CD Reviews

A fabulous swansong
Natalie Mills | Reservoir, VIC, Australia | 12/15/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Martin Walkyier's final album with Skyclad is an excellent way to conclude this band's catalogue of releases. I've loved Walkyier's work since Sabbat's absolutely brilliant albums 'History of a Time to Come' and 'Dreamweaver' (so impressive I wrote a thesis on it and its inspiration, Brian Bates's book 'The Way of Wyrd'), and he remains one of the finest and cleverest lyricists I've ever come across. 'Folkemon' is in my opinion the strongest Skyclad release, well produced and performed, and alternately biting, fun and insightful...and very addictive. I came close to overplaying it when I first bought it. My favourite tracks would be the opening 'The Great Brain Robbery' (I'm always up for some well written vitriol about the dumbing down of society), the fun and folk-thrash-danceable 'Polkageist', and 'The Disenchanted Forest'. And on a possibly irrelevant note, I really like the cover art on this album. It's very cool. I highly recommend this album, and wait impatiently for Walkyier's next venture."
Loyal to their art and fans

"This is Skyclad's 10th full length studio album (not counting EPs, singles, the '96 best of, and appearances on tribute albums). And I can honestly say that EVERYTHING THIS BAND PUTS OUT IS TOP-NOTCH. I like alot of performers, but this is exclusively the ONLY group I would praise this highly.I was a huge fan of the vocalist Martin Walkyier's band Sabbat back in the late '80s. But in '91, when he joined up with Steve Ramsey and Graeme English, things got a whole lot better. These guys write and play music worthy of Martin's first-rate lyrics. And NEVER since has their progression taken a wrong turn. "Folkemon" is a prime example of that."
