Big Country's 'The Crossing' is the debut album every musician wishes for. It is a fantastic trip through their powerful and unique sounds, created by heavily engineered guitar playing, which sounds like bagpipes. 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 feels just straightforward, but the essence is deep and thoughtful. That is why the heart of this album is in the song writing and guitar play of frontman Stuart Adamson. All over it is one of the best debuts in popular music history, truly unique during the time of release.
