    RQ Review

    Roll of Thunder

    Spiral Rhythms

    This chant album, from a Georgia-based Pagan band, opens with an a capella rendition of P. J. Seale's "I Am The Goddess," artfully weaving female and male voices. This song is destined to be learned by Witches everywhere.

    "Maiden Mother Crone" features a dijeridoo. "Children's Totem Chant," with human voices mimicking the sounds of animals, will be welcomed by anyone raising kids in the Goddess tradition.

    "My Country Tis Of Thee," sung in Pagan choir-harmony style, back to back with Christian Williamson's "Freedom," bring a fresh take on an old standard and on Pagans' place in our nation.

    On "Om Jam," a trance-like piece of humming and toning, a rainstick, dijeridoo, and drums encircle the singers. This cut is reminiscent of Gabrielle Roth.

    The chants on this album have a professionally-produced sound. Good harmonies and excellent timing make it a standout among Pagan chant albums. You'll be transported to bonfires past, while learning new songs for bonfires future.
