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

Enya's elusive combination of classical inspiration, Celtic atmosphere and pop sensibility is evident throughout 'The Very Best Of' as it revisits some of the most exemplary moments from an astonishing career. From her world-conquering international breakthrough 'Orinoco Flow' to the sad serenity of 'Only Time' that was adopted as a comforting anthem of hope in the face of 9/11, 'The Very Best Of' captures Enya's most beautiful work to date.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed it greatly and recommend it for all music lovers.
Yoli
This is very valuable because in the CD/DVD edition, in addition to the track, you can enjoy the videos as well.
Sergio Carcamo Guzman
It's very good soothing background music when you just want to relax.

Format: Audio CD
Both the jewel-box CD Edition and the hard-cover book-bound CD/DVD Editions have a previously unreleased version
of "Aniron" from "The Lord Of The Rings". The soundtrack CD had a version just over 2 minutes, and this new collection has
a recording that is about 30 seconds longer and has more of a familiar Enya studio-sound, as opposed to pure orchestral.
In the liner notes, Enya refers to it has the "previously unavailable full version". "Aniron" had never been on an
Enya album in any form.

Both editions share many of her popular hits, but there are major differences in the tracks included,
with the CD having 19 songs, and the CD on the CD/DVD edition having 22, many of them different.

Included on the regular CD, but missing from the CD portion of the CD/DVD version:
Storms In Africa, Book Of Days, The Celts, Water Shows The Hidden Heart, Cursum Perficio, Aldebaran,
A Day Without Rain, and Oiche Chiuin (Chorale).
(2 of those - The Celts and Storms In Africa - do appear in video form on the DVD)
In their place on the CD portion of the CD/DVD are 11 songs that are not on the regular CD edition,
including the beautiful Stars And Midnight Blue, Drifting, Fallen Embers, and Athair Ar Neamh.
So the 2 sets are very different in the audio portion, with the regular jewel-box CD edition
being more of a concise "greatest hits", and the CD/DVD being more in depth and featuring some less familiar
tracks along with most of the hits. The order in which the songs are presented is also completely different,
with the CD/DVD edition audio being mostly in reverse chronological order, and the CD edition being somewhat random.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In 2001, Warner Music released an Enya music videos collection on DVD everywhere but the USA. This DVD, titled Enya: The Video Collection, went out of print in Europe fast. At the time, fans of Enya in the States had minimal information on when the DVD would get a release in this country. One reason floated for why the plans for a release in the USA were scrubbed was that Nicky Ryan wanted the Enya DVD to have more than a LPCM audio track, he wanted Dolby 5.1. This new DVD has audio in LPCM, Dolby 5.1 and DTS, but this DVD took eight years to get here in altered form.

What this DVD doesn't have are the videos Exile and Book of Days from the 2001 DVD, nor the documentary Enya-A Life in Music. The missing Exile is no loss, it has too many close-ups of a moody Steve Martin from the movie L.A. Story, sometimes pontificating on the meaning of life. The Enya documentary is something else, a class production that should be in the DVD, even if it is a little dated.

This Very Best of DVD is mostly a quality mastering job, but there are signs of corner cutting. There are no English subtitles available, unlike the 2001 DVD. Further, on Orinoco Flow, it seems that some technician did a cheap job transcoding a PAL video master to NTSC. Playing the new DVD on my computer monitor, I see a slightly jagged border at the bottom of the frame. Playing the Orinoco Flow video I copied from my Enya laserdisc Moonshadows onto DVD, the bottom of the frame is even. That 1991 laser also came with closed captioning.

This combination CD/DVD is a real bargain, having extra song tracks compared to the CD only release and having mostly crystal clear videos. The two discs come in a mini-book instead of an Amaray case or jewel box.

These are four editions of music and videos with the very best collections of music from Enya. It is excellent that finally we can have videos of Enya, as "Enya-The Video Collection" in 2001 was nearly impossible to obtain, except some rare copies of region 2 that were available here in Amazon.

I love the music of Enya, and I know that each of the songs in these collections are very valuable. Unfortunately, if you want to have all the songs, you should buy all four editions: The Very Best Of Enya (CD/DVD), The Very Best Of Enya (Deluxe - Amazon Exclusive),The Very Best Of Enya CD and The Very Best Of Enya (CD/DVD plus 12 inch vinyl picture disc) because each of these editions has songs you can not find in the other editions.

So, I'm posting a table of each song and its counterpart in each of the editions. You notice that there are songs you can find in any of the editions such as: "Amarantine", "Anywhere Is", "Caribbean Blue", "Only Time", "Orinoco Flow", "Trains and Winter Rains" and "Wild Child". This is very valuable because in the CD/DVD edition, in addition to the track, you can enjoy the videos as well. This is really fascinating!

Looks like the CD/DVD version is it...
It's funny, I'm actually more excited about the DVD! I think this is the first time her videos are going to be widely available outside of that rare DVD release from years ago & iTunes. I just hope they're in decent quality...

Since Enya already has a greatest hits I wish this could have been... Read More

Yeah, agreed. I was hoping for a CD of "new" material - not another version of "paint the sky with stars."

Oh well.
