Karen Matheson's newest album seems to upset some of those who bemoan "she had better sing traditional songs OR ELSE!" I've heard of variety of criticisms of this album including a comparison to Celine Dion (this sort of absurdity boggles the mind! They CAN'T be listening, can they?) -- well, if folks are ready to open their ears and LISTEN, then they will hear a subtle, moving, richly realized work by one of the finest singers to emerge from Scotland in recent years. Not only that, but this album showcases one of the most talented and brilliant of Scottish writers and musicians, James Grant, who contributes a number of original tunes and is among the very talented group of musicians who back Karen Matheson. I'm still scratching my head at those that bemoan Grant's writing: he deftly weaves music and lyrics that are direct and simple enough for popular song, yet that are vibrant and insightful through their imagery, emotional range, precision, and poetic qualities.

Some utterly beautiful songs - just what we'd expect of Karen! There's a powerful and seductive, yet sad, sense of introspection on more than half the songs. I can't give it five stars because a few songs just don't seem to mesh with the overall mood of the album (dates me, doesn't it!) - "CD" for you young ones.
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!

Karen Matheson has without question one of the finest voices to ever utter a note. On the other hand, a great singer alone does not make a great, or in this case, even good album. With the exception of Morning, which is not that bad of a song, but still somewhat bland, the lyrics are just boring and the music being played to accompany the lyrics are nothing to get excited about either. One of the songs uses Robert Burns' writing as lyrics, but again the music just fails in every aspect.
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.
