Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

3 stars DUN AENGHUS is a collaboration of good friends separated by time and space but united by a love of music, specifically progressive and Celtic rock. Presumably they all spent time on the Aran Islands of western Ireland which inspired this work.

The music herein is largely instrumental, something between the ambiance of a 1980s MARK KNOPFLER soundtrack and the majesty of a RUNRIG production, with some MIKE OLDFIELD thrown in here and there ("Inis Mor") via ultra melodic and languid soloing. Warning and spoiler: pipes abound. Initially, a more nebulous almost new age creature envelopes us but not cloyingly so, A more progressive beast asserts itself gradually over the course of the relatively short recording and not so much wins out as energizes the symbiosis "Journey" in particular includes rare vocals and some classic prog aspects like washes of organ and assertive bass lines. "Elders Tale of Aran Part 2" is an uplifting jewel propelled by sparkling lead guitar and percussion.

Whatever obstacles the members of DUN AENGHUS may have faced to achieve this unlikely result, they should know that it has not fallen on deaf ears. Let's have some more tales.

Thanks to kenethlevine (written by svetonio) for the artist addition.
