"This is one of THE most wonderful CD's I have ever had the good fortune of listening to. I purchased this CD originally in 1990 and subsequently lost it to my ex in our divorce. I thought so much of this CD that I purchased it on my own - and I STILL love the music. Chris Rea has a unique, sexy quality to his voice that cannot be adequately described. You MUST listen to experience!"
A must have Chris Rea album

"I'd heard about Chris Rea off and on through the years and apart from a few songs, knew next to nothing about his output. Come 2006, I find myself engrossed in this artist and his entire body of work. Sadly, I doubt I will ever get to see him perform live here in the states.
I get drawn into this album more and more with each subsequent listen. The only song I don't really care for is "Crack that mould", but apart from that it is a winner. A very atmospheric and relaxing album to my ears. I enjoy listening to this one on the way to work in the morning too. A solid and consistent release that rates close to the top of Rea output! If you have any Chris Rea, you should add this to your collection.
Chris Rea Superb

"CHRIS REA - What a great talent, he doesn't scream, doesn't strain, delivers every song, wonderful composer, singer, musician. He should be #1 on the charts for many of his songs. I try to say which is the best but they all are and I am 75 years old and he touches my heart. I have introduced many people to the wonders of this fellow and the comments are unanimous "Where Is He Performing in th USA". Most of all he doesn't have an attitude it is obvious that he just loves what he does and he does it so well. Saw him on Letterman few years back doing "Road To Hell" now that should be a #1 Hit in these times it is so TRUE. On The Beach transports all of us to days gone by, man woman boy or girl. Superb One of a Kind."
