What are they thinking???
, March 14, 2010
This review is from: It's Entertainment! (Audio CD)
I can not say enough good things about Celtic Thunder...I love, love, love them!!! I like their voices singularly, I think they are amazing as a group. I have been to numerous concerts, have every CD and DVD they have produced and listen to them all the time. I was very excited to order this CD and DVD as well. However, this whole "It's Entertainment" thing is one great big letdown! Based on song choices for this CD it almost makes one question their talent - only because these are the WRONG SONGS for them to be singing!!! It sounds like bad knock offs of the original songs which happen to be old pop songs from America. The selling point of this group is that they are Irish and their American fans love them for that and that is what we embrace about them. The Irish ballads are what we love. We can watch American Idol to see lame renditions off the pop charts. It's songs like "Ireland", "Take Me Home", "A Bird Without Wings", etc. that we love so much. Please leave the Beach Boys, Neil Diamond and Bryan Adams out of it, they are a bad fit! Even as a huge fan I would not recommend spending your money on this whole production - I have noooooo idea what Sharon Browne was thinking on this whole thing. It's terrible in my opinion.
