5.0 out of 5 stars Altan in their usual top form, 7 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Another Sky (Audio CD)
Ever since hearing a song of theirs on a collection of Irish music (Eíst, Songs in their native language), I've become a devotee of Altan. Each of their albums is an absolute gem, mixing playful high-speed reels with emotional songs. Their latest effort, Another Sky is no different. You won't be able to keep your feet still during the reels, and if you're not moved by some of the songs (Island Girl is one of my favourites on this album), your heart must be made of stone. A must-buy for anyone who loves Celtic music.

5.0 out of 5 stars This will remind you of your Irish Holiday, 24 Mar 2008

This review is from: Another Sky (Audio CD)
This is not a modern release but you will never get tired of playing the haunting melodies of Altan. Their are 8 celtic songs and 5 instrumental which include 3 fast reels.
Total playing time was 49min 39sec, and all 13 tracks were great.

For me this album reminded me of sitting in an Irish pub with the local band coming in and having a jam.
This album is the best for an introduction to Altan, and their work in music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some excellent songs, and one which is desperately twee, 4 Mar 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Another Sky (Audio CD)
As the album begins, Altan seem to be at tht top of their form, with the first two songs, "Ta aonach amarach" and "Green Grow the Rushes" as good as anything they have ever done. Although nothing else quite matches up to this beginning, the standard is high throughout, with one glaring exception - "Island Girl" is so twee and candy-coated it sounds more like a teenybopping folk/pop boy band, if there were such a thing, than a traditional music supergroup like Altan. Other than that, the instrumentals are excellent as ever and the other songs glowing examples of the band's versatility. Recommended.
