Brìghde Chaimbeul – The Reeling: Let me just sit on a steep, green hillside and look out over the breaking waves of the North Sea while listening to this on headphones. Take a deep breath and let the smallpipes fill me. This is all just so pure and fresh, unsullied by really anything else. There’s a time to mix things up. This is not one of those times. When the album is finished, you can still hear the pipes, like the sea caught in a shell.
