Album of the Day
Christopher Cross conquered the pop world with his self-titled 1979 debut, and third studio album EVERY TURN OF THE WORLD shows the singer-songwriter broadening his musical approach. The iconic cover flamingo has been replaced by a racing car, and while the Warner Bros. collection still features such trademark adult contemporary ballads as “Love Found A Home” and “Open Your Heart,” Cross definitely revs up the engine here. Lead single “Charm the Snake” and “Swing Street” are just a couple of the uptempo songs, and in addition to his sterling vocal work, Cross emerges as a terrific guitar player on these ten originals. Produced by Michael Omartian (who also contributes keyboards), EVERY TURN OF THE WORLD was released 35 years ago this month and is definitely ripe for rediscovery.
