It is that good

(5 out of 5 stars)

"You thought Big Country was a one hit wonder and disappeared inthe early 80's? Not a chance. This release would be exceptional fromany band. That veterans almost 20 years into their career couldfashion something so vibrant is phenomenal. A comeback? Hardly. Theywere never gone. You just didn't hear anything off "The BuffaloSkinners" or "Why The Long Face". Ray Davies, one ofthe great ones, co-wrote 2 of these tunes. Not that Stuart needed anyhelp. His songcraft is better than ever. Buy it and enjoy the earthy,passionate music. "Dive Into Me" is a tremendous single. If BCdoes anything for you at all, this release is essential. So many bandsdie a dog death. BC goes out screaming with some of the finest musicthey have ever produced."
Phenomenal

"I'd been a passing fan of Big Country in the 80s; my younger brother eventually bought most of their US LPs, so when I saw the later 1990s recordings I let him know about them just as a courtesy.To say I was blown away by this album when he gave it to me would be an understatement. It's one of the best things I've heard in the last couple of years, consistently strong all the way through.If all you've heard is their one-hit material, or even their 1980s output, you probably won't expect this either. No bagpipe-like guitars, no overdramatic 80s-style production (not that those things ever bothered ME). Just a classic rock album that ranges in mood from the countryish ballad "See You" to the spookily spiritual "Your Spirit To Me" to the hard-driving title track to the hilarious rant about media oversaturation, "The President Slipped and Fell," to the beautiful "Fragile Thing."A keeper."

"I was introduced to BC music just a year ago, and have become a huge fan. Stuart's poetry is phenomenal, his music is genius, and I find myself wondering what happened....why someone so against violence with a real message left us through such violence against himself. So far Buffalo Skinners is my favorite CD--excellent rock. Song #1 is one of my favorites of all music, and I consider BC among other greats like "Yes" "Led Zepplin" and "Moody Blues" among others. Stuart was obviously impassioned to a point that many never reach, and I am so grateful he used his gift to express his soul. Amazing."
