Editorial Reviews

"Invisible Fields" is the third of his own solo albums on Real World, following "Seven Steps To Mercy" and the soundtrack to the impressionistic film, "I Could Read The Sky". Here, he carries echoes of the ancients with harbingers of the global sounds of the future, blending the complete sense of place and culture that the Sian Nos tradition supplies with the modern sounds and instruments of other great sonic explorers of the current age such as Sigur Ros and Royksopp.

Format: Audio CD
For those familiar with Real World's label, this fits nicely into the repertoire. I admit that while O Lionard's sound's a bit more laid back than my tastes tend towards either with Irish folk-influenced or adventurous rock-tinged music, that this made a great soundtrack for a rainy morning commute. It reminds me very much of Peadar O Riada's two albums released over a decade ago on the New Jersey indie label Bar None--like O Lionard, O Riada (as those who recognize Sean O Riada's heir apparent!) takes the Irish language and traditional influences and washes them within a bath of electronic textures at once oddly contemporary in its density and at times even medieval in its evocation of chant and plainsong arrangements.

On slight letdown: I do wish that O Lionard had included the Irish-language texts along with the lyrics he prints in English; the only exception to the anglicized liner notes is his "Aurora," taking inspiration from Sean O Riordain's wonderful poem here printed, linking Africa Thuas/North Africa's winds to what is felt across the oceans in Ireland by this predecessor to O Lionard, a Cork visionary and modernist-existentialist thinker from the middle of the last century. O Lionard, as with the O Riadas and O Riordain, continues the Irish Munster bardic tradition into another millenium. This album, his third I believe, again brings the most contemporary of chill out beats into the contemplative milieu of monastery and meadow. Blending ancient strands into a complex new spiralled tapestry of sound, this is enduring music.

Listening to Iarla makes the world feel great. What a voice! He makes you smile, cry, ponder, want to dance, want to sing, want to lie down and listen while the music he makes fills your heart with joy and love. I had a wee crush on Iarla when I heard him live in Wellington, New Zealand and now after buying this CD from Amazon I have a huge crush!! The world is a better place with him in it.

of such sublime beauty that this will go down as one of the hallmark releases for the 21st Century. O Lionaird advances as he serves the great Gaelic singing tradition in ways that few others can even remotely approximate. This is the sound of the Irish soul aspiring to its own release from the mortal coils. From the very time I heard Iarla, with Noel Hill and Tony Linane in that classic pub-session CD from Sliabh Luchra, I realized I was listening to the human soul as it found expression within a particular culture.

Apparently Real World was impressed by the same recording and somehow Afro-Celts came to be. Alongside the amazing trajectory of that ensemble, O Lionaird has assembled a catalogue of solo recordings that have re-set the bar for what stands as excellence and passion in this form. Apart from Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh of Altan, he has no peers, and perhaps only Mairead may even surpass his remarkable gifts, accomplishments and homage to a culture he truly loves.

In this release he works closely with Kevin Killen, who helmed Peter Gabriel's maginificent SO, and Welsh composer Gavin Bryars, whose classical works come from another world altogether, so profoundly do they move the human soul. The result is a CD unlike any you will ever hear again in your life. Iarla has consistently outdone himself in the course of his work with A-C and solo. How he will or even could surpass the beauty and passion of this release is beyond my imagination. His own songs stand up as well, if not better than the traditional efforts. Gaelic singers will be referencing this disc for centuries. It is THAT GOOD.

Mixing taped sound bites from his family or well known West Cork personalities in the tradition, Iarla creates a sound scape of uncompromising spirituality.

A wonderful CD in Irish and English. Also as a used product, it was in great condition, both the jewel case and the CD itself.
