I bought this CD for my sister as her ... ahem ... wedding present ... couldn't resist the bad pun I'm afraid. I'm a big weddoes fan and have the vinyl version of this, and used to play a track at the end of the night in an indy club, it always went down well and inspired a bit or drunken russian cossak dancing.
If you're a fan of world music and willing to open your ears a little, this is a must, a fantastic rendition of Ukranian folk songs. It performs a similar transformation to that which the wolftones performed on irish folk songs, making them into so much more and taking them some place else - although the weddoes do it so much better.
The tempo is nothing less than frantic and the whole thing really stomps. A couple of tracks from this album really gets the party going.
