I've been a huge fan of Enya's since Watermark. Her music has got me through some pretty horrible times over the years. I eagerly awaited the arrival of this CD through the letterbox, I was not disappointed. "WOO-HOO!" and "WOW" sum up my thoughts after one listen.
The "Enya sound" is there, but this album provides some different ideas and compositions. It's a very strong album with no weak tracks at all. Stunning!
Personal favourites songs are "Amarantine", "If I Could Be Where You Are", "Long Long Journey", "Amid The Falling Snow" and "Water Shows The Hidden Heart". Those tracks are just beautiful and take the listener away from every day life.
The song you'll find the hardest to stop your feet from tapping to has to be "The River Sings", just a superb punchy track! And I adore the haunting "Sumiregusa".
It's hard to favour an Enya album over another, but I've been blown away by this one. Arguably some of her best work so far.
