High-energy, manic, heart-lifting music from this amazingly talented band. Mainly acoustic, with a bit of electric guitar thrown in, the 11-piece ensemble plays everything from violin and flute to banjo and accordion and plays them all extremely well.

There are so many influences in here - Celtic, folk, rock, all the way to gypsy reels and dancing Cossacks. From the rock-inspired March of the Troutsmen, through the Russian feel and sparkling humour of Superfly to the Eastern themes in the frantic Sea of Okhotsk this is music that will get you off your seat and jumping joyously around the house. There are a couple of comparatively more restrained tracks - gypsy violins peeping through in Look East and the more traditionally Celtic and rather lovely and lyrical Easter Island for example - but these just give you time to catch your breath between the rousing drama and breathtaking swirl of the faster tunes.

Whether you think you like folk or not, give this a whirl - it'll whirl right back at you. Fabulous!

See these guys in their masses on stage and this album is just as I'd hoped. Sheer delightful music keeping me entertained through, what to me is, a journey. Great value for money too as the tracks, (and the musicians energy), keeps on-going for each track, and doesn't suddenly fade out after a 4 minute 'blap'. Haven't stop playing it. MORE PLEASE.

I played this to some friends while we were having a wine tasting afternoon which very quickly turned into a dance-a-thon, the music is frenetic for the most part, maybe a little repetitive at times but a superb full on audience participation album. Great fun.

Origins is a very good album particularly for thr longer tracks. First heard this band at the Cambridge Folk Festival doing 'superfly' which was brilliant live. The album lives up to almost that performance. Longer tracks allow the band to explore their creativity and as such this album is great. Recommend this even though Folk/World music is not the first choice in musical taste.

Introduced to this band by a friend. Not usually a genre I would listen to, but having seen them live, they touched my musical heart.

Now, that's more like it...an album that is driven by pure energy! Rather than hide behind the word `art' as some form of defence the Treacherous Orchestra totter dangerously close to the edge without ever once falling off the precipice. With the colours of their Scottish roots proudly nailed to the mast the second track prepares the listener for a Celtic onslaught not unlike the battle cry of Robert Wallace about ready to do battle with the X-Box generation. The brooding power chords drone and fiddle melody of "March Of The Troutsmen" makes you rock with it's pumping crescendo leading you into the pipes driven "Sheepskins Beeswax/Taybank Shenanigans/Superfly". Unfortunately I wonder if it was a wise choice of segue between the minor/major key change on the first and second tune in the set which proves a little too much of a shock for lesser souls like me but then again you can't put a good tune down and, after all it's only a matter of taste. With a `Glasgow Kiss' (musically speaking) that would make anyone with a Scottish heritage proud the band features (amongst others) the pipes of Ross Ainslie and Eamonn Coyne's banjo and credentials that would make other groups green with envy. Rather like an all-instrumental Scottish eleven-piece version of Bellowhead I'm sure the orchestra are as flamboyant as their name suggests and I for one can't wait to see them performing live.
