** CONTRIBUTE A REVIEW **

This is one of those singles that will either have you swearing total heartfelt approval - prior to a lifetime's undying devotion boring the pants of anyone who will listen about your 'precious secret' - or have you heading queasily for the bin marked 'unbearably twee.' There is unlikely to be any middle ground. For it's a fact of life that one person's ambient is another's wallpaper.

With phrasing that is gentle childlike innocence personified, the angelic fragility that is 'Guilty' sweeps into an Orinoco flow of a chorus… Enya can't help but complain about that. Lithuanian exile Gintare is charged guilty as plaintive. Although not wanting to be too Hague about this, there is definitely something of the Tori in her - except here we're talking the politics of taste. She's got enigmatic; she's got wacky; she's got highly strung; and she's got weird - but she's not quite got the hang of wonderful yet. But hang on… the Francois Kevorkian and Patrick Pulsinger dance mixes of 'Guilty' give her sound less of the flighty intrigue, and a lot more balls. Makes you want to stick around for the rest of her sentence.
