I like the celtic music and I first heard Moya on the "New Age-Channel" from SkyFM.
When I collected more information about Moya I found out, that she has recorded "Saltwater" with Chicane wich Single I have buy a long time ago.
On SkyFM I heard Moya with her Song "Tara" and it's true when I say that I had tears in my eyes. Her voice is so beautiful, warm and mystic and combined with the celtic instruments wonderful. I was on the Concert in Arnhem and nervous when I stand beside her if she gave autographs. I had so many questions to her but in that moment I had forgotten these all. I was so nervous.

P.s.: Sorry my bad english. I am a long time out of school but i hope that everyone understand me... :oops:

Welcome Chris! Don't worry about your English, it is good. Great to have another German fan here, we have to act as a counterbalance with all these Kikkerlandje-guys :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I am listening to Two Horizons more these days, so I have to say, it is a very nice album, one of my favorites. I had a feeling I quite missed some things when on the concert. I only had it for 2 days orso,.. so it was a pity I didn't knew all of the songs, (or I HAD singalong!) :mrgreen:

Welcome Chris to the forum!!! I am glad that you got to see and meet Moya!!
I am sure you are all tired of me saying this but "Two Horizon's" is my all time favorite Moya CD although I love them all. Ness had said that compared to Clannad's first albums, Two Horizon's is a different genre. I like the newer sound of Moya and Clannad then Clannad's first albums. When ever I interduce people to Moya's music I always give them TH! I have made quite a few fans here at my work. I am hoping to get a big group to go and see Moya when she comes to the USA again.

Two Horizions has gotten to be the one CD in my car player going to and from work lately. I normally put 'Sailing Away' on repeat and listen to it a few times to wake me up, then on the way home, I listen to Tara (of course!), Two Horizions and Harpsong.

I'm planning to include this in "the soundtrack to my day" tomorrow. :mrgreen: Haven't given it the listening it deserves lately. I didn't know what to make of it at first, but it has become my favourite. :D

I still think Two Horizons have such infinite power on its category. Moya blended both acoustic and electronic instruments cleverly and their balance between them creating a mesmerizing, dreamy atmosphere.

As I understand her way of music, she never prefer a full electronic based sound - like Enya do. I think it's because of her history with Clannad. Electronic is giving lot of control and different tastes thats for sure - but in my opinion electronic sounds must be a "backup power" behind the acoustic instruments to create atmosphere that composer imagined. And Moya fulfilled it perfectly on Two Horizons.

If you want to know how i still feel about 'Two Horizons'. Then here is your answer.....

This is the japanese edition of TH. I am to recieve it 'factory sealed' and for a more than reasonable price. This version has one extra track that isn't not available on the normal album version. The track is Show Me (Jakatta Mix 12 inch version) - bonus track for Japan only :mrgreen:

A great buy..... :mrgreen:
