Weekly Vinyl – Macalla

28 Aug


Clannad was a band that one heard over and over at many parties back in the late eighties. I have not heard this band’s music since – I think.
I was surprised when listening to this album. I was expecting Celtic mysticism and melodically meandering music.
What you have here is rather standard mid-80s pop. It’s OK but not amazing. I was looking forward to some Enya type music – she, Enya, is related to several of Clannad members and was a member of the band.
But she’s not here on this album.
