The best of Runrig to date.

"The old flair of history, passion and rock come together in this trip from the Higllands to the sea. This is a gentile dose of Runrig with more of a folk feel that rock. Worth having in your collection if you enjoy a rock and roll feel to your celtic music."
A complete emotional roller-coaster, tears of joy, tears of

"It never lets go - from the off it grabs you by the eyeballs and by the hairs on the back of your neck. I defy anyone not to be moved by the word and music paintings on offer here. Espescially the most quiet and spine tingling song ever by this band of constant surprise. If you listen while driving - watch your speed!! You will drift over that limit with no consciousness.Buy it - be transported to the silver sands, the seagulls, the waves - the tranquillity of Western Scotland."
Not their best, but -WELL- worth the purchase

"Although this album was not as fast-paced as what I've come to expect of Runrig, it is still worth purchasing. These songs are more sad than passionate but they are grand, nonetheless. My brother (Lowell) introduced me to this genre of music in '89 and I've bought everything I could since. I've yet to be disappointed, even through 14 albums. **WARNING** Expect to change the way you look at Scottish history."
