In a Big Country

AdvantagesAnthemic, Original Guitar playing, great vocals

DisadvantagesOn the first track dated production from Steve Lillywhite

I always had the red cover, and still do on vinyl. The album is a winner in every way. Ten tracks with a charm and style all unique. "In A Big Country" the first track starts with a bang with lots of tumbling drum rolls and anthemic vocals, ..." Read review

On one such occasion he pulled this LP out 'The Crossing' and asked me if I'd heard anything by them, I said I hadn't and I remember him saying ' Trust me, if you don't have this album, then you really don't have a ..."

The single edit of The Prettiest Star is better than the version here. (*)
Great set of songs, My personal favourite from his Glam period
Not everyone will like the concept (*)
Great vocals, guitar and bass, with some interesting drum sounds too.
Some of the songs go on for too long and one is slightly too boring. (*)
The bands attempt to rekindle their sound from their early days of MTV
Poor ballads and too many of them... (*)
As ever, great playing and a few very good tracks
Some run-of-the-mill fare, with sub-standard lyrics in places (*)
