Memorable recording from new voice on folk scene
Gwen A Orel | 08/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anam are a great new voice, or rather, two new voices in Irish/Scottish Folk Music because the vocals and harmonies of Aimee Leonard and Brian O'Headhra are delightful. The accompanying players, Treasa Harkin on box and Neil Davey on mandolin & bouzouki are distinctive and memorable. O'Headhra's guitar rhythms are great and his original songs well written. Leonard does justice to two classics "Mary and the Soldier" ane "Westlin' Winds". The guest artistes are tasteful and even the percussion is effective and non intrusive. An excellent CD and often played at home and in the car."

"Once again I must chime in because it seems this CD is underrated-- I bought it in Dublin last year and listened to it over and over and over again. Their version of "Westlin' Winds" may be the best one on CD, and "This Time," one of their original tunes, is incredibly hummable and catchy. That will be on my "best of the year" tape, for sure. I disagree that the lyrics are disappointing-- they are not! they are simple, evocative and elegant. This group has it all-- vocal purity, instrumental versatility, and originality too. If you like Planxty or De Dannan you will like them too. I should add that I like the mellower side of De Dannan-- not that it needs to be slow, just that I get bored with long, driving reels that go on forever. So the upbeat quality of this album suits me to a t."
Terrific CD - a must!!

"This CD is an excellent mix of traditional Scottish/Irish and modern music!! The vocals are amazing!! This is a must to add to your CD collection! Probably one of the best Scottish/Irish music CDs! (And that's coming from a true Scot!)"
