4 stars This album is one of my favorite folk albums. Not a poor track at all in my opinion. The only thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars is that it is not very progressive. As a folk album, it deserves 5 stars.

"Strangely Strange but Oddly Normal" - An excellent opener with some odd vocals around the middle of the track. The flute is quite lovely.

"Dr Dim and Dr Strange" - Starting out with spoken word, this track has a catchy melody with nice organ accompaniment. The chorus's tone is unique to say the least.

"Roy Rogers" - Wonderful background guitar in this song. Nice harmonies too.

"Dark Haired Lady" - First part has haunting melodies with nice winds solos. Second part of the track has a nice instrumental bit and a slight jazzy touch.

"On the West Cork Hack" - Rather catchy but not too memorable.

"A Tale of Two Orphanages" - Wordless chorus is beautiful, along with the lyrics throughout the song.

"Frosty Mornings" - Pleasant and good but not the best track.

"Strings in the Earth and Air" - The theme reminds me of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". No clue if that was their intention. Nice nonetheless, with some interesting lyrics and mallet percussion.

"Ship of Fools" - Sweet upbeat folk song. It's one of my favorites on the album.

"Donnybrook Fair" - Lovely flute solo in the beginning. The rest is good too. I'd say the most progressive track of the album.
