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.

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!

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

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.

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

I have at least 3 of their LP,s in the loft and now after watching a video of Restless Natives the soundtrack made me realised it was time to get something to remind me of what I was missing. An integrated almost unique Scottish sound from their playing long before Runrig and a few others grabbed the attention of us lowland Scots and the rest of the nation at the same time.
Real memories resurface from those times and it will never be the same again with the sad loss of Stuart Adamson . Stick the disc in the car ,turn it up and take a drive through some of the countryside it will shake out the cobwebs for you.

I recall this Big Country compilation from several years ago and only recently bought it again as I gave away my original copy , in fact I once had the the VHS video of the same name.
Anyway it's worth 5 stars just for In A Big Country, Fields Of Fire, Chance, Just A Shadow, One Great Thing and Peace In Our Time.
It's all Scottish guitars to the fore and the whole band come together to make a unique sound which just has to be heard.
Coming in at nearly 75 minutes it's good value for money, so it's a strong recommendation from me.

Big Country captured a moment in musical time that'll never be repeated. I'm a big fan of many current bands but this is something else. Buy this along with the rest of the their albums and you'll understand. The lyrics, the guitar riffs and the passion are something to behold. Check out the 'Final Fling' DVD live from Berlin - outstanding! I only wish I was back in the late 80's/early 90's to see these guys live. A unique sound and one of the most under-rated bands of our time.
