Great mini EP.
Agreed on the part that they included "Return To Innocence" instead of "Rivers Of Believe".
All version included are edits except Mea Culpa which is actually the Orthodox Version.

No regrets getting this. The remastering is superb.

Great sound! Just order it with no hesitations. Awesome 10'' purple vinyl.

Lovely 10" purple colored vinyl of this very limited Polydor/ Universal records Germany release. The vinyl sounds great, I found no issues with it what so ever, & the picture sleeve is also quite nice looking. If you would like to get this release act quickly, many other record sellers on line are all sold out & they will not be getting restocks of this 10"! This release is a beautiful addition for any Enigma fan/ collector out there.

I'm really happy they included the song Return To Innocence, because this is my favorite song, and that's why I bought this record! Great record!

Why on earth would anyone include "Return To Innocence" on a "Sadeness" reissue ? That just makes no sense. Sadeness, Mea Culpa and Principles Of Lust (Find Love) were all part of the same album. But "Return To Innocence" was not. It's a song from the second album.

Can anyone comment on the sound quality? Has this been remastered?

Strictly Limited 10inch, Purple Vinyl - like Mini "Best of EP"
