4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric, but a lost opportunity� 27 July 2004
By P. A. Murphy VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Maybe it's impossible for me to write a balanced review of this album, being as the music on it - and Robin Of Sherwood, the TV series it was written for - played such a important part in shaping my listening tastes as an adolescent way back in 1984/85. In my mind's eye, a gritty medieval world of sorcery, rampaging Normans and heroic derring-do are effortlessly conjured up by any of the tracks on this album.
That said, on the down side, it sounds dated in that way that Eighties studio production techniques did more so than say, those of the Seventies or even earlier. There's an over-reliance on milky washes of synth sound to convey a mystical, lost time when there are perfectly good medieval instruments that could have done the job more effectively - and the crisp, dry production so beloved of the time shows them up to great disadvantage.
However, Clannad were/are never about faithful reproduction of old folk/medieval/irish music. What you do get on this disc are beautiful, catchy tunes that managed to wrap themselves around the TV images to evoke a fanciful vision of Dark Age/Medieval England, with enough Eighties touches to keep a oft-told tale fresh and contemporary. And, like the series, the music has, on balance, held up well. Clannad were also canny enough to write self-contained, full-length pop songs, rather than musical cues and 'stings' for the TV series. This makes what is ostensibly a soundtrack album sound like a properly-rounded album of tunes rather than a series of disjointed, onomatapoeic cues inextricably linked to visual accompaniment. The music exists outside of the show perfectly well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clannard Legend 27 April 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When the Robin Hood series was launched in the 1980s I was captivated from the start. I particularly remember the haunting melodies which seemed to capture the spirit of adventure and magic so exactly. Now in my late 30s I recently bought this CD and have been enthralled anew. Listening to the tracks again brought the hairs up on the back of my neck and reminded me of the adventure and magic I had ambitions to include in my life back then. Some of you may be concerned about the use of synthesisers, but the feelings which the music evokes are timeless. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Runnin' Through the Forest 26 Jan 2006
By Craobh Rua VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Clannad are a family band made up of three siblings (the Brennans) and their two uncles (the Duggans). They grew up in Gaoth Dobhair, the Gaelteacht area of County Donegal that is also home to Altan. Enya, a sister, is also a former member - she featured on the band's 1982 release, "Fuaim".
"Legend" is the soundtrack to an old television series called "Robin of Sherwood", and it led to a BAFTA for the group. The show, which ran for three seasons, was based on the legends of Robin Hood and was first broadcast in 1984. (The album was forst released that same year). Michael Praed played Robin for the first two seasons, before moving to America to take a role in "Dynasty". (He also appeared on the slbum's original cover). Jason Connery, son of a well-known 007, took over the role for the third season. A fresh-faced Ray Winstone appeared as Will Scarlet, though it was Judi "Maid Marion" Trott that had me tuning in every week....
"Legend" is less traditional than much of Clannad's previous work - there's a greater use of 'modern' instruments and there are definite moves towards a more 'new age' sound. Although there isn't a great deal of singing on the album, this was the band's first release not to feature any vocals in Irish. Including a remix of "Together We", there are eleven tracks on the album. Most of them are around three minutes long - the exceptions being the remix of "Together We" and "Scarlet Inside" (both just over five minutes long) and "Battles" (which just makes it past the minute mark). Despite being so short, "Battles" is - for me - one of the better songs on the album - although the guitar features, the songs' focus is really on the percussion.

I love this album. I always have, and the likelihood is that I always will. I was born in 1984, and my mother had the original Legend LP. This is the music I was raised on, and believe me, it gets under your skin in a way you cannot imagine. Once heard, never forgotten. The LP disappeared sometime when I was growing up, but the fantastic music from this album lingered on in my psyche for years. Until, in fact, I was able to hear it again when this CD was released.

The tracks are so beautiful. At once both haunting and rousing, they are highly evocative - of what is hard to describe. Of the excellent Robin of Sherwood itself, without question, but of a larger theme as well. Of an age that never was, perhaps. Of half-myth, half-reality (which is why the use of traditional sound and vocals with synthesizers works so amazingly well). Of unity, mystery, long-forgotten pagan gods, of hope, fear and love. I suppose the track titles speak for themselves - Strange land, Ancient Forest, Battles.

As well as being musically brilliant, this (like most of Clannad's superb repertoire) is the sort of album you can devote your full attention to enjoying, or simply play in the background. My favourite tracks are Ancient Forest, Together We and Strange Land, but there isn't a track on the album I dislike.

Buy it if you like Clannad, Robin of Sherwood, or astoundingly beautiful and stirring works of music.
