Gallery - The Wind That Shakes The Barley album download
Gallery's sole album is similar enough to enough British folk albums from the 1970s (and onward) that it's hard to say much about it that would distinguish it from the rest of the crowd. That's not a heavy criticism, though; it's decent British folk, sensitively sung and played, with dulcimer, mandolin, violin, and electric bass in addition to the expected acoustic guitar. There's also a nice mix of male and female lead and harmony vocals, particularly on the male-female harmonized duet of the sad "Queen of Hearts," the record's best track.
