Seth Lakeman proves once again that he is a master at what he does. 'Word of Mouth' contains 15 original songs, each tells a tale of a chapter in the history of Seth's beloved Devon and Cornwall. The second disc contains interviews telling the tales which inspired the lyrics for the songs, songs such as Tiger, which tells the tale of military disaster during the training for D-Day. Labour She Calls Home, tells the tale of Rowena Cade and her tireless job improving the Minack open air theatre. Bal Maiden, tells a story of female labourers in the mines of Cornwall. There is also a bonus dvd of the making of the album. The whole package is housed in a hard backed book which has the lyrics printed inside and a selection of photographs.

Seth Lakeman is one of a generation of young musicians, including his own brothers, who have shown an encouraging ability to build on traditions in English music and create a sound and a style which, if they might have seemed strange and alien to the collectors of folk music of a century ago, demonstrate the continuing strength and persistence of the music of our forebears. There is nothing really innovative in this new recording that will seem unfamiliar to those of us who know his earlier work, but he maintains his high standard with interesting and clever arrangements of attractive songs, using excellent musicians.

After being slightly disappointed with his last album 'Tales from the Barrel House' This for me is Seth at his best again. If you are a fan of the up beat ballads like 'Cherry Red' or the more haunting melodies, this album has both. As always high quality lyrics and outstanding musicianship are a given. After hearing it for the first time I booked tickets to see him in Northampton via the ticket master website (Fifth row!) Even my 17 year old daughter is coming- what more can I say...fantastic

I just love Seth Lakeman & his music. Was lucky enough to see him in concert in Cornwall recently. This album delivered in all respects. Obviously songs from this album he performed.
He has a rare talent for story telling so together with his musical abilities, combined to make an album worth listening to. Plus the DVD with the album made the listening all extremely enjoyable.

Seth has done it again! I originally heard his stuff from the Freedom Fields and Poor Man's Heaven albums, which were also fantastic, thus leading me to purchase his newest work. It's no wonder this album has won awards in the Folk category. It's full of high energy blazing fiddles, well structured musicianship and vocals, All in all a well produced album which is full of happy and sad songs alike. A real hair-raiser and spine-tingler.

If you're into your folk music, It certainly won't disappoint. The delivery was quick and efficient from Amazon and so far I've had no problems with the quality of the CD.

As you'd expect from Seth, another very classy album indeed. Many good songs and a couple of excellent. If you have never listened then starting here is as good a place as any. Very classy.
