Gaelic Storm - Special Reserve
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 23/02/2008 08:01:03
I suppose in many ways Gaelic Storm is the American equivalent of Australia's Bushwhackers Band and for those of you wondering where you've heard their name before they were the band below decks tearing up a storm in the James Cameron film 'Titanic'. Introductions over, the group represent the high octane Celtic fusion that made the likes of The Pogues so popular but with the introduction of Highland pipes they have added gusto which I know although this isn't anything new as far as we Brits are concerned (the Tannahill Weavers anyone?) for those uninitiated in the ways of folk bands I'm sure this album will prove highly energetic and entertaining. In many respects I'd call the album ragged but right as there aren't any outstanding contributions instrumentally speaking and that isn't meant as a sleight to the members of the band. This is the kind of music that you could experience in any self-respecting Irish pub down the Holloway Road on a Saturday night and in a nostalgic way I still hanker for it myself. The song writing isn't on a par with say Shane MacGowan although it's passable whereas a majority of their efforts seem to go into the more traditional material such as 'Courtin' In The Kitchen', 'Leaving Of Liverpool' and 'Johnny Jump Up'. So there we have it ladies and gentlemen, a bit of an old fashioned knees up.
