All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
A master singer, interpreter, and writer, Irishman Christy Moore can be relied on not to disappoint, and he doesn't change that here, delivering yet another album that can be heard over and over again to discover greater depths -- and it's very much an album that deserves concentration.
