Waiting for an Echo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Despite being recorded at studios all over the world, lauded contemporary Celtic collective Solas' seventh album is one of the more cohesive releases of their nearly 15-year career. Unlike 2003's more song-oriented Another Day, Waiting for an Echo focuses on the group's impressive instrumental prowess, deftly navigating traditional minefields like "Tom Sullivan's/Mick's Polka/The Newmarket Polka" and the lilting, self-penned "The Ballerina Jig," as well as atmospheric ballads like the magical "Doireann's Waltz."

Waiting for an Echo is another outstanding collection from one of the genre's most enduring -- and adventurous -- acts.
