This review is from: The Greatest Hits Of Big Country And The Skids (Audio CD)Whilst I was a fan of Big Country, and previously The Skids, more years ago than I care to admit it wasn't until I listened to this double CD that I remembered just what powerful and unique music Stuart Adamson and the band(s)created. Even though many of the tracks on the CD were first recorded some 20 years ago they are still fresh, vibrant and relevant.
I thoroughly enjoyed the CD and would readily recommend it to Skids / Big Country fans and also to anyone who enjoys this genre of music.
The fact that Stuart Adamson died recently adds to the poignancy of the music. The haunting, almost bagpipe like guitar sound seems to have taken on a new meaning.
The icing on the cake is the fact that if you play the CD on a computer you can view / hear an excellent live on stage video of the classic track 'In a Big Country'.
