"I was never much of a fan of Irish traditional/folk music. I mainly liked Clannad for their later, 'new age' music. But I was given this album and, let me tell you, it rocks. The songs feature great musical arrangements, especially "Eirigh Is Cuir...Coiriu," my favorite fast song on the album. It's a really catchy song (I especially love the instrumental-only part of the song) that will get your feet tapping. The album also includes some beautiful, moving ballads, such as "Eirigh Suas a Stoirin," which feels like a soft mist descending and then rising. Those 2 songs alone make the album worth buying, but the other songs are great also. In fact, if I were more of a traditional-music fan to begin with, I would probably give the album 5 stars."

"As a child I used to sing the chorus of the song Dulaman whenever my mom played her LP version. I absolutely love this cd; this is Clannad at their best. Two Sisters is a a very popular song...it's just one version out of many different versions about a tale where the oldest sister pushes the youngest sister into the water just because of a man. Lorenna McKennitt has made a a version of this: The Bonny Swans. And after hearing the Two Sisters, Clannad's version is remarkably better. Give this cd a chance, you'll be glad you did."
