Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A greatest-hits package sampling four Enigma discs released between 1990 and 2000, LSD splendidly documents the influential output of Michael Cretu, a techno-bohemian who successfully creates cinematic, otherworldly New Age-like musical suites. Now, more than a decade removed from the arrival of Sadeness (Part 1) and its eyebrow-raising mix of sacred and sensual subplots, people can debate whether Cretu's music represents savvy commercial calculation or satisfying art. LSD suggests a split decision, though tracks with intriguing blends of atmosphere and rhythm, such as "Gravity of Love," "T.N.T. for the Brain" and "Morphing Thru Time," reveal an inventiveness that demonstrates Cretu is capable of more than sophisticated novelty tunes. Two new songs, neither especially noteworthy, open this package. Meanwhile, remastered older tracks segue beautifully to exude a satisfying, seamless unity. Big bonus: run time exceeds 76 minutes. --Terry Wood

Product Description

All the hits in remastered versions. Includes: 'Sadeness (Part I),' 'Return To Innocence,' 'Gravity Of Love' and the new song, 'Turn Around.'

Enigma has never failed to amaze me with their mix of New age, Club, and rock. They are probably the only group who have not put out one bad song in my opinion.
MCMXC had a very dark, Gothic feel. MCMXC to me is probably their best album even to this day after all these years. Sadeness mixed the use of Gregorian Chants, club beat and New Age to create one of the best New Age songs I,ve ever heard.
The follow-up CROSS OF CHANGES was almost completely different with a much brighter sound and less of the Gregorian Chants and instead incorporated some Native American and Maori chants. Return To Innocence is almost totally opposite to Sadeness because Innocence is very sunny where Sadeness was very dark.
LE MOR EST MORT VIVE LE ROI! was like the child of the two previous albums with the brightness of CROSS mixed in with the Gregorian sounds of MCMXC and with some new sounds that resulted in an album with a sort of aquatic sound. Child In Us is the best song on the CD. I almost call it the daytime version of Sadeness.
SCREEN BEHIND THE MIRROR is completely different from CROSS or LE ROI EST MORT. It had a much more sultry industrial medieval sound. I almost compare it more to MCMXC. The title track borrowed the drum loop from Sadeness.
This collection of songs from each of those albums showcases among some of the best works Cretu has ever come up with plus the songs still blend well even though they are from different albums. I never thought Mea Culpa could blend well into Push The Limits.
The big bonus to this CD that makes it stand out so well from other Greatest Hits CDs is the remixing of some of the tracks to give them a totally different feel. TNT for the Brain on it's parent album has a relatively poppish sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars T.N.T. For The Brain March 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
(The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom. - W. Blake)
I always knew that Enigma was an incredible band I just never knew how much until now. All I owned before this was their latest full-length release "The Screen Behind The Mirror". Almost two years went by before I considered buying something else by them and that's when (to my good fortune) "LSD: Love Sensuality Devotion" came out which contains all of their biggest hits such as "Sadness" and "Return To Innocence", along with new favorites (to me, that is) "T.N.T. For The Brain", "I Love You, I'll Kill You" ... (love the title!) ..., "Principles Of Lust", "Mea Culpa", and "Age Of Loneliness" which has Egyptian sound styling with Middle Eastern singing. (I think...) Other highlights include their brand new song "Turn Around", which has an edgier sound compared to its usual norm, "Gravity Of Love" and "Silence Must Be Heard" which both feature the lush female vocals of Ruth-Ann (which sings in the band Olive), and "Beyond The Invisible" which bares a striking resemblance to the closing song they play in the end of my favorite fantasy movie "Legend". (Watch the movie and then listen to this to understand what I mean...) So if you enjoy gregorian style singing with heavy breathing and words of passion and inspiration amidst subtle, sometimes pounding grooves than Enigma's Greatest Hits compilation is for you. Die-hard fans are recommended to buy this simply for "The Landing" and "Turn Around" while newcomers are recommended to buy this simply because it's the perfect place to start.
Another good thing about this album is how all of the songs blend in seamlessly together, just like they do in their other records. It also ends with a beautifully ethereal song called "The Cross Of Changes" which reminds me of the type of music you'd find on a Elevation (various artists) cd, which I also recommend...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and enchanting October 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Enigma fan. I find Enigma's music soothing and comforting to relax too. Although I own all four of their albums, I wanted to buy their greatest hits especially after hearing one of their new songs "Turn Around". I believe that "The Landing" and "Turn Around" are the two new tracks on the cd, or never been released. I particularly dug "Turn Around", such a breath-taking epic. "The Landing" made for a good opening track to lead the listener into this enchanting album. All the well-known tracks on this cd is found such as "Sadeness" and "Return to Innocence". My personal favorite songs were included on this cd such as "Gravity of Love", "Mea Culpa", "Beyond the Invisible", and "Morphing Thru Time". Over 70 minutes long, I was not disappointed in this cd. This cd is great for casual listeners interested in hearing only Enigma's more familiar songs. Definitely one of the best greatest hits compilations ever to be released in my honest opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars LSD: Luscious Sound Devotee! January 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
LOVE SENSUALITY DEVOTION: THE GREATEST HITS by Enigma is just that. I have the first 3 Enigma albums, and have always enjoyed them because each album has familiar elements sonically, but Michael Cretu assembled them with new themes each time.
This compilation includes music from the 4 albums including SCREEN, plus 2 new tracks. The new tracks are OK, but they don't grab the ear as do the other songs. The mix is well done, putting hard-driving rock with more ambient music. One track flows into the next, so it makes for an excellent total listening experience!
Best when you're not doing anything but sitting with your eyes closed taking it all in. I find it relaxing and engaging music...
A fantastic hits collection for anyone...whether you like it loud or soft!!
