Overview

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. With indeterminate influences ranging from U2 to Big Country Runrig has, nevertheless, created a style uniquely their own. Always advancing the Scottish Gaelic language, they include their customary two such numbers with "Abhainn an T-Sluaigh" and "An Cuibhle Mor." One of their most well-known songs "Flower of the West" concludes this album in typical grandiose Runrig fashion.
