A very listenable album,
This review is from: Festival Bell (Audio CD)Fairport always make good albums, but there have been one or two meanering ones in the last couple of years. This brings them back on form. With a back catalogue like theirs there is an awful lot to live up to, and the more they put out the harder it gets. However, I think this ranks with the Wood and the Wire which was their last belter in my opinion. My only critisism is about what isn't there because I would have liked to have seen a couple of traditional numbers included (but then what do you do with all the excellent material that IS included?)
If you have been wondering whether or not to buy this, then stop procrastinating, and get hold of a copy.
Then once you have heard it, listen to one of the other reviewers and go and see them live - a group of musicians that can actually play their instruments properly.
