Christopher Cross made a belated comeback in 1995 with Window. Cross hadn't made any great changes to his adult contemporary ballad stylings, although the record certainly bears the stamp of mid-'90s production techniques. Perhaps he would have been able to re-enter the charts if he had been able to come up with a selection of material that was melodically engaging, but most of the record is devoid of anything resembling hooks; instead, it relies on its production to make an impact. As a result, Window is a bland collection of faceless, mellow pop that works only as background music.
