Paul Mounsey does it again, 23 Jan 2006 Reviewer: A music fan The fifth Paul Mounsey release doesn't disappoint. If you have any of the "Nahoo" recordings in your collection you will love this! It doesnt suffer from being a commissioned recording and in fact if anything appears to benefit from the musical links appearing from time to time. You dont need to speak Gaelic to appreciate the beautiful female vocals on this recording (and in deed if you dont the label will forward you English translations)- but the highlight has to be the almost trance like track "Time" read by poet Kevin McNeil where you almost look over your shoulder to see if indeed it is catching up on you! Lets have more of this from the traditional music world. Amazon.co.uk
