Product Description

Product Description

TEARS OF STONE MUSIC

Amazon.co.uk

So thoroughly identified are they with Irish music, that even when the Chieftains depart from the tradition--to collaborate with Chinese, country or pop musicians, for example--they lose not a drop of credibility in the process. On Tears of Stone, the group accompanies a bevy of internationally acclaimed female vocalists on traditional tunes with inventive new arrangements by Paddy Moloney. Sinead O'Connor and the Corrs remain close to their roots, while Bonnie Raitt, Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Loreena McKennitt and Joan Osborne all sound more than convincingly Celtic. The best performances, however, are by those artists least attached to the tradition. Moloney's take on Joni Mitchell's "The Magdalene Laundries" outdoes the original; "Sake in the Jar", composed for Japanese pop star Akiko Yano, sounds like a new form of music altogether; and Canadian jazz singer Diana Krall's "Danny Boy" doesn't so much tug at the heartstrings as rip them out by the roots. --Richard Gehr

Certainly a diverse choice in artists. I found the Joni Mitchell track "Magdalene Laundries" particularly haunting and I must say it was my favourite track. The Corrs track "I know my love" was a bouncy uplifting number. You can't beat the voice of Sinead O'Connor and I was surprised to hear a great rendition by Shania Twain. In fact this album is full of pleasant surprises. A well worth buy that has become a timeless addition to my collection.

The Chieftains are known for their willingness to work with artist from many fields most notably the folk punksters of the Pogues but in this album they surpass themselves working with Female Artists as diverse Bonnie Raitt, Natalie Merchant, The Corrs, Sinead O'Connor, Joni Mitchell and others including a Japanese Artist Akiko Yano who I must confess I have never heard of before.

The result is a very satisfying album of Traditional Irish Music with a modern twist but I really think it was just an excuse to get to see and work with all these lovely ladies!

Chieftains are the introspective countepart of sunny and smiling Dubliners.
Both fantastic in their respective fields.
If you' re not prepared for these celtic cemetery atmospheres it' s better
not to buy it.
Some tracks differ in style:
"The magdalene laundries", is less "dark"
"I know my love" is "sunny" but misplaced
"Danny Boy" is one thing apart but not misplaced.... you could fall asleep
and think being in another time.
Sound is not fantastic but good.
Best track: "The magdalene laundries" performed by Jonie Mitchell.
This Cd is for sure not for everybody... maybe not even for me, but I think it
was well spent money.

Chieftains has made music fit more to a party than this. The style here is more sadness, a lot can be played in funerals! But it is so perfect made that you dont need to go to a funeral to cry a bit. Sound and masterring is very good. The audio picture are intencely nice and clear, not overloaded with instruments.

And look at the female featuring list: Joni Mitcell, Corrs, Sinnead O'connor, Lorreena Mckennit, Diana Krall and many others. You dont need to be a fan of Chieftains to love this CD. If you are able to relax, then u can enjoy this record! Its also possible that u turn relaxed when u listen to it!

(strange is that track list shown in amazons prescription shows track 1: Kerry Slide? Because its not written on the CD cover backside and not played in the disc, but all the 14 others are included)

The collection of super female singers helped making this album something new and again good old Chieftains quality. Sake in the Jar with Akiko Yano is a fine example how they can make something beautiful out of something seemingly incompatible like Japanese and Irish traditional music. I loved it!

This album is worth every penny. Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. I especially love "Danny Boy" with Diana Krall.
Fantastic!!!!!

Writing as an keen but amateur player of the bodhrán, I warn fellow sufferers not to purchase this CD. No matter what you are doing - slicing onions, tending your roses, hanging out the washing - you may be so afflicted by the bug as to grab your drum as soon as 'The Fiddling Ladies' start. It's tragic, likely incurable..but wonderfully addictive!
