Don't Burn the Water

by The Kells

"Don’t Burn the Water-just let it boil. The Kells have the recipe to perfection. This is music full of spaciousness and lucidity, eloquent in its gentleness as much as it is fervently energetic." - John O'Regan of Irish Music Magazine

Album Notes
"This is one of the most talented group of musicians to hit the Celtic Music Scene. Their spectacular performances never fail to stun the audience. Influenced by their extensive backgrounds from Folk and Traditional Irish, to Hard Rock, they create a sound which has a uniquely creative twist to an otherwise familiar tune, as well as original tunes that hit the soul like a long lost friend. This band will take the Celtic Scene by storm with their fast paced, high energy sound, that grabs the interest of music lovers of all types."

Great Follow Up Effort
As a big fan of their debut album, the purchase of this follow up album was a no brainer. Similar to their initial album, Don't Burn the Water contains both songs & instrumental tunes. I prefer the tunes myself but there are some great vocal performances by Kim Rattan on this album as well.

My favorite tunes would be McCoy-heavy "John Brennan's", "B Whistle Set" (including the exciting "Planxty Michael Burke" - named after the whistlesmith), & "Amhran na Leabhair". Pat Foley certainly gets the chance to exercise his bodhran talent on the "St Amator" set. Kim is, as always, an amazing acoustic guitar player and her soulful vocals can be heard on the perennial Irish standards, The Foggy Dew and Danny Boy among others.

Highlights of the album include the aforementioned John Brennan's which is to this album what Si Beag Si Mor was to their debut album. I would be remiss in mentioning Kim Rattan's brilliant cover of Randy Newman's "Feels Like Home" on guitar. Kim manages to find the perfect tone for this song which has been covered numerous times by other artists in ways that didn't appeal to me. In previous incarnations, it has often been performed too upbeat for my taste. (When you are professing your love to someone for the first time, are you happy, emotionally disconnected or are you choking back the tears?) Kim nails it by performing it with a somber and wistful tone.

A must buy for fans of the Kells' first album. If you don't own their self-titled debut album, make sure you pick that one up as well.
