Thread Name: Chieftains' new album disappointing
Subject: Chieftains' new album disappointing
The new album Voice of Ages dropped throught the letterbox this morning. Much anticipation followed by disappointment. I'll forgive The Chieftains almost anything but the cheesy tracklist is a severe test of loyalty. I hope the line-up of media-friendly guests results in healthy sales because if any band deserves a decent payday it's this one - but most of the whiny nu-folk and country performers on this album don't deserve to be in such exalted company - The Carolina Chocolate Drops excepted.
