3 stars Barbaz Breiz is a compilation album. The songs appear to be taken mainly from Benoit's early studio albums. Those are more highly recommended, however, since they have a more consistent sound and feel. This album contains more of the Breton sound, with the small bagpipes playing behind the guitar. There's nothing Progressive Folk about the sound on most of the pieces chosen here, though it's quite lovely. The bagpipe sound reminds me a bit of the early Mike Oldfield use of the Uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes), but beyond that it's very pretty folk.

For a better, more self consistent approach to Benoit's music, try the excellent Lutunn Noz, which really does have a progressive folk sound, with the pipes and wordless background singing reminiscent of early Mike Oldfield and Pink Floyd.
