The very first song "Shepard Moons" is and instrumental song and it is very good to start the album because it gets you into that kind of mood. I recognize "Caribbean Blue" from the best-of album and it is a little louder than most of her songs. It kind of reminds me of "Storms in Africa". Other instrumentals on this album are "No Holly For Miss Quinn" and "Lothlorien" and they are also great songs. Also, "Evacuee" is probably my favorite song on the album. It is a really sad song but it has very beautiful lyrics.
I think right now I kind of like Shepard Moons more than Watermark. That might just be because it was the album I recently bought. I recommend Watermark, Shepard Moons and Enya's new album "A Day Without Rain" to all new age lovers!!!
Though not every track is equal to the next, many of her songs are incredible, on this CD and her others...they touch your soul like no other songs can. If Heaven has music, then this would be it.
Overall, this is a must buy! If you're looking for music to sing along to, easy listening, or some New Age music this one should definitely be considered. If you are an Enya fan and prefer her instrumental music instead of lyrical music, The Celts by Enya is the one to go with. But if you are looking for the majority of the music to be lyrical with that fantasy feel, look no further!
Lyrics from Track # 2: Caribbean Blue
So the world goes round and round,
With all you ever knew,
They say the sky, high above
Is Caribbean Blue
If every man says all he can
If every man is true
Do I believe, the sky above
Is Caribbean Blue?
If all you told was turned to gold
If all you dreamed was new
Imagine sky, high above
In Caribbean Blue
This song is an example of her starry and earthy themes to her music, particularly to this CD. It is melodic and poetic. Another addition to this CD is the song, "How Can I Keep from Singing" track number 3. This is an old Quaker Hymn, sometimes song even in church, but Enya sings it with her own unique style. I think the song in itself is appropriate for this CD.
Everything is simply amazing.
