Now and Forever
Air Supply
Now and Forever was Air Supply’s last platinum album in America. Like all of the duo’s albums, it has an uneven selection of material; the best songs were the singles – Even the Nights Are Better and Two Less Lonely People in the World. Even when the group performs weak material, they sound fine, but the lack of first-rate songs became disheartening after a while” (Erlewine).
