Karen excells in the Gaelic language, transporting us to a world transfixed between both the modern and ancient, but she fails to give us enough of the Gaelic on this album. "Morning" is brilliant enough in the English language - one can only begin to imagine how incredible it could be in Gaelic.
An Ataireachd Ard (The Song of the Sea) is possibly the best song ever of Karen's. It transports the listener to Scotland's Western Isles, a special, often seemingly timeless land, rich in history and contemporary life. Perhaps it is no coincidence that I am also reading Adam Nicolson's "SEA ROOM - An Island Life in the Hebrides".
I strongly recommend both!
If you wish to see Matheson at her best, find her tracks that appear on almost every Secret Garden CD, or any Capercaille album, her voice is just beautiful. This, unfortunately is the complete opposite other end of the spectrum. I advise anyone but die hard fans to stay away.
