Album Review
Reviewed 2003-04-04 
Lots of their trademark exquisite female harmonies, backed by a nice assembly of acoustic instruments (fiddles, flutes, guitars, bass, accordion, drum, & kantele (a Finnish zither-like instrument). Oh yeah, the singers are now a trio rather than a quartet.

*1. Slow & stately a capella.
*2. Sweet and mid-tempo.
3. Starts mid-tempo, gets faster & bigger.
*4. Fast percussion/vocals. A frantic kind of feel.
5. Slow, old-fashioned folk melody. Pretty.
*6. Crazy fast w/great work from the band. Fun.
7. Starts slow, gets more energy. Sort of dark.
*8. A catchy a capella down/mid tempo tune.
9. Nice instrumental. Starts fast, changes tempo.
10. Slow start, tempo changes w/a warm, melodic feel
11. Gentle strings and rich vocals. Lovely.
*12. Dramatic down/mid tempo a capella track.
