"Chains of Steel" opens the tape with a soothing acoustic intro that gradually builds momentum until it boils over into a ranting, insistent chorus. "Wild Western Sea" is a raveup that tells the tale of the Irish potato famine of 1845. But perhaps the most representative song on the tape is the band's rollicking, raucous, pub-crawling version of the traditional ballad, "A Man You Don't Meet Everyday." It's recorded confirmation that this is a band capable of raising the roof in the best Celtic tradition.
