The combination of a folk act and a brass band is one which will always work as both these areas of music are what is the music of the people.Though the Bobby Darin styled version of their previous song rather throws this album its still worth 5 stars.
The Diversion series sounds like a good idea but I don't think I'll bother with Vol 1 as I don't know the songs of Robert Wyatt or the other act.
If there's to be a further volume I whould think the songs of Paul McCartney would be very appropriate especially if they use the Black Dyke Mills Band

I bought this for my husband after he mentioned that he liked a track he heard on the Mark Radcliffe/ Stuart Maconie show on Radio 6. It is not often that I listen to cd from beginning to end on the first play but I fell in love with this from the first track which brought tears to my eyes. The voices and the sound made by the brass band is sublime. The stories told in the songs are easy to follow and so real to life. Not the usual sort of thing I go for but the music is full of emotion and is just wonderful.

The second diversion of The Unthanks travels in another direction than Vol. 1 did - when Vol. 1 took the folky road disguised as a chamber piece, Vol. 2 goes on stage with a bang, thanks to a splendid brass band. The tales are sad indeed - but here, as on vol. 1 - the tale is told without tears.

I usually read the 1-star reviews to get a different perspective on an album. Having sampled the album on Music Sampler, I have ordered the album. I join the 11 others (5-stars) who clearly love saccharinated bilge. Maybe if I lived in Northumbria rather than Cumbria I might feel differently.

Huge live sound present here.
It feels as if you are actually in the room with the performers.

Nothing to add over all the previous good reviews posted here.
Buy it and be amazed.

This is a wonderful mix of folk tradition and brass that inspires as well as entertains. It pulls at the heart strings and is capable of deeply touching the listener . I would love to see them live.

I still prefer to see what i have bought - it also seems more respectful to the artiste(s). Great music and production . You have to buy the 3 volumes they are all fantastic.

Brilliant remix of some old songs with a wonderful soulful brass band accompaniment. Those girls' lovely voices completely match the band and vice versatile. A joy

It's the Unthanks, what more can I say?, and up to their regular standard. Listened to regularly, and expected to be played even more.
