Biography

It is one of the most extraordinary stories in contemporary music. Very few people would have seen the potential fully, when a young slip of a girl from Donegal, on the remote north western tip of Ireland, by the name of Eithne Ní Bhraonáin, first hooked up with Nicky Ryan and his partner Roma Ryan.

It was the tail end of the 1970s and by then Nicky was a well established ... Read more in Amazon's Enya Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply MAGICAL - I Don't Really Know How to Describe it! 14 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Despte this being a soundtrack compiling music from '86, Enya wouldn't have even needed "Watermark" for her to be accepted into the new-age music world if this CD had been produced earlier! I'm telling you, this CD is WONDERFUL! I'm desperately searching for words to describe it - magical, fantastical, even poignant! All those seriously touching tunes of every single track can even make you cry if you listen to them repeatedly; the best thing is, you never get sick of feeling sentimental when listening to Enya's music on this album! The lyrics by Roma Ryan have been beautifully crafted to tell a historical story melodiously and in a creatively poetic style. But Enya's tunes that can suit them so masterfully proves her to be the undoubted queen of new-age music and even soundtrack composers! They're such that they really put you in the shoes of the moments the Irish Celts encountered, both sad and rejoiceful. An excellently produced masterpiece that can make history for itself! You HAVE to purchase "The Celts"; listen out for it's title track, "Aldeberan", "I Want Tomorrow", "To Go Beyond", "Epona", "Bard Dance", "Sun in the Stream" and, most importantly, "Fairytale". The latter single is simply an extremely touching piece of instrumental-cum-vocal music. It's highlight would be that in its prologue - Enya crafts through it with an instrument so mystical, you'd just want to listen to the music and even probe into what instrument she uses! This applies, but to a lesser extent, to all her other tracks, earning her the rightful, admirable title of a Maiden of Mystery in the musical world. Buy this CD, y' all; and WELL-DONE to you, Enya!

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Celts," The First of Her Best! 14 Feb 2001
By Bladerunner B26354 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have had this album so long I forgot when I bought it. I lose sense of time and the harshness of reality when I listen to Enya. I am glad to have the original recording on the Atlantic label that has no title, except that beautiful black and white photograph of her kneeling with her dogs. This album has 15 wonderful, mystical tracks of only one woman, whose music is so unique it deserves its own classification.
No other musical artist that has ever lived has ever done what Enya did with that harp on track 2, "Aldebaran." If you really want to know what the angels enjoy, then close your eyes and take in this chorus of arpeggios and crescendos that will renew your mind and your spirit.
What Enya does with the overdubbing of her voice is produce a layered, chorus-like sound that is nothing short of glorious. She sings in English and also Gaelic, and with either it doesn't really matter. It's Enya! "The Sun in the Stream," "Triad" and "To Go Beyond" typify the purely floating lyrics she uses that make you wish you also Irish (I am!). No matter where you come from, however, "The Celts" imparted spirit is universal--that of joy and peace. It's not religious, but to say that Enya's work cannot move your spirit would not be factual. This is why Enya helps me to reduce and eliminate my mood swings, irritability, anger, the rage from this world--in essence, anything "bad"--and helps me get back on course towards heaven. It's not about being corny. If it were not true, I would have told you. Ten stars out of five for Enya.
If you like feeling good, and I mean a real contentment even with the pressures of this world, then buy this album today. Play it constantly. Use Enya as a "prescription" for emotional well-being. Everything else goes on hold when Enya is on. If you already have "The Celts," well, then you already know.

3.0 out of 5 stars Melodic, Dreamlike and Enchanting. 17 Sep 2000
By dev1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For fans who were enthusiastic with Enya's Watermark (1988), it was tough to find more of her material. The only other album available at the time, and difficult to locate, was her debut titled simply Enya (1986) on the Atlantic label. Although I prefer the black and white cover art of the original release, The Celts is a Reprise re-release of Enya's debut. The album is a score for a BBC-TV series titled The Celts. With that in mind, most of the material here is suitable as "background" music for a soundtrack: delicate, melodic and unobtrusive so as not to distract from the television program, but to add an aural dimension. As background music, The Celts is serene and soothing. Despite its overall tranquil quality, several tracks are dynamic and immediately memorable. The opening track, `The Celts', has a gorgeous melody which is repeated several times throughout the album giving it continuity. `I Want Tomorrow' features a dark and foreboding string arrangement over Enya's alluring and melodic vocals. The recording of Enya's voice is unusual: it sounds as though it is 100 miles away giving the song (and others) a detached and ethereal quality. The appeal of The Celts, and Enya's other work, is not her synthesized New Age savvy, but the incorporation of Celtic influences. One might categorize The Celts as an Ethnic Alternative to New Age. Several compositions are sung in Gaelic (Deireadh an Tuath, Triad, Dan y Dwr), a beautiful language for music and especially enticing when presented by such a gifted singer as Enya. Overall, The Celts lacks the energy and dynamics of Watermark, but it is melodic, dreamlike and enchanting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first CD by the "spiritual and ethereal" Enya 11 July 2001
By Neal Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In truth, this is Enya's second album, the soundtrack from "The Frog Prince" being her first, and this album being released a year before "Watermark". This is, however, the first CD of the Enya we know and love and therefore the first "essential" Enya CD.
Being a soundtrack, the music has a cohesive whole to it and it's difficult to pick favorite cuts when the music does flow together as it does. I would say that the strong instrumental opening, "The Celts", and the dramatic "Bodicae" are highlights.
This CD comes with a beautiful booklet containing the descriptive backgrounds of each cut, and also containing some beautiful pictures of Enya. The photograph by the notes on Bodicae is tremendous...what wouldn't I give to have that as a poster for my abode!
I must admit that this is probably the least played of her "essential" CD's in my collection, and each time I play it, I wonder why I don't play it more often. I think it's because the experience of listening to it is so exquisite, that I play it as a special treat on special occasions. Regardless, this CD is pure Enya and that should be reason enough for buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a Time Machine 2 Jun 2001
By bethtexas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite Enya album. It's interesting to hear her do a musical interpretation of the Celtic era, because rather than singing old Celtic ballads or singing ABOUT the Celts, she puts together a musical symphony that simply makes you feel as though you've been transported back in time to that era.
Always a subtle artist, Enya has created an album of musical "bits" that tell an invisible story of a time gone by. Some of the pieces feature a little bit of gentle Gaelic singing. But most pieces are instrumental only, and they range from pieces that sound like warriors on the brink of a raid, to pieces that sound like women sharing secrets of magic. One piece sounds like a sun rising over rolling hills. How can a piece of music "sound" like that? I don't know. You have to hear it to understand. It invokes a vision.
I would recommend this album to anyone who enjoys Celtic music or who is interested in the age of the Celts' glory. Though subtle, this music transports you back in time better than ballads ever could.
And I would also recommend this to Enya fans, because whether or not you're intrigued by the topic, this is one of her very best albums.
