Brennan stretches the bounderies of Celtic to a large degree with this album, with tracks ranging from a sound which wouldn't be out of place on an album made 20 years earlier, to the breed of ethereal music her sister is better known for putting out, to something akin to the ancient-feeling music Dead Can Dance produce. There's even a cover of the Joni Mitchell hit "Big Yellow Taxi", which seems to have been more recently covered by everyone and their dog, judging by the number of times versions of it play on commercial radio. One cruisy album.
