5.0 out of 5 stars Bagpipe Funk at its Finest 5 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Heard two tracks on the BBC, and was hooked. Peatbog Faeries produce a truly infectious, pumping sound of pipes and whistles and electric goodies, with a fine bass and percussion background to keep things moving. I prefer the faster-paced stuff on Faerie Stories over their earlier album, and indeed I think this cd is perhaps the best in the genre- Celtic-techno-funk or whatever it should be called! Rolling down one's windows in South Mississippi with booming roiling bagpipes is also a great thrill (surpisingly, this sort of music is rarely heard down here...)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great second album. 10 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Especially following the dramas in getting it released...

I actually have BOTH versions, as I bought the small pressing the band had made while they were between record companies, as well as the 'official' release.

More dancy than Mellowosity, but still with that solid folk roots under there.

Still loving it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Outer Hebridean Adrenilin" 7 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album along with all the other Peatbog Faeries masterpieces allows the individual to fall into an imaginary dream world of highland mists, pure white sands, happy island people, vast open spaces and the beautiful birthplace and homeland of Flora MacDonad. Having had the pleasure of seeing this group playing live, having the honour of being present when such fantasticly talented musicians are bringing to life a wonderful Gaelic atmosphere directly into my home, can only be compared with the overwhelming thrill of a win on the lottery. The haunting sounds of the flute, the "skirl o' the pipes leaves the individual in no doubt that what they are listening to is coming directly from the Gaelic heartland, from musicians who care about what they produce, every offering an absolute gem

5.0 out of 5 stars Techno-Folk at its best 1 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being very new to celtic folk music, (I didn't know that I liked it until last month), I saw the Faeries live at Cambridge Folk Festival and was blown away by them. Consequently I bought the CD. The opening two tracks are tracks that will have anyones feet tapping. The rest is of a slower tempo but is great chill-out music. By the way - my favourite bands are Kiss & Rush so this is not just for 'Folkies'

Who would have thought that a band based on the Isle of Skye in Scotland would come up with such a funky, cool sound which would not sound out of place in a New York City club. This CD is smoooth, but Peatbog Faeries are even better live - the atmosphere at their gigs is da bomb!

4.0 out of 5 stars A little gem. 4 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not my usual fare but I like this CD a lot. I thought that i might like one or two tracks but was very surprised that i have enjoyed listening to this CD over and over again. I had only heard of Peatbog Faeries after stumbling over a Scottish programme on Freesat where they were featured. Well worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
This will appeal, I would imagine, to young clubbers as much as to folk fans. The Celtic fusion has an almost, at times, dub or club (? Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars An Acquired Taste?
Faerie Stories. An acquired taste. Ow to describe? Not strictly folk music as many would define it. A cross between Folk and 1970's progressive Rock? Read more

I went to see this group live at Snape and they brought the house down. This CD is brilliant and makes me want to dance all over again.
