AllMusic Review by

Celtic Passion: The Songs of Roy Orbison is far less fascinating in execution than in concept. While these Celtic instrumental renditions of 15 Orbison classics including "Crying," "Only the Lonely," and "Oh, Pretty Woman" retain the originals' majestic sweep, they lack any sense of their emotional power. Without Orbison's operatic vocals, the songs are distinctly unmemorable, even bland.
