Album Review

The selections on the mid-priced 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection: The Best of Big Country are mostly duplicates of The Best of Big Country, but there are a couple tracks not on that more extensive compilation, including a rare Jimmy Iovine remix of "All Fall Together." The fact that Big Country was a one-hit wonder in the U.S. makes this release's audience somewhat uncertain; chances are that if you're interested enough in Big Country to purchase a best-of compilation, you'll want the more generous one. But The Millennium Collection does feature all of Big Country's big British hits, and it may be a worthy alternative for those who will be satisfied with a brief overview of the band's career.
