Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

GAELIC STORM

- What’s the Rumpus?

2008-10-20

Another fine release from this international Celtic band. There are plenty of tunes to dance to, although there are a few slower, serious ones too, including tracks 2,5 and 11. Is track 2, Lover’s Wreck, actually a love song? Gaelic Storm style, of course. Although I haven’t seen them perform these songs yet, I suspect tracks 1, 3, 7 & 12 will become crowd favorites. At least they are mine. There are four fine instrumentals: tracks 4,8,10 & 13, with pipes being featured on 8 & 13. Beware, the 9th song is in Gaelic. The last song, The Night I Punched Russell Crowe, is a fun song of a true story about an encounter that singer Patrick Murphy had with The Gladiator. But remember, the name of an earlier song is Don’t Let the Truth Get in the Way of a Good Story! Plenty of lively, Celtic fun on this CD…….J.R.
