Disco che sa di prati irlandesi, di sole, di mare, di aria fresca; canzoni eccellenti e ben fatte, scrittura ispirata, obiettivi ben chiari in testa e perfettamente raggiunti. Il momento magico in cui tutto ti riesce bene e quindi puoi permetterti di fare una cover della "Sweet thing" di Van Morrison migliore dell'originale ed in mezzo inserirci un estratto da "Blackbird" dei Beatles e tutto funziona alla perfezione.

Meh. I kind of liked the energy at first, but it started to feel self-indulgent to me after a while.

Along with, This is the sea, this is the best Waterboys album. Excellent tracks in, And a bang on the ear, We will not be lovers, and the title track. Excellent record.

They absolutely nail Sweet Thing...it's a good album but a little too inconsistent to be great.

There have been lots of takes on celt-rock over the years but to me this stands as one of the very best, if not the best.
