Hello, everyone. Look at what I found!

Just look at Moya on that cover! She looks like one of the Christmas angels! Anyway, I hope you are looking forward to this album as much as I am!

-Greg

P.S.: Sadly, I am not able to listen to these audio clips because I'm at college and they block MP3s from being downloaded. I would absolutely appreciate it so much if I could have some of you guys please zip those clips up and email them to me at gregoing@yahoo.com . Thanks so much!


EDITED: We have a release date! (One which I didn't notice before) It is NOVEMBER 15!

WWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWW

Greg! Where do you find these things! (I remember it was you also who first found that streaming concert link) Thanks so much for posting....when I read that you had actually found the cover I was expecting to see a picture of Moya in a Christmas kind of setting......I had NOT expected to see such a picture :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I love it It is so experimental and different, Grrrrrrreat!

To hear those new moyasongs felt like getting a little wink from above....I have felt rather low for quite a period of time and I just had a long talk on the phone with my "homefront" (what would the world be without patient and loving mothers.....)
and well, to hear these little soundclips.....it is such a comfort....thanks Moya! Can't wait to buy the album on the 4th of December....(THE day I'll go to one of your christmas concerts :D )

I'm with G.. I'm not wild about the cover art. You can't even tell that is Moya! I LOVED Moya's version of Carol of the Bells and that is saying something since that song drives me mad... I loved the other track (title escapes me right now), but, and I guess it is because I am more used to it, I like Enya's version of Oiche Chiuin better...

Can't wait to hear the rest of the album though!!

The reason I like the cover is because it is quite unusual and unexpected and I like the humour.....
she is like her own Christmas decoration :mrgreen:

I can see a similar style to TH in this album. The cover has the new TH font. And Moya seems to be doing that TH style in her image and music. To be honest i couldn't even tell this was a christmas album by listening to the clips :o

I think its great :D :mrgreen:

November 15th cannot come soon enough :mrgreen:

I also have to say that the cover doesn't impress me. Something just didn't work. She looks pretty, but overall, the cover is .... strange. Maybe I will change my mind when I see it in real life.

I listened to the three clips. I really enjoyed "Carol of the Bells." I was half curious about how it would sound because the song calls for parts instead of a solo. I wasn't disappointed. The percussive sound and her "oo's" brought out the magic.

Stephanie

P.S. The clips appear to be in Quicktime format. I think that they stream instead of download.

All I can say is...just when you think it can't get any better, it does... The clips I heard just left me without words...and the album cover...I'm loving that. I cannot wait until November 15th!!!!

Greg thanks for posting this!
