Format: Audio CD
After a three year period which included the severance from their indie CD label, the legal threat over the loss of the group name and the exit of their primary songwriter, most fans would have seen the writing on the wall for any further musical insights for the group Cousteau. But since 2003, the group has been putting together the new era in a most satisfying manner.
"Nova Scotia" is a gem of recording worth discovering for new fans and for fanatics who crave the emo-crooning of Liam McKahey.
The new release offers many personal insights instilled into the
music that Liam has created for his devoted fans who desire a full sounding aural experience that grows on your senses with every listen. Please don't expect a re-hash of the songs from the past two releases....but you can expect a maturity of sound
and insight that the previous releases have had prior success upon. Expect songs of loss and sadness mixed in with regret and
midnight madness without the one(s) you love...but I hope that this description doesn't infer one downbeat song after another.
I view this aspect as sadness for the moments that have passed that allow for the open possibility of hopefulness for the future. This release is a worthy follow-up to the previous CD releases...and hopefully with allow greater worldwide exposure to
the Cousteau sound. Considering the obstacles of the past, I feel comfortable looking forward to Cousteau's growth of sound and fan base...and I feel certain that the future is once again looking very bright for the worthy indie group. I sincerely hope that the UK and US audiences of discriminating musical taste will now notice what Italy has recognized since 2001!

Cousteau are in the skies rather than under the sea and in the main the vocals on this album seem less 'fathom' deep, the lyrics heartfelt and meaningful with the music soaring rather than plunging (with a couple of exceptions). If you are an original Cousteau fan be ready for the change in sound. There seems to be a little less vocal from Liam McKahey and a little more music in the tracks giving the musicians a chance to be at the forefront.
Sadness has a surprisingly upbeat sound for what is a song about the sorrow of losing a parent, first to drink and then to death. This lifts the mood of the song. Sometime is written and sung by bassist Joe Peet, with backing vocals by Liam.
She's Not Coming Back was written for Paula Yates. The song has excellent lyrics, and flexible vocals with characteristic Robin Brown guitar, and Craig Vear's drums brushed a little more heavily than in the past.
There She Goes has a very full musical backing, with much stronger drums than previous Cousteau records and To Sail Away starts slow, builds into something stronger with a fine melody.
Echoes sends shivers down your spine with the vocals. It has a very gentle start, with a slow build up to a slightly stronger melody. An excellent fade out with keyboards gently takes the song out.
The stand out track is Black Heart of Mine which has superb guitar from Robin Brown. Understated drums and stronger keyboards (and vibraphone) underlie the darker lyrics. This track marks a definite, and welcome, change in direction of musical sound and lyrics from the group. It is more 'electric' than previous recordings and stands up to anything Cousteau did before. The song ends with a long, long fade out - gradually settling down until a subtle, ethereal finale which has hints of Riders of the Storm.

Here's the scoop. This is an excellent album. Not a weak track 1 thru 10. You'd think that losing their main songwriter would maybe lessen the quality of their output. Not so. In fact I'd say this album is better than Sirena, in that the songs are more focused, and at least as good as their first effort. The arrangements are different than their previous two albums, Nova Scotia has a somewhat less richly textured sound, which is no bad thing.
Well done Cousteau. More please!
I've seen the band live many times and they are indeed a very tight live unit. Well worth seeing.

I've been a fan of Cousteau since the beginning and think this is their best work so far. They deserve a lot more exposure. I recently saw them live, and they were excellent. Catch them if you can!

A really great 3rd album 31 Aug. 2005
By JB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The band slog on without ravey Davey Moore and what a slog it isn't. This is a really superior album with not a single dud track. A much more cohesive album than Sirena and as good if not, in some ways, better than the first.

It's interesting to compare this album with Davey Moore's solo album given that Moore wrote all of Cousteau's previous material. I have both albums and this one is streets ahead of Mr Moore's effort.

Well done Cousteau!

A New Path for Cousteau 1 Sept. 2005
By Music Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first time I listened to "Nova Scotia," I was initially a little let down in that I had waited three years to hear again from Cousteau and was expecting that usual Cousteau sound. I went into listening to it with the expectation that it couldn't be good without the contributions of Davy Ray Moor. But I have listened to it many times since then, and the one point I missed in the beginning is that this is actually a sign of evolution for them, they have lost their founder and key song writer and still managed to perservere with their own distinctive new take on the original sound. They had struggled for years to get this album signed and realeased, for a while even changed the band name to Moreau. I think it was a great move for them to keep the name Cousteau, just because they lost one of their most important members doesn't mean the band is lost, the show must go on. And it has, much better than you could have imagined. Liam still sounds great and is so distinctive and immediately recognizable vocally, and you can hear echos of that moody sound so attributed to Cousteau in the brilliant musical work of Robin Brown and Joe Peet. Yet this album is so much more young and edgy than the original sound of Cousteau, much more modern with rock and roll undertones. The tracks are all good, though it was tough for me to tell that at first because I immediately was just comparing and contrasting the songs to their earlier two albums. The main thing is you can't compare it to Cousteau's earlier albums, which reflected the work of a songwriter who is completely not involved in this latest album. The sound is totally different, the songs are composed by different songwriters, so it has to be evaluated at face value, not compared to someone else's work. It also forces you to recognize and value the great versitility and talent of the three key members, Liam, Joe and Robin, which wasn't as immediately apparent before. And once you can see it for what it is you can truly appreciate it. This is a very fine album, a joy to listen to over and over again. Great respect for Cousteau for not throwing in the towel.

Highly underated aural bliss 26 Nov. 2008
By radioh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album took me 3 years to buy, mainly because it was'nt available (readily,anyway)in Australia. I just presumed that it probably was'nt up to scratch.Eventually I saw the light! How wrong one can be? How many times can you listen to an album? The 3 Cousteau albums...every track, so good, every album,so good. Why are they not household names?? Moreau,Cousteau....Who cares! Brilliant.
You need this one too 14 July 2012
By Go - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love all of Cousteau's albums. While the first two were more successful, this one is wonderful too. I didn't buy it for the longest time because there were no song samples to hear and I read in several places that it wasn't as good as the others. Maybe not, but if not, just by a hair. If you're a Cousteau fan, you won't be disappointed. You need this one too.
