EDITORS’ NOTES

Big Country’s 2013 comeback continues their tradition of charging anthems tinged with Celtic flourishes and irrepressible spirit. New vocalist Mike Peters yelps with gusto on tracks like the clamorous opener, “In a Broken Promise Land,” and the gnarled “Winter Fire,” channeling the wisdom and heart of late frontman Stuart Adamson. The raucous “The Journey” calls back to the band’s 1983 signature hit, “In a Big Country,” yet has an energy all its own, showing how bittersweet memories can result in moments of triumph.
