Product Description

Product Description

The first career-spanning collection of Eithne Ni Bhraonain aka Enya's ethereal work, featuring 49 tracks on 4 CDs including a number of tracks never before available in this country! Orinoco Flow; Only Time; Caribbean Blue; The Celts; The Book of Days; The Memory of Trees all her signature songs are here, together with a 48-page booklet featuring notes by collaborator/lyricist Roma Ryan. Beautiful package!

A wonderful gift, this handsomely packaged four-CD box set (purple velvet cover, gold-foil lettering) also serves as an inviting midcareer retrospective of an uncommon vocalist-sonic architect. Only Time: The Collection is a mix-and-match assortment of tracks spanning Enya's first five U.S. releases (including her 1987 debut, The Celts) and embellished with a half-dozen B-sides not found on her previous U.S.-released albums. Chief among them are "May It Be" (from the Lord of the Rings soundtrack); "Isobella," a hushed, slowly evolving beauty formerly available only in Japan; and "Oiche Chiun (Silent Night)." The set's fourth disc is an enhanced CD that includes 1996 video footage of Enya performing "Oiche Chiun" during a BBC special. Also included is a 44-page, tall-format booklet filled with regal artist photos, song lyrics, and commentary on each track written by lyricist Roma Ryan. Some notations are throwaway items. Others are insightful, such as the unfinished lyrics (about lost love) for the instrumental title track to A Day Without Rain. The order is a jumble, usually mixing tracks from two recordings onto one disc. The stylistic difference between her dated 1987 debut and the sophistication of 1988's Watermark makes for some occasionally jarring listening on disc one. On the other hand, the opening sequence on disc three ("After Ventus," "No Holly for Miss Quinn," "The Memory of Trees") is mesmerizing. Overall, nicely done. --Terry Wood

Listening just casually in the past, the mesmerizing quality of Enya's voice leaves one wanting for more. This excellent collection is a must for anyone not having any of her previous selections on CD.
The complete work here is worth the listen for uplifting inspiration. Enya's relaxing and soothing qualities mixed with the instrumental delight give a combination for soothing any stressful situation. Some of the selections, if never heard before can seem breathtakig. With a 4 disc collection, there is enough variety from the choir like angelic voice for the soul, to some of the more upbeat motivational sound that help get your day back on track. Music like this is the stuff of life, which some, like myself, may have been missing.
It makes me realize why I had to buy this as a set to get a full effect. This collection should be highly recommended for anyone not haveing Enya's previous recordings at hand. As a boxed set, it has redeeming gift quality as well.
Enya: soothing, spiritual, uplifting, meditational, motivational, and plain beautiful.
Voice and instrumental quality is top notch.

There are no words to give the due honor to all who participated in the creation of this truly spectacular arrangement!
This selection of ever favorite songs, arranged by Enya, Nicky, and Roma, from the "debut soundtrack album" "the Celts" to the lastest masterpieces that shall be unforgotten for all time. This CD set contains a 24 page booklet of inspired beauty and splendor. There is much information unknown to many written within, although it is recommended that "the listener derives their own special meanings from the songs," you may find much may be to your advantage in your listening experience. This is a wonderful buy for any who love the sound of Enya's amazing music and outstanding lyrics, as there is a limited supply of 200,000 copies in this worldwide release- Do not hesitate for the time may come but once and after it passes there may not be another chance!
Although I love every one of Enya's songs, it surprised me to learn so much about her, that I may never hear some songs the same again - they now hold a newer and greater magic that touches my very soul! I would never allow myself to miss this opportunity. I orderd this collection long before its release, and after such a long wait, I found that my passion for these songs has deepened, and I now hold Enya, Roma, and Nicky in a much higher respect! I thank them for all of their work!
Thank you!

This is the third time that Warner Music has tried to cash in on Enya's polularity by producing "a Best of" album: Box of Dreams, Paint the Sky with Stars and now; Only Time.
Enya has all in all release 17 B-side tracks (all of which were release as part of a soundtrack, a single or from one of the above best collections):
The Promise / Paint the sky with stars / Oriel window / Willow on the water / Only if... / 'S fagaim mo bhaile / Midnight blue / Song of the sandman (lullaby) / Isobella / The first of autumn / Morning glory / I may not awaken / Oiche chiun (Silent Night) / Anrion (Love song from LOTR) / May it be (Song from LOTR) / Book of days (Love song from Far & Away) / Only time (Remix)
If you wish to have these B-side tracks then i highly suggest hunting from her previous albums rather than buy this nicely done but extremely poorly developed collection.

There are a great many artists who have come out of the music world who are unforgettable: Frank Sinatra, Micheal Jackson, Elvis Presley...but there is no one, NO ONE, like Enya! No one has a voice as pristine or that carries so much beauty or feeling or virtue!
Each song on this collection denotes a distinct mood: anger, struggle and then on the other side of the spectrum, love, hope and faith. Her darker pieces such as 'Cursum Perficio' and 'Pax Deorum' denote almost warlike tones, struggle, defeat...Her softer songs such as the instrumental 'The Sun in the Stream' and 'Hope Has a Place' uplift the spirit and instill an unnamed calmness and sense of tranquilty. (What was the last song you listened to on the radio that did that?)
How one artist can cover such an array of feelings sure beats me! You know that she has nothing but pure talent! And what amazes me everytime I hear a piece on any of the 4 CDs, is that every instrument you hear, every voice-the deep ones,the high ones-EVERYTHING is performed by Enya alone! She truly is THE ONE-WOMAN ORCHESTRA!
I received this collection as a birthday present in January; it is now June and I'm still listening to it tirelessly. It's the most beautiful music I've ever heard in my life; sometimes (as silly as it sounds) I cry when I hear it!
Those of you who are pondering whether to spend "a lot of money" on what may seem mediocre music, think again. Listen to samples, borrow a CD from a friend and be carried away into a world full of nothing but beauty! Please buy it! You will love it and cherish it always!

While I have been a longtime Enya fan (since 1992), I have the same sentiments as a few others concerning this boxed set. The music is very good and all, but...why can't there be anything really new/obscure? Every few years when she releases a new album, her record label "thoughtfully" decides to re-package the majority of her songs from all the albums into a new set. But they include very little new material. This is not unlike the trend during the '70s after The Beatles broke up. Their label re-packaged all their songs into a bunch of different "greatest hits" albums. All those songs were readily available on their respective albums, and for the most part, there was nothing new to be found each time. The same goes with this Enya set (and her previous ones as well).
There are a LOT of great non-album tracks out there which really need to be included here. Many of these tracks are easily obtainable on import CD-singles at a rather hefty price. Sometimes you have to fork over around $10 or more just for one or two new songs (and that can add up very quickly over time!). Also, another major issue that the U.S. distributor almost always short changes the consumer! They want to milk out as much as they can out of popular artists just so you buy more product. Why, for instance, does the Japanese version of the same albums contain extra tracks, while the U.S. doesn't?
If you're a member of Columbia House's CD club and have the need for this Enya set, buy it from them. It's usually listed as 40% off the retail price.
