Unlike their "new age" synth stuff, this is a music of traditional Irish songs, performed on authentic instruments - and its incredible to listen too. Beautiful, moving.. the only down side (if you can call it that) is that the music here is quite moody, and often has a sad or depressing feel to it. I cannot reccomend this highly enough, although you might prefer to buy "An Diolam", which has most the songs on here and is a cheaper collection of Clannads early acoustic output.

Traditional Celtic music in it's purest form! 20 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Clannad's music nowadays ahs much rock and pop music, but in this early album, Clannad did traditional music in it's purest form. The music formed a Celtic atmosphere that did not sound at all like a studio recording. It sounded like traditional music from the far countryside of Ireland. The instruments, such as the harp, whistle, and guitar, freely played and expressed the music. The Celtic feeling touched the soul! It created various moods, like the cheerfulness of "Rince Philib a'Cheoil", the mysteries of love in "Coinleach Ghlas An Fhomar" and "By Chance It Was", and the suspence of "Rince Briotanach" and "Fairly Shot of Her". The music developed a very natural Celtic setting and mood. Maire's wonderful voice strongly emphasized the Gaelic words and Celtic voice, especially in "Coinleach Ghlas An Fhomair" (which is different from the version of Magical Ring). What more can I say? This music is Celtic music in it's purest form and it transports the listener all the way to Ireland!

Clannad 2 5 Dec. 1999
By Kate Bronson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Clannad, over the years, has changed alot as a band. They've done alot, and been together a long time. One thing that hasn't changed is their integrity, and that goes for their second ever released album, Clannad2. This album has some of the first signs of their experimentation with jazz and rock into the Irish traditional, and a passion in many of the performances that is incredible. It is a favourite of mine because of their integrity and skill, in spite of this being so early in their career. The arrangements of the pieces(which are all traditional) are fresh and full, especially for the time period(mid '70s) They helped plow the way for many other artists coming out of Ireland, such as Altan, Moving Hearts, and U2 with their "fusion" sound. This album comes highly recommended.

Excellent Celtic vocals and musicianship! 24 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is early Clannad, from their Celtic, peppy period. Awesome; I'd forgotten how good they can sound!! The vocals work well together -- mellow yet energizing. This and others of their early albums are well worth the seeking out!

Donegal Rocks! 8 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Superb album from pre 'Harry's Game' period when group were a more 'Traditional' outfit, but still with modern arrangements Double Bass etc. Great vocals from Máire and playing all around.
Timeless classic 2 Dec. 2012
By SerenaBlackCat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I agree that this album displays raw talent that is passionate, yet also seems unassuming and effortless. This family (I think everyone in this lineup is family) is so talented, and somehow listening to this album makes me feel like they could have just played it in their living room after just waking up. There are lots of lively, cheery, memorable songs, like Rince Philib A'Cheoil and also some slow, haunting melodies like Chuaigh Me Na Rosann. Moya Brennan's vocals here are less ethereal and refined, giving them a more intimate quality. The male vocals on Dheanainn Sugradh were very regional-sounding, and the song has a rocking-out section in the middle which sounds comical but also great. The use of instruments on this album is also excellent and diverse, with most of the instruments being acoustic and no synthesizers (they went on to combine synth with traditional instruments). This is a beautiful album I would recommend to anyone who says they like Irish music. This is Irish music before it was cool...and the music that helped bring it to the mainstream.
