Product Description

The most endangered species on earth is Man. Those who are worried that our race is spoiling the planet for future generations should stop to think a little longer, because there will be no future generations if humanity cannot face its responsibilities as citizens of Earth. Instead we shoul be mindful of what mother nature has in store for us. Eventually this loving, tolerant and long suffering mother of mothers wil completely lose her rag. Then it will be time for early bed with no tea. It really will. The Enids' views on mankinds treatment of Mother nature are made completely clear in this release..

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't keep a good band down 21 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a wonderful surprise to return to an old love from the 70s (Aerie Fairie Nonsense and the magnificent In The Region of the Summer Stars) to find that The Enid were able to turn out this absolute beauty as late as 1997. This one really grows on you. The stand out show-stoppers are Riguardon (a real livener), Chaconne (a satisfyingly insistent, irresistable echo of Eno's brilliant but disappointingly short title track to Another Green World) and the celtic-influenced Gigue. The rest of the 10 tracks are quieter, more reflective and provide just the right amount of balance, particularly the piano piece Ballade and the final track Nocturne that quietly recaps earlier themes. Based loosely on the spirit and feel of the Robert Graves book White Goddess, this is a positive, feelgood new age offering from the old master Robert John Godfrey. A must for all Enid fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majestic 29 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought Summer Stars when it first came out in the mid 70s and have been a fan of Robert John Godfrey ever since. I must say though, that I thought the best was long in the past until I heard this. Recorded in 1997, White Goddess goes straight to the top of the pile. From the pomp and power of Fantasy, Riguardon, Chaconne and Gigue to the reflection and beauty of Ballade and Nocturne, this ranks right up there alongside their very best recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more to add... 2 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Except to concur with the other reviewers. If you like your music served with a touch of panache, skill and sensitivity, look no further. Possibly RJG's best effort yet, but somehow I expect The Enid to snatch defeat from the Jaws of Victory - how very British!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes!! Excellent! 20 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this with "In The Region of the Summer Stars" - I'm still getting into that!
But "White Goddess" has really impressed me - I hadn't realized how "classical" it would be.
I can't get away from a real sense of Tomita - and I mean that as a compliment! With wonderful flavours of Oldfield, Wakeman and hints of ELP, I really love this kind of thing.
Wonderfully ethereal at times - yet uplifting. There are some pretty rampant sections as well - like "Sarabande" and "Gigue" where some very Oldfieldesque guitar really picks things up.
Messrs Godfrey, Jamieson (guitar), Read (Bass) and Storey (drums); have given me an extremely enjoyable hour or so. However, it's Godfrey's wonderfully lush keyboards that carry this superb musical journey.
Love it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "IT'S THE ENID, WHAT were you EXPECTING?" 27 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've seen them perform this album live at Northampton Derngate end of 1997 and I'm very please to hear it again after so long, having been a long time follower of the Enid during the '80's and 90's. It still doesn't fall into the likes of "Something evil this way comes etc because it lacks the profond lyrics. Although the Enid will remain the Enid with Robert John Godfrey at the helm, it has never been quite the same in own special way since Steve Stewart left, as he was the main engineer & producer of their unique sound, " but a very good album all the same!"
