List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

List of the best Enigma albums, including pictures of the album covers when available. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Enigma albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in 1990 by Bucharest, Romania native Michael Cretu, Enigma brought Gregorian chants to the masses with their debut MCMXC a.D. (1990) and Seven Lives Many Faces (2008).

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Enigma singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Enigma album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Enigma album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

List is made up of albums like The Cross of Changes (1993) and the more recent The Fall of a Rebel Angel (2016). This list of popular Enigma CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
