Reseña de álbum

There was some speculation after Seven that Wolfstone has ceased to be an active entity. That rumor was squelched in a big way when, in 2001 and 2002, they released Live! Not Enough Shouting and Almost an Island respectively. The latter was their first studio album in three years and it reunited them with producer Phil Cunningham, who last produced their Year of the Dog album (1994).
