    Enya is no Less a great and powerful earthreal being with all of its energy kindness. Hey melodies, ever smooth, delicate glide along my mind when I sleep with her music.. I feel like I wrapped up in red velvet and smooth, elastic gossamer. If I went every day with Enya being my soundtrack for everything happened in the day, my blood pressure sure would always stay calm. Basically, if I could just her the gorgeous Celtic tantrress sing her beauty, pluck on the occasional instruments........ WOuld already simply be in heave on earth.

    I have been a fan of Enya's music for a long time now. There is something about the tone of her voice and how she layers in those perfect vocals that is both soothing and beautiful. Dark Sky Island is a wonderful addition to her work. I especially enjoy The Humming" and "Forge of the Angels". I was glad to discover she had a new album to add to my collection. This new album has songs that are reminiscent of some of her earlier work and some with completely new themes such as "The Humming" and "Forge of the Angels". Kudos to Enya and her team on this beautiful new work of art!

    She has soulpower. She is the Queen of the Elves walking amongst us. How lucky we are to have this voice amidst the clamour.

    No matter how you frase it her music will live forever, she is a unique artist, talented, a master of melody. No words to explain how she moves your emotions in different directions. I do listen to all kinds of music, from grunge to any other alternative sound, but Enya fills your heart and takes you up in the skies and back down to nature and to the reality of our souroundings. All I can say is Thank you Enya, you will always be a sweet companion to my ears and heart
  • another classic

  • In Defense of Enya’s New Single, 'Echoes In Rain.'

    In Defense of Enya’s New Single, 'Echoes In Rain.' Like so many people, (and like a crazy person) I woke up at 3:23 am this morning to listen to Enya’s latest single, Echoes In Rain, broadcasting from the UK. After 7 years, in complete silence, I was ready. When the song began, it was almost like shock took over. I didn’t know what to think of anything. I listened, checked around Facebook and Enya’s official forum, Unity to see what people were saying. Not much. It was early still. I woke up again later and listened to the song via Enya’s official YouTube channel. Still, no reaction. I wasn’t sure if I was insanely tired, or if it was the fault of the music. I was however being messaged through Facebook of my reaction to the track. I didn’t know. I didn’t know how to feel. The only thing I was sure of, I had to listen to this new song over my regular and amazing speakers. Eventually, I was able to. I liked it. I didn’t love it. I liked it. During this time I am getting into heavier conversation with longtime friends, and fellow Enya fans. I’m being asked again, what are my thoughts. I say ‘I like it’ taking great care not to use the term ‘love.’ I didn’t love it, not yet. I had an appointment later in the day, and I set up the song on my phone to play through my incredible car speakers. The moment it began, I started falling in love. Never before had I heard Enya’s vocals so clearly. There are many elements of the track that are familiar, and at the very same time, everything sounded new. Echoes In Rain is a response to Orinoco Flow. It's a song that marks the end of a journey, as Orinoco Flow marks the beginning. It’s a full circle track, with elements and ideas we’ve heard in songs past. I listened to Echoes In Rain about 6 times, turned up as loudly as I could take it. By the time I arrived home from my appointment, I was fully in love with this sound. There are criticisms about the track, that it’s the same old Enya, nothing new. I completely disagree. I have never heard this Enya before. I’ve never listened to such clarity of melody, such pristine multi-vocals. Echoes In Rain needs a patient listener. I am not one to fall in love with something because everyone else has. I’m a slow burn. Echoes In Rain deserves a good listen, as many times as possible. While perhaps loud drums would have serviced portions of the song to more dynamic effect, Echoes In Rain is a singularity, a triumph of sonic wonder, a conjured spell that only Enya can create. Before I leave you…I must turn attention to the lyrics. If there’s anything that stands out as ‘something new’ it’s Roma Ryan’s (Enya’s lyricist) words. Instead of the usual ‘stars, chimes, moons, and midnights’ Roma has chosen from a new group which have been invigorated by Enya’s simple, yet lofty melody, and Nicky Ryan’s perfect arrangement.
