  7. Dec 05,  · The album opens with a bang and one of Ridgway's best songs, "Big Dumb Town". It paints a portrait of the worst sort of opportunist: someone who makes a profit off of selling firehoses to a city on fire. It wasn't a hit, but it sounds like a hit created by an ideal world (the grunge movement likely pushed it off the airways in the mid-late 90s).4/5(11).
  8. BLACK DIAMOND starts with more than a hint of bitterness as Ridgway rips into a young woman who's a little too smart for this "Big Dumb Town." But in the next song, "Gone The Distance," the bitterness, transforms into a wistful contemplative softness, where the pain is still evident, but now it is examined with a thoughtfulness instead of the "in your face" quality of the first song and this.
