Another nice review of the album from Sean Smith in the Boston Irish Reporter: "...Two More Hours is adventurous, compelling and heartfelt..." Read the rest here.
This was the first review of Two More Hours from Dan Neely in The Irish Echo: "It's a beautiful and emotionally wrought album that will attract lovers of good music. With "Two More Hours," Casey breaks some intriguing creative ground. It's fascinating to hear how well her songs work in such stylistically diverse settings and impossible to deny the beauty and nuance in the work. Casey's voice and songwriting are lovely, but really what she's done here is create a lovely, highly personal album with easy appeal. Casey's fans will love it and I expect others – including those well beyond the friendly confines of the Irish music buying public – will as well." Read the whole review here.
"...a stunning and gorgeous recording that seems to capture the essence of Casey as a singer who has moved gracefully and freely through the ages and genres of music that have influenced her since she first started singing." Paul Keating in The Irish Voice
"Two More Hours is altogether a very beautiful record and even the stauncher fans of Karan’s traditionally-based work will, I’m sure, discover many delights in this deeply personal set." David Kidman in The Living Tradition
