Capercaillie - Delirium (1995) Retail CD
Celtic New Age
Ever since the discovery of the synthesizer, artists have found ways to integrate it and abuse it. Folk music has always been one of its victims, from the watery chanting of Enya to a dozen worldly wannabes. Capercaillie fell prey to the synthesizer's allure as well, but surprise of surprises: they seem to actually know how to use the thing. They are a solid band with good acoustic pedigree, and even though this is definitely pop music from Celtic lands, it is distinctly local, from its mouth music to its reels and jigs. Manus Lunny is a wizard on the guitars and bouzouki, Marc Duff's whistlesmore… are a key sound to the group (even as the wind synths try to drown them out), and Charlie McKerron's fiddle shines. Karen Matheson can rescue even the most maudlin ballads with her fragile strength. 1991's Delirium was the stepping stone to even more lush experiments, but it is still well-rooted in the past, so both Celti-pop fans and semi- traditionalists will find music to love on the record. Only the real purists should beware! --Louis Gibson
