5.0 out of 5 stars Best Since Harvest Storm!, 27 Feb. 2015
This review is from: The Widening Gyre (Audio CD)
I have been a long time follower of Altan. Over the years there have been a few hit and miss albums but this offering brings us one of the best recordings they have done. The production is excellent for a start. The theme is traditional music meeting bluegrass but you can always recognise the predominant Altan sound throughout. At no stage is the distinctive Donegal base overwhelmed by the bluegrass topping. The balance is perfect.This is music to move the spirit and body. The singing is sublime. Suffice to say this is probably their best record for twenty years. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Human Spirit Endures, 20 Feb. 2015
Ignore the negative reviews. Yes it is about depression and no it doesn't have all the answers to combating it. But it leaves you wishing it would not finish the mark of a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Time Great Irish Traditional Album, 2 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Irish Concertina (Audio CD)
I find it shocking there is only one review of one of the truly great Irish music albums.. The previous reviewer is hung up by the production but in truth it is very acceptable and not bad at all. What you cannot argue about is the spirit of the music. Noel Hill plays to the tradition. No contemporary flourishes for him he sticks to the old ways. This is a man who appeared on a radio interview with The Pogues and slagged them off as imitators. Hence the Pogues song 'Planxty Noel Hill'. I love the Pogues but love the art of this album.The emotion of this music is etched in every note. This album is one of the cornerstones of traditional Irish music. The Irish landscape feeds this music and is evoked by it. Buy it.

Brilliant book. Never boring with all the early years mapped out in minute but engrossing detail. Extremely well written . Can't wait to buy part 2.

All said in the previous review. Starts off unstructured but then beautiful melodies come in. Dont quite see the Television comparisons myself but a really good guitar player who is getting positive press.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid. Drivel, 1 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a number of books in this series and they are very hit and miss. The Johnny Cash book is brilliant for example. This is awful. Only a few pages about the album all from sources you can get elsewhere. The rest of the book is fiction'. Save your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Love This After A Year, 6 July 2013
This review is from: All the Way Home (Audio CD)
Keep getting drawn back to this album. Cathy's voice is unique and has never sounded better. You won't find yourself skipping tracks as every one is brilliant. 'The Bold Fenian Men' is a revelation and her song writing is on a par with everything else. I have hundreds of CDs and this is right up there.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Actually Seems To Work!, 17 Mar. 2013

Tried for 2 years to get rid of an ugly looking wart on my forehead. Just seemed to make it worse. But after a few days of this it went black and I was able to twist the wart off in about 10 days. Still can't believe it. I am concerned it may reappear but so pleased with the results so far.
