I've always loved Scottish music, so when I bought this cd I had pretty high expectations. But I can honestly say that Wolfstone met them. This band has an amazing ability to mix Celtic tunes with rock. Whether you're looking for bass and drums, or fiddle and pipes, this cd has it. The instrumentals on "seven" are exquisitely beautiful. Many of them have a moving somberness about them, but then the band kicks back with songs like "Psycho Woman" and "Maggie's". My particular favorite, however, is the intro to "Brave Boys". It is lovely and powerful music at its height. As for the lyrics, they may not appeal to all because they are somewhat vague, but you'll get it if you listen to the cd enough. For those who are more familiar with the deep voice of Wolfstone's previous singer-Ivan Drever-the vocals might take some getting use to. However, Stuart Eaglesham has one of the most beautiful and unique voices I have heard in a long time. He captures in his voice much of the Scottish youth. In addition, the lyrics in these songs teach better lessons than most modern music("Black Dog"'s anti-drug message, for instance). The cd ends with an instrumental, overlapped by the band's recital of a poem in their melodic Scottish accents. This album is truly a delight.
