And I still like the Maire album from 1992 most. It was my first Moya cd and it still brings back a lot of memories!

I am happy that at least it is a member of this forum who got this cd!
Next time I hope luck is on my side!

Sorry about that Martijn, eBay is a tough place :D I hope you are able to find another album very soon. And don't worry because i collect Moya and Enya merchandise. So it will be looked after :mrgreen:

I have been listening to Clannad and Moya for over a decade now, and I think Two Horizons comes close to the ultimate Moya masterpiece to me. Though on the production side it sure has its weak moments with wanting to sound a bit too much like her sister, but the overall performance is really sublime. I think the theme of the album is really haunting, this pursuit of a harp. Together with Moya's mesmerizing voice it is such a pleausre to listen to the album again and again. Also, though the album sounds quite electronic, what added to it were the live performances of it. I think it took a lot of braveness to take the stage with two harps and such an ephemere sound. But still it worked, thanks to the confidence of Moya and her band.

So yes, there are numerous Clannad and Moya albums that are musically as good, but the way Moya herself presented Two Horizons makes me think she founds it herself one of her key works, even with her career of over three decades now.

When I last saw her live in April at Evergem Belgium, after the show I told her that I was glad she still performed lot's of TH songs, and she happily replied she thought it's a good album.

I love Two Horizons and gave it top vote (favourite Moya album) which may be a bit biased of me as it is the only Moya alblum I have so far. But I love the story format and listen to it alot (in between Enya cds) :wink:

This may all change after "Signature" is released. Will have to see.

:P Kate

I only own TH and Signature and they are both my favourites. It is hard to decide between them.

My favourite song is Tara, I particularly love its rythm, and the short sequence that appears just before the first and second choruses (on the left of the stereo image) always evokes me the sun breaking through the clouds to light up the hill of Tara... It's magical!

Two Horizons is a genuine masterpiece, it can never be made again. And its in a different league to Signature :D

This album is amazing and I listen to it a lot but it's not my favourite. My favourite songs are "Tara", "Sailing Away" and "Ancient Town" :oops:

When I got TH and listened to it for the first time I was a little surprised cause there's a huge difference to WTTWW. It took some time getting used to it (like a day) and then I really loved it. My favourites still are Harpsong, Sailing Away, Ancient Town and Tara. It's an album I listen to when I have some quiet time in a nice corner with a coup of tea in my hands. I need that to really appreciate all the harmonies that are in the songs.

I really like this CD and listen to it often, although it's not my favorite. I like listening to the album all the way through - it just has a great sound to it. I don't really have a favorite track, it's just too hard to decide!

I just listened to this CD in full last night again and I realized how much I missed listening to it..the title track gives me full on goosebumps, this has to be the best work she's ever done..Signature is second best. :) (of course, that's in my opinion ;)) I think the poll says it all right now, it's a good album and I listen often as I've probably mentioned. :)

"The album is amazing, and i listen to it a lot", that's the right words.

I have to say I agree- signature is good, but TH is just incredible. I think it'll always by my favourite album- of moya's, and of anything else i've ever heard.

Still love it! It's great concept album. Can you imagine music movie based on this stunning album?
