I try generally not to court too much controversy but on this occasion I'm prepared to stick my neck out. This album is so good, that if there is the occasional weak track it just doesn't matter when you've got songs like 'The pursuit of farmer Michael Hayes'. Honestly you can't underestimate the sheer power of it. Recall the horse chase in 'The legend of sleepy hollow' or the intensity of O'Connor's The star and the sea' and you've got the idea.Other songs of note include The rambling suiler and the Rambling boys of pleasure.
I saw Planxty live a couple of years ago and heard 'Words and music' some time ago but this is the one that gets me dancing.

The first Planxty album that I heard was their debut, which I honestly thought that they could not top, but "the break" obviously did them a world of good, as this album is just amazing. Right the way through, the choice of material, the playing, the singing and the production is faultless. Listen for "The Good Ship Kangaroo", "East at Glendart/Brian O'Lynn/Pay the Reckoning", "The Pursuit of Farmer Michael Hayes" and "Smeceno Horo". The latter two are especially outstanding.

Planxty.
How can you go wrong with the most talented line up in Irish music.
Worth getting even if you have other Planxty albums because the arrangements differ.
Don't miss it!

original line up of christy moore, andy irvine, liam o'flynn, donnal lunny and more.

This irish traditional band have a good mix of some immensely infectious songs and reels. Their great talent is reflected in the crisp instrumentals and distinct vocals. The band knit together with ease to create some superb songs such as the tale of 'The Good Ship Kangeroo'. A few good memorable songs stand out but the rest are just a little muddy and merge into each other. Still the album holds some intresting traditional songs but this just doesnt live up to the standrds of Planxty's previous albums. Give it a try if your a die hard fan!
