I’m listening to an old CD … Enigma MCMXC a.D.
I love this CD. It rocked my world when I first found it. At that time, I didn’t notice that it had all kinds of sub-texts going on.
All I cared about was the beat. I had never heard that kind of mesmerizing synthetic beat before, and I could not get enough of it.
And the album is so sexy!
Later, when I actually listened to it, I did hear all the intelligence put into it. THe juxtapositions of desires inside a person. The music is very trace-like, and it nudges your thoughts in the direction of contemplating very deep desires, the desires of the spirit, soul and body.
Enigma was smart about it. They (he? I don’t even know) used a lot of very interesting sounds to let the listeners create their own train of thoughts.
I still love it.
Even though I’ve found additional sources of synthetic beats.
