Big Country - Driving to Damascus (2004) Retail CD
Alternative Pop/ Rock
Adult Alternative Pop/ Rock
It is a terrible tradgedy that this album was the last that Big Country recorded with the late Stuart Adamson. Sad because it seems that big country were back on track. During the nineties the popularity of the band declined even though some excellent albums were produced (The Buffalo Skinners springs to mind). This album was brave enough to move away from the standard tone of a Big Country album (swirlling guitars, echoing drums and E-bows galore and timbres and visions of panoramic highland landscapes), and move into the present while retaining its identity - it IS still a big country recordmore…. There are interesting string arrangements, not least on See You, (which should have been a hit single, due to its catchy melody and up-to-date feel), there interesting synth sounds and a refreshingly dry production - bye bye reverb! On top of this there are some wonderful musical moments. The beautiful "Fragile Thing" is simple yet effective and is ornamented by Eddie Reader's haunting voice, while "Dive Into Me" retains all the power that one would normally associate with Big Country. The highlight however, is actually found on the special edition with the four bonus tracks; "Too Many Ghosts" is as powerful and emotional a song as I have heard in years, with heart-wrenching lyrics about regret and failure, and a melody to match. This album is well worth investigating, but will, sadly, leave you wondering what if...?
