I hardly know where to start with this album, for obvious reasons my favorites are Pray, which is also Skully's favorite, Walking Home and My Fault, of course I love them all, but these are my personal fav's.
My Fault is a very sensitive heart wrenching song about domestic violence; I guarantee when the song is over, you'll be crying
Pray is great and more upbeat, listen to the words, watch the slideshow I and posted, definite WOW factor.
Walking Home is just awesome, the beat is sensational, this song totally takes me all around the African coastline,which is totally beautiful, I had NO idea of it's beauty, I was totally consumed with every beat, Skully takes the music to the outer limits and brings it back home.
I have posted the slideshows under Celtic Music in the forum, have a listen, you'll be amazed at the degree of talent Skully has and Aida's voice is powerful, and beautiful, especially in Walking Home.
All the tracks on this album are absolutely mesmerizing , when you have heard the entire album it'll leave you wanting to hear it over and over again, I know; for months it is the one I played to and from work; definitely puts you in a better mood and place to start your work day.
Give it a chance if you haven't already, not Celtic, but one I'll always hold very dear to my heart.
