Yeh, right, not so much Novocaine For the Soul, as Mogadon For the Masses here Enigma try to salvage their current flop release as the world finally realises 'hey, got one Enigma album, got them all'. Enigma make Kenny G concerts look exciting.

***

Enigma attempt to mine the same territory as Natacha Atlas but go for the overkill with Rollo-type production fighting for attention with the Phil Collins style vocals.

Lovely keyboard string sounds. Enigma have a whole library of them, and there's another on this ridiculously titled single. However, the keyboard sounds are about the only interesting thing here, and last time we checked, the only people interested in that are, err, keyboardists. Everyone else can muse over what inspired Michael "Enigma" Cretu to water his sampled-soundscape project down to the point where it's become Progressive Rock for New Age yuppies.
