Runrig: Long Distance

Sound — 10
The sound on this album is truely magnificent. It is remenicent of the previous album (THe Stamping Ground) with its impressive lead guitar work (Malcolm Jones) and it's driving bass (Rory McDonald). It also incorporates some stunning vocals by Canadian Bruce Guthro. These are definately songs to listen to to to put you in a good mood, or for inspiration.

Lyrics — 8
The lyrics, although not being the most important feature of this albums sound do add micely to the effect and mood caused by the music.

Overall Impression — 10
This album is definitely a bold step forward for Runrig, truely saying goodbye to the previous songer, Donnie Munro, and welcomeing the new strong electric sound.
