To begin, Damien has obviously grown into his adult voice and in sounding quite mature, vocally, yet is given two 50's/60's era sappy over-produced solo pieces ("Breaking up is hard to do" & "Happy Birthday Sweet 16"). The female background is so grating I've only actually listened to each song once.
Keith is given a stronger position with the opening piece, but the Wichita Lineman seems like it was selected only to provide a stage-y action prompt for the concerts. Even the opening, The Homes of Donegal, though a good song, doesn't ring true to Keith as presented in "Loren & I" which he cowrote.
As for the other three men, it's hit and miss. George's remake of the crappy 80s song "500 miles" is inauthentic and ridiculous. I was hoping against hope that he would sing the 500 miles of Peter Paul and Mary fame, but alas. Paul's remake of the very recent "You Raise Me Up" is also odd because it continues to be a hit for Josh Groban. Even though he sings it well, Paul's version will never be the definitive version. Final note of criticism, Ryan's "Every Breath you Take" also seemed too produced and breathy - as though created for a stage production and not the album.
Negativity aside, there are shining beacons of "classic" (if such a word can be associated with such a young group) Celtic Thunder.Read more ›
Their voices are gorgeous but I agree with some of the other negative reviews...it seemed that they wanted to crank out an album quickly and I, for one, don't want to hear WICHITA LINEMAN from anybody!!!!
I want Phil Coulter et al, to incorporate EILEEN AROON, into a CD sometime. This album was a bad decision from those who should know better.

One of my favorite Celtic Thunder CD's. It contained the perfect mix of Classic Irish and a few newer songs. My favorite was The Green Fields Of France. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Book Lover

|Who buys this crap?||
A few things, pal:
1) Celtic Thunder is not crap. They are five of the most talented singers alive today.
2) People such as myself, and no doubt countless other Thunderheads, have pre-ordered it.
3) You have given 4-5 stars to music (and I use that term loosely) by Hannah Montana, The Jonas... Read More
