Albenrezension

1987's A Sense of Freedom is perhaps the Wolfe Tones' most explicitly political album. Recorded at a period when friction between Irish Nationalists and Unionists over the fate of Northern Ireland was at the worst it had been in decades, A Sense of Freedom makes it explicit, in no uncertain terms, where the Wolfe Tones' sympathies lay.
