Enya: Shepherd Moons (1992)

(One of my many reviews that went unpublished in Rock & Roll Disc when the magazine ceased publication in 1992 ... )

Shepherd Moons
Reprise 9 26775-2
Total disc time: 43:33 (no SPARS code)

Merit: ***
Sound: ****½

Yep, she's a New Age chanteuse and therefore something of an airhead. But just when she's about to sing something really stupid, she switches to a Celtic tongue and leaves us commoners none the wiser. Anyway, Enya isn't about words. She's about how to make synthesizers sound like angels. The results aren't rock-and-roll, obviously, but then again you can't rock your baby to sleep to Nirvana.
