We gave it a B+

A greatest-hits compilation from the Irish New Age muse might seem silly (1989’s dazzling ”Orinoco Flow” being her only true hit) or pointless (who doesn’t already own Watermark and Shepherd Moons?), but this retrospective, which includes the gorgeous new single ”Only If…,” proves that no one can make a one-four-five chord progression sound more enchanting. The new title track is a snoozer in a bad way, but the rest of Paint the Sky With Stars – The Best of Enya will put you to sleep with a smile on your face. B+
