    What is most draws attention during the listening of the album "Big Station" are extended to the fore, interesting guitar parts and highlighted backing vocals - which is shown even in the works: "Man Of The World" or the slightly more subdued "Sally Was A Cop "- where special attention should be paid to the text lyrics. A very decent album - both in terms of melody and content.

    Although I admit that if you listen to The Rolling Stones, I'll pick Gimme Shelter, Emotional Rescue, Heaven, and similar ballads over other songs, I do like Escovedo for the same reason many other critics like him.

    What raises Big Station above the ordinary is the ease with which Escovedo explores his place in the world, whether through love's hard fought redemption or life's barrel-scraping moments. [Aug 2012, p.97]

    Occasionally cliched and often anthemic, this is an old-fashioned populist rock record that grows steadily with repeated listening. [No.89 p.53]

    If the songs don't always transcend their references, they rarely feel less than lived.
