Master of Future Age Music : Enigma…

Enigma is an electronic musical project founded by Michael Cretu (Romanian musician), David Fairstein and Frank Peterson in 1990… Cretu, who based his recording studio A.R.T. Studios in Ibiza, Spain in the early 1990s is both the composer and the producer of the project… His former wife Sandra often provided vocals on Enigma tracks…. Jens Gad co-produced and played guitar on three of the Enigma albums….


“The idea behind ENIGMA is to make the impossible possible… As long as I don’t repeat myself, I won’t get bored… That’s why I always have to start something new, invent things!!!!”

I have been an Enigma fan nearly for a decade now… In all of that time, I have never been happy with it being categorized as New Age… Enigma has always been decades ahead of their contemporaries…. Their 2008 release, Seven Lives Many Faces, proves that they are still leading the pack….  A better designation would be Future Age

From beginning to end, Seven Lives Many Faces is a great trip… If you were an Enigma fan in the 1990’s and have not heard them in a while, this is a wonderful way to get re-acquainted… If you have never heard Enigma, this is one hell of an introduction…
