    There's country stoicism, sentimentality and sparkling sadness on the songs. [Aug 2012, p.96]

    Mark Knopfler has brought some star power to The Sailor's Revenge, but he's also treated Bap Kennedy's skills as a performer and tunesmith with the care they deserve, and this is a dark but frequently beautiful set of Celtic-flavored contemporary folk.

    How much one enjoys this record depends on how much tolerance one has for the manly nautical descriptions.
  5. It is derivative and woebegone and its musical twists are seldom hard to predict, but it is also finely crafted and devoid of the phoniness which can make such works unbearable.
