AllMusic Review by

Stand Your Ground, Rock Salt & Nails' second album, finds the Scottish folk-pop band concentrating on original material. There are a couple of traditional numbers -- namely, three instrumentals -- but the best moments are when the group develops a singular, engaging blend of traditional instrumentation and contemporary songwriting, that doesn't shy away from soft-rock territor, either. That is actually a blessing, since the fuller production merely emphasizes the graceful lyrics and lilting melodies that distinguish the group's work. In all, Stand Your Ground is a winner.
