5.0 out of 5 stars Now in quality sound 19 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
At long last some of the most popular of the Clannad back catalogue has been digitally remastered and re-released! For some, this was Clannads break-through mainstream album following hot on the success of the theme from Harry's Game and a contract with RCA. Access to a fully equiped studio allowed Clannad to experiment with colour and sound - this remastered CD finally allows you to fully appreciate it. The CD has sleeve notes and photographs. If you bought this first time round have no hesitation in rushing out and replacng the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clannad's finest album. 15 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1990 my holy trinity of albums consisted of Passion by Peter Gabriel, Hounds Of Love by Kate Bush and Clannad's Macalla. Nowadays, with much water under the bridge, Clannad don't hold such a hallowed place in my collection and I couldn't narrow it down to three key albums, but I see Magical Ring as Clannad's finest album. It documents a turning point in their story that had been hinted at on certain songs on Fuaim (such as "Ni La Na Gaoithe La Na Scoilb"), but that now came to the fore. Where Fuaim to me seems overall to be pleasant but unexceptional, Magical Ring is alive and bristling with the qualities that made Clannad so good. Their early albums have a naivete about them, and that sense is present here to a lesser degree, but here on Magical Ring something new has galvanized the band. Furthermore, half of the songs were written by the band, and they are all really strong pieces, from the song that brought them to a larger audience "Theme From Harry's Game" to the earthy "Tower Hill" and haunted "Newgrange".

Clannad, onto something good, evolved their signature sound over subsequent albums, sometimes taking it too far or down blind alleys (Sirius), here their early experiments are more rough-hewn, and the music feels imbued with an energy that comes when the artists are clearly excited about the new territory that they are exploring. Nowadays, the mystical New Age Celt thing has been run in to the ground by artists too numerous to mention, but back in 1983, Clannad were practically alone. It's hard to imagine, and I would think that a newcomer to Magical Ring nowadays mightn't notice that anything exceptional was afoot, having heard one variant or other of dreamy New Age Celt music wafting on the air in every tourist info centre or metaphysical bookshop across the land.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Ring by Clannad 1 May 2009
By lucinda
Format:Audio CD
Clannad in my opinion are in a class of their own; no-one can touch them or recreate what this group have done. I think any Clannad album is worth purchasing if you want to chill and generally escape from the world this one included..Its haunting and mysterious...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good 28 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although, somehow not quite the sparkly of the original, it seems to have lost something in the digital re-mastering process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 3 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If I was choosing my top 10 albums, this will always nestle within it. This is the best of the new-agey material that this group produce, and also the first one too. The sound is always clear, if a little dated, but the nostalgia isn't one for the 1980s, rather for another world long gone. Essential.
