I love this not because it's a great example of shantying, but that it's going to introduce to a whole new generation the tradition of singing these songs. On each track a single voice capably leads, with the rest of the group joining in on the choruses so the group accurately recreates the way the work songs were used onboard ships.

Now I don't know where the singers hail from but they're definitely north americans trying for that generic cod-celticishness that they delude themselves is at the heart of the tradition. The accompaniment is mostly flute, guitar and fiddle and they compliment the songs well enough.

The songs themselves are relatively short, so it does mean that the verses have been expunged of the coarser and more melancholy sentiments sailors songs are prone to. On the upside it does mean the various inventions of the 19th and 20th century song collectors are also avoided (yes I am looking at you "what Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor").

As a shanty singer myself I found these arrangements quite difficult to join in with, but don't let that put you off.
What is interesting is the two songs in spanish. I'm sure these songs have actual titles as 'Buleria'and 'Verdiales' refer to types of flamenco and spanish song. It's a bit like taking Elvis' back catalog and renaming each song as Rock and Roll.

If this is your first introduction to the sailors songs of the past then you are most welcome and I hope it sparks an interest in this artform. Heaven knows we need less bearded pensioners croaking these tracks like they were pantomime songs and more of the blood and fire of youth. For the older folkies and the shanty singers think of as a new way of embarrassing the grand-kids.

The first thing I’m going to say is I was a fan of the series until it seemed to turn into a perpetual cash cow. Nothing really wrong with that until you realize that the game didn’t really innovate and as time went on it simply stagnated for me as a series and got boring. I’m now going to be critical and say nothing about the ground game has changed. It still has a poor control scheme and the combat is awful. The auto correction in the controls that tries to guess what action you wanted to take doesn’t always work leading to durpy moments of you either jumping to your doom or running up the side of an object only to go nowhere. It’s annoying as hell and the mission variety is poor too. So why did I give the game such a good score? Well un like other Assassins games this one is set on the sea. There is its one redeeming and most enjoyable aspect of the game. The fact you can sail around upgrade your ship take on bigger and more powerful opponents makes the game feel less like an Assassins game and more of an enjoyable pirate sim. I must confess that I haven’t even finished the game yet as the main mission progression isn’t interesting to me at all. The fleet building and trading and sea combat, fort unlocking, fishing, diving and so many side quests have all kept me busy. This is where I have a slight issue with the game though it’s a great pirate sim but it’s not a great Assassins game. In fact I would have preferred they didn’t attach the Assassins moniker on to it at all. The reason I say this is because the Assassins elements of the game just bored me, they were the same old thing run here kill this guy, steal this thing and don’t get spotted when you’re following this dude. It got dull very quickly just like the other games in the franchise.Read more ›
