I simply LOVE this album! featuring several tracks from the TV programmes "Highlanders" and "A Prince Among Islands", it oozes with typical Capercaillie charm and many other beautifully performed traditional pieces too. Karen Matheson's exceptional voice, as Sean Connery mentioned in the series "Highlanders", has "surely been touched by God". So pour yourself a single malt (Scottish of course!), put your feet up and indulge your ears to a near-spiritual experience!

Capercalie are among the best of the celtic bands who furrow that path of the modern with a strong celtic sensibility. The overall impact is sombre and emotional, with a sense of wistfulness. Id recommend it loud of an evening as the light begins to draw in the and the leaves fall

This is probably the most (pleasantly) haunting piece of music I have ever listened to; and hearing it again throws my memories right back to my 4 days backpacking in Knoydart. It evokes views of mountains that rise right out of the sea, of distant fishing boats plying between the isles, and of lonely deserted crofts in remote glens. But it's a complex CD with subtle changes of mood: some tracks are more evocative of cosy taverns with drinking friends gathered round a fireplace. I play this album in my car, to relax after a stressful day at work - and I drive safer and more considerate for it!

from the lilting openeing track, this CD takes you on a changing journey of melodies and songs. many are in gaelic, but this does not detract form the superb melodies and crafted arrangemants. Some great tracks with an american influence. favourite imstrumental -Callum's Road. fave track Track 1 "An Gille ban" I have 5 Caprecailllie albums and this is the most lyrical and restful

I have to agree with the last comment; on this CD is some of the most stunning music I have ever heard. Karen's voice has indeed been kissed by god, as Sean Connery said.

Heard this beautiful music in a little museum of local life, in Gairloch, Wester Ross, NW Scotland - it added to the experience and insight I gained of a hard life lived there over the last 3,000 years or so. Had to buy it and the gentleman on the desk kindly gave me the details, as they did not have any copies left for sale.

One of my favourite albums, with beautiful, evocative music and simply stunning vocals. 'Fear A Bhata' remains in my top 3 songs, and its plaintive yearning is a highpoint of an extraordinary collection of music.
Capercaillie have never sounded better than they do here.
This is real Gaelic music at its finest.
