All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
With their lush and frequently downright funky arrangements of tunes both traditional and modern and their habit of utilizing electric and electronic instruments as extensively as traditional acoustic ones, it's no wonder that the members of Capercaillie often find themselves being compared to Clannad, an Irish group that takes a similar approach to the music of its region.
