On this album Cockburn fires off some of the most politically potent material of his career, including If A Tree Falls which tackled the issue of the rain destruction. This remastered version of Big Circumstance features a bonus track, an acoustic version of If A Tree Falls. Sharpened rather than dulled by the passage of time, Big Circumstance remains a powerful testament to one man's social conscience and artistic vision.

One of Bruce's best.
A fine, underrated effort

"I've been a big fan of Bruce Cockburn's since "Stealing Fire", and I own most of his earlier work now. This is not his finest album, but it's very good. "I Don't Feel Your Touch" is one of the most poignant broken heart songs you'll find, and the playful, thoughtful "Shipwrecked At the Stable Door" is wonderful. Give it a listen; you won't regret it."

"Carries the anger of "If I had a Rocket Launcher" (Where the Death Squad Lives), and environmentalism (Radium Rain, If a Tree Falls), and love (Pangs of Love), and so much more. I just re-listened to my tape (CD on "will-get" list), and every emotion is portrayed in these 11 songs. Plus, can the man ever pick guitar! One for the ages!"
