Description

2005's Amarantine served as Irish songstress Enya's first release in five years and the follow-up to to her 13 million selling 2000 masterwork A Day Without Rain. Recorded in Ireland, Amarantine is classic Enya and once again, the record was the product of the extraordinary and long-standing creative partnership Enya has enjoyed throughout her career with producer/arranger Nicky Ryan and lyricist Roma Ryan.

From the soaring choruses of the title track to the exquisite nuances of "Wild Violet" based on a haiku by the Japanese poet Basho, everything you could want from an Enya record is here in abundance. Lyrically, however, you will find one or two innovations. In the past, Enya has sung lyrics written for her by Roma in Gaelic, Welsh, Latin and Spanish, as well as English. This time there is no Gaelic. But in addition to the song in Japanese, Enya sings three songs written in a customized language invented by Roma. The idea arose after she'd written lyrics in Elvish when Enya was invited to sing the theme song for The Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring soundtrack, at the personal request of director Peter Jackson.

Amarantine stands as one of Enya's most well rounded and fully realized works to date and its music is as timeless and enduring as the amaranth itself, the mythical flower that never fades.
