I would give this album way more than 5 stars if I could!!!

"Recently, I haven't been able to get enough of this man's music!!I began listening to Soul's Core again and saw it in a different light-appriciated it for what it was. I then bought "Beneath the Velvet Sun" and "Better Days"-both astounded me. The next album I bought was "Big Blue Sky"-I couldn't believe my ears the first time I put this album in to my CD player;I was amazed and every song enchanted me. It is in close-keeping with the kind of music on Soul's Core;quite folky and very acoustic and Shawn's song-writing is still second to none-he has the ability to take his audience away with him on a journey to where he was or how he felt when he wrote each particular song.On each track, you get transported to another place which is what makes Shawn Mullins so distinctively different from other artists. "Canyons and Caverns" is a brilliant track to open the album with;it is also where the line for the album title originates from-Shawn appears to be looking at an old picture of himself and remembering what it was like to be so young and how there are no restrictions to worry about at that age; 'There are canyons and there are caverns, and there are border road-side taverns, and I am held captive by the big blue sky above'-its a wonderful track.
Another absolutely stand-out track on this album is "The Sky's the Limit". This song was actually written by Matthew Kahler, a very good friend of Shawns'-they both met when they were struggling to make it as music artists years ago. It is a beautifully written song which gives you a sense of freedom when you hear it and the brilliant music encompasses these lyrics. 'The sky's the limit for the bird on the wing, and every minute now the view is changing.....its life on earth with the ground as an optional thing'.
Other fantastic tracks include "Lately", "In Her Eyes", "Pandora" and "Evolution Man".I highly recommend getting this album-you'd be missing out if you didn't!! There are no restrictions to where Shawn can take you with his music-it is heartfelt, passionate and inspirational. So buy this album and let yourself be completely absorbed by this wonderful music in another fantastic album by Shawn Mullins."
Good lyrics, and just plain good music

"Big Blue Sky is a a must have for a shawn mullins fan. The catchy " Canyons and Caverns" is one of the best tracks, that'll stay in your head for days. In "telling you" it describes a person trying to tell someone about how they were abused as a child. And you gotta love the haunting "hawksong". The sound is good, and it is great alblum to chill too. I also suggest getting "better days" and "eggshells""
After buying Soul's Core and Better Days I had to buy MORE!

"This artist simply does not disappoint. This disc is more folksy and personal than Soul's Core and Better Days, but after a few listens, it is a real solid piece of music to enjoy again and again. Shawn really opens his heart in the music and lyrics of this disc."
