"I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands". Thus begins "The Whole Of The Moon", the song that just may be The Waterboys' most joyful, wonderful and lively song, five minutes worth of "big music" as Mike Scott called it, with a melody to die for and lyrics to swoon over. This is simply a perfect song in every respect. If for some mysterious reason you do not know it, look it up on the album This Is The Sea, the 1985 album that marked the end of the band's first trilogy of albums, signaling the end of their big music period.
