||Well done Bruce!|
Well done Bruce - you've won me back! A very good album. Let's speak no further about that 'Big Swing Face' thing...in fact, let's just pretend it didn't happen. This is a solid album with some great tunes!

|Enjoyed This One...|
Like the fellow Aussie whose review appears before mine, I also didn't like "Big Swing Face" as much as anything else. Not enough of the old Baldwin Grand for my liking!! Despite this I still remain a loyal fan and can't wait until I can afford to order the "Intersections" set and the "Ricky Skaggs" duo album.

||Good New Material|
Its good to have Bruce Hornsby back with very impressive new material. Eighteen years of recording have obviously paid off and this new album is to me as good as any of his material from the late eighties. A very good supporting cast of musicians backs Bruce up such as Sting, Elton John, and Eric Clapton.

||Big Swings Big Brother|
After hearing this album, it sounds like what Big Swing Face "coulda" been. It has a good mixture of different sounds. I guess the word is "fusion". "Changes" and "Mirror" are my favorites. I did the math the other and realized that I have been listening to Hornsby for 18!!! years now :-O and what I really like about him is that he seems to just really enjoy doing what he does. He doesn't have to be on the top of the charts or anything, he just plays his music. Interestingly enough, his music has NEVER been easy to catagorize, or pigeon hole. It's just music. You either like it or you don't. Good album overall.

||Bring it home Bruce!|
Bruce takes his loyal following back to the late 80's days of "The Way It Is" and "Scenes From The Southside". "Gonna Be Some Changes Made" and "Mirror On The Wall" are catchy radio hits in waiting. The vocal support from Sting on "Gonna..." and Halcyon Days is excellent and the truly dreamy Dreamland, with Elton John contributing vocals is touching. Eric Clapton weaves his guitar magic on numerous tracks. "Hooray for Tom" is my personal favorite as it represents the values that were more prevelant is school children in years past... being happy for others who succeed, yet striving to one day be recognized for your own successes. Bruce's vocals and piano led tunes are a must listen.
