4-0 out of 5 stars Typical Enya!
Amarantine would make a great name for a girl. I wouldn't be surprised if there are some named Amarantine by now. Enya has the power to make you feel like you're in a higher place than you actually are. When you hear her sing, you feel like you're on top of a mountain overlooking the views. Her music does that to me. It makes think of aspiring to something higher than reality. Thank God, Enya's voice is like that of an angel on earth. I love all her compact discs but this one is alright but as long as it's Enya, I will buy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not her best, alas
I first heard "Orinoco Flow" in a department store at the tender age of twelve, and have been bewitched ever since by the sheer magic of Enya's music. I can think of no singer I admire or love more and, with the possible exception of Loreena McKennitt, no one whose music can touch so many different emotions. So I was thrilled when "Amarantine" was released, and popped it into my CD player the first chance I got, expecting to be bewitched again. And it truly saddens me to say that I wasn't.

Others have written far more eloqently than I could on what an incredible set of 8 pieces of music this is.It continues to grow on me with each listening, almost 9 years later, and is easily my favorite of all her CD's, all of which I have."The Highwayman" is so mesmerizing I could listen to it endlessly and not get tired of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Book of Days!
The Book of Days is one of my favorite songs ever. I can replay it constantly without being bored or tired from it. I feel energized and raring to go do something creative. Listening to Enya music has that effect on me. It's like a spiritual awakening listening to her. You begin to believe that there are other important issues out there in the universe. Listening to Enya whether you are driving your car or in yoga class is therapeutic at times. You feel like you are listening to a choir of angels and can't believe it is just once voice.

5-0 out of 5 stars A brief comment
A good friend turned me on to Enya, whose songs I had enjoyed but had never connected with her name. The sonorous melodies and rhythms along with the ethereal quality of the choruses give many of the songs a haunting quality like no other contemporary artist. Her music is about as far from the ever popular hip hop as you can possibly get, recalling the art song of classical composers rather than the contemporary pop scene. I really appreciate Enya and hope this is just one of many more best of Enya albums to come.

As each new Enya release has washed over all who have ears to hear, as each heaven-touched work leaves admirers sitting speechless in slack-jawed wonder, questions eventually come to mind: Might her layered, choral-like approach gradually become predictable or stale? Will she ever exhaust her deep reservoir of soul-stirring ideas? Remarkably, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Contrary to any other neg Reviews, this CD is Beautiful!!
While most reviews here are agreeing, I've read a few others that diminish this work of A Day Without Rain. I say, that unless you are detached from your Heart energy element within, you will find one of the best pieces of musical work and melody here from Enya. Very spiritual in some qualities, and one of her best releases in my experience of listening.

2-0 out of 5 stars Pop goes Enya
For all her mystical etherial talent, this recorcing is all-American pop at its poorest...Cliche lyrics, choppy tempos, flat artistry. Perhaps she finds it novel to sing in english, but this cd is nothing like her earlier beautiful work...If you're an original Enya fan, this isnt it.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Enya albums
I hesistated to buy this album since I have so much of her music all ready; however, I was not disappointed in the least. I expected some repetitious sound, and there are examples of her signature sounds but that doesn't bother me. She has a way of making something similar sound new and different. It's so relaxing and that's what I need after a busy day. I don't know how anyone could rate this lovely album poorly. I have almost every CD Enya has ever done and this is one of my favorites.I like it better than 'Amarantine.' I love quiet calm music with a hint of celtic. Enya is definitely my favorite musician/singer of all time. I used to love Yanni but he has become too commercial for me. I can even tolerate Enya made to elevator music. She is who she is and I love her music. ... Read more

Enya has a remarkable voice and range. Her music is not for everybody but it is for me. I feel like I'm being raised up to a higher level spiritually playing this collection. She has a voice that is like a heavenly choir of angels. She doesn't neglect her Celtic background neither and pays homage to her roots by singing Celtic songs. There are might be other singers out there but there is only one Enya and she continues to redefine herself and her music through the years.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Enya- Of course it's beautiful!
Wonderful, relaxing, and beautiful. But we've all come to expect that from Enya's music. Absolutely fantastic!! One of the most beautiful voices around!

Mixing a variety of styles with a Celtic base, this was McKennitt's breakthrough album and remains one of her most musically interesting. "All Souls Night" begins the album, with dance-like rhythms and McKennitt's wonderful voice singing about the Celtic New Year.

I have been listening to Loreena Mckennitt my whole life, since my mother used to play her music when I was a little girl. Since that time, I have grown to love her music, and have collected a large number of her CDs. When I got this one, I was really excited, and I'm glad that I did.
5-0 out of 5 stars Ms. McKennitt is a talent worthy of world recognition
Lorennas talent for writing and collaboration with world artists is amazing. The beautiful Haunting Celtic manifestations you hear on this album will send you into another world of imagination and dreaming. Simply magnificent.

Loreena's voice on this and every album is amazing - so perfectly suited to Celtic music. The first song I ever heard her sing was "The Lady of Shalott" (played on public radio in NC).I had to stop the car and close my eyes!Buy this album and every other album of hers - I'd be VERY surprised if you were the slightest bit disappointed. ...

Enya's cover albums are like a work of art in itself. Then once you listen, you can't imagine how beautiful and angelic of a voice. This compact disc was one of many. You feel like sailing away her to voice when you hear Caribbean Blue and other other songs on this disc. There isn't one song that I could pick but all of them. I recommend this collection as a must have for Enya fans everywhere. She will win you over with her soothing voice and spirituality. I always feel more energized listening to her music than getting a power bar.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rainbow of sounds and pleasure
Shepherd moons was my first introduction to Enya back in 1991. Her styleand haunting voice rooted themselves in my soul ever since then and the song called Caribbean Blue still stops me in my tracks everything I have the pleasure of hearing it. It must be one of my favorite musical pieces ever for you see blue in front of your eyes as you hear it, the Atlantic waves on a beach at night or with sun light shining through like columns of light all the way down till they disappear to the abyss. Her music has the rare gift of powerful visuals they project in the listener.

This is my favorite album of all time in the Celtic category.Loreena McKennett taps into a deep mystical place here.Full Circle is spellbounding, my favorite track of any!
5-0 out of 5 stars Loreena's Mystical Magic
"The Mask And Mirror" was the album that made me a Loreena McKennitt fan. It's a very beautiful, entrancing album that instantly sweeps you off to a far-away land. When the album came out back in 1994, I heard it playing in a music shop, and I was instantly taken by the album's feel, it's rhythms, it's expertly crafted arrangements and sounds, and, of course, Loreena McKennitt's soaring, magnficent voice. Inspired by a personal trip she took to Spain, "The Mask And Mirror" is a pure feast for the ears, with Loreena blending memorable melodies with powerful elements of world music and new age to brilliant effect. All eight of the album's tracks are sparkling gems, but of special mention are the opening "The Mystic's Dream" (which instantly sets the album's mystical mood), the lovely, pop-meets-world hybrid "The Bonny Swans," the atmospheric "Marrakesh Night Market," and the soaring rhythms of "Santiago." But from beginning to end, Loreena simply and effortlessly enchants the listener with her heavenly voice and her skillful piano and accordion-playing. The album's production is very handsome, and Loreena & her world-class team of session players deliver outstanding performances. "The Mask And Mirror" is a wonderful introduction to the wonderful music of Loreena McKennitt. I highly recommend it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awe inspiring!
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Howard Shore's magnificent score for the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy? A soundtrack can define the whole atmosphere of a film, and this fully orchestrated work certainly does that with sweep, splendor and wonder, alternately humanizing (hobbit-izing?) the characters, imbuing the landscape with magic and capturing the world-shaking impact of events of mythic proportions. And this was no easy task considering the iconoclastic status of the story and the superb quality of Peter Jackson's filmmaking. This is a truly a soundtrack for the ages--a fitting accompaniment to a film for the ages! Every aspect of life, from the extreme to the mundane, is captured in this music. Listening to it can make every remembered moment of the movie come alive again in your mind, from the most horrific battle to the smallest moment of humor or kindness. I think this first one is my favorite of the three "Lord of the Rings" soundtracks. I enjoy the juxtaposition of the lighter moments, like the sweet, simple hobbit theme, with the grander and more menacing sections of the music. (That despite the fact that said hobbit theme begins exactly like the first phrase of the Protestant hymn "This Is My Father's World," which prompts me to think of the hobbits trouping off to Sunday school every time I hear it. But now when I hear the hymn, I think of Lord of the Rings, so I suppose all's fair!) What impressed me most as I watched "The Fellowship of the Ring" was how scary the music was when the hobbits were being pursued. Those relentless drums and eerily screaming drums made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, even though I knew the story like the back of my hand and knew for a fact that the poor little heroes would manage to escape. But the music truly made me wonder otherwise ... Now that's good composition! And the fact that the filmmakers chose to include background music in so many of the scenes, almost continuously ... well, that's just good filmmaking! The other impressive thing about Howard Shore's score is how the voicing and repeating motifs tie the whole thing together, like the finest of symphonies. The total effect is utterly convincing and utterly transporting. Peter Jackson chose well when he picked Shore as his score writer. Very, very well! Be sure to get the scores from the other two movies in the trilogy as well - "The Two Towers" and "Return of the King." They seem to be available in no end of different packagings, including ones with bonus DVDs about the creation of the score. Also, make sure to get the extended edition DVDs of the movie itself, with hours and hours of fascinating commentaries and behind-the-scenes documentaries about the making of the films. Truly a bargain at any price! And for more seminal soundtracks, try John Williams' defining scores for the "Star Wars" series and Basil Poledouris's spectacular score for the original "Conan the Barbarian."
5-0 out of 5 stars It is the best of the three CDs!!!
For me, the music of the first sequel is my favourite since this is also the sequel that I prefer in the trilogy (I remember being blown away by the quality of this movie, the actors, the setting, the action scenes, the special effects, the moving relationships between all the characters and of coourse the music)

2-0 out of 5 stars MEDIOCRE AT BEST
I listen to Enya's music and all I feel is this empty sadness...that's what Enya's music IS sad music with plain arrangements, mechanical choir(s), and mostly lame melodies.I like a few of the songs on this album."Hope Has A Place" is kindof a highlighted song I hope to use in a movie I'm writing a script for."Tea House Moon" is OK; kinda sleepy-sounding, though."The Memory of Trees" opens with a promising group of melodies, then gets caught up in finishing too quickly or SOMETHING that causes the song to fall short of its intentions...I can't even remember anything else that I really like off of this album or almost really like.And, like any Enya album, this one has at least one really dark midevil sounding song.Perhaps the only reason people like Enya is b/c she's a more gentle sounding artist, as opposed to guitar-clanging janglers like Sheryl Crow and Alanis Morissette, who seem to be liked by the same crowd.

5-0 out of 5 stars Enya's last great album
It's hard to believe "Memory of Trees" came out 11 years ago;it has held up well over the passage of time.It's Enya's last great album before the New Age/pop of "Amarantine" and "Day without rain." Back in 1995,Enya still had her creative spark,her own voice.

Born Eithne Ni Bhraonain, this classically-trained pianist was kid sister in the musical family that became Clannad, joining the Irish band in 1979 but dropping out amicably three years later to pursue her own muse. This music, produced in the mid-'80s as the soundtrack to a BBC series, was released as her debut in 1987 and promptly ignored--yet its mix of atmospheric soundscapes and Enya's lush, layered vocals, sung in both English and Gaelic, is the template for her subsequent global hits, beginning with Read more

Loreena McKennitt's "songs for the season" are haunting for their beauty and her fascinating voice. Blending traditional Irish music with worldbeat and New Age-like instrumentation, McKennitt's arrangements are at once elegant and eloquent, enchanting and familiar, whether she's singing "Coventry Carol," "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen," or "Good King Wenceslas." "Snow," adapted from a 19th-century poem, and the traditional "Seeds of Love" are so lofty and deep they reach almost mystical places. Read more

McKennitt is without doubt the singer I admire most. To speak the truth, it's hard for me to rate any of her songs because I am ready to listen the most boring and disgusting song of the World for ten hours from her mouth. She makes a most meaningless sentence a book of philosophy, I think... Hmm OK, I know. You wait for me to make a criticism. Firstful, if you are hesitating to buy this album, all I can say is ''Don't wait!'' All the four songs in this album are quite above the average. OK man, I know this album has five songs but Snow is not a new song and, while being great anyway, is no better than the previous version.
5-0 out of 5 stars Three Hair-raising albums to review, and this is one!!!
Bluntly put, this is one of the three most stunning Christmas albums known to man."God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" combines a Middle Eastern instrumentation with Celtic... (play it before service in your church and they won't be talking about the lecture...), and "Good King Winceslas" is just out and out powerful!Short CD, but worth twice the money!

"Winter Garden" is a five-track EP that compliments Loreena's Christmas album "To Drive The Cold Winter Away" to splendid perfection. Only one of the songs ("Snow") is a carryover. Here we have a haunting harp rendition of the Coventry Carol, and a mysteriously Eastern God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, complete with derbukka drums, tambourine, shawm, wild fiddle, and Loreena vocalizing with Middle Eastern flair. Good King Wenceslas is a rollicking Celtic air, with guitar, tin whistle, and uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes). Snow was my first introduction to Loreena's magic blend of international sounds and spiritual tales (it was on Celtic Twilight Vol. 2), and remains one of my favourite songs. I have a tradition of playing this on the first snowfall of every year without fail---somehow it seems the perfect way to usher in the magic of winter and the first snow. Seeds of Love is a gentle, wistful ballad supported by Irish bagpipes, vocal layering, and a serene close to this gem of an album. If you're tired of the same old boring Christmas Muzak blared in malls and assault of teenybopper "Group of the Moment" Christmas CDs, "Winter Garden" is a much-needed breath of fresh air to reenergize the magic of the holiday season. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Fusion music of nuance and mystery!
It is with this album that McKennitt's awesome talent as a composer/arranger truly finds that distinctive voice--somewhere in between Celtic, jazz, folk and world music--that is so prominent and beloved in her later work.Most of the music and some of the lyrics as well on "Parallel Dreams" are written by McKennitt in their entirety rather than being arrangements of traditional tunes or poems.There's still a sense of quiet restraint about many of the songs on this album, but this time it's underlain by a pregnant intensity of synth chords and percussion, released into the music just enough to give it an air of mysterious purpose without overwhelming McKennitt's ethereal vocals and nuanced harpistry.Guest musicians include Rick Lazar on udu drum and congas, Ratesh Dasj on tablas, guitarist Brian Hughes, violinist Oliver Schroer, cellist, bass and tamboura player George Koller, mandolin-player David Woodhead, piper Patrick Hutchinson, percussionist Al Cross, and Shelly Berger on pzud.Loreena McKennitt's previous album is "To Drive the Cold Winter Away," and the next one in the sequence, continuing her intriguing development as a composer, is "The Visit."I love everything she's ever done-- she's as true a talent and as creative a genius as you could ever wish for in a musician.But what impresses me most about her is how stirringly and satisfyingly her work has evolved over the years.She just keeps getting better and better!Try also the Celtic / folk / world music stylings of singer and multi-instrumentalist Kate Price and the work of dreamy vocalist / pianist Lydia McCauley.
5-0 out of 5 stars PARALLEL DREAMS/Loreena McKennitt
LOREENA MCKENNITT is a multi-faceted musician and recording artist is a gifted writer and performer who focuses on neo-classical folk based on early or pre-Christian themes. Her hauntingly beautiful rendition of Alfred Lord Tennyson's "The Lady of Shallot" (1843) from THE VISIT brings to life the plight of a daemonic lady doomed by her love for the mortal Lancelot; the eternal longing of Psyche for her beloved Eros, and its promise so seldom fulfilled. As with many of McKennitt's works, The Lady of Shallot is woven with strains of ethereal sadness, a mystic musing that succeeds in both charming and ennobling the listener.
5-0 out of 5 stars Georgous and eerily haunting!
Loreena McKnnitt's voice is superb and so poetic on this CD. As all the other CD's of Loreena McKennitt's, the music and her voice is inspiring and beautiful. For anyone who loves the haunting melodies of Celtic music, Loreena McKennitt CD's are a must. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, relaxing, insightful, reflective, refreshing
What wonderful end of the day music...probably the finest Celtic album that I own, and I own quite a few!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Uplifting, to say the least...
This CD is one of the CDs that makes me glad that we are now in a digital age as opposed to vinyl, for if this had been a vinyl album, it would have been worn flat by now.I play it constantly, in my office, in the car, at home.It has a great, spiritually-uplifting tone that is both inspiring and meditative.It has a great combination of voices, in solos and ensembles, that bring real life and dimension to the music.As the commentator for the introductory essay to these pieces says, the Celts seem to have a real feeling for the presence of the divine, and that can often be heard in these melodies, harmonies, and voices.There is beauty and there is grace in these pieces.5-0 out of 5 stars If angels sing...
If angels sing, this is how they surely must sound.Of all the music I have ever heard I find this to be the purest most transporting experience of pure feminine energy.Never syrupy or pedantic, the female vocals here seem to literally plumb the listener's deepest regions and stir those subtle quiet spaces gently to life.The gaelic lyrics, rather than being an obstacle to enjoyment, serve rather to enhance the entire musical experience by side-stepping the issue of literal meaning, at least to we who speak only English, and thereby freeing us to appreciate the words as sounds whose meaning transcends spoken language.I own other celtic albums, all of which I love for their own particular strengths, but this is the one I save to listen to at those special quiet times when I'm alone and just want to put on the headphones and be carried in the arms of the angels. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!!!
I have every Riverdance DVD and have watched the live show once. This CD is based on the original production (With Michael Flatley and Jean Butler) and while it might not carry the "excitement" of the original show as others have commented, it is a great way to remember the beautiful music and orchestration when you are not close to a DVD player to enjoy the video production. The unfortunate thing in listening to the "soundtrack" of a live/video production is that separated from its visual context, it can be difficult to understand or appreciate. Riverdance is a visual as well as a sound experience. If you have never watched the show, it would certainly be hard to appreciate the music in this CD. I listen to it frequently and love the music more each time. If you are a Riverdance fan, this CD is a must. It's simply superb.

4-0 out of 5 stars Disappointment after seeing the show
I recently saw the show live & was excited to get the soundtrack.However, as many other reviewers have noted, it was a big disappointment - it doesn't match the charisma of the show.While it does have some great songs on it, you just don't get the feeling you got while actually watching the show, which was a tremendous feeling of excitement & thrill. I must add, I did pick up the 'Lord of Dance' soundtrack & was happily impressed.

Editorial Review

Their debut album broke down many tediously outdated barriers. Now the Afro-Celts are back with another genre-bursting, non-preachy, multi-culti soundscape. There has never been anything bland or generic about the ensemble's output as their concept of one-world music is less color-blind than color-appreciative; in other words, they don't ignore our differences but celebrate them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Their quantum leap best so far
I have followed afro-celt from the first. And, from the first I have anxiously awaited the next release. But this one blew me away. Is there a bad track? Hell no!! I cannot wait for the next. It will be hard to surpass this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Volume 5: Anatomic Afro Celt Sound System
I have the other four volume's and I find this to be one of the best. I enjoyed this CD so much that I purchased Laria O Lionard/Invisible Fields one of the singers of the Afro Celt Sound System.

5-0 out of 5 stars More of the same great sound . . .
I have most of this group's recordings, and this new CD is of a piece with the rest of them. Wonderful driving rhythms and aching yearning in the voices, some songs, even those in other languages, so heartfelt it's hard not to sing along once the melody lines become familiar. To my ear, this group just keeps getting better and better as they weave together many strains of world music and varieties of instrumentation into a seamless aural tapestry. ... Read more

Almost as famous for their killer cheekbones as their astounding musical chops, this Platinum-selling Irish family band (sisters Andrea, Caroline and Sharon plus brother, Jim) has cut a major swath, garnering an international fan-base with their Celtic-flavored electrified pop and feisty live shows. They decided to cut an album of mostly traditional songs as a memorial to their mother, Jean, a musician and song collector who died in 1999. But as with Sinead O’Connor’s 2002Read more

the irish two songs remind one of a aire of love for all persons, and simple pleasure in music. let the coors record an American Classic song "THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS"
5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, traditional lyrics
I honestly thought that most of the music on this album were Irish standards until I looked at the liner notes and saw that the Coors had writing credits on all of them.I heard it while at a book store and had to buy it that night, it moved me so much.The music is wonderful and traditional and moves the Irish soul. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best-listen to this Year-Round and experience the Joy of Thankfulness...
Simply one of the best & most original of the Windham Hill compilations, and I'm very glad Windham Hill thought to release this one. Just as close to perfect as they come, and the only way it could have been any better was to have had a contribution by the always original arrangements & compositions of Barbara Higbee, (or Fred Simon) but perhaps they were not available at the time. Of course, in a compilation like this, you need to have "We Gather Together Together..." but it is particularly touching to hear veteran Paul McCandless' arrangement to open the disc and set a thankful & comforting tone. Tim Story's consistently original & moving here as always, and the true highlight for me is "Amazing Grace" by John Doan. It is "amazing" indeed to hear someone do an original take on this classic hymn which has been recorded by so many, many fine artists over but the many decades of music-recording history. Leave it to Doan and to Dawn Atkinson's masterful production experience & background to pull this off so well. Will Ackerman's "The Gathering" is a typically original piece, very listenable year-round, and Carlos Nakai is a welcome addition with a peaceful cedar flute offering. Finally, (and really,there are so many gems here...) Lisa Lynne adds a sort of Majestic Joyfulness to "Allelujah", which certainly blows the dust off of this great hymn tune, bringing new life to such an often heard melody. Like the very best of the "Solstice" collections, this is a perfectly appropriate collection to hear year round. For example, I have listened to it on Independence Day, and found it strangely perfect for refection on our American roots that gave birth to many of these hymns, and to the spirit of creativity that our Founding Parents passed on to us in America. Simply perfect, Windham.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Sentimental Reflection
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on friends, family, and blessings.At this time of year, we celebrate our families, we think of those who are less fortunate, and we reflect on the solemnity of the season and what it means to be truly thankful.
5-0 out of 5 stars WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT
For most of us, Thanksgiving confronts us with a variety of emotions.Gratefulness should be the primary one; unfortunately getting stressed out and bent out of shape can overtake all the best intentions.Everything from complicated and hurried preparations to being cooped up with unpleasant relatives can ruin the occasion.Some of us endure Thanksgiving alone or practically alone in that those dearest are far away.For a holiday that can mean so much, a lot can go wrong.Read more
