5.0 out of 5 stars As stealthy as all of Enigma's previous releases, 30 Jan. 2000
This review is from: The Screen Behind The Mirror (Audio CD)
Having bought Enigma's first hit single 'Sadeness' back in 1990, I was very disappointed at the first listening of the album it came from - MCMXC a.D. But it wasn't too long before I found that it's power stealthily crept upon me, and I found myself swept away, enraptured by this perfection. And I have experienced the same initial disappointment, followed by later enrapture with each subsequent Enigma release.

They say 'start as you mean to go on', and it has always been clear that Michael Cretu has clung to that little nugget. With 'The Screen Behind The Mirror', it again appears that he has done the same. But in the strongest defense of his possible genius, what others call 'more of the same' and 're-hash', I call an artistic, musical and spiritual quest to express ONENESS.

It is clear that all of Enigma's albums are connected in a way that I think has never been done before, making them collectively ONE great big album that only serves to prolong the ecstasy they induce. For this reason, I cannot pick out any one track for analysis, believing as I do, that this album must be considered as part of it's collective. And from this point of view, this latest release really does deserve 5 stars.

All you who have complained about this release know that ultimately you will come to love it as much as the other albums, just as you already see their unity. We buy the latest remix or re-interpretation of any particular recording, precicely because we want to extend the pleasure it already gives us.
