Okay, I just love Enya... but here's my review anyway...,
This review is from: Amarantine (Audio CD)
Alright, I'll be the first to admit that Enya isn't breaking any new ground with this CD.
You know what I say to that? Good!
Sometimes you don't want someone to "break new ground." In fact, I'm getting to hate that phrase. When I bought Amarantine, I thought to myself, "I hope this is filled with the same magic as A Day Without Rain, or Watermark, or any of them." I didn't want to pop it into the deck and hear some big change of style, that's for sure.
So when the CD began playing, and those beautiful, lush, choral chords washed in, I was thrilled. This CD is Enya through and through, unmistakable and unduplicated. The songs are all new, yet they are at once as familiar as being home with your loved ones.
I don't know, nor do I care, how she and her producer manage to get it right every time. I'm just glad they do.
If you're an Enya lover, or at least have an appreciation for her soothing, otherworldly music, then you will not be at all disappointed by this offering.
