Celtic (or related) albums : Reviews
The reviews you're going to read in the next pages are based on some of the albums of my personal « library » : all are Celtic ones (or apparented, sometimes by far…); those records have contributed to my musical background and most of the time to my pleasure.
As for all reviews, I've tryed to keep a dispassionate mind by listening to them. As for all reviews, these writings are more or less subjective and of course you may not agree with them.
Therefore I must specify that I'm not considering the following reviews as some kind of a Celtic gospel… I've got no authority or no exceptional skills to judge my musical peers.
By the way, some of these reviews can change in time, like we all choose to hear some different musical styles according to the moment of the day or to our mood…
My purpose here is to lead you to listen to some records - sometimes old ones - and to make your personal review.
And also to continue the work of this site by passing culture on.
In memory of Bon Scott, ex-AC/DC lead singer, have a look at the iconic « It's A Long Way To The Top… » featuring the connexion between bagpipe and rock… and, why not, some good news from the band in 2020!
