A DAY WITHOUT RAIN won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best New Age Album.
Celtic songbird Enya is nothing if not consistent--A DAY WITHOUT RAIN won't disappoint anyone who was entranced by her first major hit "Orinoco Flow." The same blend of adult-contemporary pop, Celtic overtones, and peaceful, new age-derived ambience fills these songs. Enya knows how to set a mood, and she takes her time establishing the themes here; the title cut that opens the album doesn't even have any words, just Enya's harmoniously overdubbed humming.
Speaking of overdubs, Enya sang and played every single thing on A DAY WITHOUT RAIN herself, demonstrating both an impressive versatility and a remarkable steadiness of vision. With the (seemingly) sampled timpani and strings that adorn much of the album, some of the cuts here simply scream "film soundtrack," as if they're just waiting to be snatched up by James Cameron for his next epic film and embedded forever in the public consciousness.
