CD Reviews

Mixed Bag
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When it's good, it's VERY good -- I was wondering what "Amazing Grace" would sound like on Uillean, as opposed to Highland, bagpipes -- now I know and I am not disappointed (thanks in part to Eric Rigler's command of the "Irish" pipes)! That one piece made this album worth the price of admission. There are also a couple of traditional reels that are great too. However... the "strings" part gets to me. They are too much -- either over dramatic or just real boring -- for example, I was listening to this lamentable version of "Loch Lomond", and I was expecting a voice to break in at anytime and annouce, "Thank you for holding, someone will be with you shortly"! Elevator music!But I'd recommend it on the basis of Eric Rigler's solo Uillean pipe version of "Amazing Grace" alone. It's that good."
