for my birthday, i asked my sister to buy me sean-nos nua in japan (i wanted to have the release with bonus tracks). it was about double the price. but it was okay because after i heard the 2 bonus tracks (spanish lady & marble halls), i thought that they were well worth the extra money.
i think i better veer away from talking about each track in detail. rather, i would talk about how wonderful the album is, as a whole.
in this album, i noticed that even after more than a decade, sinead hasn't lost her passionate, fiery, and mournful voice. although, there are lots of times that she seems to be just whispering and singing a lullaby to a sleeping baby, you could almost always hear that hint of contained anger (not hatred)--like an beautiful (in a morbid way) scar borne of a terrible wound. and somehow these whispers crush your heart. it's like you just want her scream her lungs out. yes, sometimes, she screams and make you feel "normal" again. but sometimes, she doesn't.
i must admit that the first time i listened to the album, i got a little distracted. well, when sinead sings a song, you tend to forget everything else--who wrote the song, where it came from, etc--she just transport you to a completely different reality where even "drifting leaves" seem significant and filled with passion. so, i forgot that the songs in sean-nos nua are actually traditional celtic songs.Read more ›
