"Even though he only wrote 4 of the songs of the album, this album reflects on the struggles in Cetera's life at the time of the recording. He was in the midst of a divorce (to Diane Nini who co-wrote "Glory of Love" with him) and the idea of having to live away from his daughter, Claire. The songs written by Cetera are easily the best of the album- "Restless Heart", "Even a Fool Can See", "World Falling Down", and "Have You Ever Been in Love". These songs tug at your heart as you feel the pain Cetera is going through. The track "Even a Fool Can See" is such a good track. Not only are the lyrics poignant, but the title itself is ironic because he's really not over the loss of his family. Definitely Peter Cetera at his best! I just wish he'd release albums more often than every 4 or 5 years. He truly is one of the great singers of our time."

"So it seems a few people are of the opinion that Cetera should release new work more than every 3, 4, or 5 years. I happen to disagree. Cetera is such a talent, and every release is absolutely exquisite. Each album is meticulous and near perfect. The lulls in between just make it all worth the wait. And then some. And then some. He gives you just enough time to miss his presence from the music scene (especially since he doesn't get near the airplay he deserves), and then he comes back and gives you a swift kick in the tail. His talent and track record have earned him the right to take his time and do it right. I have always liked the 1992 Cetera release "World Falling Down" but until recently never knew it was put together during a time of emotional personal distress for Cetera. Knowing this quantified for me the raw power and emotion involved with this CD. It all made even more sense. Not a single stinker on this one. Standouts, if there are any, are "Have You Ever Been In Love", "Even a Fool Can See" and "Restless Heart"."

"When I keep thinking about Peter Cetera, I always look back on his days with Chicago. After his departure from the group, his solo career has been a lackluster of a his former self.His 1992 album, World Falling Down, is a beautiful collection of songs that still spark a scream into any Cetera fan. The songs blend here elegantly from Restless Heart, Cetera's final Top 40 song, to his dynamic duet with Chaka Khan, on the song Feels Like Heaven, and even a short reunion with Chicago member, Bill Champlin on Wild Ways. Each song here still shows that same old soul that Cetera has been known for. Although many fans of Peter Cetera, still prefer his works with Chicago, this album still captures his once known signature sound. I truly enjoyed this album."
