    As a collector of Enigma's music since the release of MCMXC a.D. (ltd edition), this is another striking album. Their first album hooked me. I was sadly "let down" with the Cross of Changes album, but this (their 3rd album) came out, it rekindled my spark for Enigma. And THE PACKAGING of this CD is INCREDIBLE. The transparent, plastic pages fold together meticulously to form the cover that you see now - unfolded: the actual cover doesn't exist. Brilliant concept! Sadly the albums that followed didn't fully grab me musically until the Seven Lives, Many Faces album... thankfully.

    my favourite Enigma album, it's the first album i ever owned... sorry about my english but i think "Le Roi Esto Mort, Vive Le Roi!!!" is something that was said when a king died and a new one was crowned, it's related to evolution and the passing from a state to another, the album is about that (morphing thru time)
