Seriously it has been a loooong time since I have looked this forward to a new album. Even put down my first pre-order for the vinyl

Ya, should be amazing. Had Cossie up recording with us last week. Class to see how far they've come in the last few years and completely deserved.

On a side note, seen as Radie is in all 3 episodes so far, albeit a lil airport cameo in the second one, but have ye checked out This Ain't No Disco? Web series by Donal Dineen and each episode so far is absolutely amazing. Beautifully shot and a class representation of Irish music. Obviously prefer some bits more than others but nothing I would skip and on a whole, I think it's top class.

Yep, have watched all three so far. Easily the best Irish music show on radio or tv out there at the moment.

They just have that special something within the style of music they play I think. Out of curiosity last night I went to YouTube and looked up other versions of Henry My Son. Despite being older, more true-to-form versions or whatever none of them grabbed me the way Lynched version did. Didn't have the same melancholic undertones or something. Have seen them live now around 4 times and they never dissapoint. The only downside is I'll never get to see them in a venue the size of the first gig I attended - which was a tiny Crane Bar in Galway rammed with no more than 50 people. That was a special gig, hair-raising stuff.

This thread deserves to be bumped up, the new album is excellent.

'The Granite Gaze', 'Bad luck to the Rolling Water' and 'Willow Garden' are particularly great

Anyone else living in mainland Europe: just ordered the LP through Juno Records and saved €15 after P&P compared to direct from Rough Trade.

Love what I've heard so far from it.

Didn't find it as immediate as Cold Old Fire but its really starting to burrow in after the fourth or fifth listen. 'Peat Bog Soldiers' and especially 'Bad Luck to the Rolling Water' are very good

Not feeling it i must say. Don't think It would really get a mention under another name / background.

Bought the vinyl copy of it last week in town. Not as immediate as COF but I'm liking it more the more I listen to it. I do sense they've become more 'traditional' sounding on this perhaps. COF had much darker songs musically I think. But I still think this one is very good and particularly like the new/original songs.
