Alestorm No Grave But The SeaNo Grave But the Sea displays all of Alestorm’s charm and Scottish wit. As expected, the music is epic and overblown.

As for the lyrics? Let’s say Disney won’t be welcoming the band into the fold. Alestorm are nothing but fun – their live shows are brimming with good times, but they do take the craft seriously. After a decade, the band has certainty excelled as musicians and this experience finds them moving from some intensely heavy moments to sea shanty-like themes without missing a beat. No Grave But the Sea is entertaining, and that’s not a bad thing.
