EDITORS’ NOTES

Enya’s trademark sound is a reverberant backwash of many voices from one larynx, a multitracked vocal orchestra undulating across plucked strings and discreet instrumentation. This sonic calling card radically changes everything it touches, adding mystery and magic to traditionally structured ballads (“Stars and Midnight Blue”), turning slower songs into swelling ambient flushes (“Drifting,” “Sumiregusa [Wild Violet]”) and swirling Celtic incantations (“The River Sings”) or simply making chamber pop (“Amarantine,” “My! My! Time Flies!”) sound like Enya, her own personalized genre.

The Very Best of Enya (Deluxe Video Edition)

I said in my original review that I was disappointed, not with Enya or the album, which I think is terrific, but with iTunes because one of the videos, "A Life In Music", which is only available with the album, didn't download and I took out my frustration in my review rating and comments. I have since been in touch with Liezel at iTunes about the download problem and I am pleased to advise that the problem has been sorted with impressive courtesy and efficiency, and I am also pleased to revise my review rating to 5 stars. Well done iTunes!
