Crossing (Reviewed by Dark Wave):
morning, as I tuned the news at cnn.com, I was shocked. Stuart Adamson,
singer and leader of one the greatest band of the 80s has been found dead.
I had this idea of doing this review of this great album for a long time
but I think this is the right time to remember people how great his music
year is 1983, I am three years old, the single "In A Big Country"
is being played by MTV, radio and everywhere around the world. The sound
is unique, a creative mix of U2 and plenty of other bands. I was still
to young to appreciate at his fullest the greatness of Big Country's music.
Years later, when I began my 80s craze, this band began to be one of my
favs because of this album.
and richness of this album is incredible, the production is perfect, the
lyrics are often very beautiful like in the song "Chance", "Fields
of fire" and many others.
Big Country's biggest success in America, they created other great albums
but this one will always remain in my heart forever. Thank you Stuart...thank
you to a wonderful band for having created such great music. I am eternally

to this review by Trixter:
Adamson and his bandmates created a unique sound, unlike anything I've
ever heard. Exciting and fresh. When "In A Big Country" expoded
onto the charts in the US, I was in awe, this new sound, the bagpipes
and rock music together. It created a festive mood and it is in this festive
mood that I will remember Big Country and Stuart Adamson, thanks for the
music and memories. "...dreams stay with you..."
