Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2011-02-14 
Canadian artist Loreena McKennitt sings traditional Irish & Scottish
music sculpted by her unique sound with guitar, Uilliann pipes, strings, percussion and a hurdy gurdy. On the album she revisits the music on her 1985 debut release "Elemental".

2: 5:09 slower, mellow vocal
****3: 3:51 mid tempo INSTRUMENTAL a nice march
4: 5:40 slow, beautiful vocal with cello & Uilliann pipes
5: 3:34 mid to faster vocal
***6: 6:01 slow vocal with hurdy gurdy drone then cello
7: 6:04 slow vocal
**8: 4:42 slow INSTRUMENTAL haunting sound with bowed strings, pipes & whistle
**9: 5:14 drone noodling intro then slow vocal with echo effect
