A Posteriori is the sixth studio album by German musical project Enigma. In December 2006, the album was nominated in the Best New Age Album category in the 2007 Grammy Awards. Three years after the release of Voyageur, an album that took Enigma in a new direction, Michael Cretu took another step and released A Posteriori. This latin title is often used in philosophy where it describes what is essentially knowledge through experience (e.g. "after the fact"). In style the release shares more with Voyageur than the four first Enigma albums, but it has taken the approach of this new direction even further. The album introduces sort of a hybrid culture that lends itself to many different directions, but still revolves around a common point in a more straight-forward manner than before.

Voyageur is the fifth studio album by the German musical project Enigma and released in 2003. Voyageur was considered to be Enigma's most different album ever created, due to Enigma's drastic changes in sound as compared to the previous four albums. The project's signature shakuhachi flutes, Gregorian chants and tribal chants found on the earlier albums were all but gone on Voyageur.

Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! was the third album released as part of Michael Cretu's Enigma project. It's style built on and extended the first two releases, offering a well-crafted album with mysterious sounds, original ideas, and philosophical lyrics. The title is French and translates to "The King Is Dead, Long Live The King", foreshadowing some of the texts contained within. The most recognized song from this release was Beyond The Invisible, though Michael Cretu has stated that his favorite track on the album is actually Morphing Thru Time.

THE CROSS OF CHANGES (ENIGMA 2) is the second studio album by the German musical project Enigma, headed by Romanian-German musician and producer Michael Cretu. The Cross Of Changes is a musical step forward but it nevertheless incorporates all of the instinctive elements that MCMXC a.D. does but in a completely new guise.

A trim, at times, almost balletic Falstaff. If that seems a ludicrous contradiction, I should explain that it refers to Dutoit's spirited interpretation of the work, not the central character, though Falstaff himself has shed a few pounds in the process but is no less loveable. Indeed, Dutoit's swift tempo for the second section (at the Boar's Head) has the theme for Falstaff's 'cheerful look and pleasing eye' sounding less like Tovey's understandable misunderstanding of it as ''blown up like a bladder with sighing and grief''. The trimming down process is abetted by the Montreal sound, with lean, agile strings and incisive brass (the horns are magnificent). Some may feel a lack of warmth in the characterization. I certainly felt that the first presentation of Prince Harry's theme (0'40'') could have done with a richer string sonority. Doubtless, too, there will be collectors who, at moments, miss the generous humanity of Barbirolli, or the Straussian brilliance of Solti. And although Mackerras is wonderful in the dream interludes and Falstaff's death, the start of his fourth section, with Falstaff's rush to London only to be rejected by the new King, is short on teeming excitement and anticipation.

The Screen Behind The Mirror released as the fourth album in the Enigma line. It brought the project to what would become a maturity of the "first age" in the saga, being the last album to use the old Enigma style where fresh ideas infused with mystery, philosophy, and sensuality were extensively coupled with samples from other and older works. In the case of The Screen Behind The Mirror this was done with Carl Orff's famous Carmina Burana, most specifically O Fortuna, a movement lamenting the woes of fortune. Especially Gravity of Love and Camera Obscura makes use of it.
