Recently, I haven't been able to get enough of this man's music!!I began listening to Soul's Core again and saw it in a different light-appriciated it for what it was. I then bought "Beneath the Velvet Sun" and "Better Days"-both astounded me. The next album I bought was "Big Blue Sky"-I couldn't believe my ears the first time I put this album in to my CD player;I was amazed and every song enchanted me. It is in close-keeping with the kind of music on Soul's Core;quite folky and very acoustic and Shawn's song-writing is still second to none-he has the ability to take his audience away with him on a journey to where he was or how he felt when he wrote each particular song.

On each track, you get transported to another place which is what makes Shawn Mullins so distinctively different from other artists. "Canyons and Caverns" is a brilliant track to open the album with;it is also where the line for the album title originates from-Shawn appears to be looking at an old picture of himself and remembering what it was like to be so young and how there are no restrictions to worry about at that age; 'There are canyons and there are caverns, and there are border road-side taverns, and I am held captive by the big blue sky above'-its a wonderful track.

Another absolutely stand-out track on this album is "The Sky's the Limit". This song was actually written by Matthew Kahler, a very good friend of Shawns'-they both met when they were struggling to make it as music artists years ago. It is a beautifully written song which gives you a sense of freedom when you hear it and the brilliant music encompasses these lyrics. 'The sky's the limit for the bird on the wing, and every minute now the view is changing.....its life on earth with the ground as an optional thing'.

I'll start by saying this is probably my favourite Shawn Mullins album - and that's saying a hell of a lot as i love them all.
This is definately a worthwhile adition to any music collection that consists of music being played by actual instruments.

The music on this album is probably more like Souls Core than anything else, there are also elemnts of Matchbox 20, Hootie and the Blowfish and The Calling in there - most of the time though it's just Shawn and his guitar.

There are two songs on this album that, i think are above the rest - "For Shari" and "Canyons and Caverns". For Shari is a beautiful song, along the same lines of "You Mean Everything To Me" on Souls Core, beautiful lyrics and music - my most favourite song of his. "Canyons and Caverns" tells a really good story, it's kinda like reading the guys thoughts or memories. The line in this song where he sings "i am held captive by the big blue sky above me..." makes me both really happy and sends shivers up my spine... Excellent!

Now, this has been deleted and does cost a lot of money wherever you go, but please make sure you get this somehow - otherwise you'll miss out on Shawn's best work... honestly!

I actually only wanted to write this to recomend the album simply because of "For Shari" as i really love that song but anyone who's in love or who ever has been will relate to this mans music - any of it!

I cant recomend this highly enough!

This is one the best albumns i have listened to in years. Shawn is one of the most laid back guys ever, if you just want to relax listen to this. The Sky's the limit is inspiring and all of the others are right for any mood. Whatever you do, buy it!

Other fantastic tracks include "Lately", "In Her Eyes", "Pandora" and "Evolution Man".
I highly recommend getting this album-you'd be missing out if you didn't!! There are no restrictions to where Shawn can take you with his music-it is heartfelt, passionate and inspirational. So buy this album and let yourself be completely absorbed by this wonderful music in another fantastic album by Shawn Mullins.

good lyrics, and just plain good music 15 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Big Blue Sky is a a must have for a shawn mullins fan. The catchy " Canyons and Caverns" is one of the best tracks, that'll stay in your head for days. In "telling you" it describes a person trying to tell someone about how they were abused as a child. And you gotta love the haunting "hawksong". The sound is good, and it is great alblum to chill too. I also suggest getting "better days" and "eggshells"

Great music, great style, and most of all a great artist! 17 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love Big Blue Sky... the songs are top notch and I will always hold this CD close to my heart... I have 3 of Shawn Mullins' CDs and they are the 3 I listen to the most. not a day goes by without me getting one of his songs stuck in my mind... he's a great talent, and he's finally getting a little bit of well deserved fame! if you like Soul's Core, then you will no doubt like this CD too... the songs that stick out most to me are Lately, Canyons and Caverns, Baby Blue... I have almost cried sometimes while i listen to Baby Blue... there is one note that always gets to me... (and bringing me to the level of shedding a tear almost never happens...) powerful stuff in this CD! (check out eggshelss too!!)

After buying Soul's Core and Better Days I had to buy MORE! 29 Dec 1999
By William Egan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This artist simply does not disappoint. This disc is more folksy and personal than Soul's Core and Better Days, but after a few listens, it is a real solid piece of music to enjoy again and again. Shawn really opens his heart in the music and lyrics of this disc.

Once again Shawn hasn't let me down, if only he would tour to Melbourne, I'm sure he would fill the arena....
