Album Review
Reviewed 2008-03-27
Nice compilation of music. Lots of mandolin, fiddle, flute, bagpipe, zither, plus electric and acoustic guitars, synths, & percussion. And vocals. A nice variety of tempos and sounds. Check out especially:

1. Fem voices, mouth harp, strings. Down/midtempo, light, airy.
2. Upbeat and happy with a joyful exuberance.
4. Downtempo, a contemporary sound w/great growly male vox.
6. Starts quiet then cool snarly fem vocals then a chorus. Down/mid.
9. Bouncy mouth harp, toe-tapping perc, bagpipes. Lots of fun, energy.
10. Upbeat male vox/chorus. A total drinking song sound. Pass the ale
11. Down/midtempo flutes, strings, drone. Male vox. Dark & cool.
12. Too short (only :52) male vox/drums. Midtempo round song.
13. Midtempo flutes/strings, a slightly medieval sound, cool vocals.
15. Accordion/perc, mostly midtempo w/bouncy vocals.
16. Upbeat & happy with bright vocals & a toe-tapping melody.
