5.0 out of 5 stars A CD dripping with Cetera's real life emotions... May 11, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Even though he only wrote 4 of the songs of the album, this album reflects on the struggles in Cetera's life at the time of the recording. He was in the midst of a divorce (to Diane Nini who co-wrote "Glory of Love" with him) and the idea of having to live away from his daughter, Claire. The songs written by Cetera are easily the best of the album- "Restless Heart", "Even a Fool Can See", "World Falling Down", and "Have You Ever Been in Love". These songs tug at your heart as you feel the pain Cetera is going through. The track "Even a Fool Can See" is such a good track. Not only are the lyrics poignant, but the title itself is ironic because he's really not over the loss of his family.
Definitely Peter Cetera at his best! I just wish he'd release albums more often than every 4 or 5 years. He truly is one of the great singers of our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Cetera--"World Falling Down" June 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
So it seems a few people are of the opinion that Cetera should release new work more than every 3, 4, or 5 years. I happen to disagree. Cetera is such a talent, and every release is absolutely exquisite. Each album is meticulous and near perfect. The lulls in between just make it all worth the wait. And then some. And then some. He gives you just enough time to miss his presence from the music scene (especially since he doesn't get near the airplay he deserves), and then he comes back and gives you a swift kick in the tail. His talent and track record have earned him the right to take his time and do it right.
I have always liked the 1992 Cetera release "World Falling Down" but until recently never knew it was put together during a time of emotional personal distress for Cetera. Knowing this quantified for me the raw power and emotion involved with this CD. It all made even more sense. Not a single stinker on this one. Standouts, if there are any, are "Have You Ever Been In Love", "Even a Fool Can See" and "Restless Heart".

4.0 out of 5 stars A World That Fell February 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
When I keep thinking about Peter Cetera, I always look back on his days with Chicago. After his departure from the group, his solo career has been a lackluster of a his former self.
His 1992 album, World Falling Down, is a beautiful collection of songs that still spark a scream into any Cetera fan. The songs blend here elegantly from Restless Heart, Cetera's final Top 40 song, to his dynamic duet with Chaka Khan, on the song Feels Like Heaven, and even a short reunion with Chicago member, Bill Champlin on Wild Ways.
Each song here still shows that same old soul that Cetera has been known for. Although many fans of Peter Cetera, still prefer his works with Chicago, this album still captures his once known signature sound. I truly enjoyed this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BY FAR November 22, 1998
Format:Audio CD
This CD is incredible. I don't mean good, I mean incredible. EVEN A FOOL CAN SEE is amazing. Every time I hear it, I can feel how he felt when he was singing it. If you buy only one CD this year, it should be WORLD FALLING DOWN. I can't think of a single song on it that is not incredible! If only there were more CD's of this caliber!

By Matt S.
Format:Audio CD
"World Falling Down" cuts right into the depths of human emotion, letting us know just what it means to be human. Peter wrote and recorded this album during an obvious time of personal strife, and all of the ten songs express the pain and despair that is part of human existence. Each song in itself portrays a different version of his pain and sadness, as each song is unique as they are creative. It was hard to choose an all-time favorite on this album, but I seem to have connected with "Where There's No Tomorrow" the most with "Have you Ever Been In Love" running a close second. Having experienced heartbreak and loss within my own personal life, the line "You go your way, I go mine" is probably, to me, the hardest thing to say when it comes to breaking up with someone. Nonetheless, I actually have repeated this line when it was time to part ways with someone, and it was all I needed to say. "Have you Ever Been in Love" has a very deep and reflective tone to it, as Peter tries to come to terms with picking up the pieces after a broken relationship. The line "Have there been times to laugh, and times you really wanted to cry" represent the duality and the irony of love. Love can be both joyful and painful, and one cannot exist without the other. Peter strikes a cord with that line, and it still makes me flush today as it did when I purchased it.

I have owned this CD since its release, and it continues to move me and instill within me that there is light at the end of the tunnel. In my own opinion, Peter seems to be some type of mourning period, but does not seem to be overly-depressed, and he retains the optimism that life (and love) indeed goes on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fourth album by Peter Cetera with more 'popular' touches November 12, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Yet another outstanding album by PC, World includes songs such as "Feels Like Heaven" and "Restless Heart", both of which were popular songs on the radio. The most complex is the title track, "World Falling Down", which has excellent bass and is very emotional. "Have You Ever Been In Love?" is a beautiful, yet powerful song, combining guitar with synthesizers and carefully gliding into each section, including the bridge. "Man In Me" features horns in its music, which reminds one of Chicago, but they are much less obvious and do not take away from the vocals at all. Only four of the ten songs on this album were written by the artist, which was odd, but it does very well indeed with its low-level intensity and excellent music. A somewhat diverse collection of music, this album will not disappoint you!
