"... this is no ordinary piping album…is an elegantly crafted work displaying the finest attributes of pipe music in all its glory."
John O’Regan – Rock’n’Reel Magazine, UK

"This is a superbly put together album. Technical excellence is the first phrase that springs to mind…To many this may appear to be a folk album rather than a piping one, but isn’t that what piping is, folk music."
Donald McBride – The Piper Press, Glasgow

"I have to admit that I am not the greatest fan of the Scottish pipes, (maybe because I’m Irish?). But this album really stands out as a classic. Michael
Grey….has certainly changed my opinion of the pipes and I will take more interest in pipe music in the future."
Mike Ganley – The Crooked Road Program – Easy-FM Ireland – July 1997

"This is an ambitious exploration of ‘traditional’ pipe music with some bright twists. Too many recordings feature the musician more prominently than the music, but this one is an exception. The eleven tracks present a broad mix of ‘traditional’ tunes, with a sampling of Michael Grey’s compositions. For the most part, each track has something unique and often exciting to offer.
Hal Senyk – Piper & Drummer

"This is a quality traditional Scottish album…. has a strong devolutionary and romantic feel." 
Chris Mills – Shire Folk Magazine

"It is a great honour and privilege to be asked to revue an album by one of piping’s great talents…..This is a refreshing album, integrating the highland bagpipe with the fiddle, accordion, flute and bodhran, and is really for anyone wishing to expand his or her horizons beyond the ordinary occurrences of everyday playing and entertainment."
Geoff Irvine – The Piping World
