I¿m disappointed alright, but with the so-called diehard Seven Nations fans, NOT this CD. You are all too caught up in your own self-inflicted sense of betrayal to see this CD for what it truly is¿ a HUGE stepping stone for this band. If you actually stopped whining and stopped trying to define what true Celtic rock is you might come to this conclusion for yourselves. Maybe you should really LISTEN to the music before you make assumptions based on prided expectations. To say that the newer Seven Nations sounds like all of the other carbon copied, one hit wonder bands on the radio is not only untrue but also unfair. Kirk McLeod is a masterful songwriter whose style is ever so unique. Listen to `My Little Lady¿ or `Big Yellow Bus¿ again and tell me you¿ve heard anything like it on the radio. It SHOULD be on the radio, but that¿s for the big execs to decide. To conclude, my point is simply this: Put away all your preconceived notions and expectations, pop this CD in, sit back, and try to listen without judgment. Maybe then you will realize that this is probably the most original and true material ever produced by 7N!
I have been a follower of Seven Nations since they were known as Clan Na Gael. I have always loved their effortless blend of bagpipes, fiddle and rock. It seems they have sold out their vision for a mainstream sound on this album. The awesome bagpipes and fiddle heard on earlier albums are all but missing. I was disappointed with this album and hope the guys come to their senses and forego sales for the intergity of their music
Just ordering this now, but I already give it a five. I got a chance to meet the guys in Hollywood when they opened for Cowboy Mouth...they were just putting this album to bed. Great band, great guys, GET THIS ALBUM!!
I've been a huge fan of 7N since the Clan na Gael days. I have to say, at first, the sound of this album disappointed me. The sound of this album moves away from the traditional folk sound and picks up a more mainstream sound. Integrating electric bagpipes, among other changes, has modified the 7N sound. While alarming at first, I don't think 7N has sold out. They are still an independent band playing their own independent music. After listening to the new CD a few times, I love it. The songs are up to the excellent standard of song writing and arrangement we have come to expect from Kirk, Scott, Dan, Struby and (now) Crisco. While a step in a new direction for 7N, "And Now It's Come to This" is worth the money and time. It's a new favorite.
