This is as good or better than the first Celtic Woman album (if such a thing is possible) and it's one of the best albums I've ever heard.
The original 5 ladies (Lisa Kelly, Chloe, Meav, Orla, and Mairead Nesbitt) along with Hayley Westenra, sound absolutely beautiful and pure.
All the ladies sound unbelievable on their own and when they perform together, it's bliss.
Backed by a full orchestra, an amazing choir, and the powerful musical direction of David Downes, this is a masterpiece. Literally every song from beginning to end is amazing!
Note: The Deluxe version of A New Journey is a bit pricier but has even more amazing songs on it from the epic concert at Slane Castle, like "Sing Out!" Also, check out the DVD of A New Journey ... it looks as spectacular as it sounds.

This release is an excellent follow up to the first Celtic Woman recording. The voices are clear and true, there are some songs new and old and the music and arrangements are better than ever. If you like Clannad, or the first release this new release does not disappoint. Playing this in my car I am transported to Slane castle, the land of Guiness and rocky cliffs. With Maeve's soprano voice piercing the air, Chloe's pure clear tones or Mairead's lively fiddling, I find this music spiritual, transporting and releasing.
