I have always loved the work of Christy Moore since the early 1980s. Seldom does he offer us anything less than the best and King Puck maintains this tradition. If I were forced to select the best tracks here, I would have no hesitation in selecting Lawless / Johnny Connors / Before The Deluge and the epic 13min and 20secs of Me and The Rose. This album also saw Christy move much more towards the recording of his own compositions (Of the 10 songs on offer only 3 are not his own work) He is a National Treasure.
An excellent collection of humour and wordplay in lawless and many other songs on this album.One of Christys best albums and an excellent introduction to any new listener of his music.Before the deleuge is one of his most powerful and remembered songs of his old band "Moving Hearts" and coined his trademark phrase "let the music keep your spirits high", A must for any Christy Moore fan!.
