Album Review
Reviewed 2006-01-20
She’s the lead singer of Capercaillie, and has a voice like velvet. Acoustic traditional and contemporary songs in both English and Gaelic, backed by guest such as Donal Lunny and Donald Shaw (also from Capercaillie). I loved it all – you can play any track and not go wrong. It’s quiet and not at all flashy, but so beautiful. Why can’t I sing like that?

*1. Slow, delicate, sad. Absolutely gorgeous.
2. Midtempo & jazzy then upbeat & kinda bluegrassy. Fun!
*3. Deliciously sweet, nostalgic ballad. Nice pipes too.
4. Slow pop folk w/lots of strings.
*5. Light w/tripping fast vocals, then catchy mid/uptempo jam.
6. Lazy and sweet blend of vocals/strings. Very pretty.
*7. Nice perc driving this mid/uptempo dance. Cool sound.
8. Sweet, delicate love song.
*9. Nicely toe-tapping w/cool vocals. Gets faster.
10. Midtempo w/banjo accents & violins.
11. Heartbreaking ballad. Slow, sad, so beautiful. I need a tissue.
