Show me!! :mrgreen:
Both the first and the last song!! :D

But it's actually quite hard to decide.

I lo~ove "Tara", "Change my World" and "Two Horizons"!!

But somehow "Show me" is sth special to me! :D

I've voted for Harpsong. It instantly had an impact on me, which I'd love to be able to put into words - but can't :lol: . Change My World comes a very close second, though....

I'm glad you like TH Cliona! And a novel? What kind of novel are you writing?

Glad you dusted off this topic Cliona. I’m a relative newbie to this beautiful album too. The jury is still out regarding which is my favourite track though. ‘Harpsong’ is definitely a forerunner I think, I love the way the track opens up with the sound of the sea crashing the shore in the background, for me the music evokes an orange sun setting on the horizon and a done-day out fishing, the aroma of homely turf fire glowing through the windows of a thatched-cottage looking out on the oceanic endlessness.

‘River’ also tickles my taste buds too. Powerful, uplifting vocals flow purposely in and around the music that suggest to me a journey and spiritual search for answers.

I really do find it difficult to pinpoint a standout track on this album as they are all wonderful. I haven’t really stopped playing TH since I bought it a couple of weeks ago, thanks Moya!

what about "is it now"? i mean, like "show me" there is a theme on that song and i'm wondering why it isn't on the voting-list... :wink:

as being a concept-album "two horizons" has displaced me in another world. loving every single track! inspired and enchanting melodies, perfect application of instruments and absolutely awesome vocals - in my opinion a real and timeless masterpiece!

returning on "is it now": i would give my vote to it, because moyas singing there is indescribable, getting goosebumps everytime...
so i voted "other" and in the end i think it's the fairest decision, because, as i already said, i'm loving the entire album :wink:

i read all the post i have been trying to vote since months ago really, i finally could listen to this wonderful album, well ending last year... i couldn't decide for one only song, so i voted "other" because of the way how the songs link to the next one, and some of them are combined like Ancient Town with Bright Star, or Mothers of the desert with Is it now? or the chorus of Show me inside Falling... it is an amazing work i agree with some who said that this is her Master piece, at this moment i am listening to Ancient Town and it is getting hard to type lol, is absolutely haunting... also Harpsong and Two Horizons, Sailing away and Change my world, also Bi Liom is very special for me, i love when she sings in Gaelic and all the changes in the song wow i have no words to describe my feelings the first time i heard this.
believe me this is one of the hardest choices i have ever read in a forum.

voted for Tara as it still fascinates me,
and about song links to each other - true,
do like it too,feels like a long story all
still suits winter time for me,
a long warm narration
sometimes abstract sometimes cristal-clear :mrgreen:

I only found out few minutes ago that I never voted in this poll,but to make a long story short ,Tara is my favourite.Moya's words combined with the beauty of the area simply create magic :)

Excuse me, "Mother of the desert" would be also part of the album, wouldn't it ? :)

I haven't seen it to tell the truth...

At any rate, definitely the song I like best is "Tara", it has a wonderful, mild pace, it's modern style, nua-aimseartha would probably say Moya herself, but it blends both modern sound and ancient-like feeling...

Has anyone of you ever tried to spot the meaning of some passages ?
Apart from Moya herself I mean, there is some history if I've got that well, in a few words...

There's another two songs I like a lot:
"Change my world" and "Ancient town", Moya is really skilled in giving magic or ancient-like atmospheres... those words and that sound are incredibly enthralling !

A note about the whole album: I've ever defined "Two horizons" as a travel album, I found out it has a really really strong effect on me when I'm travelling by train for a long distance and I listen to it.
I remember Moya talks about a "musical journey" in an interview about it, this is not a coincidence for me...
