It's probably my favourite cut from the LP. The 6/8 instrumental section is pure Transylvania.
Great song (and miles better than the massively overrated The Clansman).
We now have official proof that it's a very good song.
Traditionally, I listen to "Stratego" on the last 5 minute walk to the beach. But I couldn't bear stopping "Death of the Celts" that was playing.
To me, their songwriting and arranging skills are at a new high in their career.
Maybe it's just a sound bite that only the 80s albums were good? Maybe these fans haven't found the time yet to listen to the later albums?
Just kidding but as you can see, I personally haven't managed to understand their reasoning.
