Album Review
Reviewed 2003-01-28
Native American (mostly from the Mi’kmaq nation) a mix of traditional chants/flutes/drums with rock guitars/drums/vocals. More folk than world, but a few tracks worth playing. The lyrics are mostly NA-based themes but a bit simplistic & weak at times.

1. A simple mid-tempo melody w/flute highlights.
2. NA chants back a mid-tempo folk rock anthem.
3. Slower w/muted chants and male folk vocals.
4. Some cool Mi’kmaq lyrics..
*5. A strong rock sound in support of indigenous rights.
6. Big vocals. A song in honor of grandmothers.
*7. Trad. chants & drums. Very cool.
*8. Upbeat rock w/chants in the back. Lots of guitars.
9. Cedar flute, sea noises, guitar. A bit new agey.
10. Rather smarmy song about prejudice. Mid-tempo.
11. Mid-tempo folk rock song about ancestors.
*12. Traditional drum circle w/chants.
