Certified 5 times platinum by the RIAA (3/96).
The success of her first international hit, Watermark, confirmed Enya as less a singer or songwriter than a sonic architect: working with producer Nicky Ryan and his wife, lyricist Roma Ryan, the classically-trained pianist built vaulting cathedrals of sound, framed by luminous piano, shimmering synthesizer orchestrations, and, above all, the seemingly infinite layers of vocal harmonies she plied on every song. The deeply romantic Celtic pop on its 1991 successor, Shepherd Moons, sustains the same spectrum of hushed reverie and surging, rhapsodic releases, as well as its mix of ballads, floating midtempo pieces, and forays into Celtic and Latin--and it's every bit as seductive. The terminally hip will sneer, but it's no accident that "Caribbean Blue," the best known song here, managed to sneak onto modern rock, top 40, "adult alternative" and public radio playlists. --Sam Sutherland

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!!!
On this album, there are 12 songs, and it runs 43 minutes and 42 seconds. This CD also comes with a booklet, which has the lyrics for all the songs plus some other things.
1. Shepherd Moons, 6. No Holly for Miss Quinn, 9. Lothlórien, and 11. After Ventus: are instrumental songs.
2. Caribbean Blue: is one of the most beautiful songs Enya has done.
3. How Can I Keep from Singing?: Is a very slow song, but has a pretty melody.
4. Ebudae: to my knowledge the lyrics don't say anything besides 'ebudae', but maybe I'm wrong. It's a fun song, done very well.
5. Angeles and 12. Smaointe: are slow songs, and a little boring to listen to.
7. Book of Days; for some reason, there are not really lyrics for this song in the booklet, nor in the piano book - but it does have English words in the song.
8. Evacuee: Is a pretty, sad, song, sung from the view of a 'evacuee' leaving her mother.
10. Marble Halls: Is a traditional song (also sung in Michael Flatley's Feet of Flames), sung very well by Enya.
Here comes a short description of the tracks on Shepherd Moons:
1. Shepherd Moons - Instrumental; very relaxing
2. Caribbean Blue - English & Latin; great, wonderful, special*
3. How Can I Keep From Singing - English; beautiful
4. Ebudæ - Gaelic; pretty powerful, special*
5. Angeles - English; beautiful, relaxing, perfect to play at
Christmas time, special*
6. No Holly For Miss Quinn - Instrumental; relaxing
7. Book Of Days - Gaelic / English & Gaelic; great, wonderful,
I have never ever heard a more powerful song, special*
8. Evacuee - English; beautiful, pretty calm
9. Lothlórien - Instrumental; extremely beautiful
10. Marble Halls - English; relaxing, pretty calm
11. Afer Ventus - Latin; very beatuiful, special*
12. Smaointe - Gaelic; calm and relaxing
* Hard to say why these songs are special, but perhaps because they don't sound like any other musical stuff. There's only one person that's able to create songs like these and her name is - Enya. You must hear them, but don't forget to try her other albums such as Watermark and The Memory Of Trees.
Here on a single album is the quiet serenity of the title song, the easy upbeat rhythmic attitude of 'Caribbean Blue,' and the spiritual fervor of 'How Can I keep From Singing.' The entire album contains gems, from contemplative to touching, including 'Evacuee,' a ballad from a grown child to a beloved parent. Shepherd Moons is arguably one of her best albums, one in which she strikes a balance that steps around the typecasting of genre and simply strives for musicality. If you like to relax, stop, and listen, I would give this album a try or two.
