4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent easy listening album, 20 Jan 2004
This review is from: Solas (Audio CD)
Ronan Hardiman would be better known for his music in the
Stage Show LORD OF THE DANCE.
However do not let that put you off, if you like easy listening music, chill out, ambient, this one is for you.
In fact everyone I have introduced this album to, has fallen in love with it! I feel confident that you will too.
It opens with love Song, which has got to be the most infectious ambient song since Enigma's Return to Innocence. From there you are delivered more melodies that will capture you, and believe me after that there will be no escape!
The best tracks.... (In my humble opinion)
1. Love Song (listen to the sample above on Amazon)
3. Dreaming (again sample above)
4. Heaven
8. Far Away
10. Secret World
The likeliness of you knowing some of these tracks already is immense, after all holiday TV programs have been using them for years (as their back ground music)
If you are into Enigma, Enya, Air, Moby, ambient, chill out, this one is for you!
Buy it now, you know you want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic journey..., 22 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Solas (Audio CD)
The more I listen to this album, the more it grows on me!

Hardiman created a sellection of celtic moods, all in similar atmosphere, with the delicate, Enya-like vocals of Leslie Dowdall. Her haunting voice fits perfectly into Hardiman's synthesized soundscapes.

While some of the tracks sometimes sound too sugary-sweet, the resemblance to Enya's and Clannad's music makes this piece of work worthwile and fascinating music experience. Best moments? Far Away, Take me with You, Angel and Communication, although the rest is also very good.

This review is from: Solas (Audio CD)
If your looking for easy listening it dosent come any better than this , a haunting blend of celtic fused with modern contemporary easy listening sounds . Its not like anythine else that could draw a close comparison but if you like enya secret garden and that kind of music this is something you will enjoy for years to come . Im into all kinds of music from AC DC to Britney and this is one of my favourite albums to return to time and time again , amazing first album and the follow up is just as good . cant recommend this enough .
