All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
She's a pop icon in her native Ireland who evokes barely a ripple of recognition in the U.S., mainly because she's spent most of her career gradually moving away from traditional Irish music which still has a relatively small listening constituency in the States and into the sort of Broadway-esque demi-pop that thrills Europeans and befuddles Americans.

Highlights include the simple and perfect "Mo Ghile Mear" and a nicely nuanced rendition of Archie Fisher's acerbic "Men of Worth."
