Biography

It is one of the most extraordinary stories in contemporary music. Very few people would have seen the potential fully, when a young slip of a girl from Donegal, on the remote north western tip of Ireland, by the name of Eithne Ní Bhraonáin, first hooked up with Nicky Ryan and his partner Roma Ryan.

It was the tail end of the 1970s and by then Nicky was a well established ... Read more in Amazon's Enya Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Having sold 40 million albums worldwide Enya is one of the most successful female artists of all time and second only to U2 as the biggest selling Irish artist in history. Her first new album since the triple platinum, Top 10, Grammy-winning The Memory Of Trees once again transcends formulas, borders and commercial expectations as only Enya can. Certified Multi-Platinum (6 times) by the RIAA. (1/02)

Amazon.com

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, A Day Without Rain, Enya's fourth release since her 1988 breakthrough, Watermark, establishes new artistic heights for the gifted Irish vocalist and keyboardist. The project, polished and refined over a five-year period in the company of longtime collaborators Nicky Ryan (producer) and Roma Ryan (lyricist), may qualify as her best yet--a radiant, beatific collection of works that command attention with their cathedral-like resonance as they soothe your spirit with some of Enya's loveliest, most graceful voicings ever. The disc's opening three tracks (including the spellbinding "Only Time") form a gorgeous trilogy that suggest Enya has deepened her focus on the nexus where sophisticated pop and regal mysticism, the twin rivers of her singular sound, form a seamless intersection. The disc's gentle timbre is disturbed only once, and in memorable fashion, with "Tempus Vernum," a marshalling of mythic sonic forces that brings to mind the theme from the De Beers diamond commercial, but with a Celtic/Goth edge. Additional highlights abound. The closing "Lazy Days" will leave your soul dancing in a shower of flower petals and sunshine. A wonderful recording. --Terry Wood

Customer Reviews

Enya's beautiful voice is the centerpiece of the song.
Lonnie E. Holder
Straight off: A Day Without Rain, Wild Child, and Lazy Days are the very BEST ones.

If you liked Enya's previous albums, you'll really like this one.

As Enya's seventh official album, she still manages to produce astounding chords, harmonies, and overlapping vocals. The song of Heaven itself cannot be much better than this. _A Day without Rain_ is an absolute masterpiece, one that reaches new heights for Enya. Overall, this album seems to have a peaceful, mellow theme to it; but this theme is actually halted for one song. The following is a song-by-song experience of Enya's _A Day without Rain_.
1. "A Day without Rain" is the first and title track of the album. As a quiet and gentle piano/vocal piece, the song seems to bring to mind a silent snowfall in winter. Yet as it is titled, the song pinpoints how glorious the sunshine can be after prolonged periods of rain.
2. "Wild Child" is the second song on the album. A bit playful but still retaining an inner knowing, this song's plucking background and rhythmic singing definitely project some sort of happiness or discovery. The melody is very catchy, and you'll find yourself singing along in no time.
3. "Only Time" is the gem-like third track on _A Day without Rain_, and is featured in the film _Sweet November_. This song quiets the mind and reassures that all troubles and triumphs are handled by time. The song seems to climax halfway through, with added background vocals and melody changes. Just like a rain shower fading, "Only Time" ends as if it has given you a pearl of wisdom.
4. "Tempus Vernum" is where the theme stops, but then repeats after this song until the end of the album. Dark strings and xylophone-sound plunking give this song an edge. The chanted/sung Latin lyrics add to its eerieness, and its sound building at the end of the song leaves as quickly as it came. This is certainly a memorable piece.

I must begin by saying this: Enya is simply and utterly the most amazing artist I have ever discovered, and will surely remain as such for all eternity. Her capability to keep creating albums and songs that are all so different, yet all so amazing and beatiful, is genius!
The album begins with the pure and refreshing title track, which is an instrumental. As an added bonus, there are vocals throughout the song by Enya.
Then you are taken to a brighter, less serious level in "Wild Child", whose title fits perfectly! This song is joyous and slightly spunky, and reminded me a little of "Anywhere Is".
The single and third album track, "Only Time", is calming and reassuring, and seems to say that worry is worthless, since all is in Time's hands.
"Tempus Vernum" seems to stir up every sense in me. This is easily one of my favorites from the album, and is a Latin chant that crescendos to the very end.
The effect that occurs between the fourth and fifth songs is very interesting. When "Tempus Vernum" ends, the background actually fades into the background for "Deora Ar Mo Chroi".
This Irish Gaelic song's translations are given in the album booklet, which speak of the earth's voices singing and gentle skies falling. It also mentions the singer's voice rising to the sky and "telling all that I believe in". The song ends with the knowledge that the earth will sing again after night concludes.
"Flora's Secret" is, surprisingly, a love song. The background sounds very much like the beginning of "Wild Child", but the melody and lyrics differ extremely. This song is light and full of the comfort of love between two people.

Finally after waiting five years Enya has finally returned with all new material. While I am proud of owning this CD I kind of feel a smidgey bit cheated. First off this CD is only 34 and a half miniutes long. It seemed more like a demo tape. I have CD singles that are more than 34 minutes long. She could maybe on her next album compose songs that are an average of five or six minutes long. And a couple of songs are like unfinished demo tapes. Deora Ar Mo Chroi and Silver Inches are probably the most uninspired boring tracks Enya has ever written.
That doesn't mean that this album is less than great. It's actually one of my favorite albums of 2000. I ran out and bought it on the day it came out. While I miss the dark and stromy atmosphere of Watermark what Enya has offered is no less than amazing. This album is by far her sunniest and most cheerful album to date.
The title track is your typical piano instrumental with some vocals here and there. Wild Child is a beautiful song with plucky strings and a very sunny atmosphere and rhythm. Only Time is like Anywhere Is but much slower. This is from what I guess is her biggest hit since Orinoco Flow from 13 years ago. This another beautiful song. Tempus Vernum is the winner on ADWR. This song is totally different from the previous songs. It's a very Gothic song with lyrics sung in Latin. This is like a severe thunderstorm. The only complaint is that it's only 2 and a half minutes long. It could have been lengthened to about 5 minutes. Deora Ar Mo Chroi is like the calm after the thunderstorm has passed. Unfortunately I am not very moved by this song. It is one of my least favorites on this album. Floras Secret is a beautiful song about two lovers dancing in a garden of petals in a blue sky. Definately one of my favorites on this album.
