Overview

Without the Aid of a Safety Net captures a live concert Big Country performed in December of 1993 at the Barrowlands in Glasgow, Scotland. For many observers, the band was well past its prime by this point, but for dedicated fans the first half of the disc is a treasure, showcasing the band in a stripped-down, acoustic setting. The second half is all electric, and while it sounds professional, it doesn't have the spark of other live releases in the band's catalog.

Contrary to the main review of this CD, this is by far the best Big Country live album you can buy. If anyone viewed them as past their prime, this CD should change their view. While the first half is an acoustic set that highlights there musical and songwriting abilities over the years, the harder core electric set should solidify their place as one of the best and most underated rock bands this world has known. The crunching guitars of Steeltown, the prolific lead guitar playing on Ships and Long Way Home lets you know that this isn't the same band that brought you "In a Big Country". Stuart Adamson's voice as beautiful as ever even on the harder tunes. The sound quality is very good, better than the newer live CD "Come up Screaming" which is a more up to date live version of their musical career. The only disappointment you will have is that Stuart Adamson isn't around anymore to rock our world.
