2LP. In. Big Country's The Crossing is the debut album every musician wishes for. It's a fantastic trip through their powerful and unique sounds, created by heavily engineered guitar playing, which sounds like bagpipes. All over it's one of the best debuts in popular music history, truly unique during the time of release. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Insert with song lyrics and drawings. The richness of this album can be felt in their vibrant blend of traditional British Isles folk music and new wave. The grand themes of the lyrics feel just straightforward, but the essence is deep an thoughtful. That's why the heart of this album is in the songwriting and guitar play of frontman Stuart Adamson.
