Opinion of Erica Anderson from Minneapolis, MN

Push the limits

I think of all the four albums of original music that Enigma has put out, "The Screen Behind the Mirror" is by far the best album. It was pretty evident on the previous album that Enigma has stepped further away from the Gregorian chants which has now become all too popular in ambient/new age music. Here Michael Cretu furthers his experimentation with beats that are more trip hop and less new age. On "The Screen Behind the Mirror", Sandra Cretu chooses to limit her role as vocalist and for lead vocalist on the songs is Olive's Ruth-Ann who was in my book, the ideal vocalist. Her smooth, silky vocals were a right match with the electronic, ambient beats that Michael Cretu composed. On "The Screen Behind the Mirror", the music (well, most of it anyways) centers around a sample of Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana (O Fortuna)" which I thought was just great, although nothing original. Obviously the stand out track on this album has to be "Gravity of Love" with the stunning vocals by Ruth-Ann and the bombastic notes of "Carmina Burana". I found it extremely soothing to listen to "Smell of Desire" with its haunting melodies. "Modern Crusaders" is one of the best examples on this album that uses the Carl Orff track with the bombastic yet grandeur melodies. "Traces (Light and Weight)" almost sounds like it was composed underwater with those bleeps that the listener hears throughout the song. As much as I love Enigma's first two albums, I do think their more recent albums are by far the best out of the four, and especially "The Screen Behind the Mirror". You can hear the constant evolving in Michael Cretu's work.

Opinion of Patrick Randall from Rockville, MD

Landmark 2nd album bears 'Cross...' well.

Even though Enigma first made a name for itself with its single "Sadness Pt.1" off its debut album "MCMXC A.D.", it was the release of its sophomore effort, "Cross of Changes", that really established it as a major force in new age (and popular) music. The hit single, "Return to Innocence", is such a haunting and captivating song that it still finds radio play on regular rock/pop stations almost 10 years after its release. The tribal beats mixed with modern music and combined with an evocative choral solo power this simple song about realizing what's important in life (i.e. 'returning to innocence'). It still sends chills up my spine whenever it is played. The two bookend tracks to "Return..." have also found a wide distribution, although, not as radio singles, but as frequently used scores movie trailers. Track #2, "The Eyes of Truth" is frequently used in action film trailers, most notably for "The Matrix" (though, it did not appear on the soundtrack). Track #4, the chilling "I Love You ... I'll Kill You" has found play on such movie previews as Arnold Schwarzenneger's "Eraser". "The Eyes of Truth" is an amazing track as it plays slow, thumping beats before finishing with a flourish of a soaring chorus followed by a haunting female solo. There is one other truly standout track on "Cross of Changes"... "The Dream of The Dolphin". It evokes sense of spiritual peace with nature and is quite relaxing to listen to.

The beauty of this album is that, even with the separate standout songs, it flows together as one complete journey with each song feeding seamlessly into the next. "Cross of Changes" provides a memorable musical adventure for the listener and foreshadows the greatness to come on subsequent albums "Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi!" and "Screen Behind the Mirror".
