Winning Celtic crusaders Gaelic Storm return with the How Are We Getting Home?, which premieres on the band's own label. Recorded in Nashville, it features some of the band's strongest material yet, much of the 15 originals co-written with some of Music City's finest. As a special bonus, Nanci Griffith drops by to sing along.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
The band that played on the Titanic -- at least in the movie version of the tale -- has managed to build on that invaluable exposure. While there is some traditional music on here, perfectly competently played, the real focus is on Gaelic Storm's own material. They touch on themes that seem endemic to the Irish -- homesickness and drinking, for the most part -- in a musical blend that takes ideas from the tradition and mixes them with generally uptempo acoustic rock that's never offensive (unlike, say, the Pogues).

This is absolutely the best work that Gaelic Storm has done so far. Their talent, and lively on stage performance really shine through here to create a great album!

This is the kind of CD you are not embarrassed to play while your windows are rolled down in your car! This CD is so original compared to all the trash that is being heard on the radio today. "Pina Colada in a Pint Glass" is one of my favorites. This song has a wonderful traditional Celtic feel, but with a today twist. I recommend this album to anyone who loves Celtic music!

Much anticipated by all Gaelic Storm fans the wait is over and worth it. You certainly don't have to be Irish to be drawn into the Storm's energy, comedy, and above all the talents of each and every band member. They have done it again on their new release "How Are We Getting Home?" The story behind the title and the picture of green monkeys is told through the songs. Nanci Griffith makes a guest star appearance on "Tear Upon the Rose" and adds to even more talent to the lineup. This CD was worth the wait and tops off their eclectic anthology. They are fantastic live but this CD will do the trick until you get the chance! You don't want to pass this raucous good time album up!

Gaelic Storm has finally released their much anticipated 5th album. Gaelic Storm remains true to their Celtic sound, however they have incorporated a more diverse sound, and we hear more of the band members singing. I strongly suggest you take time to read the notes about each track. Is there anything sweeter than Patrick's niece Lily asking if the sun ever shines in Ireland? This album comes complete with 15 number one hits! What more can be said? Exactly as I expected - FANTASTIC!

At first listen I was blown away, the sound quality exceded the previous albums and the songs are cleverly written, this band you have to see live to really experience all they have to offer, but until then, this CD will have to do. And Nanci Griffith... very cool.

Who would have thought they could get it better. They totally captivate their audience with a such high energy and talent. The best Irish performers I have ever heard. This is without a doubt their best work to date. Buy this, you deserve it! I play it in my car all the time Uplifting!
