It took a while, but album is proving a grower. Stripped of all the fancy production of the last two studio albums ( Amazing Things and Mara) ISOA is really quite refreshing. New singer Bruce Guthro really shines with some stunning vocals, mainly on " The Message" and "This is not a love Song". Fans who have left following the departure of Donnie Munroe, should really give this a go. Several tracks are amoung the best they have ever recorded. "May Morning" is a wonderful opener while "The Message" is perhaps the most inventive and adventurous song Runrig have yet recorded, it has a beat to die for!! Other standout tracks include "Big Sky", "This is not a Love Song" and "Travellers". This album is similar to Searchlight ten years ago, as in it's a great collection of songs, rather then an album with a central theme (like Mara). With the promise of Bruce Guthro ( a real talent, well worth the wait for) leading a hand to the writing of the next album, Runrig could become a force to reackon with again. In the mean time, they are still one of the best band you will ever see. Buy this album and catch them live if you can.

Runrig's first album with new front-man Bruce Guthro, and as the first track, 'May morning' breaks, (one of those songs that instantly makes you feel great to be alive!) you can’t help but to love this guys voice & style.
Even though Bruce is Canadian, in search of angels still has a very Scottish feel to it, with the usual mix of songs in English & Gaelic (Cho Buidhe... being one of my favourite Gaelic tracks) as well as the old midi bagpipes used to good effect!
It does have a slightly more simplistic feel to it than other runrig albums, especially in songs such as 'Life is hard' & 'This is not a love song' as well as 'In search of angels'. simple, yet beautifully effective, and I'm not sure that's such a bad thing, as it kind of starts Bruce off on a fresh slate.
Although Donnie was a hard act to follow, I don't think any fans will be disappointed.

Inevitably comparisons will be drawn between new boy Bruce Guthro and old boy Donnie Munro. I did, and you will. That said, Bruce Guthro is a real find and this is a strong album. In many ways a return to their roots, the band is in fine fettle, with a welcome return to their Celtic influences. Yes, I know Bruce is Canadian, but that does not seem to have hampered his efforts to tackle the Gaelic language. Certain tracks are standout from the first listening, The Message is particularly powerful, whilst others require a few plays. The title track, In Search of Angels could well be destined to become a Runrig 'live' favourite, emotionally it pulls no punches, but then that has always been a Runrig song writing strength. There is a nice balance struck between the rockier numbers and the ballads. All in all, the band can be well pleased with this effort. Runrig supporters both old and new should give this line-up a listen. Keep an open mind, give the new man a chance, remember, that was then, this is now, and the future looks full of promise!

If Runrig are one of your favourite bands then you are going to love this album.Even though Donny Munro is not singing on this album, his replacement still comes across very strong.
It has a mixture of Gaelic and Traditional sound's as you'd expect from Runrig. I've been a big fan of Runrig for many years and own lots of their Singles & Albums. This Album does to me like all the others do that I own get's my fingers and feet tapping.
Track 01: Maymorning and Track 004: Big Sky are strong and powerful. One thing you must do when listening to Runrig turn up the volume and enjoy.

If you haven't seen runrig perform this album live yet, what are you waiting for. I mean this album is by far one of the best they have done so far with the new lead singer, Bruce guthro who they took almost two years out searching for. This album is a remarkable comeback for runrig, restoring all the great techniques used by Callum and Rory in their song writing, big sky especially. This album is a real must have and if you are not a runrig fan then you don't know what you are missing. This band simply rock and I wouldn't be surprised if Callum and Rory were ever voted two of the best songwriters in Rock history. I mean this album is a must have, and so is all the other albums too. get out there and buy them.

Format: Audio CD
Runrig's first album after the departure of Donnie Munro doesn't quite have the confidence or the "wow-factor" of sequel The Stamping Ground. Alone of the dozen or so Runrig albums I own, this seems to be the one whose songs I don't quite remember. In some ways this is probably the Gaelic folk-rock equivalent of a "chillout" album, and it's truly heavenly for drifting off to sleep with, late at night; but the sharp, memorable melodies and potent social comment that made the early Runrig repertoire so unforgettable here are largely absent. Having said that, it's hard to find a flaw as such: Bruce Guthro fits into the niche left by the departing Donnie gently and competently, though without obviously making it his own ("The Stamping Ground" was the place for that), and the production is polished to perfection, with a few welcome modern touches (the keyboard/bagpipe intro to single "The Message" being a taste of things to come, perhaps?). But maybe that's my problem: it's a little TOO polished for me. I will however agree with all the other reviewers hear that "Big Sky" is a gem of a song, and one of Runrig's finest.
