Off the charts but in our hearts......

"Once again, Big Country made BEAUTIFUL music on this CD that came out in 1993. I believe a few of the songs actually came out on their previous outing, "No place like home". (Ships, etc).
Ships has to be one of the best songs BC ever did; and one of my fav songs from ANY group.
I also love Seven Waves...
every tune on here is great.
Stuart Adamson had a gift for songwriting, folks.
this band NEVER sold out. they augmented their sound as they went into the 90s but any band has to do that stay alive. they couldnt keep redoing The Crossing for 20 years!!!
I believe up til the very end, Adamson just couldnt handle not getting the recognition they deserved and succumbed to a losing battle with alcohol. its a shame.
though BC has since gotten back together and toured sans Adam, its just not the same."
