Product Description

Talitha MacKenzie's compelling voice has such beauty and power that once heard it is never forgotten. Co-founder of the duo Mouth Music, she demonstrates in this, her debut solo album, her unique and innovative talent. "MacKenzie's Gaelic is proud, vibrant, complex, multi-textured, subtle, sensuous - and sexy. Perhaps it is this last quality, the insistent rhythm, the soft vocal caress that hardens with passion, the throbbing bass line underpinning a dance club mix, that makes her music potentially as disturbing to Scotland as black rock 'n' roll first was to middle-class white America" - The Sunday Times (UK) "...MacKenzie back on cracking form. Excellent" - Q (UK)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great modern Celtic album 12 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with Talitha MacKenzie when she was with "Mouth Music". She left to pursue a solo career, and both she and Mouth Music have been going great guns (she was replaced by the amazing Jackie Joyce). This album has some songs originally from Mouth Music's debut album, most notably "Chi mi na Morbheanna", which was played at JFK's funeral. It has been improved with some excerpts form his most memorable speeches (eg. Long Twilight Struggle), making it quite haunting. It also pays to read the words - the spiteful lyrics in "S'Muladach mi" really come through in her voice! The music is upbeat and catchy - a great way to bring traditional Scots Gaelic songs into a modern context. Expand your horizons - I highly recommend buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talitha MacKenzie - Solas 26 Mar 2003
By :-) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this CD by mistake. I am very glad I made that mistake. This is wonderful and like the other reviewer said, a "great way to bring traditional Scots Gaelic songs into a modern context". This is extrememly interesting music, the lyrics beautiful.

2.0 out of 5 stars An excellent argument for buying tunes on i-tunes 7 May 2007
By Rebecca Menes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, a word about my preferences. I like my Celtic folk straight up, with relatively traditional elements and arrangements. When Talitha MacKenzie stays away from the synthesizer and the drum machine she makes me very happy. She has a lovely voice and she shines in the simplest tracks on this album. Unfortunately, most of the tracks have been arranged as 80s pop tunes, which have not aged well.

This in mind, I recommend the following tracks:

Uamh an Oir (The Cave of Gold -- Mouth Music)

Rol Hol Ill Leo (Waulking Song, Sea Shanty)

Theid Mi Dhachaigh (The MacKenzie Lullabye) -- very lovely.

Otherwise the album is a bust.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good lord, this is so terrible!!!!!!!!! 18 Dec 2004
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is so incredibly tacky. The arrangements are embarassingly generic and bland... Ugh! It's records like this that give Celtic music a bad name.
