Cy Curnin

The Returning Sun

Review by Eric Meli

In the 1980s  Cy Curnin was in this band called “The Fixx.” Now 20-plus years later Curnin’s current self-release has him teamed up with producer Doug Beck to create a very well written and catchy set of tunes

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2008  Volume 1 at

Track by Track Review
We Might Find It
The CD’s opener starts off with a Simple Minds sound to it.
Remember Me When I'm Gone
This is a well written song about remembering someone when they’re gone – but you can get that from the title.
The Returning Sun
The title track’s a nice catchy pop tune.

Falling Apart Together
There is a nice 80s feel to this song.
Fork In The Road
This one has very good insightful lyrics written and sung by Curnin.

Hope Springs Eternal
Another well written song, this seems to be about a woman afraid  of growing old
The Future’s Not What It Used To Be
Here we have a good song with great lyrics that sound to me that is about not letting the media rule the future

Nothing Is Normal
This track seems to be about how the real things are being replaced. It has a nice ethereal sound to it

The World Will Always Turn
This cut has a reggae / funk beat to it. It’s a very good song.
Damned If You Do
The CD's closing track is another well written and well played number.
