Live! Not Enough Shouting
(Once Bitten, 2000)
How refreshing -- a live album that is not drowned out by screaming fans. The lads of Wolfstone have made sure every note can be heard.
The drive and energy displayed by the band on stage come through in this live album, which was recorded in 2000 during a musical tour of their homeland of Scotland. Even during the slow pieces, it feels like the band will break out into a fast-paced number at any moment. In other words, Not Enough Shouting is not a CD to put on when you're sitting down to relax. Just the opposite, this album is fast-paced and will have you moving and dancing with the music. The album contains 14 original tunes written by members of Wolfstone, including "Brave Boys," "Balivanich," "Black Dog," "Wild & the Free" and "Tinny Run."
Wolfstone borrows the cultures and traditions of the band's Highland heritage when writing and performing their music, but their sound is still that of a full-throttle rock band, including a driving drum beat. Wolfstone shows there is much more to Scottish music than "Scotland the Brave" and "Loch Lomand." If you are a fan of Celtic rockers Enter the Haggis, then Wolfstone is a must-have in your CD collection.
