    SEVEN LIVES AND MANY FACES In this album , Enigma has mastered how to mix rythym, melody and modern sounds in Tandem to generate the feel of an out of this world experience . Guys if you dont know wht i'm talking about , just listen to this album in room with an advanced music system with all the lights switched off and when you finished listening to this album in the same room you'd regret that the music has finally stopped and again down to earth! . JeTaime till I die , is my most favorite track in the latest album , the singer cretu , has poured his heart and soul into it . I wished they had actually created a music video for such a song. HAIL ENIGMA !

    think it tells what I think about ENIGMA. I would call ENIGMA as an UNDYING MUSIC PHENOMENON . I mean if you guys have heard the tracks like { GOODBYE MILKYWAY , ALL THE TRACKS IN THE 3rd Album , loneliness , gravity of love , Erotic dreams album , and the 1st track in the Posteriori , Northern Light , Twenty thousand leagues , oh man the list goes on and on ......} Guys u have no idea what Enigma is..... I could describe it this way , If at all Enigma had a star like Micheal Jackson in them , Enigma would 've levelled the fame of the KING OF POP in there own genre . MICHAEL CRETU = MICHAEL JACKSON MICHAEL CRETU you are an undisputed king of MUSIC AND U HAVE PROVED JUST THAT IN YOUR FIRST ALBUM man! and as for the latest album SLMF ........... {SPLENDID} i dint even start yet...

    Hey guys whtsup ! You can call me as a die hard fan of THE PHENOMENON CALLED AS ENIGMA . Guys , ENIGMA is highly highly and severely UNDERRATED to begin with. I dont knw why we have music awards like grammy awards and others ,they have become so commercial that they lost their souls. Music by Enigma is the kind of music I would prefer to call it as the MOST PURE MUSIC outhere. I mean ,there is no match to this kind of music anywhere. And I'm not just saying this. I was a teenager when started listening to Enigma ,now i'm in my late twenties , I still listen to the CROSS OF CHANGES , i think tells what

    It's one of my favorite albums from 2008. Has a nice touch of 'World Music', and a relaxed, engaging, and experimental feeling. Je T'Aime Till My Dying Day's probably my least fav track. Distorted Love's lyrics are a little out there but it's very viscerally sung. The special edition packaging is nice, but not quite on par with some of their earlier albums. The extra tracks are definitely worth it though. My sis and I got a good laugh from the official videos too. Must be a cultural relativity thing.

    For those who dream to cognise the mysteries of the World and Universe. The mysterious melodies in splendid arrangement contain elements of mysticism from Ambient, harmony from New-Age, wisdom from Ethno We wish pleasant listening to you.

    I'm not quite sure what I think of it yet. After two tracks it seems ok, but I hope things improve...
