Mine is Whisper as well, although I also have almost all Clannad albums (and that Banba is one of my Clannad favourites), haven't got the new Two Horizons yet!

Me too, Whisper To The Wild Water, with Perfect Time as a runner up. I've not heard Two horizons yet either.

My love for those albums is due in no small part to the Christian content which gives the songs so much more depth for me. They reflect the new-found love that Moya has for God, she sings from the heart and soul, so regardless of one's belief, one can hardly ignor the integrity of the message conveyed so beautifully in song.

Moya's voice has also given me a great love for the Irish language, though I cannot speak it, I just love to hear the sound of it. The way Moya sings, I don't even consider it important to understand the words.

Wow, you got me going there, sorry to rave on :P

Perfect Time may be my all-time favorite album, with Whisper very close behind. I even have the wonderful book and pin that came in the Perfect Time special package, and I read it frequently! Looking forward to hearing Two Horizons.

I'm sure it will be...

Hey, Mike. Of all four of Moya's first albums, Whisper to the Wild Water is definitely my favorite. However, I voted for Two Horizons because, after hearing all those clips and watching that video on Moya's site, I'm sure it will be my new favorite album by Moya. It just has a brand new feel to it - something different than what she had in her previous albums. Will I miss the distinct feel of Whisper to the Wild Water? No, because I can listen to it whenever I want to!

I have loved all four of Moya's solo albums for different reasons. I was always very sad that 'Misty Eyed Adventures' was largely ignored and poorly promoted at the time of its release.

But I think the last two albums have really seen Moya soar. Whisper to the Wild Water is the best thing Moya has done lyrically, musically and vocally. Four years on....the album sounds as fresh as it did the first time I heard it.

I haven't heard Two Horizons yet....but after Whisper, it has a lot to live up to!

:shock: 8) My fave album would be Perfect Time closely followed by Whisper to the Wild Water. To me, as a Christian, the lyrics in these albums are just so lovely. Haven't heard Two Horizons yet, but I know I will love it. It will need to be good to beat these 2 albums in my view, and I' m sure it will live up to my expectations.

New Favourite, maybe?

I have gotten to listen, thankfully, to clips from Two Horizons, and am astounded at how Moya can come back so incredibly! I am also pleased to learn, both for her sake, and music industries' sake, that she has gone with universal/bmg. This will give a wider audience the chance to enlighten and introduce (maybe for the first time!) to truly a rare gem in the music world-Moya Brennan. Cheers!

Hello to you, Mike (I wonder if you know that we've already known each other... But I won't tell anything else. All you have to do it to guess now :mrgreen: )

According to your question: I fancy "Whisper to the wild water". It's so differrent from previous Moya's works... (Well, maybe "Perfect time" is a bit similar, but "Whisper.." is absolutely wonderful). I can spend hours just listening to this album. Maire is more mature, more experienced, I can hear it on "Whisper...". I just love "Ageless Messengers" or "Life", but of course all songs are magnificent.
I haven't heard "Two Horizons" yet, so I'm still waiting for the European release. I look forward to hearing it, eventually.

Bye for now :D

My favorite, as of now, is 'Whisper To The Wild Water'. I haven't heard any of her songs from her 'Two Horizons' album yet, but I definately say that 'Whisper To The Wild Water' is my favorite album as of yet.

I have played that album so many times, I'm suprised that it isn't worn out by now. LOL.

I simply love Misty Eyed Adventures. and Hello Mike :)

Perhaps it is due to the fact that it sounds so much more pagan, than christian? I always believe Perfect Time is her second worst album, after Máire .... but that's my opinion. I base this both upon the obvious christian feel to PT, but also to the fact that the choral pieces sound so AWFUL... compared to what's on WTTWW, as they sound much better on that album, which is my second favourite. I still haven't heard Two Horizons entirely, but I know I'll love it too, especially because it enhances the style she started on with WTTWW. And I love that semi-Clannad style..... ;)

Ciao!

I have changed my mind regarding the worst album; Perfect Time for me is the worst album she made. I find Máire to be even better. Honestly.

My favourite changes from time to time, they are all to good to choose one.

Maybe I'll know which is my real favourite when the first jewel case breaks from overuse.

I had to vote for Misty Eyed Adventures, it's the only one I've heard... and I really like the whole album. :D
