Product Description

Product Description

Nádúr is Clannad's first album of new material since 1998's Grammy winning Landmarks, and the sees the full original line-up – siblings Moya, Ciarán and Pól Brennan and their twin uncles Noel and Pádraig Duggan – back together on record for the first time since the 1989 album Past Present. It is a fitting title for the coming together of this legendary Celtic family band; Nádúr is the Gaelic word for Nature. Indeed, Nádúr is a very natural progression to the Clannad sound, which since the 70s has been to fuse the traditional with the modern, the past and the future, with stunningly beautiful results. Nádúr marks a forty year recording career which has seen such hits as 'Theme From Harry's Game', 'In A Lifetime', 'I Will Find You' and the soundtrack to the 'Robin of Sherwood' TV series. "Not since Seán Ó Riada gave birth to the nation has there been such a unique talent to remind us of who we are, who we were and who we can be, ancient and modern at the same time. Clannad, we owe you." - Bono

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever 6 Oct 2013
By S. Peel
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Clannad have been making music for a very long time now, with their unique blend of ancient Irish folk and modern rock and pop influences. There are two things everyone knows about Clannad: "They used to have Enya in them, didn't they?" and "They did that Robin Hood programme, right?" The answer to both of these is yes, but Enya is not the vocal star here (she departed in the early eighties), it's her sister Moya Brennan who has a voice that has not aged a day over the band's career. It remains pure and beautiful as it was on the Robin of Sherwood album. And there's a reason everyone remembers that show - the highly memorable memories that Clannad construct are a testament to the songwriting skill of all five members.
On Nadur that writing skill is brought to bear on songs that defy categorisation in many cases. Some, such as the lovely instrumental Lamh ar Lamh, are clearly folk, but most belong in a category marked "only Clannad does this"! They bring in guest vocalist Duke Special (probably not his real name) on standout track Brave Enough to great effect, and this song swells like a wave on a stormy sea while others employ more stripped back and gentle arrangements to create tracks with the beauty of a dewdrop on a leaf. Pol Brennan's whistle and flute playing, having been notably absent from a couple of their albums, is brought to the fore and sounds magical.
It could be said that they went through a period around the time they released the albums Lore and Landmarks when they struggled to recapture the greatness of their Robin of Sherwood glory days. Nadur shows that they've still got the skills, the voices and the talent to match the best of what they've given us in the past. If you like Clannad even just a little bit, then buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars They are back with a wonderful new album 26 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
I hope it won't take another 15 years for Clannad to release a new album but this one was worth the waiting. I am from Germany and I don't speak Gaelic at all, so with the Gaelic songs I just listen to the sound and the voices of Moya and the rest of the band. I wish I could understand the lyrics.
The album offers a variety of tradtional arranged songs and new modern songs and this mixture is perfect. It's definately the "Clannad sound". Moya's voice is still as beautiful as it was when I first heard it in 1987.
Also the song "Brave Enough" with Duke Special is wonderful.
I just hope Clannad will do a tour in Germany next year, I'll be one of the first to buy tickets - no matter where they are going to play!

The only thing that bothers me a bit is that there is no booklet and no real jewel case. I would have loved a few more photos and maybe a few words from the band. But other than that the album is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars The family that plays together stays together 25 Sep 2013
By Mr. D. K. Smith TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After a break of fifteen years Clannad are back, and Nadur is an impressive return. It has a familiar mixture of styles - with traditional-style Gaelic songs alongside more mainstream tracks which should pick up some airplay.

Although all the tracks are strong, if I had to pick some highlights then Brave Enough, a duet with Duke Special, which is probably the most poppy track on the album, is an instant classic - like much of the album it feels like it's always been part of the Clannad songbook. TransAtlantic is simply gorgeous and Tobar an tSaoil is a cracking upbeat Gaelic track.

Although it's been a long time between albums, the wait has been worth it, particularly since Pól Brennan (who left the group in the early 1990's) is now back in the fold. And some forty years after the group debuted, Moya Brennan's voice still sounds as hauntingly beautiful as ever.

After far too long away, Nadur is simply a great album from a legendary group.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, but long overdue, return 23 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After 15 very long years away from the recording industry, Clannad are back with their first new CD since 1998's Landmarks. Nadur is a wonderful return for this fantastic and incredibly talented band. Of course, at the forefront, are Moya Brennan's mystical vocals which shine through on all the songs. The highlight for me has to be the duet with Duke Special - Brave Enough - which is a worthy successor to the classic Moya/Bono duet In a Lifetime. As with many Clannad albums we are taken on a journey through mystical new age sounds (Vellum) to more pop and jazz-based offerings (The Fishing Blues). I downloaded this on Friday and have not stopped listening to it. It is brilliant. I just hope this CD gets the exposure it deserves and we get to enjoy some more new material from Clannad over the next few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmistakingly Clannad 26 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As previously commented, this album is a mixture of styles.
However,It is inherently Clannad with their signature haunting themes.
In my opinion there is no one else who can capture the magic of this type of music in quite the same way as Clannad.
From the unmistakeable voice and harp playing of Moya Brennan to the wonderful harmonising vocals of the rest of the band, they are true Celtic legends.
A great album and a must for fans of Clannad and Celtic music in general.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming. 22 Oct 2013
By Foales
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've followed Clannad for thirty years [every album and many concerts], so I was very excited by the prospect of a new album, especially after such a long break, and with the return of Pol Brennan, who's writing I tended to like the most. So it is with some reluctance that I give Nádúr only three stars... There is some very good material on this release, but it is dragged-down by some truly awful writing at times... 'The Fishing Blues', sounds like a rip-off of the terrible 'Octopuses Garden' and has some of the worst lyrics I've had the misfortune to hear... 'A quiet Town' also suffers from dreadful lyrics and it sounds very twee, which is not something I would normally associate with a Clannad track. 'Transatlantic' is a very good piece, but the very end sounds strangely tacked on, as if they did know how to bring the song to a close, as do the Bagpipes on the end of 'Turas Domhsa chon na Galldachd'... the timing of the Bagpipe section does not seem to match with the main melody, making it sound very awkward, which is a pity as the track is very good otherwise.

The rest of the album is very good, though it did not send shivers down the spine like some of their other work, and having to skip over two songs each play is a pain... The high point has to be 'Brave Enough' which is a faultless piece of writing, and almost worth the price of admission alone... Vellum comes very close too.
