Background: Christopher Cross was released in December, 1979, and reached #6 on the U.S. album charts, being certified 5 times platinum by the RIAA.

The four singles released from the album reached #24, #15, #10, and “Never Be the Same” reached #1. gave Christopher Cross a 4 1/2 star review:

Christopher Cross’ debut was a huge hit and widely acclaimed, at least among industry professionals (critics didn’t give it a second listen), leading to multi-platinum success and Grammys. In retrospect, it might seem like the kind of success that’s disproportional to the record itself, especially to hipper-than-thou younger generations, but in truth, Christopher Cross was a hell of a record — it just was a hell of a soft rock record, something that doesn’t carry a lot of weight among most audiences. … And while the hits like the dreamy “Sailing” and the surging “Ride Like the Wind” deserved all the attention, they’re hardly the only highlights here — to borrow a sports metaphor, this has a deep bench, and there’s not a weak moment here. In fact, soft rock albums hardly ever came better than this, and it remains one of the best mainstream albums of its time.
