5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL Christmas number 1, 18 Dec 2006
This review is from: It's In The Rain / Adeste Fideles (Audio CD)
This CD single may only come in at 7 minutes 48 seconds, but it is such a wonderful 7:48. The title track is full of Enya's multi-tracked voice, beautiful harmonies and excellent keyboards, and as warm and as wonderful as a much-needed hot toddy on a frozen day. It's also one of her best singles.

The second track, which is on the Christmas version of the Amarantine album and also appears on the Christmas Secrets EP, is "O Come All Ye Faithful" sung in Latin. It has been given the Enya treatment and mixes the modern sounding multi-layered voices with the more traditional hymnal sounds. It is just sensational.

Enya is, I think, becoming a little under-rated, despite each album being a gem and selling mountains of copies. I say that despite being a fan and because, as a fan, I hope and expect better each time. Here, as usual, she delivers brilliantly.

So, instead of buying the lamentably awful X-Factor single which, although is bound to be the Christmas 2006 number 1, is as far away from Christmas as you could possibly get, buy this little beauty, which is the real Christmas number 1 in my eyes.

Astonishingly wonderful.
