Overview

Enya's elusive combination of classical inspiration, Celtic atmosphere, and pop sensibility is evident throughout The Very Best Of Enya as it revisits some of the most exemplary moments from an astonishing career. From her breakthrough "Orinoco Flow" to the sad serenity of "Only Time," The Very Best Of Enya captures the singer's most beautiful work to date.

The album encapsulates highlights from Enya's entire career: from her debut album's "Boedicea" to the first And Winter Came single "Trains and Winter Rains." Along the way it visits a remarkable collection of hit songs and enduring favourites such as "Anywhere Is," "Caribbean Blue," "Book of Days," and "Amarantine." It also provides something new in the shape of a stripped-down, previously unreleased version of "Aniron" that was featured in Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Rings. -- From the Label

The boxed set includes a DVD of some of Enya's music videos. Enya is about the only artist that both my boyfriend and I love! We have most of her CDs. Lovely music and she has a gorgeous voice.

Enya's music is unique. Her composing all her music, the blend of multiple tracks.Orinoco Flow gives you visions of the flow of water. Storms over Africa with the deep bass of African drums is inspiring.Her vocal melodies and track mixing is different.Only Time makes you think of just that, Her voice the melody , hearing the sounds of the cellos and violins with her playing the piano;brings to memories of times gone by.I find Her music to be very refreshing, easy to listen to and very soothing. It helps to relieve the stress of everyday life and unwind, with thoughts of easier , more happy times of your life.It has been too long since her last new CD came out. I hope there will be another release available soon.

This music is very soothing. Back when I was a little kid I remember my fifth grade teacher putting this music on, I really liked the music. I could never remember the artist until my last years of high school. I always remembered two songs, "Wild Child" and "Only Time." I'm so glad I bought the CD and am very glad that I did. This is one CD definitely worth looking into!

During my weekdays, I lead a very fast-paced life. When I am home, I enjoy listening to soothing music and this cd is perfect. Enya is one of my favorite singers and I own a number of her other cd's.

This is a great collection of Enya favorites. One of my very favorite Enya albums. Includes songs I never heard before which are very beautiful (i.e. Celts song). Enya has a very unique quality -- she is very soothing and her songs make me feel like I am in another century.

It is so easy to loose yourself in the sound. One can close your eyes and drift off to a most comforting place.
