    ESSENTIAL for any music collection

    This is one of my favorite CDs of all time. The whole CD flows from start to finish, and the songs range from eerie to joyous and fun. Absolutely fantastic.

    My Favorite CD

    I am addicted to this CD. I listen to it constantly, finding it calms me down when going through rough times. The music tells a magnificent story which is wonderful to listen to. This story tells the story of life and the melody seems to follow life's patterns- mostly good with the times of hardship. The CD takes you through a journey that leaves the listener in touch with their emotions and enlightened. Definitely worth listening to. (My personal favorites include Shankill Butchers, Crane Wife 1 & 2, and Sons & Daughters.)

    I Also Recommend:

    A remarkable achievement by a brilliant band

    From the opening of "Crane Wife 3" to the closing of "Sons and Daughters", a remarkable album. Colin Meloy's music & lyrics get better and better, and the band's arrangements and musicianship matches. Favorites: "Crane Wives" (1, 2 & 3), "Yankee Bayonet" (duet with Laura Viers), and the aforementioned "Sons and Daughters".

    Beautiful

    I have been listening to this CD in Barnes and Noble (where I work) for a while now and I have to say I am still not sick of it! I still look forward to hearing it! They have a beautiful Irish influenced sound with wonderful harmony and fun accoustics! It is a great CD!
