If I could give it 6 stars, I would

"His first solo outing (during a break from Ultravox), this album is simply brilliant, top to bottom, made even better by the inclusion of 4 additional tracks (the last 4, courtesy of Cerise Reed and the official Ultravox Web site a klinker in the bunch, from the UK #1 "If I Was" to two of the best pop instrumentals "Antilles" and "Chieftan" to a vast improvement on Jethro Tull and David Bowie tunes ("Living in the Past" and the extra track " The Man Who Sold the World") this disc is a winner."
A very rare talent

"Of all the singer/songwriters/musicians in the world (and how many do all three?), Midge Ure is nearly unrivaled, and my personal all-time favorite. Many rank him equally with Peter Gabriel in terms of talent, and is not as well known only because he always remains true to his music and does not write for the sake of popularity. Anyone who doubts the depth of his talent need only to see him perform live to understand. I was once honored to see him play in San Francisco, along with 4 other guitarists - he blew them all away, just a man and his guitar, and a talent far surpassing anyone on his class. If there are others in his class. From the first note that left his mouth, it became a joke among the other performers that no one was really there to see them at all. Midge Ure's skill, talent, and sincerity as a composer are worlds above the rest. His voice is flawless and full of heart. Why he is not more well known isn't a mystery; he puts his energy into his music instead of into marketing. And we are all the luckier for that."
Midge Ure is an angel brought to earth.

"I bought this cd, thinking for some reason, that it was a decade later release called, "Breathe". I continued in that misapprehension even when I listened to the cd for a few days--that's how timeless it is. This cd could have been recorded today, and it would top the charts.Musically, it is a mixture of the synthesizer style used by earlier Ultravox; the synthesizer is used as both a drone and a melodic instrument. However, this cd includes some particularly inventive forays into Japanese instrumental music. Like "Little Orphans",..., Edo, and The Chieftains, are brilliant examples of rhythmic wizardry. In short, "The Gift" is a can't-be-missed addition to any fan of this New Wave icon's extensive musical career."
