 1995年から始まったシリーズも四作目、総合プロデュースを手がけるナイトノイズのマイケル・オドネルも、グループ、旧友とのソロ、ゲストなどなどで相変わらずの八面六臂の活躍ですなかなかニュー・アルバムを発表してくれませんが、実はナイトノイズのアルバムに、ステージのように様々なアーティストが参加してくれていると考えると、このシリーズ自体がナイトノイズのアルバムと思っても良いのでは?(笑)
  今回は大御所、ダイアー・ストレイツのマーク・ノップラーが参加しているのが目玉でしょう!(1996年にリリースされた『GOLDEN HEART』はアイリッシュトラッドの香りが漂う名作です)。今作では、彼のアルバムにゲストで参加していたイリアン・パイプス(Uilleann Pipes)のLiam O'flynnへのお返しでの参加なのかもしれません。
