Eleven songs that move your heart with their simplicity, honesty and beauty. Love the way these five talented musicians (with the help of Bob Dylan) mixed folk, country, rock and soul music and have come up with this magic and, in my opinion, revolutionary album. One of my favorite of all time.

Best Songs: "The Weight", "Tears of Rage", "I Shall Be Released"

Underrated ones: "We Can Talk", "Caledonia Mission", "Long Black Veil"

Trovo che in questo disco ci sia una grande differenza qualitativa tra i pezzi maggiori ( "The weight", "I shall be released" ) e la maggior parte degli altri. Rimane comunque un esordio da ricordare, non fosse altro che per ciò che la Band ha rappresentato.

Pales in comparison to their self-titled masterpiece, but is still a collection of excellent songs.

Beautiful album, you can feel the friendship, the love and the sadness that these guys felt at the time. The album itself it's like a capsule, where the exterior simply doesn´t exist, and the only thing that exist it's the music of the album. From beginning to end a masterpiece.

From TheHutts
While it’s not surprising, given that The Band had spent years under the tuition of Ronnie Hawkins and Dylan, Big Pink is still one of the most assured and ephocal debut albums in the history of popular music.

The Band's debut album is an Americana classic. Great songs beautifully played with no pretension or bombast. There is such heart to these songs, it really is the kind of music that seeps into your soul. There are some fantastic songs in, tears of rage, long black veil, and, I shall be released, but best of all is, the weight, surely The Band's greatest song. A great album.

I liked It Shall Be Released and The Weight, the rest was pretty average for me.

I'll never get enough of this. One day I'll make a pilgrimage to Woodstock and pay my respects; not to the big stage, but to the woods that inspired these timeless songs.

It begins better than how it goes ending, and it's easy to recognize the best songs from this work, plus the album it's all made for the music of those times. Actually, I expectorad more from The Band, specially because the first song I ever heard of them was "The Weight" which is easily a masterpiece, the absolute great one. The Band shows here a beautiful compilation of songs that centralize on sound danceble, realist, and emotionally strong.
9.2/10

Best song: The Weight
Worst song: Chest Fever
