I think this has become my favourite Clannad album. It shows a mature band at the height of their powers, with an unrivalled feel for their material, just before they ventured off into commercialism. I believe it's the first album with 'Enya' (Eithne) on board; it's also the last to feature traditional songs exclusively. Coincidence?

Of course, it wouldn't be entirely fair to blame Enya. Still, it must be a little bit gutting to be Maire Ni Bhraonain. She's far more talented than her younger sister: has one of the most beautiful and distinctive voices in popular music, the very sound of Celtic Twilight, and is a pretty good harpist too. With the two taking lead vocal on different tracks here, without the thick production wash of their later sound, you can hear clearly how much superior Maire is. Yet Enya is the one who has gone on to stardom (even if she is also a byword for naffness); 'Moya' has been reduced to anglicising her name in imitation.

All the more reason, maybe, to enjoy her superb performances here. Brother Ciaran, too, is on top of his game as arranger, with a sophisticated understanding of harmonies and a good instinct for not overdoing it; but I'm just as happy to hear Maire's completely solo rendition of An Bunnan Bui. It's all too short - only about half an hour - but with songs like Last Rose of Summer and the title track, it is at times breathtakingly beautiful.

The later Clannad seems schmaltzy and soulless to me - a kind of high-gloss, Michael Flatley version of themselves, altogether to self-conscious. This album on the other hand has genuine integrity and soul. It's simply beautifully played rootsy folk devoid of pretence. Naive and beautiful.

The later Clannad albums, notably Banba, are very "Enya" - much synthesizer and ghostly-sounding female vocals. This album is so old I bought it on tape, and is more folksy, acoustic and even cheeky than any Clannad song that's hit the charts. (There's a similar album, the name of which eludes me, where one of the boys sings a kind of Irish rock'n'roll song. Unthinkable!)

With a playing time of 32 minutes and being the quitest of any Clannad album, it is easy to overlook Crann Ull, their fourth studio album. Which would be a shame, as this is truly refined and beautiful music with an intimate, almost magic atmosphere all of its own. There is a new emotional depth to Maire's voice, and brother Ciaran's acoustic bass sings of long, warm summer evenings in the countryside... With its subtle introduction of electric keyboards, Crann Ull marked the first step in a direction that would soon define a whole new Clannad sound.
