Improves with more listening,
This review is from: A Posteriori (Audio CD)
Yes, like most Enigma fans I've got all the previous albums, and like a lot of people you expect each successive album to be similar to the previous. With Enigma, most people I guess were captured by the Gregorian feel of their first hit. Second and subsequent albums introduced ethnic and global sounds to complement the western dance/trance/chillout feel. You could easily spot a potential single hit from each album and the quality remained consistent. So is A Posteriori standard Cretu formula? Yes and No. The quality of the electronic keyboard sounds is the same, but the vocals have nigh on disappeared. This album is mainly intstrumental. If you're like me, you'll listen to a new album incessantly for a few times before tiring of it. With this one I had to listen about three times before I really began to appreciate it and by then, YES it is good enigma, YES I like it and YES it should appeal to die-hard Enigma fans!
