3.0 out of 5 stars Tribute to Enya... 25 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I find the Music very good, but then it is not form her, it is something that I miss in the harmony that Enya so softly bring to the Music do like this cd, because it is in the Musicway that I just love, and there is nothing that I can say that I did`nt like, but when I am so involved in the Enyamusic, it is a different sort of Music.
I will however recomend this cd to myø Music friends.

2.0 out of 5 stars "A Tribute to Enya? " 30 Jun 2009
By Kimberly - Published on Amazon.com
This CD is a diservice to Enya. The singer cannot sing, and on one song, "Flora's Secret," she messed up on the lyrics. It's "Summer Snowflake" not "Summer Sunflake!" Flora's Secret was the reason I bought the CD. I wanted someone's else take on the songs of Enya, and the preview of "Flora's Secret" that Amazon allows you to hear before purchasing sounded almost decent. I was shocked when I heard the whole song! As someone stated before, the singer sometimes sounds out of breath, and like she have a hard time with the notes. Also, I noticed sometimes she is not in sync and is sometimes off-key with the orchestra, especially noticable in "Anywhere Is". In fact, if you listen to the whole song, it is almost laughable! An amateur in a shower sounds better than this singer! She is flat and off-key. All you can do is shake your head and chuckle. And it is too bad because it is such a beautiful song. Am I disappointed that I bought the CD? No. The orchestra is okay. I only paid $2.50 for the CD, and as my co-worker said, "You get what you pay for."

2.0 out of 5 stars Something different but a bit misguided 29 Jun 2008
By racapowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
That previous reviewer is correct - we shouldn't be expecting Enya herself on these tribute albums. Merely copying her style note for note means that the covers are forced to go up against the original artist solely in terms of sheer quality, and they will lose in that arena every time. Knowing that, though, tribute albums face their central dilemma - they need somehow to justify their existence with a different take on the old songs, a different arrangement, a different approach that lets us see the pieces in a new light. (Think of what Hayley Westenra brings to her "May It Be", radiant with hope and youth, to contrast with the soft, solemn solace of the also-gorgeous original.)

"A Tribute to Enya" takes the interesting approach of...enunciation. In Enya's usual style, vocals are treated more like another instrument in a larger whole - very often the keystone, yes, but far more intertwined with and recessed into a greater musical mosaic. Here, the artists attempt to shape the songs more traditionally, lyrics crisp and stressed and (mostly) free of reverb and instrumentation soft and backgrounded, making the vocals the definite centerpiece and focus of attention.

It's intriguing, but the results here are mixed. Some of Enya's lyrics have a snappy, clever poetry to them, but others are chosen more for their pure sound more than for their literal meaning. Trouble is, the album's technique is applied to both types equally, with unequal results. It's a delight to hear "Only If" and "Flora's Secret" in this manner, their lyrics' rhyme and wordplay given full berth to shine, and it's interesting to find out exactly what Enya was saying in "Anywhere Is", here sung in a strong, sassy tone. On the other hand, it's rather goofy to hear the "dee-ah-lay-hey-ee, doo doo doo"s on "Only Time" so clearly enunciated and stressed, and it becomes quite clear that many sections of the vocals on "Anywhere Is", intriguing or no, were never meant to hold the center of a composition. The tracks sound choppy more often than not, devoid of liaison or finesse.

The production is below-average at times. Though this is a de rigeur complaint for tributes, Lord, there is some horrible synth on this album on occasion; the music on "Only If" sounds like it came from an organ grinder. "Orinoco Flow" is sung in a key that's too low for the verses and WAY TOO HIGH in the chorus. (It sounds like the record is slipping, actually.) The vocalist is instructed to hit notes that occasionally make it sound as though her voice is breaking, and "Anywhere Is" should have been rerecorded, as the singer in spots seems out of breath. The sound mixing does her no favors, either; the instrumental overlay often threatens to drown her out. (These are failings more of the producers than the performer; they composed the arrangements and put the fluffed performances on the disc. Vocalists in tribute albums aren't usually asked to shoulder this much of the load, either.) I did, though, smile at the cymbals at "let me crash up on your shore" in "Orinoco Flow", and there's some nice harp in "May It Be". And the vocalist, who unimpeded has a Celtic Woman-esque voice, does a nice job on "May It Be" and a strong "Flora's Secret".

I'm giving the album two stars more for the effort than the end product. They did go in with an idea, but the arrangements needed more planning and thought - and better production values - to pull it off. "Paint the Sky with Stars" isn't bad, and there're sound imitations of "Far and Away" and "Shepherd Moons", but, again, it's the original vs. the cover; if I want to hear a good straight version of the track, I'll listen to Enya's. I can't recommend a purchase, but give it a listen on Napster.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst Tribute Album I Have Ever Heard 24 Nov 2003
By J. M. Prater Films - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
That's right, awful, awful, awful. Enya probably has more tribute albums then she has her own albums and this one is right up there with Maiden of Mysteries and the Taliesan Orchestra. This woman who performs can neither sing nor can her producer mix. This album is an embarassment to the name of Enya.
The only tribute album I think I would buy is if Maire Brennan, Enya's big sister did it. EVERYONE ELSE PLEASE LEAVE ENYA AND HER COMPOSITIONS ALONE.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do I have to give it a star at all?? o_O 9 Nov 2003
By Lee A. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ugh! Ugh! Horrible! This completely unentertaining mess sounds like what might spill out the open door of a local karaoke bar, and not at all like a professionally produced CD. I'm disturbed to hear Enya's beautiful music so poorly performed. Nothing original here, either. At least the Taliesan Orchestra's Enya tribute tried to do something different and interesting with her music. This is just a lot of very untalented singing that seems to be making an effort at sounding like Enya and failing horribly. What is it about a dreadful knockoff that makes it a tribute? Do yourself a favor and just buy the real thing. Or sing Enya's music in the shower yourself. You couldn't do any worse than this.

1.0 out of 5 stars ---BEWARE-- Horrid music about.. 18 Oct 2004
By David Offenbaker Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I thought this would be an interesting spin on some great Enya songs. Boy was I wrong! I DIED laughing when I heard this lady sing. Is it me, or does she sing really flat? Someone really hit the nail on the head about it being karaoke-like. Honestly, I think I could have done better with a Speak-N-Spell and a tin can. What were they thinking?

This poor lady thought she was doing a great service by giving tribute to the great Enya, but alas, she probably ruined her name forever (Who was she anyway?).

I will admit, 12 Girls Band did a fine job doing an instrumental of "Only Time". I say IF someone is going to do a tribute, DO NOT SING! No one, I mean NO ONE can have a voice like Enya.
