AllMusic Review by

This Australian quartet combines Celtic, Mid-Eastern, Asian, and Aboriginal influences along with progressive arrangements to produce a unique blend of world music. Ex-Blowzabella member Bill O'Toole provides the Celtic touches with whistles and bagpipes while Guy Madigan alternates between Asian and Mid-Eastern percussives. Andrew de Teliga is responsible for Sirocco's progressive rock inclinations with his electric guitar, violin, and keyboard playing, and Paul Koerbin adds to the eclectic mix an array of baroque instruments like psaltery, recorders, crumhorn, and lute.
