Shockingly fresh and beautiful album that transcends new age cliches with its timeless production and moving performances by a extremely talented singer.

This remains Enya's best outing. Orinico Flow was the big hit, but Storms in Africa is equally catchy. For a new age album, there is pretty good diversity in the rest.

The other album I own with a nice piano led opening track is Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness! They change a bit after that. Being serious I think this is the only so called 'New Age' album I own (unless J-M Jarre or Mike Oldfield are classed as that), and only picked it up because it was cheap 2nd hand, although I had, of course, heard various Enya tracks. It's a beautiful album, with a lovely clarity of vocal, and one I'm glad I bought.

Watermark is an enchanting polyphonic music - an album of rich abstract ballads and intensely epic symphonic classic pop that is hugely influential, particularly on new-age music.

It really is a work of art for such a pretentious genre. New Age usually is nothing but overly artsy bullshit, but this album is wonderful in all the right ways. A favorite for me.
