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.

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.

From GandalfORiley345 02/23/2015 22:18
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

The Weight, Long Black Veil, and I Shall Be Released are great tracks that I love. The rest of it I could pretty much take or leave. I think as a whole this album is kind of overrated.

Really good album. Had some very weak songs, but also amazing songs, not just "The Weight" which could be one of my personal favorites.

"The Weight" is fantastic, as everyone seems to agree, and there are some other great songs here, but the vocals are quite poor in some parts and detract from the quality of the album.
