What can I say about the Irish Rovers? Well, I could give my two-hour long opinion, but I'll condense it: they have talent. Their singing is exceptional and I like the wealth of instruments they include in each song. Even Haul Away Joe has instruments. Normally I'd complain about that, but these guys do it so well that I can't. Also, their version of The Dark Island is amazingly captivating and beautiful. I can't put into words how beautiful it is. It's not on this album, but they have many that include it. Even the songs you don't know will become familiar and you will cherish each one. There are better bands, but not many that I know of. These guys' albums are must-haves for any Celtic music enthusiast or just a musician in general.
