5.0 out of 5 stars The Big Music, 20 April 2003
This review is from: The Best Of The Waterboys '81-'90 (Audio CD)
At their best, The Waterboys matched the brilliance of founder Mike Scott’s heroes like Patti Smith and Van Morrison, in creating poetic masterpieces with a spiritual essence/trancendent quality – “the Big Music” as Scott calls it. Examples are the dark, powerful Killing My Heart, the gentle ballad The Whole Of The Moon and the soaring Spirit. At their worst, they gave us singalong Celtic Folk like And A Bang On The Ear and others, but even these are rendered memorable by catchy melodies and the wonderful mix of instruments. Most of the songs fall somewhere inbetween, although the melodic A Man Is In Love and All The Things She Gave Me also stand with the Big Music. I’d really like to give it four stars, but an album with classics like Killing My Heart or Spirit deserves the full five!
