Another attempt at combining traditional and pop musics with skillful handlings of Celtic instrumentation and mainstream rock songcrafting. Nevertheless, Great Big Sea's sound has begun develop a staleness here due to each new album's thematic and sonic similarities. The album runs the gamut of tempos, from ballads to rollicking chanteys, and it's closing track, "Fortune," is an energetic reel in the manner of crowd-pleaser "Mari-Mac."
