Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Solo performer: Enya (vocals, various instruments).
  • THE MEMORY OF TREES won the 1997 Grammy Award for Best New Age Album.
  • The Memory of Trees is every bit as hushed and lovely as Enya's best work. The beautiful and brooding Celtic melodies she brought with her from her earlier work with Clannad are still the primary raw materials, and her skillful use of them is still the main thing that sets her apart from the new age pack. She also has a truly lovely voice, and there's no point trying to resist the gentle charm of "China Roses" and the incantatory power of "Anywhere Is." ~ Rick Anderson
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (1/25/96, p.73) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Even the instrumental tracks seem to carry soothing hidden messages, urging listeners to chill out and shift their focus to the beauty that presumably surrounds them..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/8/95, p.68) - "...With its layered, breathing-lesson choral harmonies cushioned in sullen keyboards, the album is....wistful....A gorgeous formula..." - Rating: B

Q (2/96, p.65) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995.

Q (1/96, p.120) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...the only genuine global star of new age and ambient..."

Dirty Linen (4-5/96, pp.67-68) - "...she ingeniously mines territory that was previously the exclusive domain of pop, folk, and world music artists and works that product into her unique ambient-based talent and around her sublimely pure voice..."
