5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album! 31 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic stuff. I think what makes it so good is that it has some class tracks, and absolutely no stinkers to bring the album down. Powerful sound, brilliant album to have on when your driving!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Big Country 29 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
A unique sound from a unique group.The guitar rifts that remind me of bagpipes,yet so much better, reverberate around my brain long after the CD player is turned off.The lyrics are superb, especially on the somewhat disturbing yet brilliant track "Chance". A CD I very much enjoy,perhaps made more poignant by the untimely death of Stuart Adamson. Big Country never achieved the acclaim I think they deserved, but for fans this is indeed a good a good one for your collection.

This album released in the early nineties covers the heyday of Big Country. All their hits from the first four albums are covered - brilliant for blasting out in the car

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin 9 Jan 2008
By Big Jim TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Tracks on this album go back 25 years and I loved them then and I still love them now. I am only sorry that Stuart and the boys never got the critical credit and public acclaim they deserved. One of the few bands to keep guitars in the charts in the 80's they never reached the heights of U2 (I remember seeing Stuart Adamson joining Bono and the band at Hammersmith for an encore in 1982/83 I think) but their stirring music appealed to the celt in all of us. Not a duff track on this album representing as it does the heyday of their glorious noise. Don't forget the later albums either, still a cut above anything else out there at the time and still hold good today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Country Big Sound 18 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I always thought they were treated as a bit of a poor relation to Simple Minds and U2 . I thought their sound was completely distinctive and certainly the 'Scottishness' shone through . I lent this album to a Scottish Military colleaugue he liked it so much that he never gave it back ..... bloody Pikey ! Any way I'll buy it again and really enjoy listening again . I am very sorry about Stewart Adamson though a sad end to avery talented man

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Best Of's ever 25 Jun 2010
By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
God, but I love this album with its great rousing anthemic rocking sound. Memorable track after memorable track with its unique bagpipe-ish guitar sound and great solos. Powerful singing, thoughtful lyrics. My vision of Heaven would be a Big Country concert with me in the audience punching my fist in the air which I never actually did. This is just brilliant distinctive stuff which I've loved since I first bought it over a decade ago and can't imagine ever stopping loving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Album to summarise a brilliant band 6 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
Big Country were a fantastic group who were around for far too short a time and Stuart Adamson's untimely parting was a loss to the music business. This album brings together all their best tracks and demonstrates just what they could do. Sadly missed.
