Format: Audio CD
A mixed bag, this album. Donnie Munro's penultimate with the band, and probably the one that got the most mainstream notice, spawning a couple of singles (neither of which got anywhere in the UK, at least) and several of their more catchy tunes in their live performances. The big sounds and lush production of "The Big Wheel" are evident here, though not yet grown to such outrageous proportions as in "Mara". The two singles, "Wonderful" and "The Greatest Flame", are deceptively simple melodies underpinned by sparkling instrumentation, and are guaranteed to raise goose-bumps. "Move a Mountain" is an epic, modern protest song in the tradition of "Protect and Survive", whilst "Ard" ("High") is the most thunderous Gaelic rock-out you can imagine.
Like "The Cutter and the Clan", this is an album with a social conscience, and like "Cutter", although the stories are inherently Scottish, they take a global perspective on the Scot's place in a struggling ecosystem - in one breath sounding a note of caution ("Move a Mountain" and the title track), in the next breath rejoicing ("Song of the Earth").
There are great songs on this album. Some of Runrig's greatest, in fact. Unfortunately there are a lot of average songs in between the great ones, and this is the only real weakness of the album. No *bad* tracks as such, just ones that it's easy to forget. Still, a worthy successor to "The Big Wheel", and one that did much to raise the profile of Runrig in the UK. And I defy anyone to listen to "The Greatest Flame" and not get the melody stuck in your head!

This is a wonderful album, with lots of excellent songs. I own six Runrig albums, and this is one of my favourites. The power of the writing and the singing is an axample ot many other bands. Great music!

This is a good Runrig album but not as strong as Searchlight both in quality and in the pace of the songs. Highlight is the wonderful "the greatest flame" (a slow ballad), similar to "Every River" in Searchlight album and nice also is the slow "Dream fields" but also some more movimented songs leave a good trace in my ears, such as "Move a mountain" and "song of the earth"
The title track and other few songs are weaker in my opinion and not worth a prolungated listening.
Somewhat also Donnie Munro voice doesn't sound as much strong or convinced as in other occasions.
Better than a 3, not a full 4 though.

This CD is slightly unusual for Runriq, songs like 'Wonderful' are perhaps moving of at a tangent to their normal fair of 'Pog aon oidche earraich '(which is amazing) and 'Forever eyes of blue '(also really good). Although this album has lost some of its direction, I think that most of the songs make up for it. Fans of the celtic songs will be especially pleased with the inclusion of 4 of them. All in all, a very good buy and a worthy addition to your Runriq collection.
