5 stars Well, without a doubt this is the Horslips album I recommend to the uninitiated. it has to be an essential part of any prog folk collection.

Trouble with a capital T, Sowrd of Light and The Power and the Glory are probably the three best known songs by the band.

Popular traditional themes are woven into the folk-rock mix. And it works. Sometimes with folk-rock albums it just doesn't pass muster. Here the Horslips are on a roll. The album is polished and the mix works.Sideways to the Sun is a personla favourite, almost as if the Sluagh Sidhe had given up with the world and moved to another dimension.

I still prefer the Tain but the invasions is nevertheless essential.
