The music on this Compact Digital Disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to preserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of its high resolution, however, the Compact Disc can reveal limitations of the source tape.

The Compact Disc Digital Audio System offers the best possible sound reproduction - on a small, convenient disc. Its remarkable performance is the result of a unique combination of digital storage and laser optics. For best results, you should apply the same care in storing and handling the Compact Disc as you would with conventional records. No cleaning is necessary if the Compact Disc is always held by its edges and is replaced in its case directly after playing. If the Compact Disc becomes soiled by fingerprints, dust or dirt, it can be wiped (always in a straight line, from center to edge) with a clean and lint-free, soft, dry cloth. Never use a solvent or abrasive cleaner to clean the disc. If you follow these suggestions, the Compact Disc will provide a lifetime of listening enjoyment.

Admittedly works
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 1st, 2004

It's a shame that Christopher Cross is thought of, for the most part and, where I come from, in a banal way that one sometimes feels as though they have to "admit" to finding some of his recordings enjoyable but to get the point across, I've decided to get such teenage wordings out of the way so I can now discuss this album's good points that outweigh the bad here at the end of the day! "Someday" opens the album with a good start, a bouncy upbeat catchy tune, interesting how Michael McDonald returns on background vocals for this track, perhaps trying to recapture the "Ride like the wind" glory days? Make no mistake, this track comes nowhere close to the power that track had/has, but it's still useful. "Never stop believing" continues the bouncy pop feel, this time with more plinky keys, it has a good hook and you can hear Christine good on this track. McVie and Cross make a nice musical pairing. "Swept away" can easily be seen as corny romantic tripe but given a chance it is a moving ballad and it does work. Some US listeners may recognize this track featured in a memorable Hawaiian episode of the TV sitcom "Growing pains" at the time. Unfortunately, things start to go downhill here, "Any old time" has a punchy rock sound (compared to the previous poppy numbers enclosed) but oddly has some yawning steel guitar sounds that makes one wonder if they were trying to tread Country music waters here. The hook is not as good on this one either. "I will (Take you forever)" is straightforward ballad duet (with Frances Ruffelle) fare, formulamatic, nothing special. "She told me so" has a tougher bounce but the hook doesn't really add up, I get the feeling it may have worked if this song had been done differently. We also get the whimsical pop of "I'll be alright", it's not my thing, but I could see others liking it. The mid tempo clave shuffling pop closer "Just one look" is fair as is the pleasant light title track but "Alibi" is a very good ballad, seems like a much overlooked track, though Christopher probably just suits that kind of material no matter how hard he tries to do other things. In the end, there's 4 out of 10 very good tracks and a couple OK ones chucked in making it better than what many albums carry.
