AllMusic Review by

This CD single is from Big Country's 1995 album Why the Long Face. "You Dreamer" is a sadly overlooked song. The single includes three previously unreleased songs including "Ice Cream Smile" and "Magic in Your Eyes" (both from the Riverside Tapes) and "Bianca" (Home in the Woods Tapes). All three are superior to most of the songs on Why the Long Face! Especially recommended to Big Country fans who were lukewarm to Why the Long Face. You Dreamer was also released in digipack form with three other B-sides: "I'm Eighteen" (Alice Cooper), "Vicious" (Lou Reed), and "On the Road Again" (sung by Tony Butler).
