This CD is a delightful mix of mostly traditional Scottish songs and tunes cleverly arranged and tightly produced. Talitha has an extraordinary voice with a wide range which she uses to great effect on this CD - I come back to this music again and again and derive great enjoyment from listening to it.

HASH(0x8c1a2228) out of 5 stars The Spirit of Gaelic Singing Fused With a Pop style 12 Mar. 2002
By Shanshad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Talitha Mackenzie takes traditional Gaelic songs and adds pop rhythyms and jazzy backgrounds to transform these songs into something new and intriguing. It's a bouncy album with a strong emphasis on beat. Good for dancing to. Talitha's strong vocals are backed by a wide range of instruments, congas, marimbas, saxaphone, electric violin, to name just a few. This album does combine a lot of unusual sound and voice combinations, but it seems to all work well together. If you prefer the more traditional Gaelic singing and acoustic back up, this probably won't fit the bill.
Nearly all the songs on this CD are Gaelic in origin, with the exceptions of #4 Hopa! (Bulgarian), #5 Ajde Jano (Serbian) and #8 Changerais-Tu? (Breton). Translations of all songs are provided on the liner notes.I add this CD into the mix when I need something upbeat and a little unusual to spice up an afternoon. If you can, check out a sample of a song or two here, #3 Fionnaghula is one of my favorites and #6 Fear A' Bhata is simply beautiful.

HASH(0x8c1a227c) out of 5 stars Addictive! 30 Nov. 2004
By Texas Celt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before listening to this CD I was apprehensive. I enjoyed Ms. MacKenzie's previous works, "Mouth Music" and "Solas", tremendously but didn't know how I'd feel about a album that strayed a bit from the traditional Gaelic essence of those albums by including a Serbian tune and a French (Breton) song.

I must now admit that I am addicted to the song "Changerais-Tu?" It fills me with a bubbly sense of glee that climaxes in a silly giggle each time I hear the goat holler. I listen to this song over and over and over again. I've learned the words by heart and find myself singing it around the house, while I'm walking the dogs, while we're waiting to be seated at restaurants, etc.

My wife has threatened to leave me if I can't kick this thing. Can someone out there help me? Please?

Oh, there are good Gaelic tunes on here too.

HASH(0x8c1a26b4) out of 5 stars Re-release of 1996 album with a few changes. Melding of Scottish and Balkan sounds really works! 6 Mar. 2013
By Steve Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is another case where Amazon groups reviews of all releases of a CD (or, in many cases, DVDs) of a particular album together. It's always important to sort the reviews by "most recent" and to look at the date the review was posted. This review is of the 2013 US release of an album originally recorded and released in 1996. Most, but not all, of the album is the same as the '96 release, with some English words added to two tracks. (You really won't notice the words though because on the opening track they are blended in to the mix and for the last track "3 Things" the English lyrics are whispered. But these are minor points.

I hadn't heard the earlier release so I only had this one to catch my ear, and catch my ear it did! MacKensie was born and raised in Long Island, NY but moved to Scotland in 1987. Most of the songs here are sung in Gaelic but there are some in Balkan and the two styles really work well together. It becomes even more "worldly" on the sixth track - "Saor an t-Sabhaidh" (don't ask me how to pronounce it!), where Mackenzie "sampled" African gumboot dances to give an African twist to the Scotish Strathsprey.

The 12-panel insert to the album provides the lyrics in both the native language and with English translation. This is helpful so you have some idea of what Mackenzie is singing about. But, honestly, the first time through, just listen to "sound" of the songs and her voice. That is enough to recommend this album.

See the earlier reviews for comments from those who discovered the earlier version of the album. You'll see I'm not alone in recommending this release.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

HASH(0x8c1a2a80) out of 5 stars a weathervane of changing music 13 Aug. 2006
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album some years ago, not realizing it was done in 1996.

Talitha apparently had her ear to the ground, because some of the beats she was using are everywhere now. Blending Scots Gaelic sources with WorldBeat and electronic music, she's created an interesting fusion album that catches the listener's ear and never lets you forget that this is traditional music, only modernized. In ten years, this album has held up very well, sounding as hip and cool as your new cell phone tone. Oh, there are a few tunes that sound as if you're back in the 18th century, such "Griogare", mournful and beautiful, but generally it's as modern as a microchip.
