Klein Studio: Steamhammer Genre: Rock/ Renaissance Release: 07/15/08 --- Musicians: Ritchie Blackmore-Guitars, Mandolin, Percussion, Hurdygury, Mandola, Mandocello Joey Castle-Vocals Pat Regan-Strings Candice Night-Recorder, Vocals, Backing Vocals Produced by Pat Regan --- Review: Most musicians go whichever way the wind blows but Blackmore's Night continues to fresh musical ground with their latest album "Secret Voyage". Combining elements of medieval folk with Blackmore's flair for innovative melodies/playing, "Secret Voyage" takes off immediately with "God Save the Keg" a stately, lovely overture which we hear echoes of later on the album most notably in "Empty Words". *** Stars For Paragraph Seperation As with previous albums Candice Night supplies vocals and plays recorder nicely complimenting Blackmore's melodies and the multiple instruments that Blackmore tackles including electric guitar. Night's lovely, expressive vocals give additional depth to the music. *** "Toast to Tomorrow" even takes a drinking song and turns it into a rollicking good time dance gem that you can listen to without being drunk and enjoy. ""The Circle" and "Empty Words" are the most interesting with the incorporation of elements of traditional Irish music in the case of the former while the later has one of the most majestic melodies that Blackmore has ever come up with. --- Final Words: Although many folks might mistake this for "New Age" music it is far more innovative, passionately played and intoxicating to fall into that genre. If anything Blackmore's Night continues sail into uncharted waters fearlessly blending the best of traditional and contemporary music. This rich blend of Renaissance era instrumentation, melodies and rock riffs demonstrates that as Blackmore sails into his sixth decade, he hasn't lost his knack for inventive, innovative playing and smart arrangements. Highly recommended.
