“It has been over five years since Danu have released an album. This is put out on their own label and is a cracker! It sounds as polished as ever and Muireann’s voice is getting more beautiful with time.” (Claddagh Records)

The decline in quality continues…

Couldn’t agree less there pmcallis. I think this is their finest work to date. Most mature, well-rounded and solid album this band has ever made.

Wasnt sure at first but now convinced - third polka on track 2 is perfect and Muireann’s inflections on track 5 haunt me, world class singing…

Nell Fee’s Polka

Polka #2, track 2 seems like it’s Nell Fee’s polka, not John Brosnan’s reel.

Re: Seanchas

Star track on this one for me is the English/Irish duet song with Ciarán O Gealbháin (previously Danú’s singer) and Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh. I do like a Macaronic song!

Apart from that I couldn’t help feeling that the whole thing is slightly muted, like driving with the handbrake on!
It’s a lovely album, but have they been told to be on their best behaviour?
