The Orla I came to know & love in her CW (& pre-CW days) is not on this CD or the other 3 post-CW CD's. Gone is the rich, haunting voice that had such depth. Now she sings like a 6 year old. Think Jackie Kennedy (who has always been a favorite of mine but that voice...).She's now at her best when she sings with someone else as she does on a couple of the post-CW CD's. Then you hear a trace of that depth & richness that were so uniquely hers. But solo, she's reverted back to childhood. She's also mostly substituted her harp for percussion. She was my favorite CW of all time so I kept buying her CD's hoping she'd stop this childlike manner of singing but 4 is enough. If I had never heard Orla's rich, full of depth voice, I might feel differently but I did hear that voice-often-both on the CW & pre-CW CD's and in person 5 times so I know she can do it (apparently her speaking voice, like Jackie's, is soft & childlike & she can't help that)-she just doesn't anymore. There are some songs on this CD that were on prior CD's & the difference is like night & day & not in a good way.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
