Enigma at their best,
This review is from: A Posteriori (MP3 Download)
Without a shadow of a doubt this is the best Enigma album since Cross of Changes.
I've loved Enigma ever since MCMXC A.D, but the more recent Le Roi Est Morte, Vive Le Roi and Screen Behind the Mirror never quite matched up to Cross as an album. Sure there are some good individual tracks but overall there was just something missing.
Well not with A Posterior, right from the very start with Eppur Si Muove I knew this was classic Enigma, uplifting, etherical and a little kooky.
To me this album is a mix of chillout but with that futuristic philosophical edge that makes it easy to imagine this being the essential soundtrack to an update of Kubricks 2001.
As with all Enigma albums it is clear there is a social commentary running through the tracks but the beauty of listening to them is working out what you think it is saying.
My personal favourites from this gem of an album are Dreaming of Andromeda, Sitting on the moon but most of all The Alchemist, however when ever I listen to these above the others there's always the sense I'm missing out.
And thats what makes this album such a pleasure there is so much to listen to and think about it just keeps me coming back for more and more.
This is like The Cross of changes ... only far far better - More Please Enigma!!
