3 stars Another usual Horslips album with their usually high standard of Celtic folk rock oozing from the Irish boys. Again with this album we are on the outside of the scope of the ProgArchives as this has little prog contents. We are dwelling on the jigs and other old tunes from previous centuries (if they were not written by the group members , one could believe so anyway) all very pleasant music (I actually like this stuff but in small doses - a full album is too much for me) from very gifted instrumentalist. Most comparisons to Jethro Tull are exagerated IMHO but a few tracks (a small minority of them) have evident links to it.

You might want to save your $$$ for more progressive stuff since you are on this site for prog. Still worth a spin though.
