Enya: Amarantine

Lisa Verrico

The London Times (Online), 18 November 2005

Sung in English, and her first album with no Gaelic, Amarantine is Enya’s most accessible to date. Her multilayered vocals still appear as though from the ether, but on several songs, notably the title track and the lyrically simple Somebody Said Goodbye, they sound sweet and poppy, rather than ghostly. Enya critics will dismiss it as New Age nonsense, but Amarantine is a lovely album that is much more than a soothing listen.
