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.
