CD Reviews

A mystical blend of Irish reels, airs and melodies.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great album. Don't mix this up with your usual Irish instrumentals (as good as they are), this is a truly magical mix of pipes (care of Davy Spillane), low whistles and percussion that, after more than 100 plays, still leaves me wanting more. Fantastic to listen to on a balmy summer evening, the b-b-q coals crackling and a cool glass of beer in your hand.Although only six songs on the album, the first song (the Lark) lasts over 14 minutes. It never bores, changing tempo seven times throughout its meandering length. Tribute to Paedar O'Donnell is my own favourite, starting with Davy's opening ballad on the pipes, and building to a rythmical beat that finishes all too soon (despite being over 7 minutes long).Now disbanded, this was perhaps the concept album that gave Moving Hearts the freedom to do what they do best. I heartily recommend this, whether you are a fan of Irish music or not. Buy it as a matter of urgency. The CD cover alone is worth the investment"
THIS IS NOT YOUR USUAL DIDDLE DE I IRISH MUSIC.

"Where can I start to review to my mind the greatest contemporary traditional Irish album of all time,Firstly the Lark is 14 minutes long but dont let this put you off,it is the most innovative piece of music your ever likely to hear in an Irish sense,this particular track is made up of 7 different pieces all incorporated into a continious rampage of Uillean pipes(Davy Spillane)Saxaphone(Keith Donald)Bozouki(Donal Lunny)Bass Guitar(Eoin o Neill)Drums and Percussion (Matt Kelligan&Noel Eccles).To say these musicians are the greatest Ireland ever produced is almost an understatement,Titanic track 2 features Keith Donald in particular on fire as he blasts some fine music from his Sax.Track 3 the title track again features similar explosions from each member contributing their own memorable pieces,track4 Tribute to Peadar O Donnell is another 9 minute masterpiece,finally the hauntingly beauitiful May Morning Dew would make any strong man cry,the emotion in Davy Spillanes playing has never been matched by any other piper to my knowledge,all in all this album first recorded back in the late 80s has stood the test of time,and in my opinion is the album which prompted the success of Riverdance,Buy this album cherish it listen without doubt to a collectors item,there likes will not be seen again."
Just plain awesome!!

"I agree, buy it as a matter of urgency. It really is that good! It is just spellbinding. This is progressive celtic music at its finest. I think there is even some saxaphone carefully woven into a track or two. 'Nuff said."
