Reseña de álbum

Although billed as a Hem release, Twelfth Night rarely visits the folk-pop songwriting that earned the band a following during the early 2000s. Instead, this is a relatively traditional Celtic record (replete with flute solos, orchestral strings, and traditional Irish reels) performed by a cast of movie stars and Shakespearean actors, with Hem serving as the backup band.
