Midge's comeback album with Celtic influence

(5 out of 5 stars)
"In Europe, Midge Ure needed the help of a Swatch-commercial to make his song "Breathe" popular and get the well-deserved attention of his fourth solo album, a few years after its original release. With "Breathe", he finally had a hit again that was missing on his former album "Pure" and that brought him back into the charts.
From his solo albums, Breathe is my absolute favorite. Sure, it does not contain any pop hymns like in his Ultravox time, and some might consider it too mellow. However, I think that wonderful lyrics about love and emotion, his clear and brilliant voice, and a beautiful and touching music with a strong Celtic influence, using mandolins, Celtic harp, and accordion, make this album to a highlight in his solo career.
Even though only the song "Breathe" became a hit in Europe, the album has many great songs like Fields of Fire, Fallen Angel, and Trail of Tears. My favorite is the duet "Guns and Arrows" with Sally Dworsky, a song about opening yourself to your partner and telling about your worries.
Everyone who likes Midge's other albums will love this one, and if you have not heard him before you might fall in love with his music after listening to "Breathe". If you enjoyed this album, you will also like "A Glorious Noise", a live album recorded in 2001 during his Breathe concert tour."
