WOLFSTONE: Pick of the Litter


An excellent place to start getting into Wolfstone’s brand of rock ‘n’ reel. As with Horslips before them, Wolfstone’s approach is to blend traditional Celtic themes with more contemporary rock instrumentation and songwriting, resulting in a raucous end result. Unlike Horslips, however, Wolfstone have no ambitions to crack the pop charts as such, so never lose sight of the Celtic and folk origins of their work. What does get lost on occasion is their drive — 1996’s The Half Tail was an unusually weak effort. — Steven McDonald, All Music Guide
