    This is THE album that Sinead O'connor has waited to make all of her life. It is meaningful and beautiful at the same time. Well, done, Ms. O'Connor.

    I`m ashamed to say that i didn`t hear this album before today. I have always respected and admired Sinéad for her talent and her outspokeness. This album is truly a gem, So well produced and put together and her voice is as usual nothing short of spectacular.

    A haunting collection of traditional voice as interpreted by one of the greatest voices of her generation.

    Such Beauty, compassion in her voice. It makes me want to cry and laugh with happiness and sadness all at once.

    The results, while respectfully chocolate box pretty, make Enya seem like a bomb-making radical. [Nov 2002, p.109]
  3. O'Connor sounds very relaxed, and ultimately humbled by the ancient material. She resists the temptation to use her vocal tics and affectations; for the most part, she sings the words with a straightforward clarity and reverence.
