3.0 out of 5 stars Bland, but with a few gems, 16 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Autumn Sky (Audio CD)
I hate to give a poor review to this great band, but I don't think Ritchie and Candice really had their hearts in this album, distracted as they were by Candice's pregnancy. I read somewhere that it was mostly recorded by them alone in a tiny studio and that's exactly how it sounds. The comments by some about drum machines are almost certainly on target. Teamwork from great musicians is part of what BN is about and dropping the band is a bit short sighted. As for the songs, some of them are disappointingly repetitive, with little development or variation. It is almost as if Ritchie was working to a deadline and said "That'll do". Not good enough. The dearth of violins is a real mistake, and there's too much of the bagpipe-style sound (sorry don't know the name of the instruments). That said, the best tracks that I always play are Journeyman, Keeper of the flame (brilliant) and Health to the company, the last of which shows off Candice's mature voice, the meld of New England and olde England, and brings tears to my eyes. Sadly most of the rest is disposable. Never mind, onwards and upwards.
