"Many, if not most, recordings of large Scottish pipe and drum music, seem to ignore the bass drum. Not so this recording. The sound of the musicians is crisp and clear and uncommonly well balanced. The ensemble seems to be at a distance allowing some space, meaning slight echo and full atmosphere. (It is also recorded a tad low, requiring a modest increase in my stereo volume.) While the performance lacks a little pizzazz or flair, the selections are excellent, not the old war horses, but Amazing Grace is there and it is top-notch. All in all, the CD is well-done, worthy of the band's Grade 1 & 2 ranking. Presently, this CD is best of the heap of pipe bands in my collection, and I am glad to own it."
