Altan has long been one of the most consistently thrilling of the current crop of traditional Irish groups, and it's difficult to pick a single highlight from their catalog.
But if pressed, many fans and critics would pick either Harvest Storm or the equally fine Red Crow.
Although the program is a fairly typical collection of traditional reel sets, jigs, Gaelic songs, and slow airs, every track feels as if it were chosen for a unique sort of loveliness -- the soaring beauty of the "Rosses Highlands" set, the curiously eerie hush of the traditional wedding song "Dónal Agus Mórag," the chugging energy of "Drowsy Maggie."
This album stamps Altan as a band whose vocal blend can fully match the mastery of their fiery instrumental playing.
