This Is the Sea is the third The Waterboys album, and the last of their "Big Music" albums. Considered by critics to be the finest album of their early rock-oriented sound, described as "epic" and "a defining moment", it was the first Waterboys album to enter the United Kingdom charts, peaking at number 37. Steve Wickham makes his Waterboys recording debut playing violin on 'The Pan Within' and subsequently joined the band, appearing on the video of "The Whole of the Moon".
This is the Sea is an album of ‘Big Music’, a term used by frontman and songwriter Mike Scott to describe the depth and space he hoped to capture in each and every track on the album. The expansive majesty of the album all began in Mike Scott’s ‘book of shadows’, a book used by witches to record spells and rituals. But though This Is The Sea is a modern record born of wonder at what surrounds us, it employs a vocabulary that is at times antiquated – never twee, however – and calls upon writers that inspired Scott such as Yeats and Blake, Keats and . Lewis, Burns and Joyce.
Now if you're feelin' weary If you've been alone too long Maybe you've been suffering from A few too many Plans that have gone wrong And you're trying to remember How fine your life used to be Running around banging your drum Like it's 1973 Well that was the river This is the sea! Wooo! Now you say you've got trouble You say you've got pain You say've got nothing left to believe in Nothing to hold on to Nothing to trust Nothing but chains You've been scouring your conscience Raking through your memories Scouring your conscience Raking through . .

I have listened to "This is the Sea" over and over because I thought I needed to understand what it meant. This is the album to speak to that part of you. WARNING, though - after listening, you might just find yourself a little discontent with the office and may even be tempted to run away to Ireland where melancholy and passion are more normal.
The Waterboys were a British group formed in London in 1981 by Mike Scott (guitar/vocals) and Anthony Thistlewaite (t). They later added Karl Wallinger (guitar, keyboards) Steve Wickham (fiddle) and Kevin Wilkinson (drums). The year after "The Whole Of The Moon" was released, Wallinger left the band to form World Party, who had a US hit with "Ship Of Fools. This was the only song that was not mostly finished when The Waterboys started recording their third album, This Is The Sea. Mike Scott wrote in the liner notes: "That song, begun with a scribble on the back of an envelope on a wintery New York street, was finally completed in May 1985 in a London studio, when the verse containing "unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers" was added. The female singer who comes in around the 2:40 mark is Max Edie.

However, what best captured the band’s so-called big sound was This Is the Sea, the third album. Even Scott himself has described it fondly and proudly as the record on which I achieved all my youthful musical ambition. he final, fully realised expression of the early Waterboys sound. Released on September 16th 1985, This Is the Sea is indeed The Waterboys’ ultimate musical masterpiece, especially if Scott’s grand vision is to be arrangements, extensive instrumentation, a balance between Folk and Rock influences, and rich literary and traditional references
