Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2008-10-13 
Contemporary Celtic folk from these Irish-American stars. New singer Mairead Phelan adds gorgeous vocals to the expert playing on flute, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bodhran, fiddle, accordion, and keyboards. Solid throughout, in English and Gaelic.

*1. Instantly catchy set of two reels. Bright and lively.
*2. Fresh and fiery story song w/good vocals & a toe-tapping bounce.
3. A sweet, dreamy opening becomes a midtempo set of dances.
*4. Fragile vocals in a lush and sweeping ballad. Lovely.
5. Midtempo pop folk w/female vocals & a hint of country.
6. An old-fashioned waltz then a more contemporary mid dance. Nice.
*7. Upbeat w/great strings (very cool banjo) and serious playing.
8. Downtempo Rickie Lee Jones cover. Melodic & sweeping.
9. Midtempo folk rock w/a strong beat and good use of strings.
*10. Mid/uptempo set of dances, stylish and such great musicianship.
11. Downtempo, romantic ballad with sweet vocal harmonies.
12. Slow and sad with a gorgeous melody and lush arrangement.
