This review is from: Beautiful Wasteland (Audio CD)
What a thrilling album. This album show why Capercaillie are still going strong. To people whos complaining; so f what Capercaillie are doing something new doesn't mean it's bad. Has these people who've written bad reviews ever listened to mouth music (band), Tannas, Anna Murray, Mary Jane Lamond, Julie Fowlis, Kathleen Macinnes? I didn't think so. Anna Murray, did jazz funk, pop, rock, traditional, Tannas, did funk, ska (kinda), rock, dance, pop, jazz, traditional, Julie Fowlis, pop/rock/rock/traditional, sean-nos, Mary Jane Lamond, dance, rock, funk, traditional. If gaelic artists like them can get away with it, why can't Capercaillie? Look at Clannad who when they changed their style, it made them popular, or even Altan, or Calum Martin who uses country. Why are people againgst Capercaillie doing it? What too scared to seeing changes? I rather have an artist where each album is different, unless you want their new abum to sound exactly like first album. Would you want that? No didn't think so. Capercaillie's rooted to tradition, who said that Gaelic music has to all irish/scottish? Has it affected Paul Mounsey, Nope. Oh yeah Enya is popular around world for petes sake. This album brings in rock/jazz, drum n bass, hip-hop but they still sing in their tradition. People forget people like Celtic in Europe and I wouldn't be surprised if they are different. Oh yeah Sileas, Solas, Runrig. There's some african on this album; and it's second time they used this after previously using it on Capercaillie album from 1994. 12 tracks, most in Gaelic but don't let that put you off. Enjoy music, after music is universal, i.e can be enjoyed by everyone. You dont have to understand whats being said. Capercaillie have always played with their sound, like Corvus Corax has done with Latin, not gaelic but they did styles such as rock/classical/church hymms, medieval and are popular just like Capercaillie. I wasn't sure but then I said if I heard a song/style I didn't like would I cope? It started with Runrig; and found loving albums. One track I didn't like unilt 8 plays, no-one said you would like it straight off. For Beautiful Wasteland I played on Spoify and loved it. Granted it took me a few plays to appeciate quality of songs, sounds but's that's beauty of music. If you don't like it once, keep playing it, will save you hassle. Take some reviews with a bit of salt as I found out this album I will keep playing it on MP3 player as it's that good. Amazing.....
