Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the Scottish Folk Rock outfit. Originally planned on being released by the band, 4AD were keen that the majority of the songs should be left as they were, recorded on their 8-track recorder in college bedrooms, garages and community centers, at a time when they "felt quite free and had lots of time." "If you listen closely," leader Brian Briggs says, "you can hear stuff like various band members muttering, lots of hiss and funny little details that you would normally clean up if you were in a studio. There's something about the recordings as they are which has maybe more character and more soul to them. And we're proud that actually these are things that we made ourselves without any outside help." 11 tracks. 4AD.

5.0 out of 5 stars we are the battery human... December 10, 2013

Amazing album. Great band. Beautiful harmonies. Delicious instrumentations, perfectly arranged and well-balanced. Love love love love love. Love the journey that you take from track 1 through the end. There's not many albums produced nowadays that are overall works of art. I have listened from Zorbing through Long Distance Lullaby over and over again. Watching Birds was the song that made me buy this album, and I'm still not tired of it. Boats and Trains is hands down one of my favorite songs of all time, I love listening to it while traveling. Oh, and the album art is fantastic!

The first few tracks are excellent. It trails off a bit after that, but a solid buy. Interesting use of bass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful first album December 27, 2010

I discovered this band while listening to WOXY radio over the internet. They played "Zorbing" and I loved the tune so I looked up the band, Stornoway, and grabbed some of their songs from iTunes and listened to what they had out on YouTube. I liked it all, so I pre-ordered the CD. All in all, it's a good first album. The stand out songs for me are "Zorbing", "I Saw You Blink", "On the Rocks", and "The End of the Movie". Their music is fresh, lively, and lyrical. I hope they continue to produce music, especially like "Zorbing" which includes mandolin, trumpet, and piano.
Give them a listen, you won't be disappointed.
