Why This Album Is So Great:

If you're only gonna own one album with ambient dance music, this will have to be it. Enigma was more than anyone else the band (actually, it's just one guy) that launched the genre and made it fashionable to be a monk again...Light a candle, put this album on and listen to it in its entirety. It's really a totally relaxing experience - with a few bumps on the way. Since this album, Michael Cretu has tried to follow up with the same recipe a couple of times without the same success. This remains the classic. In addition to the original album, this edition features four extra mixes of already known songs.

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10):8
