Great CD and have bought other CDs from the group. Folky style with a rock edge. Takes me back to Scotland every time.

I had this album on tape many years ago and thought to try it again for a trip up to Scotland. Not as good as I remember it which was a shame.

This was their and my forth album, as I'm working my way from the beginning, and it's well up to standard. Celtic Rock at its best. Absolutely brilliant.

Really Celtic, really rock and really Scottish. 7 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This band is different. For one thing it is "celtic rock" not rock done by a group living in a celtic city. For another it has a distinctly scottish flavor rather than the more commonly found Irish. Its use of scottish instruments, rhythms and themes is refreshing and the groups ability to rock using these instruments is readily apparent. Production values and musicianship are excellent. Dive into a new experience - you will enjoy.

How can you improve on the best? 10 Feb 2000
By Kevin L. Nenstiel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the fourth Wolfstone album I've reviewed here (I own every one of their albums that's available in the U.S.) and this is by far the best of the lot. The closing track, "Dinners Set," is absolutely imspired. What more can I say? After all the other glowing reviews I've given, this one is the one that runs me out of words. (I know, could have fooled you.)

A good offering from a Celtic FOLK Rock band! 28 May 2003
By jasperg55 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
(4.5 stars actually) This Wolfstone disc shows a marked change in style from the more Rock edged Celtic stuff of their first two discs, with a return to their folkier roots...still though, it has power and rocks...the songwriting and playing is stronge...this one is actually one of my favs - worth checking out!...

Wolfstone kicks 23 Jun 2000
By Karrin Richter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD was my first exposure to Wolfstone a few years ago. Just purchased it again, as I loaned it out and it never came back...which is a good thing :o). Wolfstone's use of fiddle, pipes, and electric gutiar is wonderful. White Gown...what can one say? Powerful lyrics are Wolfstone's strength.......into Celtic music? This is a MUST have.....

I never remembered it being this bad 20 April 2009
By Christopher Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I loved Wolfstone's album YEAR OF THE DOG as a high schooler not long after its release in the mid-1990s. I remembered it as a hard rock album whose energy was only expanded through judicious use of traditional Scottish instruments and folk melodies. This sort of rock-folk melange is indeed what Wolfstone does, but upon hearing the album again for the first time in well over a decade, I was shocked to discover that pretty much every track on YEAR OF THE DOG uses goofy-looking synthesizers.

The instrumental "Ballavanich", with its prominent use of bagpipe, might sound like a compelling track to neophytes, but it can't compete with the instruments on Wolfstone's next album, Half Tail(1996) where the band has judiciously limited the use of synthesizers to better effect. "Double Rise Set" is almost musak. "Morag's Reels" is actually a little better than I remembered it, while the album closer "Dinner's Set" is pretty generic and far from the rocking ending I thought it was. Vocal tracks have, with few exception, been Wolfstone's worst. With "White Gown" we inexplicably have this Scottish band condemning the KKK as if the Southern American racist gentry from the 1920s is still a pressing international concern (as opposed to contemporary appearances of racism), with cringe-worthy lyrics. "Brave Foot Soldiers", whose theme is a walking campaign against poverty, sounds like a 1980s "We are the World" solidarity song reject. "The Sea King" is the only one of the vocal tracks I care to listen to more than one, a nice portrait of a crusty old sailor, though its synths make it a guilty pleasure.

Wolfstone got an enormous amount of praise in the mid-1990s in the roots music press, but in retrospect it seems to have mostly been for their live sets, which had a ferocious energy. Their output on disc is often disappointing, and I couldn't recommend YEAR OF THE DOG.
