Background
At one point, I did own this on CD. In fact, I owned a heck of a lot of Christian rock CD's back in the day (I was gonna say hell of lot, but that just did't seem appropriate given the context.. lol), but Mylon just seemed to slip out the back of my CD collection one way or the other. How the hell heck did that happen? Out of all his discography, I do remember this one however. Mylon LeFevre's career goes way back into the mists of time. I'm not going to bother to get out the hair-dryer to blow away the cobwebs of the past, Google can do that for you, or some Christian rock site that obviously had nothing better to do. Try this Wikipedia site for starters. click here... You'll find that 1989 was a catalyst year for LeFevre, in terms of his personal health, but I really should't cover that, as it's the music that should be front and foremost, and 'Big World' delivers in spades!


The Songs
The title track 'Big World' is a big spacious introduction, with intricate keys and a cinematic entrance. Things come to life at the 1 min 30 sec mark, and about time too, as I thought this was gonna turn into a movie trailer! Lots of big secular sounding hard rock. This lot is not entirely consigned to the Church.. 'Love Comes Dow' is a jangly slice of AOR, catchy amidst the melodia on display. 'Falling In Love' reverts to a hybrid of southern rock and commercial rock, sort of like what Monty Byrom's Big House were all about. 'Face To Face' is about as close as you can get to Christian AOR without calling in the Patent Police! With a song title such as 'Jesus It's You', it's enough to run to the hills, and I nearly did! The synth chopper effects kick in early on 'Turn The Tables On Me'; not quite Aldo Nova, but the song rocks out regardless. So too, the boogie rock of 'Remember The Future', which I'm sure is quite the extravaganza in the live context. 'Let Love Conquer' has a heap of keyboard effects, while there's some stinging guitar solo work too. 'The Distance' is an up-tempo tune, that holds its metronome real well, while the closer 'Movi' O' finishes up as a ballad.


In Summary
It's a big sounding CCM album, no two ways about it! This is the sort of band that needs a bit of rediscovery. Go out and find a few of their CD's. Anything during the mid to late 80's, plus 1990's 'Crank It Up' are well worth the investigation.

Wasn't his 1986 album 'Look Up' released on a major label? Seems to me that was the band's name and a shot at the secular market. Mylon was a marketing machine back then, album, tour, album, tour - a rigorous schedule that would kill most young bands these days...
