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

Format: Audio CD
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.

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.

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!

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.

Christopher Cross is a very talented singer-songwriter whose compositions were mainly keyboard based in the past. With this new CD release, Christopher Cross switches to guitar based compositions (his 'typical' sound is still recognizable but has more of the 'rock feel' than pop. His vocals are varied but as sharp as ever). This new CD (13 tracks) release is titled 'Doctor Faith' : a great release (a good mixture of ballad, up-tempo pop/rock & rock tunes) that should delite his fans (his popularity has dwindled since his great emergence in 1980s). The opening track "Hey Kid" is a solid track/gem/stand-out : great choice for the opening track with a beautiful guitar/keyboard combination and wonderful melody. Other solid tracks/gems/stand-outs include "November" (a ballad with a beautiful orchestral base track, great piano, vocals & melody) & "Prayin'" (wonderful guitar chords, melody, incredible violin, vocals & inspirational lyrics wishing intervention from the man above. A beautiful ending of this great CD) . Great tracks include "When You Come Home" (great violin/guitar combination), "Dreamers" (orchestral base track with a great rock sound), "Leave It To Me" (up-tempo track, great vocals. This song is reminiscent of his classic "That Girl".), "Doctor Faith" (a great pop/rock track with impressive guitar chords & wonderful backing vocals. This track features the legendary Michael McDonald on vocals), "Help Me Cry" (a slow build-up track to a great melody), "Still I Resist" (great orchestral base track & vocals), "Poor Man's Ectasy" (mid-tempo rock track) & "Everything". Okay tracks are "I'm Too Old For This" & "Rescue". On overall, this is a great CD release by a masterful singer-songwriter, a highly recommended CD listening.
