5.0 out of 5 stars Third time lucky, another top notch effort., 24 Oct. 2009

This review is from: The Seer (Audio CD)
Released in 1986, this was Big Country's third album after 'The Crossing' and 'Steeltown', BC maintained the high quality of their first two albums, and as such this proves that BC were a genuinely talented band and were no flash in the pan.

Whilst there are no bad songs on this, the first seven tracks are a feast of musical excellence, especially the big drummed 'Look Away' (BC's biggest hit single) The beautiful seering 'Eiledon', the catchy anthemic 'One Great Thing' and the brooding ballad 'Hold The Heart'. Other highlights IMO are 'The Sailor' and 'Song Of The South'.

Whilst this is a good album, I don't like it quite as much as 'Steeltown' which proceeded it. It feels more commercial and like a collection of singles rather than a coherent album. However it is certainly worthy of five stars.

This album has a distinctly mid-80s feel to it, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your point of view. Overall one of Big Country's best works.
