Album Review
Reviewed 2009-06-06 
Modern, high-energy Celtic music. Based in traditional roots but given a rock makeover. A big sound with a nicely urban feel. Lots of guitars, plus vocals and more traditional instruments such as bodhran, flute, whistle, fiddle. Talented bunch. A bit “local bar rough” but that adds to the appeal. The songs are all in the “telling a story” tradition of Ireland. Lots of tragedy and memories.

*1. Upbeat toe-tapper, fun and lively.
2. Rock jam w/lots of energy.
*3. Slow opening into fast jam w/a thread of the traditional.
*4. Mid/upbeat story song w/cool vocals.
5. Midtempo love gone wrong ballad.
6. Mid/upbeat rock jig w/a cool sound.
*7. Fast head nodder w/fun vocals & a catchy, fun sound.
8. Upbeat and rockin, w/some midtempo bits.
9. Mid/upbeat and lyricals.
*10. Fast & hard edged.
11. Mid/up whaling/shipwreck song.
12. Upbeat rock w/an edge.
*13. Mostly upbeat country Celtic.
