Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
As the operatic crossover groups get more glitzy in musical arrangements and fashion styling alike, it's refreshing to find the Celtic Tenors cultivating a boys-next-door image and a straight-from-the-heart delivery. Irish this trio may be, but they rarely make a point of it; even their a cappella version of "Danny Boy," while touching, has barely a trace of brogue. No matter; these singers make some of the most pleasing sounds in popera, both separately and blending together, and the Irish Tenors have a lock on that accent, anyway. It's hard to buy an album nowadays that doesn't include "You Raise Me Up," but the Celtic Tenors' version is different, and not just ...

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
As the operatic crossover groups get more glitzy in musical arrangements and fashion styling alike, it's refreshing to find the Celtic Tenors cultivating a boys-next-door image and a straight-from-the-heart delivery. Irish this trio may be, but they rarely make a point of it; even their a cappella version of "Danny Boy," while touching, has barely a trace of brogue. No matter; these singers make some of the most pleasing sounds in popera, both separately and blending together, and the Irish Tenors have a lock on that accent, anyway. It's hard to buy an album nowadays that doesn't include "You Raise Me Up," but the Celtic Tenors' version is different, and not just because soul diva Samantha Mumba joins in. The inspirational lyrics of the song really come through, and that's a key to their intent: The Celts' message is a spiritual one, and songs of hope -- "Angel of Mercy," "Deep in Your Heart," "Still by Your Side" -- make up the sturdy backbone of the album. Some highlights do break out of this mold, like the solo by Niall Morris he's the one with the high notes on "Caruso" and the threesome's collaboration with Air Supply on a cover of the 1975 mega-hit "All Out of Love." But the warm sincerity of the title song, Phil Coulter's "Remember Me," recorded with a simple piano accompaniment, brings the disc to a close on the poignant note so typical of these tenors at their best.
All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The Celtic Tenors are not the Irish Tenors, the Three Tenors, or Il Divo, but fans of opera, pop, and classical will find little to differentiate them from their more flamboyant contemporaries. Handsome, young, and oozing transcontinental sex appeal, Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson, and Niall Morris capably croon their way through 11 lushly arranged covers and traditional works. The arrangements range from orchestral "Non Siamo Isole/We Are Not Islands" to late-'80s urban contemporary "Ten Thousand Years", resulting in an experience that is the audio equivalent of an exceptionally involving Harlequin romance novel. The Celtic Tenors are so safe that if you were to strap the CD around your head and dive headfirst off a ten-story building, any injuries would be purely emotional. However, if your idea of an amorous utopia is three impeccably groomed Irish lads belting out "All Out of Love" by Air Supply, then Remember Me will be the definitive soundtrack to many a midnight fumbling.

    Attended a live taping for Public Television so I may be biased. This is a very talented group; their harmony is excellent and they reflect their talent on this tape.
