Yeah you know the drill, but after you have made your choice I not quite sure how you get the electricity to actually play the CDs, let alone find a stereo.
This album is one of my favourite of all time, with a couple of years living at the top of my personal listening list.
This is what modern folk music is about, great rhythms, excellent instrumentation and catchy yet interesting lyrics. Their other albums are also pretty good, from both before and after this, but this in my opinion if their best.
Every song on the album is unique, but every song is great, which is not something I can say for even most of my other favourite albums you find on these pages.
Go buy the CD here, and make sure you pack it during any sketchy sea voyages just in case.
