Could anything capture the magic of St Kilda ?
This collection makes a fine stab at it.
Robin Robertson's poems are beautiful in their simplicity,
and so evocative....in "Leaving St Kilda" his list of place
names as he circumnavigates the islands becomes a love song.
I'd never heard any Alastair Roberts before..took me a couple of
listens to get used to his unusual voice.. but it is just perfect
for the songs and his rendition of "Exodus" is sublime.
Don't be put off if it's not what you expected at first listening
..you'll come to love it..it's a real grower!
Love it Love it
