"When I saw the band after a couple of years, I had just seen them on MTV playing King Of Emotion, and I thought that they were back with a "full on" album as I heard first time in "The Crossing" and "The Seer", but after listening to this album, I thought maybe not, it didn't have their catchy tunes as their earlier albums. After I had listened to it, a couple of more times the songs started to grow on me and I really had to admit, I started to really enjoy it. It's not what I expected from the band, but I do recomend it to all Big Country fans as a place on their CD racks as it shows how diversified they have become."
One of my favorites...

"Big Country is a band that could never be duplicated. That Scottish sound, that sense of pride, the sting of emotional pain. This is a band that can visit so many different areas in one album. visits all those places. I consider this CD to be a more mature version of Big Country. More layers of background vocals, outstanding drumming continues, great guitar work (with that scottish bagpipe sound), the powerful lyrics (check out "Thousand Yard Stare"). is wonderful. Fresh, tight, flowing. If you like "The Crossing, "Steeltown", and "The Seer", then you'll love "Peace In our Time". Buy it, jump in the car, put down the top, and just drive. You'll understand."
