Big Sky.. interesting choice of song from that album. It's awesome, but I'd put Days, Do You Remember Walter, Johnny Thunder, Mr Songbird, Animal Farm, Picture Book, Village Green, Village Green Preservation Society, People Take Pictures Of Each Other, All Of My Friends Were There, Starstruck, Last of the Steam-Powered Trains all ahead of it. Wow, I just named 12 songs that would be the highlight of most bands' careers, and they can all be found on one album.

I urge everyone to get a hold of this album somehow, it's amazing.

Make sure you find all the songs though... the 15-track UK version leaves off Days and Mr Songbird, two of the very best songs Ray Davies ever wrote, and the 12-track US version leaves out 5 songs including "Big Sky" itself.
