So it's inevitable that it will put some folks off, but no one should sell the album short, because it contains some outright masterpieces of the genre. "The Mooncoin Jig" is particularly expert, one of the best folk-rock instrumentals ever, the mandolin and banjo coexisting naturally and seamlessly with the electric guitar,… Read more
