Editorial Reviews

Clannad bridged the gap between traditional Celtic music and pop, and the results were an entrancing, enchanting form of pop that managed to fuse the disparate elements together rather seamlessly, creating an invigorating blend of Irish traditional folk with modern influences. Such fusions have earned the band an international cult of fans.

Clannad are at their best when unleashing gargantuan choruses against Moya Brennan's hushed leads, and the inclusion of the beautiful "Newgrange," a mystical ode to one of Britain s famous stone circles, and "Caislean Oir," the leadoff track from the band's excellent 1985 release, Macalla, are prime examples.

With 30 tracks on 2 CDs, The Essential Clannad touches on fan favorites, collaborations, and songs from films. The material is quite varied in scope, and the arrangements and vocals are vastly pretty and melodic. The full range of the band's styles are presented here, from gorgeous a cappella to slick pop/rock, acoustic guitar ballads, Irish folk strains, and sophisticated power pop crunch.

As the world patiently waits for a brand new Clannad album this year, we have this wonderful collection to remind us of the awesome talent they are ! This 2cd set highlights an in-depth view of their lush music, from humble Irish folklore to ethereal cinematic bliss that most of us are now used to. Moya Brennan (Enya's older sister), has the voice of an angel and is the focal point of their sound. Thanks Sony/Legacy for the most complete Clannad collection out there.

Clannad is a band that puzzles some when they first hear them but quickly grows on a listener. This is the best collection of their music I've found to date. BUY THIS! I will keep looking for their releases on SACD (Enya has one I've seen), K2, DTS, or SHM and I hope the record companies in Japan have some in their future plans. I listen to just about every type of music. But sooner or later you want to listen to something soothing and comforting, and CLANNAD is just the band to listen to. This is a remastered collection which brings out the vocals and layered back-up vocals, plus instrument placement is really great. A plug here for new stereo equiment...if you do not have a 24/192 DAC CD player--get one. The difference between and older CD player and the newer ones which seem to release the music to a wider dynamic range is really a huge difference. CLANNAD has had personnel changes over the years but all the hits are here. Money well spent, and with a bottle of wine, an inexpensive way to spend the evening with the significant other.

Fantastic CD!! Of course, anything you put out is an instant buy for me. Its so wonderful to
hear these songs again. Due to bad road conditions, my other cds with these songs are pretty
much scratched up so I've been putting off buying the older cds again. These are pretty much
all of my favorite songs and I'm enjoying listening to them again.

I have been playing Celtic music for 50+ years and have found Clannad to be one of the best groups in the genre. It is gratifying to have this compendium of many of my favourite tunes within one reach.

I have liked their music ever since hearing them sing the theme song from Last of the Mohicans. Their music is mesmerizing.

One of my most favourite albums and can be played at any time of day even in the background while I'm working.
