Having made a more agressively contemporary album working with Madonna compatriot Patrick Leonard on his last outing, Peter Cetera collaborated with Andy Hill on World Falling Down for an album that maintained his usual production sheen but moved more toward a melodic rock & roll feel -- lots of chiming guitars and 4/4 rhythms. Cetera's airy tenor didn't really have enough grit to carry such an approach off, and Warner Bros. may have worried that he had veered too far from his traditional power-ballad base, since there are two added tracks produced by old partner David Foster that are more in keeping with Cetera's old hits. The record company also was careful to release only ballads as the album's singles, with the perhaps predictable result that "Restless Heart," "Feels Like Heaven" (a duet with Chaka Khan), and "Even a Fool Can See" (one of The Foster productions, with a Chicago-like born chart) were all over Adult Contemporary radio for the next year, though only "Restless Heart" made the pop Top 40, while the album was a commercial failure.

If you know and have experienced Peter Cetera's wonderful tenor voice, and if you also 'believe in Peter's voice', you will love this album. This is mostly an album of romantic ballads (of love and love lost) sung by Peter Cetera (one a duet with Chaka Khan). My two favorites are "The Last Place God Made" and "Dip Your Wings" near the end of the album. To 'dip your wings' is for a pilot to bank the plane's wings to the left and right, signaling either a 'hello' of 'goodbye'. My father on more than one occasion 'dipped the wings' of his small plane to me and my brothers as he flew off. Both the music and lyrics of "Dip Your Wings"are very moving. "Even a Fool Can See" produced by David Foster is a great song, that speaks of one's lost love, yet it is also a message to one's friends that he or she is 'all right'. The song starts with Peter's tenor voice and piano, but towards the middle of the song David brings in a nice touch of 'Chicago" style brass. "Where There Is No Tomorrow" starts out with Peter and subtle strings and synthesizer, but is soon joined by a very strong bass line with drums. Again, if you have appreciated Peter's voice singing with 'Chicago' or doing his own solo work, you will enjoy this album.
