One of my all-time favorite albums. Some of the most creative music you'll ever hear. I've got it on a tape, and am glad to find it here so I can download it for my mp3 player!

A Masterpiece...

I bought this back in 93 and played the hell out of it. "He Mandu" "Hoireann O" "Maudit" are standouts but... "So Step Off" is a smokin' jam of the highest order! I've played about 400+ times over the years. This is great stuff!

Not Bad!

I have the habit of randomly picking a cd to buy and I bought this because I listened to a clip of the song "Birnam" which I thought sounded beautiful. I love the diversity between Rowan's and Joyce's voices. You get the Celtic flavor of "He Mandu" to the wise words of "Milking the Cow" My Fav Songs: "Milking The Cow", So Step Off, and Birnam

They Say All Music Guide

Though in a very different way, Mouth Music’s sophomore effort is every bit as satisfying as the band’s debut. The differences are several: first, the exquisite Talitha MacKenzie is gone, replaced by the equally and separately fine Michaela Rowan and Jackie Joyce, one of whom brings the Celtic vocal inflections that otherwise would have gone missing with MacKenzie, and the other of whom brings in an interesting Franco/pan-African twist that energizes the gently churning “Birnam” and the loping “Maudit.” Second, bandleader Martin Swan is clearly looking beyond the Celt-funk fusion he defined on the debut album, so this time we get a curiously compelling vegetarian anthem based on a Xhosa chant and the aforementioned French poetry, as well as the usual adaptations of traditional puirt-a-beul for which the band is named. The album closes with a gorgeous and deliriously funky live track called “So Step Off,” during which Swan charmingly addresses the listener as “y’all.” – Rick Anderson
