Wow, could Celtic Thunder have picked a better name for this British Isles excursion? That name could sum up these nostalgic romantics' career, but this album in particular is an homage to the musical mythologies that frame the group's own aesthetic story: The first half is all sweeping aural spectacle and Ireland-on-ice showiness. But things get ... interesting with a straight-up cover of Aaron Copland's "Hoedown" that segues into Hollywood symphonies, Gregorian vocal jazz and even country. In short, it's the legend of Celtic Thunder, told through its musical touchstones.
