Product Description

Big Wheel & Others’ is Cass McCombs’ seventh-and-a-half album. The new double album follows the landmark albums ‘Dropping The Writ’, ‘Catacombs’, ‘Wit’s End’ and ‘Humour Risk’, among other releases, and is further proof of McCombs’ status as one of his generation’s most visionary, defiant and inspirational songwriters - as uncompromising, radical and genuinely counter-cultural as any other artist working today

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the one stars! 2 Dec 2013
By martynp
Format:Audio CD
I read exactly the same Q review as those quoted (although I have to say, the years when I relied on Q's opinion are long gone). For me this is a fabulous album, full of character, great/quirky lyrics and varied melodic styles. An album that polarizes opinion this much - albeit from a very small sample - has to be worth a listen, at least?

4.0 out of 5 stars Is it rollin'? 10 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There's a raft of these groovin', kinda lo-fi albums knocking about over the past couple of years, and they have a lot in common: great hooky songs, decent straight ahead playing, and they all just fall short of being indispensable. Cass McCombs' "Big Wheels & Others" fits the bill: it swings and sways and at its best - "There Can Be Only One" - it really sounds great. McCombs writes and plays pretty well (that's a compliment - not meant as faint praise), and the sound is warm and rich. This sounds like a great band all sitting around in a circle, playing off each other (leaning in, as Dylan once famously said). However, 22 tracks stretched out over 86 minutes (including the, uh, cute takes of Sean talking) is asking a lot of a listener.
So, like a lot of double albums (and the odd triple, you know who you are The Clash) this is pretty good, and worth buying, but it would have made a cracking single album. There are a fair amount of ordinary tracks here (though little filler) and a handful of stone cold classics, and some judicious editing and advice from the producer (Cass himself) would have only have improved things.
Why four stars? Because it sounds so good, and because the good songs are great, and because I've already knocked out a single cd version of this for my iTunes.
If you like Jonathan Wilson, Phosphorescent, Eels and Real Estate, then sign yourselves up for another jangly Telecaster ride.

A good mix, bit of everything, bit of country, bit of rock variety is the spice of life and this cd does that.
