"The Road To Freedom" marks De Burgh's 30th year in the music business, and it is a welcome return to form. "Freedom", his 14th studio album finds him tapping into what he does best, tell dramatic tales of love and loss, war and courage, the tensions between family members. This album is more in the vein of "The Getaway" and "Into The Light". The songs hold together very well, with little filler at all. This release stands above his last four uneven albums--2002's "Timing Is Everything", 1999's "Quiet Revolution", 1994's "This Way Up" and 1992's "Power Of Ten". It begins with an almost Les Miserables/Phantom of the Opera feel with the dramatic and somber opener "When Winter Comes" which melds into "The Road To Freedom" and then to "Snow Is Falling". The opening trio is reminiscent of his earlier trilogies found on "Into The Light", "The Getaway" and "Crusader". His first single, "The Words 'I Love You'" is a great lead-off with it's uptempo beat and lyrics examining the relationship between a father/son and religion/faith. "Five Past Dreams" contains a musical nod to the classic "Lady In Red" from 1986's "Into The Light" and "The Journey" references "Don't Pay The Ferryman" from 1982's "The Getaway". De Burgh also uses Latin influences on "What You Mean To Me" and the excellent "Read My Name". Also evident is his appreciation of other adult contemporary singers like Vanessa Williams because the verses on "Here For You" sound exactly in the time signature and tone of her 1992 hit "Save The Best For Last".Read more ›

What can I say?? It's been too long since Mr De Burgh's last release - his "Best Of" Albums have not been enough to keep us satisfied. So along comes "Road To Freedom"... the first few bars of the tell-tale guitar tells you we are on the road for a welcome return for the master storyteller, packed with fantastic new music, guaranteed to get your feet tapping and a smile on your face, whilst leaving you strangely melancholy. Although not quite as emotion-packed as his earlier releases such as "Crusader", and with a distinctly more upbeat feel, it still reaches your soul as no other artist can.
Grab this album, you will not be disappointed. But spend the time listening to it; it will truly immerse you.

After hearing "When Winter Comes" at dance lesson, had to have this album. When Winter Comes is a wonderful waltz. Purchased this album for this one song, but after listening to the others, this is a wonderful album.

This CD is great but you should buy the DVD! There are songs included in the DVD version but not included in this CD, and believe me, they are so good that you definitely don't want to miss them at all cost! I don't quite understand why these two songs were not selected in this CD, as I found they are the best two in the DVD version!

1. The Same Sun - so beautiful a song!
2. Borderline - so touching! The original studio version can't compare with this live version! After so many years of performing career, Chris' voice has become so beautiful when he sung this song, especially in his falsetto and the transition! I am a guy but still this song almost made me cry everytime I listen to it!

So if you have this CD, please also buy the DVD!

This is one of Chris's BEST CDs. He must have made this CD after the loss of someone. If you listen carefully to the words of each song, the common theme seems to indicate this. I have MANY of his CD's but this one touched me the most with his heartfelt renditions.
