All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
On its first album in three years, Clannad turns in another set that combines the group's Irish traditional background with elements of Western pop and world music.

Brennan's breathy soprano is a cross between Judy Collins and Agnetha Faltskog of ABBA, and she suggests the latter especially when she is singing in English in a plaintive, but slightly distanced way, phrasing oddly as if she had learned the words phonetically. Lore doesn't contain any individual tracks as memorable as "Harry's Game" or "In a Lifetime" which is what the group would need to consolidate its success in the U.S., but it is more of the same from musicians who have established an identifiable sound as their own.
