Product Description

Brothers Mcmullen ~ The Brothers Mcmullen: Original


Sarah McLachlan's drop-dead beautiful "I Will Remember You" is the calling card here. The bonus is that the Celtic score by composer/flautist Seamus Egan is a gentle treat in itself and merits comparison with Mark Knopfler's work on Local Hero and Cal. --Jeff Bateman

This album finds its feet essentially in Seamus Egan's captivating score. Sarah McLaughlan's track, albeit surreal, is in no way the "highpoint" of this album. This soundtrack showcases Seamus Egan's immense talent as a composer and juxtaposes it well with the film itself. A film about 3 Irish catholic brothers in Long Island trying to find a firm footing. It almost seems to be an estranged relationship with the new land, and their entrenchement with their culture and history, remnescient by the frequent use of the "Irish Guilt" phrase in the movie.
Its this picture of ireland and the roots/culture that Seamus Egan pulls out and paints beautifully on an alien canvas (analogous to their life in USA). The tin whistles, fiddles, harp etc. lend a magical sound.
The Second track "A week in January" opens with a rousing and well paced guitar laden track followed by a very traditional celtic ensemble. "When Juniper SLeeps" and "Once upon a time" are two of the best tracks on the album. Touch that magical chord deep within. Cape Breton set, actually transports one of the north east canadian shores, of which the music is very remniscent. Finally, the final track offers a beautiful and simple closure to the entire labour of love.
The merits of the movie are quite hotly debated, but the strenghts of this score are unquestioned, some even suggesting that whatever little substance the movie had was made bearable by the beautiful score. Certainly i am going to digress from the heated debate on the film content, and urge you to give this listen for what it is worth, the actual score that makes the album, and not the one track which is but a part of the grand ensemble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seamus Egan is the God of Irish music! Feb. 14 1999

Sarah McLachlan the high point of this album?!?!? Listen, I own 4 of Sarah McLachlan's albums and I enjoy her very much but this is Seamus Egan's album and his musical talent is incomperable as always! I seriously doubt whether the Amazon.com reviewer who wrote the review for this CD had any knowledge of traditional Irish music at all. If he had he would certainly have recognized what masterful album it is and how brilliant Mr.Egan truly is! Sarah McLachlan didn't even write the tune for "I Will Remember You", Seamus Egan did. You've got to love clueless reviewers! Buy this album (and the rest of Seamus Egan's/Solas's cds)!

While I like the Sarah McLachlan track, it is the great work by Seamus Egan that really makes this album. In fact, McLachlan's song is merely a reworking of Egan's "Weep Not For The Memories," track 12. "...Memories" and several other tracks on this album can also be found on Egan's beautiful "When Juniper Sleeps." Egan, who at the stunning age of 14 had become the All-Ireland champion on no less than FOUR instruments (mandolin, flute, banjo, and tin whistle) is an incredible talent and certainly deserves top billing over McLachlan on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great song and score. Oct. 27 2003

I do really like "Sarah McLachlan", and the song here is one of her better ones, but I often start this disc on track two. Whether or not it reminds you of the movie, it's just a great 11 tracks, some upbeat, some not, of traditional irish instrumentals. Flute, guitar, and all the instruments you would expect. If you like this cd, you may also enjoy the "Don Juan De Marco" soundtrack. It begins with a great "Bryan Adams" song, and the rest is all spanish guitar. It's also very good.
