AIR SUPPLY : The One That You Love

The One That You Love is the sixth album by British/Australian soft rock duo Air Supply, released in 1981. The album became their most famous and successful in their career. It reached No. 10 in Australia and the United States.

Overview

The album was released after their major success with their previous album, Lost in Love, and multiplied the band’s popularity through the first period of the 1980s. Production was carried out by Harry Maslin, while the project featured Clive Davis as executive producer. The single, “The One That You Love“, became the band’s first and only No. 1 hit in the US. “Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You)” reached No. 5 on the US chart, being closely related to the style of Barry Manilow, one of the band’s influences.[2] The third single of the album was “Sweet Dreams“, followed by “Keeping the Love Alive”. The track “I’ll Never Get Enough of You” was used as the main theme of a Japanese TV novel and was released as a single, becoming a hit there.[3] This was their first entry into any Asian chart.

Reception

Cash Box said “The group had a wildly successful year in 1980. The One That You Love follows in the same vein as last year’s debut with those lifting ballads and helium vocal. Best cuts on this collection of classic adult contemporary fare are ‘Keeping the Love Alive’ and ‘I Want to Give It All’.”[4]
