It's hard to believe that this is now 30 years old:
Enigma MCMXC
and the followup album:
Enigma Cross of Changes
By the end of the 1970's it appeared that the concept album was dead, and then, 20 years later, these came along.
Headphones highly recommended.

I first heard Enigma while at a St. Patrick's day singles dance party in Los Angeles in what had been the Playboy Club, with a lighted glass dance floor. I asked the DJ what he was playing.

Too bad 90% of the people only know them for their one and only radio hit that got copped for the `96 Olympics.

Probably because of the ultra simple chorus:

Woy aie hai o wai aie yeh (aie-yeh aie-yeh aie-yeh)
People used to think it was Native American or Hawaiian/Polynesian

Same with Deep Forest also with a rich catalogue - and people only know
THEM by THEIR one and only radio hit:

Sa sisa sacob dela dalou'a
Boralea'e borale mi komi oula
Etawuae'o ela'o coralia wu'aila
Ilei pandera zel e' tomu pere no mo mai
