    Dead silent Pressing. No cracks, static or pops. Obvious good quality control. Vinyl itself is not as flimsy as a lot of vinyl records from the 80’s are notoriously known for. Not too heavy, but not too thin.

    It sounds beautiful. The highs are crisp, the middles are just subtle enough, the bass is balanced yet booming and the vocals sound ethereal. Don’t hesitate to get a copy if you can.

      Barry Diament, who mastered to original Geffen CD, guesses that it was George Marino at Sterling who mastered the original Geffen vinyl.

        Why exactly is this is a reissue? Is this because UK issued it first? Can't find an earlier US pressing.

          The track 'watermark' is,for me,the single most heart breaking melody of all time.i was in my early teens when I started to listen to Enya,and if I hadn't I'd probably not be listening to the likes of nils frahm et al now,so thankyou Enya for introducing me to modern classical music.
          I know that some,if not many,will disagree with my classification there,but I don't think these distinctions really matter too much with respect to the point in trying to make.
          In 1993 I was well and truly caught up in dance music,particularly hardcore techno.when I listened to 'watermark' and 'shepherd moons' it was like a breath of fresh air.henceforth commenced the widening of my musical horizons,and I'm grateful for that.

            Really enjoyed this album. The track "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)" is very beautiful. 5/5

                Vinyl reissued May 6, 2016 - would love to find out how the sound quality on these 2016 Enya reissues are.
