This cd features the current lineup: Emmet Cahill, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, Damian McGinty and Michael O'Dwyer.  There is also a song featuring each of these former CT members: George Donaldson, Daniel Furlong, Paul Byrom and Keith Harkin.

From the very first song on this cd to the last, it is filled with beautiful and inspiring songs. One of my favorites is Damian singing 'Feels Like Home To Me'.  I had never heard this song before but I can say without a doubt that Damian nails it.

When Celtic Thunder joins together on 'May The Road Rise To Meet You', it is musical perfection. This one is an absolute must-listen!!  Again, this is another that I had never heard before but it has definitely become a favorite.

I could not talk about this cd without mentioning 'The Voyage'. George was and always will be one of my favorite singers and this song is so beautiful. I love that they added this, keeping his legacy and memory very much alive. 'In The Garden' is one of my favorite hymns, so I was looking forward to hearing this track. Let's just say Emmet's version of this song is fantastic, the best I've ever heard!!! Lastly, the final song on this cd, 'You'll Never Walk Alone', has been a longtime personal favorite of mine. I love their nod to the old musicals/music of yesteryear.
