A statement of mystery. Since the inception of Enigma, the music and the visuals all had themes of life, love and even in some instances, religion. But this all goes back to the Marqui De Sade's theme of church vs. sexuality. Hence, Sadeness...
The unexplained question.
The visuals presented in the DVD do not tell complete stories.
They are surreal and dreamlike. Some mixed with strange situations.
In "Sadeness" a writer dreams of the eternal conflict of devotion and wanting as we see the ruins of old
cathedral pass before a beautiful woman.
"Mea Culpa" in it's undying words of self acusation "Take me,
I'm yours, I'm guilty...". A woman in armored gloves wafts in through images of artifacts repeating in breathy sighs "I'm guilty..."
"Rivers of Belief" a beautiful montage of outdoor visions of a
warrior king weilding a sword to this unusual and beautiful remix which features a sample of Bach's "Toccata and Fugue".
"Beyond the Invisible" takes a girl from her normal homelife to a most strange world of daydreams that seem to devour her.
"TNT for the Brain" is by far the most strange. A man with eyes closed with eyes opened watches himself in situations with women who only tempt him with their sensuality and beguile. A woman sings as drops fall reflecting her face make an arresting image.
"Gravity of Love" revolves around a person wrapped in white unable to escape this debauched masquerade party. Themes of paralyisis and debauchery play through. Like watching a Francis Bacon painting!
