It's been a while since I've heard any Enya songs, but after listening to the tracks on The Very Best of Enya just once, I had to go back and listen to them again.
Orinoco Flow and Only Time, two of her most popular songs, are simply beautiful, and Caribbean Blue, Wild Child, and Trains and Winter Rains have become my new favorite Enya songs (in addition to Orinoco Flow and Only Time).
There were some songs I wasn't familiar with, but the entire CD was wonderful, and Enya's pure, sometimes haunting (in a good way) voice made the CD such a pleasure to listen to.
The DVD in The Very Best of Enya CD/DVD set features videos of some of her most popular songs, as well as a documentary and "making of" segments of two of her videos.
The videos of Enya's songs are visually stimulating and only add to the appeal of Enya as an artist.
Enya's amazing voice and talent, combined with the beautiful music and meaningful lyrics, really make The Very Best of Enya such a great CD.
I think those who are not too familiar with Enya will enjoy this CD, and those who are already fans or enjoy her songs will absolutely love it as much as I do.
Shop: You can purchase The Very Best of Enya at various retailers online and nationwide (ARV $18.98 CD; $27.98 CD/DVD set)
