Enigma's Michael Cretu and Jens Gad comprise Trance Atlantic Air Waves, an outlet in which the duo can give the light dance/new age treatment to their favorite songs from other bands. This album of covers includes remakes of the theme from Beverly Hills Cop ("Axel F."), Space's "Magic Fly," and even the Miami Vice theme ("Crockett's Theme") and the Alan Parsons Project's "Lucifer." A soft drum & bass sound underlies most of these compositions, along with Cretu's all-too-familiar trademark keyboard. Some of these tunes do work well. "Magic Fly" and "Pulstar" (the big Vangelis hit from way back when) are two of the more upbeat numbers, equally suitable background music for either dancing or relaxing. In the end the novelty starts to wear thin, but if the Propellerheads can show the influence of John Barry on their sleeves, why can't Enigma do the same with their favorite acts? --Jason Verlinde

"This is one more excellent work of Michael Cretu. I have read some reviews befor mine and frankly I just can't understand why they didn't like this CD. It's one of the greatest works of re-making well-known songs. Cretu has created songs, in which we can hear new sounds, never found anywhere else. Actually, this album consists of 7 well-known songs(from Vangelis to Moroder) and 3 of his own(Jens Gad has collaborated with him in creating it). All songs are very rythmic and are fulfilling you by a great power of energy(remember the name of this CD). This CD is like drug...yes yes, you're trying to get rid of it, but can't. I don't know whether it's good or not. Neverthelles, you'll like it quite much. A great deal has got L-42(probably 'Lullaby for two') which is the slowest and the most relaxive song here. Chase, AxelF, Lucifier are the most quickier and harder. Magic Fly is the compilation of so many new sounds and and thoughts that you even are in a little confusion, listening to it.Anyway, if you buy it, you won't be dissapointedd, believe me."

"First and foremost - THIS IS NOT ENIGMA. That's why it's called 'Trance Atlantic Air Waves'. It's a side project by Michael Cretu and Jens Gad - and it's a definite buy. Two of the most prominent artists in the world have gotten together (once again) to create a masterful work that combines modern electronics with some electronic covers from the 60's, 70's, and 80's. This is an amazing piece of work. Buy it - buy it now."

"Definitely not an Enigma album, but a must have for Enigma fans.
It's great to hear some covers AND originals from Jens Gad and
