Wonderful Celtic CD - love the music!
Scottish Highlands classic
(5 out of 5 stars)
"During a 1998 visit to Scotland, I was taken with the lush voice of the lead singer who's songs seemed to grace every establishment I entered. After no less than six days of running into "Four Stone Walls" I asked the name of the recording, as I knew that the music enjoyed by so many was going to be a part of my personal library. An artist in a candle shop at Traquair House brought out a well-worn copy of the CD, and said, "Secret People" and explained to this Yank' that this music inspired his work. The sound of the islands of Scotland is contained in nearly an hour music, and exemplifies the proud and romantic essence of an outwardly practical people. Some of the tracks use synthesizer to recreate the mood of the modern landscape of the Highlands, with success. Percussion is used to express the contemporary world, with impressions and images of day-to-day life. We all seek and listen to music that inspires and celebrates us in this life. "Secret People" is a classic because the artists in Capercaillie have succeeded in fulfilling both these categories."
Capercaillie does it again.

"There's a lot of Celtic music out there, and sometimes it's hard to decide which of the myriad artists are the ones to purchase and listen to. After a half-dozen friends all started recommending Capercaillie, I picked up Secret People and gave it a try. Well, I wasn't disappointed -- every track on this disc, in its own way, shines through with a lyrical beauty and a musical power that is difficult to find anywhere else. Capercaillie continues mixing tradition ("Hi Rim Bo", "Seice Ruairidh", among others) with their own spin and abilities, as well as their own songs, to create an album that is just a great experience for an hour at a time."
