A previous reviewer called this CD awful and the music commonplace--not even worth listening to twice! I have to disagree! You can send me that unused CD of yours, if you really dislike it that much! *Laugh.
There is nothing commonplace about Celtic Thunder's music. All of the voices of these five singers are real and beautiful. You won't find any lip-syncing, synthesized pop stars here! Unlike Celtic Woman (which I also enjoyed, but not nearly as much as Celtic Thunder), each of these guys has their own personality which comes through in their solos. It doesn't matter that all of the songs aren't Irish. In fact, I like it that way. I absolutely love Irish music, having been born there, but it's good to have a break from the same old, overused songs that are usually included in a Celtic music album, you know? I would highly recommend this CD and the first one to anybody who likes Irish music, or simply to those who like beautiful music.

I first heard Celtic Thunder on television. Wow, I was hooked and bought the first CD. Not bad. Bought the second and listened to all the voices, individual as well as blended and will listen again and again. It may not traditional irish songs but the songs are comfortable. I would recommend this cd and enjoy it for what it is. Wonderful. I am surprised to find someone who did not care for it but I have found a large following at my workplace.

I have been looking for these songs ever since the first CD came out and I was so excited when I learned it was finally here, I think these are the best songs they had on the concert, not that the others weren't just as excellent mind you

Another great CD by 5 Celtic men - powerful, pure voices with great, intense music to back them up.

The only disappointment I had in the first cd was that it did not include
all the songs from the PBS special.Disappointed no longer! I love this group and this second cd. Everything here is top quality but the songs I keep repeating on my player are the two bonus tracks,"Castles in the air"
and "Christmas 1915" (actually it happened in 1914) Keith's performance throughout these cds is exemplary but especially in "Castles". I could listen to him sing that all day long! "Christmas" is heart touching. especially in these times.

We had caught Celtic Thunder a year or so ago on a pledge break for a PBS TV station and fell in love with the group immediately. The CD allows us to bring the guys' unbelievable voices with us wherever we go. Normally, I need to steal the CD back from my 9 year old daughter who listens to it non-stop everyday. We purchased the DVD of the performance as well and my 4 year old asks on a daily basis "can I watch the boys?". Fabulous performance, out of this world talent and voices, and all around great entertainment!!!

AFTER HEARING THE ORIGINAL CD I WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THERE WAS NOT MORE ORIGINAL MATERIAL ADDED.

Easy listening

This CD is just as good as the first one. These guys are the greatest, and their voices all work togrther. I highly recommend this CD. If you can't get to see them in concert this is the next big thing to being there. I do hope they come back to Cleveland again because I will surely go see them.

Almost as good as their live concert last October in Columbus, Ohio! Much of the material is original by the orchestra director and also a beautiful one by one of the singers. Wonderful voices in the Celtic Genre; the best album I've heard of all Celtic music, as far as I'm concerned!

I am a real fan of this genre but this album is awful. There is no originality and no performance quality that you couldn't find from a local band playing at a nearby holiday inn on any given weekend. I played this album once, all the way through, and was disappointed in every single track. This one goes in the drawer never to be listened to again.
