  • Big Station, Alejandro Escovedo's eleventh studio album, picks up where his 2010 recording, Street Songs of Love, left off. Once more produced by Tony Visconti, it contains 11 originals -- most co-written with Chuck Prophet. Most of these tracks are uptempo rockers, with a scant few featuring his now-signature ballad style with horn- and string-laden arrangements. Topically, he addresses everything from his own decline and disillusionment with his longtime residence Austin, Texas in "Bottom of the World," the Mexican drug wars ("Sally Was a Cop"), and even offers a pop number in "Party People."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.67) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Escovedo nods to his forebears here....'Bottom of the World' and 'San Antonio Rain' echo 'Queen Jane Approximately' and 'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues'..."

Q (Magazine) (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Escovedo can lay claim to being one of the most underrated storytellers of our times."
