Excellent couple of albums. Wouldn't recommend to anyone with no understanding of Spanish though. A really good bilingual artist. Kinda rocky too.

Why wouldn't you be able to enjoy music in a different language? If it sounds good then it sounds good, no?

Some people need to understand the lyrics to appreciate the content.

Music is different for everyone, it wasn't an order or anything, just giving recommendations. I completely agree with you to be honest. I liked the albums before I understood them.

Many of my favourite songs are Celtic and I barely speak to word of it.

I'm one of those Tom speaks of. I need lyrics with music, and they need to be English because that's all I understand.

'Oro se do bheatha bhaile' by The Dubliners

phpBB [video]


One of my favourite party tunes. So many times that's been played at full volume on my record player, deep into the night with my friends and I jigging and singing along in a drunken frenzy.

Most recently was last weekend when I heard it performed live by a traditional Irish folk group, five bearded Irish men in their 70's and 80's, at the international sea-shanty festival in Falmouth, Cornwall. We'd traveled from the length and breadth of the country, eighteen of us to visit the festival, and this was the absolute highlight for each of us.

I understand it without sharing it, if that makes sense. My brother has to understand every bit of a song until he forms his opinion of it, so I totally get it. In some ways he gains a better appreciation for the songs he likes than I do, but on the other hand I have a much more eclectic collection because I'm not so picky.

My collection is still rather eclectic, but still based on English language songs. The bulk of my listening is rock, and pop princess, which quite a few people find hard to reconcile. I tend to get into the rock more, because it generally goes deeper and is much more complex. With the pop princess stuff, its the catchy pop hooks combined with the female voice. Taylor Swift sounds worlds better to me than say, One Direction because her voice compliments the music much better than a male voice. To my tastes anyway.

That said, there are exceptions. Robbie Williams for one, Michael Jackson being the big one. I like Mark Owens voice quite a lot too, because he's very much an accented singer, and its an accent I quite like.

I do also like some blisteringly simple rock. AC/DC for example , who are in some cases so simple I can play them on the drums. It helps that both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson have ridiculous and distinctive voices too.

Do you have a last.fm?

I've got loads of female artists that I think you'd love scrobbled on it. Might be worth a look.

Last.fm/user/tom-hardy

I'm a huge believer that women are on the most part better singers. In fact I think I've only got two make vocalists in my top eight.

Nothing wrong with TayTay. Bad blood is a tune.

Not yet, it's on the "wait until it's on sale" list though. :)

Can you recommend some celtic tracks.. (something like your top10) I've occasionally heard some and like the sound but am not familiar with any artists and don't know much about the style itself.

Yeah I know I can google and search but if you are already an expert why not take advantage. :)

I don't know their names tbh, man. I'll take a look at my vinyl collection sometime in the next few days and give you a list. Check out the video I posted above for an example.

It's all traditional Irish folk rather than tranquil Celtic, you understand, so as to avoid confusion?

Have a look at this website in the meantime. Irish folk is mostly sung in English language these days, but there are still some great Celtic recordings by the Dubliners and the Fureys etc. It's pure drinking music.

I can recommend some Welsh stuff. Meic Stevens is very good. "The Welsh Bob Dylan". In fact Dylan himself has said he's a fan of Stevens.

Of course apologies if you meant Scottish/Irish celtic. But you should check Stevens out anyway.

Edit: Ysbryd Solva (Meic Stevens) is a very good album.
