The Big Area is the second album by English rock band Then Jerico, released in 1989. The album includes three singles which reached the UK top 40: "Big Area" (No. 13; the band's biggest single to date), "What Does It Take" (featuring backing vocals by Belinda Carlisle; No. 33) and "Sugar Box" (No. 22). The album reached No. 4 in the UK Albums Chart. All tracks written by Then Jerico (lyrics by Mark Shaw), except where noted. What Does It Take" (Sandy Stuart, David Munday).

The second - and, as far as most listeners were concerned, final - album from London's Then Jerico stands as the group's defining moment, containing their biggest hit (the rousing, synth-rocking title track) and best presentation, courtesy of former Roxy Music producer Rhett Davies. His polished, sweeping soundscapes match the band's anthemic songwriting well, even if they do remove some of the live excitement that was also a staple of Then Jerico's appeal

What Does It Take?, 03:49. Song for the Brokenhearted, 04:30. Where You Lie, 04:56.

As for the lows, there are less of them (the album clocks in at a reasonable 40 minutes), and Davies turns any potential problem spots - having Belinda Carlisle match Shaw warble for warble on "What Does It Take" probably wasn't the best idea - into very listenable, likeable arena rock. Not surprisingly, the album was very successful, although the group disbanded after touring behind it. Shaw later recruited a new Then Jerico lineup in the late 90's and released a third album, Orgasmaphobia.
