Orion - Restless Home (Belgium 1998) @224

"This is the most exquisite cd to land on my doorstep in many years. Not only is it well performed but thoughtfully arranged in such a way that it almost takes your breath away. Result is everything a groundbreaking acoustic folk album should be. There's no dodgy notes to distract the listener with every instrument crystal clear on what to me is a faultless production. As I sit here pondering on my next thoughts to this review I must admit to wondering if things can get much better. If I don't hear another folk album - and I suppose there's not much chance of that! - this album is to me as near as perfection gets."
