The major departure here (and the reason for my initial reluctance to get past the learning curve) is the inclusion of a string section, played pizzicato and used in a very singsong, childlike (almost childISH) manner, giving many of the songs a "dee-da, dee-da" quality. In fact, Enya actually SINGS words like "da-di-da-di-da" and "dee, da, day" on some of the tracks! However, with enough listenings, that majestic, ethereal, other-worldly Enya overdub mystique eventually wins out and pulls you through to the very likeable heart of the songs.Read more ›
Although you could offer up a million superlatives to describe Enya's music, you could also argue that 'stale' would be one of the first words to pop up. For the first time in a long while, Enya has stretched herself creatively and given her fans some truly intriguing surprises along the way. Whilst she has, in no way, discarded the 'Enya' sound (the title track is very 'Watermark', and many of the other songs feel like they have contemporaries on Enya's other records), a lot of this record is a little more melody-based than atmosphere-based. Becoming too commercial? Bowing to pressure? Selling out? No, none of those ... simply realising that her talents do not mean she can't produce an infectiously hummable tune.
The first single, 'Only Time', is vintage but beautiful Enya (check out the slightly peppier remix on the single of the same name), whilst five tracks into the disc 'Deora Ar Mo Chroi' is a forgettable snorefest. Every other track on the album, however, has a far brighter vibe than anything Enya has ever captured on record before. 'Flora's Secret' is a beautiful tribute to spring romances, referencing 'lovers in the long grass', whilst 'Fallen Embers' becomes the perfect track for those cold nights with your partner in front of a crackling fire. Despite a career of almost fifteen years, Enya has not lost her for magical music which can evoke a time and place in the blink of an eye.Read more ›

Ever since I started listening to Enya many years ago, I always watch for her new releases and re-release of her previous music. Read morePublished on Dec 24 2013 by bill mullen, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Had lost my original and got this to replace it. One I have to keep in my collection. Would suggest this to anyone who loves so easy listening soulful music.Published on Dec 17 2012 by Victoria MacDonald
