4 stars "The Book Of Kells" is quite a special album, following an interesting concept where the music and lyrics follow the theme throughout. It's more passionate than the first album, with more of the band's remarkable talent shining through. The music is hard to describe, there are crosses between Celtic folk and ambient music and Hogg's vocals are exquisite, especially on "The River Flows". Love the eerie pipes on that piece too. The following instrumentals "Luke the Calf" and "Virgin and Child" are tranquil ambient beauties that give way to some very moody New-Age soundscapes. This is definitely some of the most spiritual, ethereal music you're likely to hear. The kind of music here, although without vocals, speaks a voice by itself. Open your heart, sit back and listen. It's quite haunting at times but also rather beautiful. Four solid stars.
