Irish Music Magazine

……"Midnight Courts third album captures both their on stage exuberance and their imaginative yet subtle musical creativity in one dynamic package. Their collective recipe is based on tight traditional music played on accordion, fiddle and bouzouki, laced with original compositions and song from Irish and American sources."

Havelberger Volksblatt

……‘The boys from Midnight Court refuse to be pushed into one of the many Irish Folk drawers. The title production “Ring the like hell”, jumps back and forth between opulent and unplugged, offering the happy owners a diversified listening pleasure..... Irish music with a bite!”


……“The third album from Midnight Court, a band that vehemently fights against being looked upon a s a folk rock band despite the use of percussion. The heart beats always for the traditional Irish music but regardless of all tendencies to the tradition, you’ll also find a good deal of other flavors on the CD. A highlight is the song “Omagh Town” written by singer Shirlow.”

Mecklenburg Kurier

……‘Clear in sound and played with emotion is what’s impressive on this enjoyable CD, which will also win the hearts of non folk fans. A special bonus is that all texts, music and chord accompaniment are provided in the cover booklet.”


……“It rings, and who is there? At first glance they are hardly recognizable as Midnight Court, as they have drummer Michael Witzel (Chris de Burg band) as well as flautist Brian O’Connor (Oisín, Geraldine MacGowan Band) on board... but if I had to choose one individual piece between the mixture of unplugged and rockier numbers, the choice would be difficult. From old habits, I would immediately put the finger on the more traditional, where the strength of the three “Courters” always lay and is what they are famous for. But “As I roved out” in a rockier version has definitely something special.”
