iTunes Review

A professional musician for nearly a decade before this album was released in 1988, the multi-platinum Watermark is the recording that made Enya an international sensation. A native of Ireland, her true musical inspiration lies with her Celtic roots, and though she may have been branded the quintessential New Age vocalist in the U.S., that’s a simplification of her style and a bit of a misnomer in general. (Of course, it's a marketing approach that certainly did boost sales). So though, yes, this album does perfectly complement, say, a bubble bath, it’s too intricate and intriguing to simply dismiss it as soothing background music. What sets it apart from so many other relaxing albums is Enya’s voice. Stunning and pure, it's further enhanced by the vocal overdubs and layered keyboards that lend it a trace of echo and effectively draw the notes out, giving it a trace-like quality. The music rises and falls pleasantly around her without stretching for contrived drama, and there are piano and string passages throughout that are as gorgeous as they are subtle, along with some excellent use of traditional Irish pipes. Strong from start to finish, Watermark also contains “Orinoco Flow,” the album’s runaway hit single with the catchy “sail away” chorus. Arguably her finest and most consistent release.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful

I'm the only person I know that's heard of Enya, but her songs are gorgeous, they make you want to dance and cry at the same time! I always reccomend her music to people and they look at me like I'm nuts-- but I always have it on in my room, with a book and a cup of tea, it's so pretty and relaxing. Get Orinoco Flow, Only Time, and Wild Child ALL her music is BEAUTIFUL

One of those albums you need to listen to before you die

Enya has been at the forefront of her genre for a long time now. But this 1988 album is perhaps her crowning achievement. Every song flows with a vital energy. Each song transitions with the motion of waves on the beach, in and out, from dark to light, loud to soft, lazy to energetic and back again. Enya fashions an ingeniously unique sound through the combination of modern mixing and synthesizing and the melodic library and instruments of her ancient Celtic roots. While this sort of music is not for everybody, this is the cream of the crop and its worth a listen for all those who haven't. You might find you've been missing out all these years. There is alot more to this woman than Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)!

Absolutly Beautiful

She is one of those rare artists who use there music to inspire people. I cry everytime I listen to her songs. I just stumbled upon her and she is the best thing i have heard in a really long time. And although i am a teenager I know what real music sounds like and this is it.
