A Silver Anniversary of Solid Gold!

"While a 25th anniversary is known as a "silver" anniversary, the music on these two CDs is solid gold! True to their unwaivering spirit, the Wolfe Tones deliver another generous portion of human courage, faith and smiles on a silver platter. This album is like a seven-course meal, it's loaded with variety. You'll hear everything from slow, melodic ballads of struggle and strife to heartlifting and invigorating songs of steadfast rebellion. For dessert, some of the songs have been sweetened with an accordian, drums and electric guitar. The electric guitar in "Broad Black Brimmer" fits this moving song like a well-worn and comfortable shirt. It rocks, and rocks very well; The polka-like tempo of "Rock On Rockall" makes me want to sing and dance all night; and the light-hearted "Janie Mac I'm Nearly Forty" is one that those of us over 30 can certainly identify with. What a smile this song brings. There's just not enough room in this forum to describe the heart of each and every song on this album. It's a great sampling of the Wolfe Tones' tremendous ability to ford the gap of musical style with equal enthusiasm, ability and heart. When I play their music in my office at work (which is quite often), it's amazing how many colleagues suddenly feel the need to confer with me about this or that. If you're looking for some outstanding Irish folk music that really has something to say, you need to look no further than the Wolfe Tones and this album. A tip of the brimmer and a shot of Jack Daniels to the Wolfies! Up the Tones!!!!!!!!"
Another great Irish Rebel band.

"Excellent album. If you like this check out Shebeen, Eire Og, Jolly Beggarmen, Seanchai, Fenians, Spirit of Freedom, Spirit of 16, Irish Brigade, Pilgrims, Athenrye...there are so many great ones. I love it."
Lively yet sentimental

"They seem to capture a good bit of Irish frustration in some of their words, although it seems mostly for commercial appeasement. Nonetheless, this is a good collection, and one worth owning.
I feel badly for bobdog2002. He/she apparently prefers a completely different type of music given the other albums that he/she reviewed. I personally don't care where you're from, I find your political opinion distateful."
