ONLY TIME-the cd-single-is a strong achievement of Enya's. First, this "single" includes three beautifully orchestrated and executed songs: 1. Only time (remix) 3:13 2. Oíche Chiún 3:45 3. Willows on the Water [instrumental] 3:02, and runs ten minutes. I adore the standard, classic version of Only Time (which runs 3:36 and is available on Enya's multi-platinum hit A Day Without Rain); it's powerful, enigmatic, and sublime. Therefore, I was a little leery of a remixed version of such an already stellar song. If the remix wasn't done in such a successful manner, it could have ruined this delicate masterpiece. Luckily, Nicky Ryan and others remixed Only Time well, with yes an up-beat rhythm that imparts a distinct pulse to the song. It's more relaxed, and definitely a change of pace from the original. Oíche Chiún, is Enya's Gaelic rendition of the powerful `Silent Night.' This is a true masterpiece by itself, but singing it in Enya's trademark of Gaelic just kicks the passion and beauty up a notch. This song is a non-album track and only available on the obscure Oíche Chiún single. This song is apt for the coming holiday season and a nice edition to anyone's collection of Enya rarities. Willows on the Water (another rare track), from Enya's Paint the Sky With Stars era, is a stunning instrumental combining seemingly synthesizer and strings in a very festive manner. In short, the ONLY TIME remix single is a very nice edition to anyone's Enya collection and puts a very successful spin on an already classic song.
