I've been a huge fan of Enya's since Watermark. Her music has got me through some pretty horrible times over the years. I eagerly awaited the arrival of this CD through the letterbox, I was not disappointed. "WOO-HOO!" and "WOW" sum up my thoughts after one listen.
The "Enya sound" is there, but this album provides some different ideas and compositions. It's a very strong album with no weak tracks at all. Stunning!
Personal favourites songs are "Amarantine", "If I Could Be Where You Are", "Long Long Journey", "Amid The Falling Snow" and "Water Shows The Hidden Heart". Those tracks are just beautiful and take the listener away from every day life.
The song you'll find the hardest to stop your feet from tapping to has to be "The River Sings", just a superb punchy track! And I adore the haunting "Sumiregusa".
It's hard to favour an Enya album over another, but I've been blown away by this one. Arguably some of her best work so far.

Like the great Kate Bush, who has re-emerged triumphantly after years out of the spotlight, so another great female musician makes a very welcome return, again offering hope for all those who detest the sterility of modern pop music.
By that, I of course mean Enya. Her music may not be as eccentric and eclectic as Kate’s, but her folky melodies, her beautifully lush landscapes and her gentle vocals have always given her music a unique, almost other-worldly quality. Certainly, it is the formula that made albums such as A Day Without Rain classics, and what made her work for the Lord of the Rings soundtracks so appropriate.
Amarantine very much sticks to her trademark; yet again she has produced a work of such beauty and purity that it has to be heard to be believed. With the title track and “Long Long Journey”, it really does feel like you are transported to Middle Earth and the world of Tolkien. The fact that “Sumiregusa” is sung in Japanese and that three songs are sung in an invented language called Loxian only adds to the sheer mystical appeal of the record.
The amarantine is, apparently, a timeless flower. Certainly, this is an absolutely timeless flower of a record. By far, her strongest album to date. And that is not to be sniffed at.

I love Enya and love her beautiful music - no one does music like her. I have to admit that I was too anxious for a new Enya cd.
When I listen to 'Sumiregusa' (for a japanese commercial) - last Spring I was too excited.
And when I was listenning to this new Amarantine I get a little disappointed.
There ARE very beautiful songs - in fact all of them, but the ones that impressed me the most are: 'Less Than A Pearl', 'Amarantine', 'The River Sings', 'Sumiregusa(Wild Violet)' and 'Drifting'.
Some of the best tracks - especially tracks 1 and 5 - are sung, not in english, nor gaelic, nor quenya or anykind of elvish (The Lord Of The Rings), nor any language we know... but Loxian Language - created by lyricist Roma Ryan(!) These are the most sublime tracks on the entire cd and the most satisfying ones too.
This new language - Loxian - you can find more details on the book by Roma Ryan - 'Water Shows The Hidden Heart' - wich is also the name of the last track in 'Amarantine'.
And the great of all 'Sumiregusa' is sung in japanese! This time Enya didn't sung in gaelic! And I love her singing in gaelic!
And the other fabulous track, 'Drifting', only instrumental and it's not - this time - the first of the album. This one sounds like a good classic composition! Yes! Believe me!
The other tracks are good but not so good as the ones found in the other previous Enya cds! But enjoy! If you like Enya, please buy it! Anyway, it IS so hard for us to get a new cd by Enya so we just have to crab it when the chances came.

I admit it, I am a massive fan of Enya, from the moment I heard Orinoco Flow. I have all her albums, singles and compilations. In my book, she was the start of New Age music. So, I admit to being biased! Her albums take a while to make and the wait is difficult to take. However, when she releases an album, she delivers a 4 or 5 star album.

I agree with the sentiments from Paul of the Netherworld, my fellow reviewer from Brighton who, in his review of the CD single of Amarantine, spoke about other music which exists and tends to dominate the charts.

In the desert, there is always an oasis, and in today's predominantly arid music scene, here is that oasis - another lovely Enya album. The title track is quite similar to "Only Time", and the album reminds me of "A Day Without Rain", except that Enya sings in Japanese, as well in Loxian, the elvish language 'invented' by Roma Ryan, Enya's lyricist. The album shows that Enya has again, made most (not all) of her fans happy. The album is slightly short but, with quality this high, that is not an issue for this reviewer. There are great tracks to sing along too, and her voice, the overdubbing harmonies and the understated instrumentation, make this another lovely album.

The Christmas disk, four tracks released as a CD single as well as a Christmas extra to the original album has, again, all the hallmarks of Enya's music, beautiful musical arrangements overlaid with glorious, multi-tracked voices.
