Lost in Love
Air Supply
Review:
“With the release of Lost in Love, Air Supply led the early part of the ‘80s with a successful run of soft pop love songs of the sweetest variety. Graham Russell’s overly poetic, overly romantic lyrics were usually accompanied by the fragile plucking of an acoustic guitar or the soft tinkling of piano, and throughout every album their insipid musical style never strayed. Air Supply’s recipe was indeed rewarding, since the first three songs released from Lost in Love made it into the Top Five…The rest of the tracks on Lost in Love are carbon copies of the hits, but it was this album that kicked off their illustrious career…The albums that followed, 1981’s The One That You Love and 1982’s Now and Forever, yielded seven Top 40 hits between the two of them, carrying on where bands such as Bread, Firefall, and England Dan & John Ford Coley left off in the ‘70s. Because of Air Supply's faithful allegiance to their sentimentally flavored tastes, …Lost in Love stands as the perfect proxy” (DeGagne).
