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.

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.

Norah Jones took liberty with her blockbuster success to set out on a musical walkabout, spending a good portion of the decade following 2004's Feels Like Home experimenting, either on her own albums or on a variety of collaborations. Day Breaks, released four years after the atmospheric adult alternative pop of the Danger Mouse-produced Little Broken Hearts, finds Jones returning home to an extent: it, like her 2002 debut Come Away with Me, is a singer/songwriter album with roots in pop and jazz, divided between originals and sharply selected covers. Such similarities are immediately apparent, but Day Breaks is much slyer than a mere revival…

Reason, we are told, is what makes us human, the source of our knowledge and wisdom. If reason is so useful, why didn't it also evolve in other animals? If reason is that reliable, why do we produce so much thoroughly reasoned nonsense?

The decades of Western adulation for the Japanese 'economic miracle' failed to notice a key point: that in the pursuit of this miracle the Japanese had turned their country into a degraded, concrete shambles - a wilderness of bad planning, corruption and crowding.
