A Gaelic grower!,
This review is from: People Like Me (Audio CD)
I know little (nothing!) about Gaelic music, but bought this record on the strength of a track included on the excellent `This is Navigator Records' sampler.
The record is split between both English and Gaelic numbers and listening on headphones I sometimes don't even notice the switch. I think this is mainly because of the way Alyth uses her voice, it is treated more as an instrument as opposed to adding support to the musical track. This approach delivers a more integrated whole that works very well.
The choice of songs has a very traditional feel, particularly on numbers like `The Queen and the Soldier' and `The beautiful lie'. This is a intriguing album and was not an instant favourite but with repeated listens has become a real grower.
