If you already own copies of The Owl Service's twin albums from 2010, Burn Comes Down and View from a Hill, this two-disc album will feel like duplication to a large degree. It is, in essence, a re-release of those albums with nine additional tracks.

Of these extra tracks (and that is the most appropriate term because five of them are instrumental), three are very good indeed, and really should have been included in the previous albums; two are good instrumentals that might have just missed the cut; while the others are merely pleasant listening and not particularly memorable.

So what do we get here? The first disc adds seven tracks to The Burn Comes Down, taken from the various self-released DIY recordings that The Owl Service has produced. The first bonus track, Wake the Vaulted Echo, begins solemnly but very melodically before concluding with a "chorus" of electric guitar. It is among the best of the instrumentals. By the Setting of the Sun is a lengthy track with what is almost the typical Owl Service sound: it is quite a good composition, though slightly held back by the morose tone, slow tempo, and length. A couple of quite similar instrumentals and a relatively weak song (Maverick You Are) lead up to Fine Horseman, which is a bona fide standout: it has a particularly nice vocal by Diana Collier accompanied by some beautiful piano and guitar. Disc 1 ends with Saturnalia Song, which is a nice quirky jangly piece that would have fitted perfectly on A Garland of Song.

This takes folk music into another place. It's more than archivism, although that's clearlyimportant. It's a tapping of the artesian well of the human condition, using old tales, musical forms and excellent musicians to make sense of life in the 21st century. Which other folk group would carefully choose the scratches on the run out (or run in)of a vinyl record to add atmosphere to a track. And let's not forget the graphics and artwork of this, their other album and their EPs, all part of a whole and a real addition to the overall experience.

Sold, I believe by the band themselves so let's support them.

The albums 'The Burn Comes Down' and 'The View From A Hill' together in one package with 9 bonus tracks. The original albums not being available (and difficult to find second hand) at the time of writing, I would highly recommend buying this release while it's still available. Just stunning production and interpretations of traditional and original songs given a contemporary polish. If you have a decent pair of headphones you will be blown away by the sound quality on these disc's. Highly recommended!

As a long standing fan of British folk rock (Fairport, Albions, Home Service, Runrig and more), I was wondering who was going to pick up the baton - and, having read glowing reviews, I thought these might be the ones. Well, they obviously please some - but, for me, this is going straight to a charity sale with a prayer that someone else out there is going to do a better job. Instrumentally it lacks drive, vocally it really grates on me. Nothing about this rocks and there's none of the atmospherics or passion that would convey any sense of understanding or feel for the material.
