And Winter Came - Enya
Being a massive Enya fan I was eager to see what this album had in store. I had not been overwhelmed by her last album Amarantine so I was hoping this one would restore my faith her music.
The album gets underway with a delightful instrumental track, a reworking of one of her old B-Sides, though most people possibly would not notice this. The music which follows is soothing, captivating and stunning and she does not put a foot wrong.
The stand out tracks are My My Time Flies! Oh Come Emmanuel and Trains and Winter Rains, which takes one back to the good old Enya we have come to love. It is indeed a very wintery album and the music conjures up images of Christmas, snow and presents. It is one of her finer albums for sure and Enya's vacals have never sounded better than on this record.
Enya fans must buy it and those who want some soothing calming music will enjoy this too.
