    All 14 tracks here use Yeats's verse, and while it's a natural fit, occasionally, as on The Song Of Wandering Aengus, Scott's over-enunciation can overwhelm. [Oct 2011, p.130]

    Scott's overly melodramatic delivery sometimes gets in the way of the words, although his arrangements are for the most part respectful and apt.

    Too often, Scott and his band are guilty of lily gilding.
