Reversed chants signal the start of "Sadeness Reprise " and continues with a short piano theme based on the earlier shakuhachi flutes. The flute returns as chants of " Hosanna " gradually bring "Principles of Lust" to an end.

Chirps from electronic birds at the beginning, mixed with a slow beat [3] and sounds of a piano leads to Sandra's whispers and ends with some samples of Callas singing the aria '"Ces lettres!

Ces lettres! The rain at the beginning of " Mea Culpa " is taken from the introduction of " Black Sabbath " by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath. A bowl falls to the ground and breaks, leading into "Knocking on Forbidden Doors". The drum beats in the song were made to resemble the sound of a door being knocked. A guitar enters and slips aside quietly for Gregorian chants, this time a part of " Salve Regina ", and fading into the "Back to the Rivers of Belief", another three-part track.

It begins with "Way to Eternity", featuring composer John Williams ' five-toned notes from the science fiction film Close Encounters of the Third Kind , which leads to mellow Gregorian chants. The beat from "Sadeness" returns with violins for the start of the second part, "Hallelujah".

The triangle and voice from the first track reappears and repeats itself. The final section, " The Rivers of Belief ", features Cretu singing the chorus. Incidentally, the sentence about the seventh seal enters at the seventh minute and seventh second of the seventh track on some pressings of the album. The music closes with shakuhachi flutes, Cretu's vocals, and a falling star effect followed by the "Enigma horn" i. The song fades out and, when the album is played on repeat mode, fades right into the first song again creating a full loop.

The album's artwork was designed by Johann Zambrysky, who would design the covers for the next four Enigma albums. It depicts a black frame surrounding a silhouette of a figure being enshrouded in a bright light, and a Christian cross in the lower centre of the album for emphasis towards the themes of the album.

The pleasure of satisfying a savage instinct, undomesticated by the ego, is uncomparably much more intense than the one of satisfying a tamed instinct. The reason is becoming the enemy that prevents us from a lot of possibilities of pleasure. If you believe in the light, it's because of obscurity, if you believe in happiness it's because of unhappiness, and if you believe in God then you'll have to believe in the devil.

The cover of the "Limited Edition" of the album is the same as for the original release, but has a grainy dark green background instead of black. The first million copies of the album also have a holograph of the monk and cross on top of the album instead of the normal art work.

  7. Guitar and male vocals add to the album version's try-anything-that-works approach, as do attempts at shuffling jazz beats and horns. If nothing quite equals that prime moment elsewhere on the album, MCMXC A.D. still trips out on the possibilities as it can, right from the opening "Voice of Enigma," inviting all listeners to sit back, relax, and take a gentle trip.
