"Women of the World: Celtic II is quite an excellent CD, filled with techno mixed and modernized music of the Celtic peoples. This CD provides great examples of the wonderful music played by the Celts. Being part Scotts and English, I was quite interested in this style of music to begin with, and I am not dissapointed at all with this CD. I, however, don't recommend this CD to people who aren't fans of this style! If you don't like Celtic music to begin with, then I doubt you'll be interested in this, and the 30 second demos do this CD no justice. Natalie MacMaster's "The Drunken Piper", while as I could see had no piping in it, had excellent fiddling and is a great way to open up the CD. Over all, this CD totally deserves a 5/5, if not more!"
This is one of the best CDs I own!

"This CD is filled with many enchanting voices and is very Celtic. I thought that "Black is the Color" was very beautiful and touching.I would recomemd this CD to everyone (esspecily people of Celtic herritage)."

"I basically only got this cd for "The Drunken Piper" which I heard on the UPN show "Legacy" (more on that later). After tracking it down and listening to all the rest of the songs, I was even happier that I found 11 great songs to go along with my favorite "Drunken." My only hesitation with the selections is that a lot are sung in gaelic- which isn't bad if you know gaelic- but kind of difficult to sing-along if you don't know it. I probably would've preferred more Irish (rather than Scotish) artists, but that's just me. Regardless of where they are from these women are great. Speaking of talented women, Loreena McKennitt is another artist (though not on this CD) that I tracked down from "Legacy." Her "Mummer's Dance" plays during the opening credits- and yet another well-worth-it CD. FYI- I don't know how many people watch UPN, but "Legacy" seems to be a hotbed of good Celtic music. Happy listening!"

"One of the best examples of Celtic music available today. Covers a wide range of styles and subjects. Really great recordings. Definitely recommend it for anyone interested in Celtic music."
