En-Tact is an album by The Shamen, released in 1990. It was the first Shamen album to feature Mr C, and the last to feature Will Sinnott (who died on 23 May 1991). It fused the band's past psychedelic rock sounds with the rave act it became, developing a style that represented multicultural dance music.[citation needed]

Legacy[edit]

The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.[3]
