Album Review

Believe, the sixth outing from the Celtic Woman, features 17 new tracks that dutifully blur the line between traditional and contemporary pop music. For the most part, the group, which consists of vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Kelly and newcomer Lisa Lambe, violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, and a full orchestra, don't deviate too much from the Riverdance-meets-Celine Dion approach that's made them internationally lauded stars since their formation in 2004. Folk standards like "The Parting Glass," "Water Is Wide," and "Green Grow the Rushes" glisten with new age flourishes, yet retain their distinctive melodies, while grandiose takes on pop hits (Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Waters") and inspirational anthems ("You'll Never Walk Alone") throw subtlety under the bus and drive off into the sunset, resulting in another elegant and accessible set from the ladies that's sure to please longtime fans, while simultaneously reinforcing their detractors' ire.

Beautiful

These girls are without a doubt the most talented, beautiful singers there are. They have voices like angels. Awakening: 5/5 Sounds like the introduction to a fairytale, similar to The Call and the Sky and the Dawn and the Sun. Great song to listen to to wake yourself up. Nocturne: 5/5 Sort of the opposite of Awakening. Soft, lullaby-type song, which Chloe's voice sounds perfect with. Sailing: 5/5. Beautiful and inspiring. The Foxhunter: 5/5 Mairead's fiddling is as incredible as ever, and this song is lots of fun to listen to and even funner to watch her perform it. Comparable to the Butterfly on their first album. The Water is Wide: 5/5 Lovely song, Lisa K. does an excellent job, plus I love the bagpipes they add. Bridge Over Troubled Water: 4/5. The girls are as excellent as ever, and the song is good. Not my favorite though. Black is the Color: 4/5. The song itself is pretty with a mysterious air, and I absolutely love Lisa L's voice (even though it's an awkward song to sing if you're a girl) Follow On: 4/5 This song is so brilliantly written and inspiring, and it would be one of my favorites, but the choice of accompaning instruments wasn't my favorite. Ave Maria: 5/5 The song is very pretty and very soothing no matter what your religion is. Chloe nails it once again. Teir Abhaile Riu: 5/5 One of my absolute favorites. It's lively and upbeat as well as inspiring with a Celtic air of fantasy. You'll Never Walk Alone: 5/5 Listen to this song whenever you're having a bad day. This truly is a song from the heart. A Spaceman Came Traveling: 5/5 Mysterious, fantastical, and inspiring song. This is the song that made me really fall in love with Lisa Lambe. Songs From the Heart: Walking the Night: 4/5 Beautiful song with beautiful voices to accompany it. Songs From the Heart: The World Falls Away: 5/5. Lively and pretty. Guranteed to lift your spirits. A Woman's Heart: 4/5. Sweet song with good lyrics, but not my favorite. The Parting Glass: 5/5 Brilliant, perfect end to the album with extreme Celtic-ness. Makes me feel happy (although nearly all of the songs on this album do.)

Biography

Formed: 2004 in Dublin, Ireland

Genre: World

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Celtic Woman is a female vocal ensemble that performs a mix of Celtic, new age, and adult contemporary music. Often compared to such artists as Clannad, Enya, and Loreena McKennitt, Celtic Woman first rose to acclaim with an energetic stage show that shared much in common with similarly minded productions like Riverdance (whose music director, David Downes, was the driving force behind Celtic Woman's formation in 2004). The group's first performance was filmed by PBS in 2004 and broadcast one year...
