Format: Audio CD
Danu carries on the Irish tradition in high fashion, all of the musicians young but already more than casually rooted in the various styles of Celtic folk music. Guitarist Donal Clancy, the son of Liam, a towering presence in the Irish revival as both solo artist and Clancy Brother (not to mention a crucial influence on the young Bob Dylan), comes from a particularly prominent musical heritage, but the other band members all have their own impressive resumes. The music, bright, skillfully executed, and entirely acoustic, underscores the young generation of Celtic artists' turn away from the synthesized approach that, not all that long ago, drove lots of Irish recordings into the New Age bins. Happily, Danu will have none of that.

Dylan's "Farewell, Angelina," which manages to sound at once wildly surreal and deeply traditional (just like, come to think of it, many authentic folk songs), is an inspired cover among the CD's five vocal outings. Many years ago I heard the ballad called here "Only Nineteen Years Old" as "A Very Unfortunate Man," one of those shaggy-dog songs akin to "Four Nights Drunk," exploring the comic possibilities of marital treachery. Paul Brady's "Follow on" is an elegantly romantic vision of life, love, and landscape, sung with admirable nuance by Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh.

One hopes Danu is a band merely in its infancy, with more and even finer to come as it grows and matures. Meantime, we have this excellent CD in which to revel.

If you are looking for the very best Danu has to offer, try the DVD "One Night Stand." It is probably one of the finest offerings in the genre of Irish traditional music currently available. It is a filmed performance in front of a very enthusiastic audience of friends and families.

If you become addicted to Danu, as I am, this is a worthy addition to a full collection. I consider them among the very top shelf of traditional Irish bands. If this is your genre of music, these are "must have" albums. The beautiful "Follow On" sounds like an American song, but is Paul Brady Irish tune with haunting lyrics. However, in track 6 they do their arrangement of Bob Dylan's classic "Farewell Angelina." Newest member Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh demonstrates her excellent vocal talents. My other favorite from this album is the first track "Highest Hill" - a rousing set of reels that are percussion driven with Donnchadh Gough on Irish drum (bodhran). You cannot miss the big guy during concerts or on the DVD, as he goes wild on extremely fast paced bodhran performances. Donnchadh returns to provide excellent (Ulienne) bagpipes for the classic "Coachman's Whip." Eamon Doorley is involved in several introductory lead ins to sets, and provides some of the very best Irish Bouzouki playing to be heard on CD. Osin McAuley on fiddle, Benny McCarty on button accordian, and Tom Doorley on flute are providing one, two and three instrument leads and counterpoint with Donal Clancy providing excellent chord and rhythm on guitar and base. As a group, they have started as a very young group in their first album and have now progressed to the point of being a tightly knit and coordinated musical sound.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Kevin L. Nenstiel TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 9, 2006
Format: Audio CD
There is a rising tide in Irish traditional music. Acts like Lunasa and Deanta are moving away from the simple, repetetive, high-pitched tunes of the traditional ceilidh and making music that draws upon influences of various pop forms to create a listenable, accessible hybrid with a broad and diverse audience. And one of the leading proponents of this hybrid form on this, their sixth album, is the young band from County Waterford, Danu.

Danu's underlying sound is driven not by fiddle and pipes but by guitar and bodhran. This gives the sound a lower-pitched harmonic that suggests Bleeker Street folk music. Lead vocalist Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh complements this sound well with an alto vocal timbre that is almost more reminiscent of American country-and-western than more conventional Irish music. Muireann sings five songs, three in English and two in Irish, and there is a pleasing resonance as her voice bounces off the instruments to create a sound that is unmistakably that of only one band.

Though Danu isn't just another fiddle-and-pipes band, they are firmly rooted in the Gaelic tradition. The instrumentals on this album are mostly traditional jigs, hornpipes, reels, and other dance-related sounds. And though one of the songs they sing is a Bob Dylan protest number (and a nicely integrated and unforced arrangement, too), the other four songs are old beaters given new life by the band's distinctive sound.

None of the tracks on this disc feels frivolous, or like it was hung on as filler. None of the arrangements are overstuffed, despite the healthy number of musicians playing. All the players are willing to immerse themselves in the greater whole of the band, letting their instruments contribute without having to make a star turn.

We had the great privilege to see Danu live at the Saint Paul Irish Fair (MN). Absolutely wonderful music....and they're likable, witty and just plain nice on top of everything. The only niggle I have is that I missed the uillean pipes...not a one to be seen or heard at the whole fair (unless I missed something). I had hoped Danu would have the piper and the guy who sings "Fair & Tender Ladies" (my favorite that Danu did-or maybe favorite song period-it's off of "Think Before You Think")but it was not to be. We bought this CD and had them autograph it...give it a try...it's got some beautiful songs (Follow On) and some rolicking trad music as well.
