5 stars This is what it says on the website "The surprise album of 2013 will surely be Return to Mingulay by Oceans 5" . I have been following most of these musicians in other bands for a while and this album really is not something that would be expected from any of them. Listen to Unified past, Corvus Stone and then this. Have they gone mad? Is this a folk band? IMHO NO! Also, how did they get one of the McBroom sisters( Pink Floyd ) on here! This is an amazing album that could be enjoyed by anybody. There is no best track for me. I get the feeling from many of the songs that I have heard such a song before but none of them are really alike. Mingulay boat song, Sails off the bay and 6000 friends are all dramatic. Empty hands is classic rock. 3 of the songs sound like they are designed to make you dance and laugh. It is the sort of collection of songs that would convert a non music lover into a prog fan. Perfect!
