Enigmatic Music At Its Best !,
This review is from: A Posteriori (Audio CD)
Enigma - a 'band' that evolved from monks chanting to red indians whooping to jungle tribes pounding to dolphins screeching. It could all have gone so horribly wrong - if one was to think about the ingredients placed in the meiltng pot one would intellectually cringe and shy away from the 'themes' that are evident in each Enigma Collection.
But each album has been given a touch so feather light, an ambience so spiritual, so jam-packed with meaning and insight that one cannot help but fall in love with each masterpiece - music that strikes a deep resonant chord in the heart, leaving an imprint or echo that calls you back to it time & time again.
And so we come to expect failure with every new creation - because 'how do you improve on perfection?' But Enigma are special - they move on and away from topics they have tried n tested before - they explore new avenues. They do not try and be clever. They do not re-invent themselves. They remain true. Somehow their efforts transcend music itself.
This new album -in my opinion - is their best work yet. Suitable for every mood, it uplifts and warms the soul. It speaks of faith, hope, love and enlightenment - yet also deep yearning, loss and despair. 'Goodbye MilkyWay' is simply a stunning track - its theme allowing you to realise how far Enigma have come since their initial conception.
This is a superb rendition to any music lovers collection. Atmospheric, beautiful, easy listening - yet quite the most 'bouncy' of Enigma's albums yet (Perfect for driving to!). Do buy this - you wont be disappointed.
