Album of the Day

Book of Kells, by Iona (1992): I have a list, on my computer, of albums I need to own. It's a couple of pages long and gets added to regularly. It's been around for a while and sometimes I forget about something that's on there until I dig it back out. I went to the list when filling out an Amazon order and Iona was on top. They're a folk/Celtic sounding group with symphonic prog overtones. I'd heard good things, so I wanted to check them out. Unfortunately, it does very little for me. It sounds like dull ambient new agey stuff, for the most part. The female vocalist is very good and there's some nice bits here and there, but overall it failed to make an impression on me. Oh well - strike one from the list.
