  • Pretty Good.

    Overall the album is fairly good. They are at their best with instrumental songs. This was a nice attempt to include some great figures in music. The song Long Black Veil is one of the all time great Celtic songs. It is even one of the all time Mick Jagger songs - which is really saying something. Classic. Some songs are fairly boring. When it comes to The Chieftains, more upbeat songs are their more engaging. Many songs on this album are slower and more languid. Coast of Malabar, for instance, is a very well written song, but in practice it's a snoozer. The importance of The Chieftains to modern Celtic and even folk music cannot be understated. They are The Beatles of their genre. Bands like The Pogues and Gaelic Storm are who they are because of The Chieftains. Much like The Beatles, however, they were not perfect.
  • Best album ever!

    When I was in grade school in the early nineties, I used to Irish dance, and I remember picking out the most upbeat songs and making up a dance to them. I swear, I got chills when I listened to this album again. :P

  • A Must Have

    This album is incredible in it's depth and stellar cast. The Chieftains do some amazing collaborations on this album. The clear standouts are "The Foggy Dew" w/ Sinead O'Connor to start. Her vocals send chills down your spine transporting you to the scene of the Easter Uprising. The Dunmore Lassies is another standout for anyone who is a fan of slide guitar. Ry Cooder does another masterful collaboration by doing the slide work on this one. The Lily of the West is a wonderful story of a lover wronged, told by Mark Knopfler. The chorus is played by the Chieftains. There is a good version of "Have I Told You Lately" adding flutes, and pipes. "He Moved Through the Fair" is another great one.
