|"The...band keeps its modern grooves authentic by following Robert Burns' 200-year-old model of applying original arrangements to traditional forms...This veteran Scottish trad quintet whips up energy while making it look like it's no big deal...the sell-out crowd is dancing behind the soundboard. Malcolm brings his own variety of laconic cool, 'The Wisest Fool' has a sweet choral hook that hands off to Cambell's border pipes, backed by a funky conga groove, fiddle, bass, and even a harmonica backbeat. Much of the melodic engine is driven by Rory Campbell, an extraordinary Scots border piper and whistler. He cranks out original pipe tunes at an alarming rate, his writing infused with fire and authenticity."
