Clannad has been a childhood favorite of mine. In the spirit of that old fondness I purchased this collection of the best of Clannad. When Clannad is good, the music grips you and whisks you away to ancient times. Some of the finest songs from Clannad are here, from the classics "I will find you" and "Robin" to my personal favorites "In a lifetime", "Caislean Oir" and "Saltwater". Most of these songs can be found on other albums, so if you intend to get any, or all, of those, don't bother purchasing this one. In that sense, this album does not offer anything new, but for those who wish to learn what Clannad is all about, this is a good album to start with. Of the songs on this album, I had not heard "Rí na Cruinne" before and I quite liked it. Clannad's songs require some active listening. It's all too easy to put on the "mood music" and essentially fall asleep, which would be an injustice to the sensitive levels of these songs. I do recommend this album!
