"Lost in Love" is the fifth studio album by Australian soft rock band Air Supply, released in 1980. Their previous four albums never received much attention outside Australia, but "Lost in Love" was a massive success on international charts. It peaked at #22 in the US with three Top 5 singles. It sold over 3 million copies, reaching multi-platinum status.

Overview

The music is mainly composed of love songs and pop ballads, with much more sensitive and melodic touches than its predecessors. Hit singles include the title track "Lost in Love", which peaked at #3 on US charts in May 1980 and earned Graham Russell a composer award for "song of the year" and "most played song". The song is considered by many to be their signature song and is admittedly Russell Hitchcock's favourite. The single, "All Out of Love", became the biggest hit from the album, reaching #2 in the US. It has been regarded as their most famous song, including being interpreted several times. The third top 5 single of the album, "Every Woman in the World", peaked at #5 in the US. "Chances" was never a single but has been included on many of the band's hits compilations. "Just Another Woman", a disco song, was originally released on the album, "Life Support".

Production

The album achieved mainstream worlwide popularity due to the work of producer Clive Davis and the new contract with Arista Records, introducing the band into the US. Its style and Russell Hitchcock high pitched voice were quickly brought to popular attention. This was the first Air Supply album to crack the American charts. According to the liner notes in the compilation disc "", until the release of "Lost in Love", the band was so poor that Russell and Hitchcock had to search in the back of hotel couches in search of pennies to buy bread.

Reaction

The album gave Air Supply a huge fan base by the time the album was released and gave the band recognition as "most successful pop group" and "best group of 1981". Critics praised the album as their best studio album along with their follow-up album, "The One That You Love".
