GUEST,Guest - Roger Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly (68* d) RE: Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly 31 Oct 05

I don't get what the fuss is about. The new album is very good, perhaps not her best but still very good. KR is a class act and may not be as good as Nic Jones etc or even be able to out-drive Senna in a comparable car! Such arguments are specious and will never be resolved.

If you don't like it don't buy it. If you don't want to see her live don't go. I've seen her twice this tour and although each gig was similar it was still worth it in my eyes - heard no grumbles at either.

She may have sold 40k in one week but I suspect her sales don't sustain like a pop act's do. Also her sales are through mail-order or many fringe shops so not as many of her sales will figure in the charts survey as would, say, Blue.

Whatever she makes she's earnt it and no-one can deny it's thoroughly deserved.


PS What is it with this 'Celtic' thing? Yanks (Septics) get upset when I think they're all Canadian :)

Kate's as Celtic as 'Dirty Old Town'!!
