DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

LOREENA McKENNITT (ABO#167)

LOREENA McKENNITT
SONG(E)S
(1985-2008)

This high priestess of celtic music is much more known for her name than for her work and is so often compared with low-quality artists like Enya or other New Age people. Although she belongs in that New Age movement, Loreena's music isn't as poor as her so-called neighbours. Because she travels through different worlds, from non-homeland ireland (she's canadian!) to arabic landscapes in her later job, she brings this easy-listening music to a higher point.
One of the major celtic singers and one of the marvellous voices ever heard, McKennitt knows what she sings and sings what she likes, even if it has to last more than 8 minutes, which is, for (too) many people, a problem... rubbish !

1. The Mask And The Mirror (1994)

From the Priest to Loreena...

What a declaration of love!

Indeed, If it's a bit abrupt to jump straight from the priests to Loreena, we find it funny to try to span the largest range of musical styles

Thank you, Loreena is magical and hypnotizing. It is rare to see articles about it

Je vois que tu n'as pas inclus "A Winter's Garden" à ta liste... Puis-je t'en demander la raison...

Hi, seems like the file is not anymore on megaupload. Could somebody upload it again?

Thanks

I think it's an internal problem with M.U. I'll be looking after it and if it doesn't come back, I'll reup tomrrow.

Thanks for preventing us ;-)

You know, if Loreena would read this, she wouldn't like it. She hates to be called a New Age artist ;-)
