REVIEWS
Average points: 5.6 (Reviews: 5)
******
"The Crossing" in 1983 war das debut von.....Bruce Watson, Stuart Adamson, Tony Butler und Mark Brzezicki..... fand es damals besser wie Duran Duran, aber sie hatte keine Grosse erfolgen.... Perle auf dieser album sind "Chance"und "In A Big Country"....dieser album war in November 1983 - # 13 in Album Charts in NL.
******
Selten hat eine Gruppe ein so starkes Debüt hingelegt wie Big Country mit "The Crossing". Zwar waren ihre nachfolgenden Alben nicht schlecht, aber die Klasse ihres Debüts konnten sie nie mehr erreichen. Anspieltipps: DieSinglehits "Fields of fire", "In a big country" und "Chance", sowie das unglaubliche "Porrohman".
*****
Gutes Album! Nach meiner Meinung eine stark unterschätzte Band.
******
Ein Super-Debut Album mit vielen starken Songs. Am besten Gefallen mir "In A Big Country", "Lost Patrol" und vorallem "Chance".
*****
War eines meiner Lieblingsalben als ich 15 Jährchen alt
war. Habe dann aber so ab Ende der 80er Jahre völlig
das Interesse an der Gruppe verloren, und nicht mal mehr
mitgekriegt, dass sich Sänger Stuart Adamson nach langen
Jahren der Alkoholsucht 2001 in einem Hotelzimmer des
Best Western Plaza Hotels in Honolulu erhängte.

Echt tragisch, auf diesem Album hört man noch rein gar
nichts in seiner Stimme von Depressionen und Niederge-
schlagenheit.....

Damals wär's eine 6 gewesen, heute mit viel Goodwill
und Sympathie noch eine knappe 5.
