From the thunderous opening that is `Upyerockye' to the closing rapture of `M.S.B.' this album is a glorious assault on your senses. The pounding drum beats are accompanied by the highland pipes giving you an energetic sound that is so infectious it will have you tapping your toes or fingers in accompaniment. If not, I reckon you need to check you're not in a coma!

The whole pipe and drum rock genre has really taken off in recent years and Saor Patrol are at the very top of that genre, but this album from 2007 is a little different from their earlier works in that it includes the addition of the electric guitar. It works well in my opinion though its most pronounced on the `The Stomp'.

There are plenty of changes of tempo to keep you interested, ranging from the high octane `Rocky Top' to mournful the sombre lament `Aftermath (Blar-nan-Leine 1544)'. When trying to list my highlights, I found I'd pick half over half of the 13 tracks and even attempts to be ruthless only cut the list down to six.

My six in order as they appear on the album: `Upyerockye' was the perfect opener, `Wallace Bled' a fantastic adaptation of `Scot's Wha Hae', `Clansmen' is folk rock heaven and you'll be hard pushed to find a more beautiful and melodic pipe and drum tune than `Solvieg', `Weramur' rocks you right into the Scottish Highlands and `Rocky Top' across the wild Atlantic to Tennessee.

I usually have a Saor Patrol CD in the car and with the title `Full Throttle' you can imagine this one is a favourite for motorway journeys. Saor Patrol rock and so does this album. Get it if you can, you won't regret it!

This is a fabulous album. Can't rate it high enough. Love the drums and the bagpipes. Memories of childhood holidays in Scotland and going to local Ceilidh dances. Will definitely buy more of their albums.

Really enjoyed this album. Saw Saor Patrol play on the 'One Show' and immediately downloaded it.
