"This is an album with a mission: to bring together some of the best Celtic rock that Larry Kirwan has heard, and it succeeds magificently. It features some great eclecticism within that focus, and the variety adds to the appeal."
- Michael Thompson, Denver Celtic Music Examiner
"...you've got a fresh Celtic compilation that will impress all of your party guests this St. Patrick's Day Season"
- Liz Noonan, Irish Echo
"Rock fans will eat this collection up and others will, if they open their mind to it, find fun they would have normally missed. Nice to find a CD that makes you open your eyes and reconsider your preconceived notions."
- Irish American News
"This collection crackles with energy, rocking from stem to stern."
- Mike Farragher, Irish Voice
"It’s nice to know the Celtic Invasion, sometimes savage; sometimes introspective continues to open new fronts through open ears."
- World Beat Canada
"It is hard to single out which is better. Every band excels through its own style. And this is a compilation of the creme de la creme of Celtic rock. It’s like riding the kaleidoscope of sounds where everything sparks up and it is hard single out one color from the other."
- Baxter Labatos, The Celtic Music Fan
