Wow...where to begin...The cd, "Rising", by Celtica-Pipes Rock, literally takes my breath away. There is no way to effectively describe this album and band because there are no words powerful enough to give "Rising" and Celtica-Pipes Rock their just due!
"Rising" begins with the title song, "Rising". It is an oration about light rising against the dark and in the background mysterious music is playing...a unique way to begin a CD! Included are medelies of old-time rock favorites such as "Smoke on the Water", "Thunderstruck" "We Will Rock You" and "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". You have heard none of these songs until you have heard the bagpipes included in the renditions done by Celtica-Pipes Rock. I honestly believe they all
sound much better than the original versions...and I know I will not listen to the originals again because they don't even compare to the versions by this tremendous band.
Its time to Rise up folks and get this CD! The last review I did for Celtica-Pipes Rock was on their "Oceans of Fire" CD. I had recommended on that review if you could only get one CD a year to make it count and get that CD...I now have to say you MUST have two CD's a year and purchase "Rising".
