Haunted Streets – FULL album review by American Songwriter

“Davie Furey of Ireland makes an emphatic impact with his sophomore set, Haunted Streets, an album that finds a fit with lesser known but clearly accomplished artists like Willie Nile, Elliot Murphy, the Waterboys (whose Steve Wickham makes an appearance here) and Christy Moore, all tattered troopers who shake the rafters with their sound and sonics.

Whether it’s a decided sing-along like “Spaces Full,” a surging anthem along the lines of “Flames on the River” and “Fire and Gold,” rich, reverberating ballads such as “Secret Light,” “Who Am I” and “Farewell Returning Blues,” the sinewy sound of “The Final Frontier” or the quiet caress that encompasses the aptly titled “The Magic of the Ocean,” Furey comes across as a well-rounded troubadour—part folkie, part arena rocker and fully committed craftsman.

One thing is certain however—true to its title, Haunted Streets is a spirited entry.”
