5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Storm in a tea cup....., 9 Aug 2006
This review is from: The Storm (Audio CD)
What follows here are a number of non-lyrical pieces of music that defy classification. It's not traditional in the normal sense because of its modern feel yet the instruments of traditional music are used. The album tone is extremely affecting, possessing an "influence" of a poem. I would recommend listening to the album while driving as it has a very calming affect. The first track is "the lark", a roving celebration, I suppose, to that tuneful bird. 12 minutes plus, I might add. Then the mood changes to the moody yet delicious piece called "the Titanic", a tribute perhaps, to the mighty liner. This tune is especially spiced up with wonderfully slow additions of instruments a la tubular bells. "The Storm", the title track continues in a similar vein, evoking a feel of huge waves, salt water spray and ever darkening clouds. "Finore" and "Tribute" are slower than the previous offerings with magical offerings, particularly from the wonderful Uillean pipes. "May Morning Dew" a very short piece evokes a mood of awakening and helps the album finish gently.

This album has reached "classic" status in Ireland with arguably the cream of instrumentalists working together.
