This, the self-titled first album by Pablo Cruise, proves the superior musicianship that characterized their music throughout the 70's and beyond. From the smooth groove of the opening track "Island Woman" driven by bassist Bud Cockrell, to the pop-rocker "What Does It Take", to lead guitarist David Jenkins' soulful acoustic ballad "In My Own Quiet Way", to the stunning climactic operetta - "Ocean Breeze", featuring both the classical genre of Cory Lerios' piano licks, as well as more classic white soul from Jenkins.

They rivaled Elton John's "Funeral For A Friend" with the driving instrumental "Zero To Sixty In Five" on their second album "Lifeline", and finally hit their first commercial success on their third album "A Place In The Sun". But it is this first album that defines Pablo Cruise as one of the most talented bands of the '70's. Nobody played better than these guys.

I'm guessing this record would be considered a "sleeper". While it doesn't contain any huge classic rock staples, there's plenty of great singing, writing, and playing throughout. My favorite tracks were "Island Girl", "Rock n Roller", and "Ocean Breeze", but it's all good. The only downside is that it has a very period 70's sound. It still compares favorably to what anyone is doing these days.

Their first album was a perfect fit into the times of the 70's. Their sound unique, moving and infectious. The musicianship top notch. They played at San Mateo high school, when I was a junior, just before this album was released and I was hooked. The release of "A Place in the Sun" only proved their excellence. I agree! Ocean Breeze is a must hear. I remember singing this to my girlfriend as we listened to the album together. A beautiful piece. Very moving.

Though the group went on to have many top 40 soft rock hits in the late 70's, and the formula that got those hits are amply displayed here, this album brought Ocean Breeze to the world, giving a glimpse of the true level of talent these guy's really had. At 12+ minutes, few stations ever played it. That tune is worth the price of admission.

listening tot his takes me back to a time and place that knows no time not place--san francisco in the 70's, a sweet time of concerts, people everywhere mixing in every way and time, and this band, a breath of clean white boys making time to the sea, a breath with each wave rolling in and out. innocence.

This album came out while I was in college. I listened to the tape so much that I actually wore it out. When I noticed that the CD was available I had to order it. I love this gentle smooth rock music.

This is Pablo Cruise's first album, before they sold out and became commerical. The vocals on Ocean Breeze are about the best any vocals can be. Ocean Breeze is a long song and a lot of it is instrumental, the vocals coming in at the end. That song alone is worth the price of this CD, but other songs on it are great as well.
