    Another excellent album

    I would agree with another reviewer that this album differs from her previous release The Water is Wide, but I do not think the difference is nearly as extreme as that reviewer suggests. On this album Orla explores some different styles but none of them are incompatible with her voice and the result is very enjoyable--a true listening pleasure. I particularly like the songs "Distant Shore," "Bean an Ti," "Simple Love," and "My Land" but I cannot say that there is a single song on the album that I do not enjoy. If you like Orla's voice, I do not think you will be disappointed by this album. I am certainly looking forward to more from Orla in the future.

    Orla Fallon fans will rejoice in her first post-Celtic Woman album

    She captured our hearts as the lovely and talented harpist in the Irish group Celtic Woman, which took America by storm and continue to thrill audiences throughout the world. Now, in her first album since leaving the group, Orla Fallon has given new heart to her many fans who were devastated by her departure from the group with this wonderful new release. She has the help of first class musicians, including Celtic Woman bassist Eoghan O'Neill, who co-produced the album and guitarist Des Moore. The selection of songs and styles varies more widely than her first solo album, The Water is Wide. Yet the beautiful voice of Orla is every bit as moving and delightful as ever. And fear not-her harp is back. The particular charm of her singing and harp playing are featured in several numbers. A first-class production all around, existing fans will not be disappointed and new fans are in for a delightful treat with this new solo album from this celtic angel. If this is any indication of what we may expect from her as a solo artist, we are in for many bright days ahead!
