This was my intro to the world of Runrig. I came back to the UK for a vacation to find that there was a lot of buzz surrounding a Scottish group that unabashedly celebrated it's Gaelic heritage. It has been one of my favorites - it is a complete work that is well paced from start to finish with plenty of anthemic songs that soar like birds over the rocky Scottish islands.

They have a unique sound that creates very atmospheric soundscapes and makes for great music to travel by! I first encountered Runrig in the late s. This is their best album: not that it has their best song I'd make a case for "Every River" on "Searchlight" for that , but it is one of those rare records which is complete - think concept album without all the s prog-rock baggage.

From the opening chords of "Headlights", complete with its banjo riff and glorious skirling guitar Malcolm Jones, what a talent through to the fade out of "Flower of the West", there is a continuity. Every track is different - the accordion-led "Always the Winner", the rock riff of "An Cuibhle Mor", the ballad feel of "I'll keep coming home" - but each carries that sense of place, of the wide open skies and the wild Atlantic ocean, and of the people who have to leave like the man from St Kilda in "Edge of the World" and yet who keep coming home.

None of the tracks lose it: Calum and Rory MacDonald tell the story beautifully of joy, loss and paradise regained. They led up to writing the songs by reading Neil Gunn's "Highland River" - get it if you can, and you will understand the perspective even better.

The only way to listen to this is to put an hour aside and listen right the way through There are not many albums of which I can say that: that's why I stand by the title claim.

As with all albums of 'new material', it might required a couple of listenings before ALL the tracks settle for you. It represents the transition from their earlier style of 80's into their more mature rockier style of the 90's. Excellent copy - no scratches - good inlay booklet - great jewel case. One person found this helpful. Stadium Rock interspersed with intimate gaelic songs in praise of a lifestyle few of us will experience. If it's any good it won't go away and there just isn't room for all the temporary music offered now.

Anyway, this is a monster disc: breath-taking in scope and awesome in execution. If you haven't got it your collection is incomplete. Unless you collect bad records - you still out there John?

We had this on vinyl big black cd like things! Checked the songs out on Youtube and realised we had to, just had to, get this on cd. Listened to it while driving around This is a must have. It is moody in places, uplifting in others and even chokes me up now and then I may be a big wuss but not many albums get me like this one.

  9. AllMusic Review by Dave Sleger This album is somewhat of a transitional recording for Runrig as it bridges their four-minute anthem-laden '80s approach to songwriting with the lengthier, more textured treatment found to a greater degree on their subsequent '90s releases.
