\r\nCD 2010

This might well be his best solo album to date and stands alongside classics such as his album with Paul Brady, the Planxty albums and his two recordings with Mozaik.He's in fine voice throughout, his mandola, bouzouki and harmonica are as virtuosic as ever and the song selection is superb. This is a wonderfully varied collection, moving from stirring union songs like his own epic "Victory At Lawrence" to the rustic whimsy of "The Girl Of Cushenden" and on to the vast and brooding re-telling of "The Demon Lover" complete with a time signature that defies analysis. \r\n

Andy Irvine has called his latest release "album of the century" as it is his first solo release since the 90's. Just to say it is well worth the wait - fabulous songs, singing and playing and lovely production by Donal Lunny. Each of the 11 songs is really top class. A personal triumph for Andy! - Ron Fleming
