5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasure to the Ears! 6 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Maggie Reilly is not just a great singer, she has one of the best voices in British music. Her contribution to tracks by Mike Oldfield and Sisters of Mercy add such magic rendering great songs like "Moonlight Shadow" and "To France" classics. She is one of the few female singers who can leave goosebumps with her sparkling, clear distinctive tones. A unique voice that can be instantly identified whenever it's heard. A shame that she isn't the massive star she deserves to be.
This is a lovely album with great melodies, hooks and interesting lyrics with a sharp, classy production. All the songs suit Maggie's voice perfectly. Straightforward, good quality pop structures that after one listen stick in the brain. It's all very easy listening and radio friendly. No surprises which isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes it's refreshing to listen to an album like "Echoes" knowing there is nothing uncomfortable or too clever to entertain, just reliable well sung warm and cosy listening at any time of the day.
If you haven't got a Maggie Reilly album, or maybe haven't heard of her, this is a sure, safe bet to buy. The quality on all levels is first class and hopefully like me it won't be the last album of hers you'll buy.
...Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes a great start to a long-awaited solo career. 29 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The lady with the heavenly vocal instrument deserves to be far better known than just being the main sound provider of Mike Oldfield's best singles ('Moonlight Shadown', 'To France', 'Family Man' and 'Mistake'), but will likely stay as shrouded in dense fog for the foggy of mind post-Oldfield as she was when starting out. Does anyone, outside the Scots music scene, for instance, know she first came to prominence with cult Scottish funk-rockers Cado Belle, and it was there she met Stuart McKillop, who has remained a strong co-writing force with her, and key instrumental programmer with her to this day-in fact, he returned full throttle to Maggie's latest solo offering, "Heaven Sent", out late last year, and a worthy purchase to, and one of the few best records of the generally poor year 2013. Like the many years before it and since no doubt.

But in 1992, when a number of great albums were being released, though most, unsurprisingly, by the great 80s mob of legends entering their second decade of music (Kim Wilde, Sandra, Marian Gold of Alphaville, Sade, Roxette), the newer acts not up to much at all, a few did surprise. Top of the lot would be newcomer Tasmin Archer's wonderful debut "Great Expectations", but, after finally breaking free of a dance-track cycle for a German producer, Ms Maggie Reilly finally cut her first solo complete 11 track piece with an intriguing bunch of European and homegrown producers, mixers and songwriters, and "Echoes" was the very fine, rewarding,impressive, and almost as grand result. In fact Maggie would match Archer with her 1993 follow-up "The Midnight Sun" which is surely her utter masterpiece. but this is the best place for all Maggie fans and novices to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eternally Ethereal 19 May 2013
By Redland
Format:Audio CD
Maggie's voice takes me away to a world of beauty far, far removed from this one. How do you put a price on that?
