/Calypso meld of "You Need a Man/Coming To You." "Watching the River Run" is a poetic masterpiece which deserves more credit than its Top 40 appearance on commercial radio. The album ends in Beatlesque style with Sailin' the Wind's mild cacophony of seas sounds. A true masterpiece not to be missed

4.0 out of 5 stars A Transitional Album November 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Full Sail", the third album by Loggins and Messina, is my second favorite by this talented duo, behind only their fourth album, "Mother Lode". On the first two albums they played primarily light pop music, with enticing bits of country and calypso thrown in to the mix to keep it interesting. On "Full Sail" they begin to stretch out with lengthier instrumental passages that have hints of country-jazz fusion. They would carry this to it's furthest extreme on the next album, "Mother Lode", before retreating back to a more pop sound on their final albums. "Full Sail" features probably the best song of their career, "Watching The River Run", as well as other noteworthy songs such as "You Need A Man/Coming To You" and "Didn't I Know You When". Unfortunately their artistic growth and adventurousness seemed to lead to a decline in their commercial fortunes, so they did not continue to pursue the interesting directions their music had been heading past the fourth album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has Stood Up Over Time July 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When L&M were recording, this album never quite captured me like Sittin' In, which I found to by lyrical, innocent, and romantic. This one is more worldly, expansive, and takes risks. 25+ years later, it holds up well. The reggae, the jazz elements, the nautical themes -- this is fine stuff. If you are new to L&M, I still recommend starting with Sittin' In. But don't neglect this gem, either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album September 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album was way ahead of it's time which is why I think it didn't see great commercial success...people just didn't get it. The musicianship is some of the best ever layed down. For starters, the woodwind players on this album are one of the main reasons I pursued a career in music as a woodwind player. Jon Clarke has been one of my idols for a long time. On this album he plays everything from Oboe to Bass Sax. He's truly amazing and this album really shows his talents. Kenny Loggins has been one of my vocal idols ever since this album. His voice continues to amaze me and has only gotten better over the years. The mastering of this album is also amazing. The clarity and balance is wonderful. You can hear every vocal line, every guitar riff, every woodwind line. I still listen to this album almost every day and never tire of it, it is THAT good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Sail- What an Album (CD) July 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Full Sail is one of best albums ever recorded. Had it in the Mustang on 8-track. Had it on vinyl and CD, too. Every song on it is excellent. "Love Song" and "Watching the River Run" are timeless classics. Please pass this one on to future generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars a delightful album September 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
what a delightful album. like the cover, the album reflects a holiday .. carribean perhaps. but the album really starts to cook with the longer tracks. there's a perfect synthesis of loggins pop craft and messina's rock leanings. essential material when marooned on an island.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sailin' the Wind May 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Anyone familiar with the Yacht Rock internet series will know the cover image. The tracks include
1. Lahaina- a Jim Messina composed track with Jim on lead vocals, and tells of a hilarious tale of a guy meeting a centipede on a Hawaiian island.
2. Travelin' Blues- another Jim Messina led-vocal track
4.Love Songenny Loggins sings lead here on this track which he claims to have written for a waitress and later gave to Anne Murray for her hit single from her album Love Song her second Loggins-penned hit (the other was Danny's Song the previous year). It also included a cover of "Watching the River Run" as well.

Seems Sony/Columbia doesn't own the copyrights to this album. Not sure what it means, stating Jim Messina was the "Recordist". Recorded at Wally Heiders, Studio 4, Hollywood. Read more
