Reworked Capercaillie songs, original versions were better
Christopher Culver | 11/24/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"CAPERCAILLIE, a self-titled disc, is a set of remixed and reworked songs, mostly from SECRET PEOPLE (which is, for some strange reason, getting hard to find).Most of the songs give an even greater showcase of Capercaillie's singer Karen Matheson but, to tell the truth, the original versions are better. Giving songs like "Alisdair Mhic Cholla Ghasda" an afro-sounding beat might make them hip and modern, but the remixing takes away from the traditional nature of Capercaillie's repetoire. Because a lot of the tracks of SECRET PEOPLE were already pretty contempory-sounding, a few songs like "Bonaparte" and "The Miracle of Being" aren't very different from the originals. But nonetheless, I would encourage anyone to pick up SECRET PEOPLE (or any other Capercaillie album) before listening to this interesting, though uninspired, diversion."
