This album contains Capercaillie's usual diverse mix, from the fast paced 'Claire in Heaven' & ‘The Crooked Mountain' - one of my favourite's, to the beautiful 'Nil si I ngra' and 'The Price of Fire' in which you appreciate just how rich and beautiful Karen Mathesons voice is, and the more traditional sounding 'Rob Roy Reels' (as used on the film.)
It also contains some great instrumentals too 'La Paella Grande' and the "Eastern Reel' are fantastic!
To the moon has to be one of my favourite Capercaillie albums as it captures completely the spirit of their music, for anyone who hasn't yet sampled the delights of Capercaillie then this is the perfect album to start with, if you are a fan, then this is a must have album!
I have listened to it another couple of dozen times now, and still play my scratched one in the car (hardly noticeable). BUY IT!!! You'll love it!!
The opening track, 'To The Moon', starts off slowly then builds to a crescendo in the middle up to the end where it trails off beautifully into 'Claire In Heaven'. I've found it very difficult to pick a favourite but I would have to say that my favourite tracks on here are 'Nil Si InGra', 'The Price of Fire', 'Eastern Wheel' (what a terrific instrumental piece) and 'Why Won't You Touch Me'. Karen Matheson's voice is so smooth and silky throughout the tracks on this breathtaking album.
There is a wonderful mix of Gaelic traditional stuff and English speaking songs on this album and some brilliant instrumentals including my favourite 'Eastern Wheel'. I don't think that Capercaillie have ever sounded so serene and I think that this album is full of magical moments that whenever I stick it into my CD player, I feel like I've been put under a spell.
This is an absolute gem and a peach of an album. For chilling out or even just to listen to, this is a definite must have. Just sit back and let the music and the magical sound of Capercaillie wash over you like a wave on a beach.

No complaints for the second hand price I paid! Great melodies and tunes. I've always liked Clannad and these are similar.Published on 29 Jan. 2014 by Falcons205Gti
Just stocking up my ipod with old favourites - as ever superb; I just play it over and over againPublished on 24 Mar. 2013 by Diane
This is good, maybe one of their best, only problem for me was the sound was too bright for this type of music, wish it was more like Altan's Harvest Storm.Published on 19 Feb. 2013 by Herbie
