Incredible, clever, over-joyous, happy-fit-inducing contemporary Celtic music. It’s Gaelic Storm and it’s so damn good! Almost everything is upbeat and super-cheerful, and there’s some expert playing here as well. These guys are talented, genuine, and just ridiculously fun to listen to.|
FCC clean! Start with track 11. Then listen to them all. Seriously.
*1. Upbeat jig about being Irish — sorta. Super catchy chorus.
2. Mid/up song about why the Irish don’t have a space program.
3. Mid-tempo, somewhat predictable (and repetitive) melody.
*4. Upbeat, kick-ass instrumental. It’s superbly played, but stay away if you’re averse to high-pitched fiddling and bagpiping.
5. Mid/up hand-clapper. “Green eyes, red hair, long legs. She’s got the Devil inside her.
”6. Mid-tempo, heavier melody with some heavier lyrics about running out of whiskey (it’s a travesty, for sure).
7. Mid/up sweet and feel-good round. Another well-played instrumental.
8. Mid/up cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Cecilia”. Surprisingly well-done, but an odd choice for Gaelic Storm.
9. Upbeat, full-on Celtic instrumental.
*10. Mid-tempo song about a mutiny. Slow and foreboding verses develop into a toe-tapping chorus as the ship is overthrown.
*11. Upbeat and oh so good. A song about rum runners during the U.S. Prohibition. Pleasant and joyous, with varied instrumentation.
12. Downbeat. The only truly slow track on the album. A nice contrast, but not all that remarkable.
*13. Upbeat. With a track title like “Crazy Eyes McGullicuddy” you can’t go wrong. Another superb, varied, hard-hitting instrumental.
14. Upbeat. A modern classic in the field of Irish drinking songs.
