John Meagher, journalist and music reviewer for Ireland's Independent, has given his countdown of the top 30 all-time greatest Irish albums. Given the heritage and the fact that he says he hears a new one every week, to be in the top 30 is quite an accolade. These are the albums that in his view have stood the test of time, and Power Of Dreams are proud to be there with Immigrants, Emigrants And Me – a "cocksure debut" with songs that "pack a mighty punch". You can see John Meagher's top 30 list here.
Good To Know will be Power of Dreams new single, and it has already been been aired several times since it's debut on Phantom FM's Richie Ryan show. Listen.
