Damh's lyrics are those of a true contemporary Bard, dealing with the world we live in now and expressing a deep love of Earth and God and Goddess.His lyrics moved me.A bonus on this album is Damh's cover version of the song "Willow" from the original film of "The Wicker man" a duet with Eala whose voice has just the right haunting quality.Druids , Pagans and all Earth lovers will enjoy this bardic expression of a Druid dealing with modern day issues in his songs and keeping alive beliefs of the old path too.

I've seen Damh the Bard live on a couple of ocassions and can hum quite a few of his tunes but have never bought one of his albums.
After finally deciding to take the plunge, I had to decide which one to start with. The one song which always sticks in my mind was "Pagan Ways" so I bought this album based solely on that one song and I have not been disappointed

People frequently say that with Damh you feel the song rather than hearing it, oh this is so true. I think it helps somewhat if you have a Pagan type personality or belief (whether you want to admit it or not).

A couple of songs have a slight Billy Bragg-ness about them as well, Only Human speaks of hypocrisy between the western and third worlds

Pagan Ways references Big Brother and Wife Swap in the same song as Arthurian myth.

Both On Midwinters Day and Green and Grey have Judeo-Christian references
Green and Grey is perhaps my favourite song on the album. I have such vivid images when I hear it.

Truly an incredible album and now I have to decide on the next one

His music is purely brilliant, his individual style is fantastic. The song Only Human is brilliant and the lyrics are so true.

I love this album...it has some of the best lyrics that I've heard...I have no idea how Damh does it, but I'm so glad he does.

I love the song "Green and Grey"...a song about an encounter between Pan/Herne and a priest who thinks it is Lucifer/Satan...brilliant.

"Immrama" is a wonderful song, made me cry (and still does sometimes).

"Willow's Song" is a reworking of a song that was also sung by Faith and the Muse, but I prefer Damh's version. Eala's voice (who duets with Damh) has such a haunting, ethereal quality to it, beautiful.

Another great cd from Damh...I can't wait for number five!

Damh The Bard has produced yet another fantastic CD. His music and words speak to me in a way other Pagan songs and singers never can. I recommend his 4 albums to all Druids and Pagans, also people looking for something a little different that will make you think about how life today compares with the distant past. Links to Damh's three other albums. Spirit of AlbionHills they are HollowHerne's Apprentice

Another cracker from Damh.This bloke deserves every bit of praise he gets for this album - in fact, every album he has brought out. His songs cover slow and dreamy and fast and jolly. Great stuff.

If you already know Damh, buy this, you won't be dissapointed. If not, and you like great, tuneful Pagan folk. Buy it anyway!

This is just as good if not better than Hernes apprentice. I especially like Green and Grey and Only Human.
