Capercaillie - Roses And Tears
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 11/03/2008 09:58:59
Opening with the gently propelled groove of "Him Bo" this album will see the band's regular supporters (whilst hopefully gaining a new legion of fans) soaking up the unmistakeable 'Capercaillie' sound. Once again rightfully taking her place as Scotland's first lady of Gaelic/English song, I beggar anyone not to be moved by Karen Matheson's awesome interpretation of John Martyn's powerful anti-war ballad "Don't You Go". The same could be said for Donald Shaw's thought provoking "Soldier Boy" which also provides the album with it's title. The statement in both songs is evocatively understated by the rest of this artful bunch of musicians; Michael McGoldrick, Charlie McKerron, Manus Lunny, Ewen Vernal, Che Beresford and David Robertson. With splashes of musical decoration including harmony fiddle and uilleann pipes or the attacking triplets of the accordion, the recording will entrance you from beginning to end. OK, so there's no super turbo-charged sets of tunes though they're well capable of cranking up the speeds, the band settle into feel-good grooves such as the "Quimper Waltz" and the more traditional set-piece "The Aphrodisiac". There are many reasons to applaud this recording not least for the outstanding quality of the production and dare I say that this is probably my favourite Capercaillie recording to date!
