Product Description

Amazon.ca

New Age diva Enya first became widely known when her 1988 album Watermark sold 4 million copies and launched the single "Orinoco Flow." Her follow-up, Shepherd Moons, was even more successful, selling over 10 million copies despite its slightly lower grade of ethereal enchantment. In 1997 she released Paint the Sky with Stars, an assortment of her best work from these two early albums plus gems from 1995's The Memory of Trees and the soundtrack to the BBC series The Celts. The most melodic and atmospheric examples of Enya's lovely Celtic-flavored songwriting shine on this disc. Those unfamiliar with the former Clannad member will find charm in such sweet lullabies as "Marble Halls" and "China Roses" while delighting in the more energetic "Book of Days," "Storms in Africa," and "Caribbean Blue." Overall, an outstanding collection from an artist who gives New Age a good name. --Karen Karleski

5.0 out of 5 stars Enya. I love you... July 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw/listened to an Enya video (Orinocco Flow) on television back in the early 90's/late 80's - I thought she was... ...nice... ...but a wee bit...whacked. Or tootie-fruitie. Or whatever. With all the "...hoo! hee! ooh! ahh! oh! hoo! ahh! ee! oh! hoo!, etc." lyrics...
Then, a few years later, over a period of several months, a mildly crazed girl friend force-fed Enya (...and 90's country music) down my gullet. Whether I dang wanted to hear it or not. Well...after an extended amount of time of this force-feed diet...I...began to...like Enya. In fact, I became mesmerized especially by "Watermark" and "Storms over Africa"? or...one of her other songs.
That was about 10 years ago... and it's year 2004 now. And except for a rare occasion here and there - I have not listened to any Enya music at all. However. After wandering about and subsequently stumbling onto Enya on the site here over the past week or two - I found myself nigh brought to my knees in tears over the wondrous beauty of this fair maiden's music. It is SO BEAUTIFUL...! And relaxing! And hypnotic, and just plain...good for you...! It makes you feel good about yourself...and life...and just...Everything! (sigh...).
Anyway, also - the site here confirmed my delighted suspicion that one of Enya's Lovely songs ("Book of Days") is the theme song for the "Out of Ireland" television program, broadcast on Public Television. (That I recently discovered a few months ago).
So, as I find myself having been somehow guided back to Enya, on this here Amazon site, I am just thinking...that I may end up owning... a whole collection... of Enya tapes.
My mildly...enthusiastic former girlfriend (who I am still friends with) done good...

4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks For The Introduction To Mehdi June 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've always enjoyed Enya and this album is no exception, but while reading some of the customer recommendations posted on this page I discovered an artist by the name of Mehdi (pronounced meddie). After some investigation I found his site (SoothingMusic.Com) and listened to the samples...I was instantly blown away by the quality of this music and so I gave it a try and now that I have listened to his CDs several times I really must say that although I'm still a Enya fan I find Mehdi to be a tad more interesting. I have them both in my multi-disc CD player and love the way they compliment each other. I highly recommend that you give this artist a try or atleast just go listen to the samples, I have a feeling you'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enya is NOT a singles artist. June 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Trying to review a "Best Of" from Enya is a very difficult assignment. A rarity among popular artists, Enya takes years at a time to perfect and polish her recordings until she decides they are ready, then releases the individual albums as stand alone pieces of work. That an occasional song breaks free and becomes popular is coincidental to the overall scheme of her music. While I must admit that "Orinoco Flow" drove me into a shivering bliss that first time I heard it on the radio, as soon as I got a copy of "Watermark," it was easy to tell that this woman was an artist as perfectionist.
From that point on, I have eagerly awaited the next CD to complete its gestation and land in my disc player. So how does one regard the piecemeal way her first four albums are divided into a "Best Of" collection? Fortunately, Enya has a way with melody, so the songs per se are often memorable outside of context. Much like Enigma, Alan Parsons or Pink Floyd, sometimes a little swath of the album is still enough to convey the consistency of mood, and Enya is of the stature of those equally creative minds.
In short, I have no trouble recommending "Paint The Sky With Stars" to the curious, although my first recommendation would still be to purchase the classic "Watermark" first. But if all you really need is the pleasantries of Enya to put some tranquility in your day, this "Best Of" set will do nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most of her best. April 21 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
It's always hard to say what is and isn't an artists best, but there's no doubt that this is most of it, even if it's missing a few good ones. It's also pretty lengthy at 16 tracks. Included is "Caribbean Blue", "Storms In Africa", "China Roses", and the hugely popular "Orinoco Flow", among many other favorites. Even the songs I didn't know before, I now love as much as the others. I only wish this included material from her last album, which was released after this was. Anyway, even though I also listen to metal and rap, I believe "Enya" is a must for any collection. Her music is simply beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD - compares with Genie's Wildflowers April 5 2004
By Melody
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD and a must for any fan of peaceful music. It occupies a place on my best of all time list, along with Genie's WIldflowers.
Sometimes I wish Enya would use a real piano more often, like Genie does, but both of their voices are so magical that I am swept away. The peace is worth anything.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of Enya, without a doubt March 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album basically is all the best tracks from her previous albums except for a day without rain. Perfect for those who are just starting to hear her songs. This album will stun you. For me. Orinoco Flow, Book of days, Anywhere is, China Roses are my favourites. I have to say that i didn't like the track Paint the sky with stars. But generall, this album is very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Please...
Honestly, we all know an Enya Best-Of should be little more than a CD single.
