The Very Best Of Enya [CD/DVD]

( 9 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Comprised of 18 tracks culled from the singer/composer's first three decades, The Very Best of Enya was pieced together by the artist herself, along with longtime collaborators Nicky and Roma Ryan.

With tunes like "Orinoco Flow," "Caribbean Blue," and "Book of Days" in the pot and out of the way, it's easier to appreciate hidden gems like "Cursum Perficio," "Boadicea," "Trains and Winter Rains," and "Anywhere Is."

Also notable is the inclusion of "May It Be" and a previously unreleased version of "Aníron (I Desire)," both of which originally appeared on the soundtrack for the first chapter of Peter Jackson's beloved Lord of the Rings trilogy. [An expanded Special Edition, featuring bonus tracks and a DVD, was released in 2009.]

    Distinctive

    This CD has a nice mix of Enya's music which I find very enjoyable and nice to fall asleep to at night. I haven't had a chance yet to view the included DVD but I'm looking forward to it.

    If you aren't familiar with Enya, you're missing beautiful music.

    The boxed set comes with a DVD. I have just about all Enya's music. Highly recommend this CD - she has a beautiful voice and it's very relaxing music.

    This is Great!

    This collection of music and videos are great. The songs on the audio cd are in a wonderful order that flows from beginning to end. The booklet, which really is a beautiful small book is an original way to store the cd and dvd. This collection is put together as a well thought out and designed whole product. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys Enya's music and videos.
