Review: 'The Earth Is . . . ' by Air Supply

'The Earth Is . . . ' by Air Supply, 1991, Giant Records. Cover: interesting. Lyrics are included.

Air Supply excels at the ballad, and this album proves it. Enduring love is explored in 'Stronger Than the Night'; 'The Earth Is' talks about how we're all connected and need each other; 'Speaking of Love' is about deep love and looking for confirmation of it. 

Unexpectedly, there's a song in Spanish on this tape, 'Dame Amor,' which is about a man wanting his love to give him her heart. The loss of love is the subject of 'Without You,' and the lyrics are nature-inspired in 'Dancing with the Mountain,' about being alone with the one you love. 

Then there's 'Bread and Blood,' the lyrics of which we have a serious problem with, as it's concerned with faith not getting in the way of love. 

All in all, this isn't our favourite album. But it does have 'Without You,' which we've always liked. 

Favourite lyrics include: 'No I can't forget this evening/Or your face as you were leaving/But I guess that's just the way the story goes . . . I can't live, if living is without you/I can't give, I can't give anymore' ('Without You').
