Those who, like myself, have previous albums by Maire ( or Clannad ) will already know that she is a songwriter and performer of exceptional talent. This album follows on from the wonderful 'Perfect Time' and is every bit as good. The opening track is instantly catchy, yet by know means simple or shallow. Certain numbers are a little more 'poppy' than one might expect, but it all hangs together with great ease. Here are fourteen excellent songs, most outstanding in my view are, 'Hard to break the Seal', 'Peacemaker', 'Ageless Messengers' 'Rinne tu' and the tastefully done 'Don't Give Up'. Gentle, melodic and inspiring.
