Recorded in her native Galway in 1995, this live date was originally released in Europe a year prior to Coughlan's 1997 American debut, After the Fall; the Irish torch singer is in fine form throughout, her voice resonating with real pain and heartbreak on tracks like "Sweet Victim" and "Blue Surrender." The highlight is the devastating "Magdalen Laundry," based on a true story detailing the plight of a number of unwed mothers sent into exile by the Catholic Church decades ago. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
