Big Country

Are there any Big Country fans in this forum?

I kinda stumbled upon this Scottish group around 2001, apparently after Stuart Adamson's suicide Same thing happened when I got into INXS (November of 1997).

I never knew that back in the 80's people pitted Big Country against U2, pretty funny actually.

But for those looking for some great music with awesome lyrics check out some of their earlier works: The Crossing, Steeltown, Seer.

Heck, some of ya'll might've heard some of their hits: In a Big Country, Wonderland, The Storm, Look Away, etc...

I can't say enough about this group. The layering of sounds on their albums are astounding and the melodies are so catchy.

So ummm, any Big Country fans?

Dunno if I count as a fan, but I know quite a lot of their songs. and all the ones I can recall off the top of my head are really good ones. I'm going to borrow a copy of their CD if I can find it, actually. They had some good songs.

Fields of Fire and In A Big Country are the only ones I can remember the names of atm, they were great. King of Emotion, that was one too, wasnt it?

Yeah, a bit of a blast from the past for me. I saw them live on the Steeltown tour (about 1985???) - they were great - really enjoyed The Crossing as an album - have to relisten to them now you've reminded me about them.

Re: Big Country

I didn't considere myself a fan, but I do like most of their stuff. I only have one album though, "the Seer". which gets regular playing time.
