Even more than its predecessor, the aptly titled Dart to the Heart eschews the heavier, more political tendencies that had become synonymous with Bruce Cockburn's music for more than a decade, returning to a more personal, introspective side. The opening track, "Listen for the Laugh," a horn-driven rocker that wouldn't have been out of place on many of his recordings during the '80s, and the almost joyful finality of "Tie Me at the Crossroads," bookend what is primarily more subdued material, including the tender second track, "All the Ways I Want You," which more suitably sets the tone for the album. And though it may not possess the intensity or power of his early-'80s output, Dart to the Heart comes with nearly a quarter century of experience behind it, bringing an insight, depth, and maturity to Cockburn's ventures into love and the mystic. Still, there's just enough outrage and frustration to keep things interesting. Musically, T-Bone Burnett's sympathetic production tastefully and engagingly frames the songs, placing Cockburn's vocal and characteristically superb guitar at center stage.

Home and Heart is the debut album of Laochra, a melodic folk metal project of musician Stíofán De Roiste (Stephen Roche), from Irish folk metal group Celtachor, released on March 31. Almost forty seven minutes long, the album has nine tracks. Profoundly inspired in Irish Celtic mythology, Home And Heart is a beautiful, encapsulating, self-conscious and poetic album, filled with delicate, enchanting and smooth nuances, that transcends temporal concepts of culture, musicality, belief and spirituality, to fully embrace and create in the shroud of a graceful sonorous legacy the marvelous epicenter of an amazingly intricate dimensional life, where everything is completely compromised with the wonderful mist of ancient times.
