Michael Cretu, the driving force behind Enigma, is back with the fourth Enigma release, and it’s a great one. ‘The Screen Behind the Mirror’ is a sweeping soundcape, a pan cultural tapestry filled with rock flourishes.
Surprises abound. The legendary choir part from “O Fortuna” from the world famous oratorio “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff is beautifully integrated as a leitmotif, and the perfect blend of this mix peaks with “Gravity of Love”, featuring the vocals of Ruth Ann. The album works has a whole, and reveals many hidden treasures on repeated listenings.
