All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Celtic Thunder's fourth studio album helps further distance the outfit from its traditional roots, swapping out the songs of its homeland for ballads from Neil Diamond and Peter Catera. Like 2009's Take Me Home, 2010's It's Entertainment has little fear of schmaltz, as evidenced by the inclusion of straight-up tear-pleading renditions of funeral hymn/American Idol audition standards like "Amazing Grace" and Leonard Cohen's ubiquitous "Hallelujah." That said, the lads have a lot of fun with material like "Surfer Medley" and "Doo Wacka Doo" -- say what you will about the heavily marketed, camera-ready Irish gentlemen, at least they don't take themselves too ...

    Amazing!!

    For anyone thinking about buying this but wondering if it's worth it let me tell you it is definitely worth it.I've been a fan of Celtic Thunder since the first cd came out. They are different from most of today's artists in the way that they are a group but yet they can stand on their own. They all have different music backgrounds and yet they sound amazing together. I've seen them twice out of the three tours they've done and they sound as fantastic live as they do on cd. They constantly push the boundaries of what they can do and come out on top. Sixteen tracks of pure talent. What can go wrong?

    Great!!

    I have been a fan since the beginning. I have been to numerous concerts and enjoy this group. This is a great CD and the DVD is great too. They are not a traditional Celtic band. It is great to have a CD out there that the whole family cn enjoy.
