Two years in the making, The Haggis Horns return with their 5th album in the shape of ‘Stand Up For Love’. Horn man Malcolm Strachan impressed s with his superb solo album a few months back and he’s back with the band for this tough nine-track soul/funk album. John McCallum returns on vocal duties on a set heavily influenced by the likes of Kool & The Gang, Fred Wesley & The JB’s, The Blackbyrds, The Fatback Band, and more. The instrumental burner ‘Haggis Express’ is a killer with wiry keys, sharp horns and a driving groove, ‘Suzy Traffic’ bounces while the thumping ‘Shoulder To Shoulder’ is another highlight. The sneaking vibe of ‘Nothing But Love In The End’ is a more laid back, soulful moment, they show another side with the reggae flavoured title-track while the rasping instrumental ‘Burning’ again shows the band firmly on the one. The easy flowing soulful ‘Give It Up’ (Don’t Take Part In The Madness)’ is a fitting way to end a very good album. Recommended.
