"HEARTBEATS ACCELERATING" :

1 Heartbeats Accelerating 2 I Eat Dinner 3 Rainbow Ride 4 Mother Mother 5 Love Is 6 DJ Serenade 7 I'm Losing You 8 Hit and Run Love 9 Leave Me Be 10 St. James Hospital (Cowboys Lament)

This album represents a maturing on the part of this team from their original folk roots. This album is tightly conceived, and if it lakes the brightness of their first album, it has gained a great deal of depth and musicality. Also notable is their continued use of material from Phillippe Tatarchef (Rainbow Ride and D.J. Serenade), whose lyrics always surprise and intrigue. There is an intelligence in their musical choices that belies the apparent simplicity of their songs. In a way Heartbeats Accelerating is about the exquisite contrast between the excitement of the title cut and the anguish of I Eat Dinner - both songs that are, at the core about love that is somewhere else, but one talks about anticipation and other about loss and regret. The McGarrigle's use this tension brilliantly right through to the final chorus of St. James Hospital. Love blooms and proceeds inevitably to some final injury. 

The arrangements are often quite subtle and varied. The two voices, with their nature slightly edgy twang, can move from French chanson styling to pure country without missing a beat. Always though, they are two gentle voices that stand out, even in a storm. This is a sensitive, if somewhat sad album that stand up well to repeated listening.

"THE McGARRIGLE HOUR" :

1 Schooldays 2 Skip Rope Song 3 Gentle Annie 4 Alice Blue Gown 5 Porte en Arrière 6 What'll I Do? 7 Dig My Grave 8 Cool River 9 Heartburn 10 Nacl (Sodium Chloride) 11 Bon Voyage 12 Allez-Vous En 13 Green Green Rocky Road 14 Young Love 15 Year of the Dragon 16 Forever and the Same 17 Talk to Me of Mendocino 18 Baltimore Fire 19 Johnny's Gone to Hilo 20 Time on My Hands 21 Goodnight Sweetheart

This family affair CD represents the best in traditional music, incorporating such standards as "What'll I do?" with even earlier songs such as "Alice Blue Gown" and the extremely poignant "Gentle Annie." These songs really do take the listener back to an idealized past, in much the same way the early Randy Newman did in songs such as "Dayton, Ohio." The era the songs come from may not really have been that simple or innocent, but it's easy to be lulled by the McGarrigles into believing so.The males in the family don't come across quite as splendidly, and contribute to a bit of uneveness on the compilation. This is particularly true of Rufus, a very good performer in his own right, but not featured to great effect here. The chemistry song and "Heartburn" come across as contrived attempts at cleverness, especially when contrasted with the abundance of great understated material on the rest of the CD. Loudon does contribute to one of the true highlights of the sessions in his duet with Annie on "Young Love." It's the best rendition of the song I've heard. 

In all, this is a heartfelt outpouring of song from an immensely gifted family of musicians. If one didn't believe in the power of genes before hearing this CD, one listen is enough to convince.
