One thing that will always set a truly amazing album apart from an average album. Is if you can listen to it years after release and think, this is an amazing album.

I find that with TH, i can listen to it anytime. And still get those emotions i first got when i brought the album :mrgreen:

So for me personally, this album still is one of Moya's best. Which i still listen to a lot :mrgreen:

Have been receiving and buying so many new CDs lately that sadly Moya's music has not been playing in my CD player for some months!! But still I think that TH isn't Moya's best album to date...

All of Moyas music I hear a lot and for me it is: the nore I hear an album the more I like it, because you can always find some new harmonies, you didn't hear before. That is espacially with the first two albums, but also with the others.
When I first heard TH I thought, this is really close to Enya, not only because of the style, but because of the homogenic sound of it. But if you listen to it more often, you find special harmonies in every piece.

I don't listen to TH as much as I used to - but it's still excellent!

Same here ... I've acquired such a lot of music recently that I don't have enough hours in the evenings to listen to it all! I wish I was like Data in Star Trek TNG who can listen to .... how many?!?!?! Well, at least dozens of tracks simultaneously and enjoy them all as much!

Seriously, although I don't listen to TH as much nowadays it doesn't mean I've gone off it .... like G I still think it's as good now as the day I first got it.

...the nore I hear an album the more I like it, because you can always find some new harmonies, you didn't hear before...

Exactly. To me, this is what makes music. If there's always something fresh about the music (including in Moya's case as well something in the lyrics just reaches the parts other songs cannot reach :lol: ) then I'll listen to it time and time again.

well that should music be, I absolutly agree with you. But not every music really IS that way. When I think at this main-stream-music... I remeber in the sommer, there was a hit in the radio (don't remember name or artist) and in the song was one harmonyI always thought: oh this one is really witty and authentic. You know: ONE harmony in the whole song and that was such a speciallty in these main-stream-radio, that I recognised it everytime I heard it ;)
That's why Moya's music is something special. ;)

Another thing is that Moya's music has a lot of "staying power". How many groups, particularly mainstream groups, can you think of that have come and gone? Not just their songs, but the entire group!

Moya may not be producing albums as quickly as many of these, but she's stood the test of time and passed it with flying colours! She's still there, along with Enya and Clannad, producing good quality music on a "slowly but surely" basis.

My first Moya album was Perfect Time; I still listen to it even today in addition to the others.

Some days ago I read about Enyas albums, that they are: still selling, like classical albums.
I think that is the same with the Moya and Clannad albums, they are not depending on a special time.

yeah, they're just timeless. i can't think of a time or day where it wouldn't be right in anyway to listen to them. i have a friend, and he is firefighter. (here it is just called feuerwehrmann, but i love the word Firefighter). he was one of the first entering the building where a maniac run amok and killed 14 people of the government of zug. i don't even want to know what he saw. he told me that enya's music helped him really a lot to go on with his life. it's just the peace of her music and her voice.

I love TH; it's just a great album. But nevertheless I'm looking forward to Moya's Christmas album. :)

I really love Two Horizons, though I don't listen so often to it lately. I should do that soon again.

I still love the album, especially "falling" but i've not listened to it for a while. Irish Christmas and Enya's new one have taken over :P

I think it's a great album, but haven't been listening to it for a while since Enya's new album gets all my attention nowadays. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find Moya's Christmas album yet, which annoys me a bit. Hopefully I can get it before Christmas...

I remember at first that I wasn't mad about Two Horizons and feel a bit embarrassed that I even said that now. Now I really love it... I think I was just expecting the wrong thing when I listened to it at first. It's a great album and "Falling" is the absolute best! :mrgreen:
