At the tail end of 1997, The Enid released White Goddess, their tenth studio album. Unlike Tripping...White Goddess concerned itself less with dance/house rhythms or the current sounds of the day. In a sense, it has more in common with The Spell - a return to sublime instrumental storytelling and soundscapes, though with a greater sense of maturity in its composition, and less of the playfullness of their pre-Something Wicked output. This album sees the first credit for Max Read's Choir - an impressive (though undoubtedly laborious), multi-layered vocal technique he would develop in subsequent recordings, and which would become synonymous with the sound of the Journey's End trilogy albums.
After this, The Enid as a functioning entity was effectively put on ice - aside from the occasional live perfomances - for over a decade.
