All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
A new album from one of the best Irish bands is always a welcome treat. The aim behind Redwood -- recorded in a ten-day break from Lúnasa's 2002 U.S. tour -- was to re-create the feel of their live set in the studio. And they succeed beautifully in that. There's a rare fire and flow to the music -- a piece like "Two-Fifty to Vigo" just slides along smoothly. There's plenty of risk-taking in the arrangements, such as using three whistles on "Spoil the Dance," or the duet between flute and fiddle on the gorgeous "Harp and Shamrock."

Lúnasa is masterful at finding good tunes, be they traditional or mod just witness the wonderful "Lady Ellen" that's simply sweeping. The musicianship is beyond question -- anyone who can make parts as complex as theirs sound easy is highly skilled, indeed. To hear them roar through "Temple Hill" is an absolute joy, negotiating the tricky turns of the melody at a dangerous speed. All the sets sparkle, broken in by being played in concert, the musicians thoroughly familiar with the material, and with what everyone else is going to play. Their previous albums have shown their intent to push Irish music a little and not be satisfied with the status quo; this shows that they really do have the power to remake Irish music in their own image

    Simply Brilliant

    As always, Lunasa has delivered a simply brilliant CD. The instrumentation is stunning, smooth and energetic. Complex musical forays seem effortless in Lunasa's very competent hands. The only drawback to the CD is that it doesn't go on for hours!
