Lives for gear
The Big Music style was quite in vogue in the mid-80s.

‘The Unforgettable Fire’ by U2 (1984, produced by Brian Eno & Daniel Lanois)
‘Songs from the Big Chair’ by Tears for Fears(1985, produced by Chris Hughes)
‘Once Upon a Time’ by Simple Minds (1985, produced by Bob Clearmountain & Jimmy Iovine)
‘The Colour of Spring’ by Talk Talk (1986, produced by Tim Friese-Greene)

Can you talk a bit more about the use of reverbs & delays on ‘This is the Sea’?
Also, how does one turn a relatively simple song like ‘The Whole of the Moon’ into an anthem that’s still loved 22 years later.
