Nice production but I wanted more than just a mainly instrumental album. There are some great performances by these various musicians.

Taliesin Orchestra Has Strayed

"A major disappointment! Purchased this based on the outstanding first orchestral of Enya's music in Taliesin's ORINOCO FLOW. The banshee background vocals and the 'pop' beat literally mutilate most of the cuts in this album. Taliesin Orchestra knows how to make beautiful music - a la FORBIDDEN FOREST and ORINOCO FLOW. When they did ANTHEM they started to stray from their best...and now it has been carried over to Enya's music. The best way to honor Enya's music is to use the orchestra to express the mood and flow of her music...or have Enya herself sing her songs with a full orchestra. Get rid of the background banshee vocalists! While imitation maybe the sincerest form of flattery, this neither imitates or flatters. Hopefully Taliesin Orchestra will revert to their former selves and bring us more quality music."
How THIS Puts Enya to Shame!

"Taliesin's tribute to Enya was wonderful orchestra music that made it EARN the title "Orinoco Flow". But THIS is simply terrible, especially the back-up vocals! Somewhat the orchestration isn't so bad at all - which makes me willing to cling on to this album - but, argh, the female vocals in most of the tracks are but drowned meeks compared to Enya's! What do they think they're doing - forcing their voices to pay TRIBUTE to a diva like Enya puts the latter in a great deal of shame. If they wanna do something, they'd better do it well and RIGHT! What with all the "uh, uh, uh...!" from those girls! Simply pathetic!"
