Amarantine by Enya

Amarantine by Enya

The Irish singer, Enya has created a genre unto herself. Although it's been five years since her last CD, on Amarantine it's as if time stood still. The magical team Enya, comprising Enya (the composer/performer), Nicky Ryan (producer) and Roma Ryan (lyrics) does not disappoint -- a gorgeous album that I listen to at work, at home and in the car.

  • sounds like it took a life time to make this record

Doing justice to Nisht Azoy is a tricky affair, not least because Black Ox Orkestar stand alone, making comparisons and associations nearly impossible. The use of gypsy melodies on the later Firewater albums also comes to mind. Adopting and reinterpreting Jewish diasporic music, Black Ox Orkestar's second album moves through original songs, traditionals and compositions based on folk songs and ballads. The selections are masterful, as is the playing, whether eliciting joy with dance rhythms and singing or delving into slow, sad evocations of melancholy......

This is the perfect gift if you are looking for a present for a female, 25-45. Anyone who likes country, ballads or adult contemporary music that is a fan of Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood or Martina McBride will love this single! The first thing you notice is the voice, a sunburst of emotion that lets you know you're in the presence of someone special. It's throaty and powerful, full of confidence, brimming with personality and shaded with country, soul and gospel textures. The second thing you notice is the songwriting - lyrics that stray off the beaten path to explore new shadows of the human heart. These songs are the works of a woman who understands the beauty of true craftsmanship. Jamie O'Neal is that rare individual, a debut artist who arrives with her talent fully formed. A superb live entertainer, a polished songwriter and a real "singer's singer," Jamie has poured a lifetime of experience into the creation of her music "I have always wanted to be in Nashville," says Jamie O'Neal. "I have dreamed of this my entire life."

First of all, Gidi Gov is what is called "an institution" among Israel's musicians and songwriters. Second, "Laila Gov" is his own show, which is all about good musics, fellow musicians, sessions and good talks, and people love it. This CD release is the first in a series of "Best of Laila Gov" - it's two CDs full of famous Israeli songs, newly interpreted by Gov and his guests in the studio.

The songs move between ballad and toe-tapping beats, the lyrics offer stuff to ponder on or just to sympathize. Above all, though, there is Shlomo Artzi's distinctive voice, which made him one of Israel's top songwriters and singers.

  • "HaChalonot HaGvohim" sound a bit like "The Mamas and the Papas" singing Hebrew. But their songs are nice, with a 60ish beat , of course, and good lyrics.

If you aren't fond of heartfelt ballads and oriental pop songs, then this is probably not for you. At least three of the oriental-beat songs of this album have been adapted for "Rikudei Am" (Israeli folk dance, the national sport of Israelis), and they're really fun to dance.

Sarit Hadad is a singer whom people usually either love or hate - nothing in between. She has gone through an interesting change, stylewise, from slightly trashy to perfectly styled (at times almost like Madonna). Her songs probably belong into the "easy entertainment" corner; they're played at weddings and parties, they're fun and have this greek-style beat that's simply viral. The lyrics? Nothing to write home about, nothing deeply philosophical: love, macho men, lost love, simple life... This CD was one of her hits, and I think it shouldn't miss on the shelf "for party fun".

  • Meir Banai released this album in 1992, and it is quite a nice, at times calm, mainstream-y album. The lyrics are completely in Hebrew and range from pensive to nostalgic. One of my favourite albums of his.

Who doesn't know Ofra Haza, Israel's musical ambassador at the 1983 Eurovision (where she performed "Chai" and ranked second) and performer of movie soundtracks (such as "Prince of Egypt" or "La Reine Margot"). "Im Nin'Alu", a chart breaking single in 1988, eventually made her famous all over the world. "Yemenite Songs" is probably a lesser known album of Ofra Haza, but it is nevertheless a beautiful one. Being of Yemenite origin herself, she performs popular Yemenite-Jewish songs, such as "Im Nin Alu" or "Ode leEli". The songs are sung in Aramaic.

Teapacks, who went under "Tipex" before they got into trouble with the big brand of wipeout fluids, published this CD in 1993, and it was quite an instant hit. It was their second album, and by '93 they still performed in smaller bars. Their album performace which I attended in a small Tel Aviv club in 1993 was great. The songs added quite a new touch to the Israeli music scene, the lyrics are witty and funny, often critical and on the point of actual political matters.

He has been around for quite a long time now, has published a lot of albums, and he still a favourite with many, many Israelis. This here is one of his successful albums, published in 1984. It features a mix of ballads and pop songs. A certain touch of melancholy is Sharabi's hallmark, and I think it matches really well to his voice.
