Product Description

A collaboration between Rozz Williams and former Christian Death bandmate Gitane Demone, Dream Home Heartache obviously takes its name from the Roxy Music chestnut "In Every Dream Home a Heartache," which is both the opening and closing track. In between, Williams and Demone also tackle Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression" (which unfortunately doesn't come off well at all), as well as five tracks of their own. The overall sound is on the pretty side of goth, with delicate piano, accordion, and tasteful synthesizers supporting Williams and Demone's cabaret-influenced vocals. Demone's two contributions, "These Vulnerable Eyes" and the nearly a cappella "Moon Without a Tear," are the album's highlights, but Williams acquits himself well on his own songs, adopting a Scott Walker-like voice that suits the darkly sardonic material well. This is quite possibly Williams' most appealing work outside of Christian Death.

Format: Audio CD
This album sees the reunion of Rozz Williams and Gitane Damone, the creative hub of classic goth band Christian Death. It sees them exploring further their interest in German cabaret music, which was first touched on on the classic Christian Death LP "Ashes". Don't let this odd idea put you off, this cd has these two singing at their best, and while being experimental, it never veers off into being unlistenable like many of Rozz's solo projects have. The covers of Roxy Music's "Dream Home Heartache" and Hendrix's "Manic Depression" bring new depth to these tracks. Standout track on the album is the heartbreaking "Flowers" sung by Rozz, in which he beautifully sings about death and heroin addiction. A fitting swansong for Rozz.

if you love rozz williams, its a must. 12 May 2001
By Joseph Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this album is truley one of the most depressing albums i have ever heard! but it is also a great album. Rozz Williams and Gitane Demone are always a beautiful combination. this album i will recomend. this is a beautiful album made up of paino, Gitane's pretty vocals and rozz's sorrow filled voice. if you are a rozz williams fan, and you still feel Rozz Williams was "Christian Death" at their greatest! you need this album. this one is truely a uniuqe expierance in his shortend career. he gets really personal for example the song "flowers"...a sad but true testimony of his life with herion. this album will suprise you, once again of his multi talents. a truely heart breaking album.and i love it. Rest In Peace, rozz williams.

A brilliant, dark, intimate album 8 Jun. 2001
By Josh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a rather intimate collection of torch songs. The music here largely centers around organ and piano, occasionally adding sparse layers of ambience using other instruments. With beautifully dark and atmospheric tracks to sparse piano torch songs to an interesting cover of Hendrix's "Manic Depression" to the accordian-driven ballad "A World Apart" to the ambience of "Moon Without A Tear", the album is completely brilliant from the opening title track (a cover of Bryan Ferry's "In Every Dream Home A Heartache") to its album-closing turbulant and claustrophic reprise.
Rozz and Gitane share vocal duties here, both being in top form. Gitane provides her characteristic torch style vocals, while Rozz's vocals are in his familiar half-spoken/half-sung poetic style. The lyrics here are also very touching and personal, adding to the album's incredible level of intimacy.
This album is definitely a must have for Rozz Williams fans, as it is arguably Rozz at his most vulnerable and honest. Its gloomy and intimate atmosphere creates the ultimate album for candelight listening.

This album is some ov Rozz Williams' most hauntingly melodic 5 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After several years of work in the "gothic rock" genre, Rozz collaborates with Gitane Demone in this lounge act ov an album. Dreamhome Heartache is a progress album. One can clearly see that the underground's prince ov darkness is moving into realms once left to his spoken word albums. Taking that raw emotion and pharmaceutical mysticism and combining it with the talent of Gitane sets an eerie vocal foreground, with the tones ov a single piano chilling the listener through much ov this release. "Flowers" is by far the most melancholy ov all ( sounding at times like drug rehab therapy sessions ) and Gitane's cover ov "manic depression" could make even Hendrix turn an ear. Well thought out track placement and mixing helps this heartache flow smoothly into the mind ov anyone within earshot, and helps keep the listener focused on the feeling ov the album as a whole. Rozz Williams has surpassed himself again(to noone's surprise).

The last and Best of Rozz 19 Feb. 2007
By BellaStrega - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was never meant to be or compared to ANYTHING Christian Death. Considering the nonsense that happened between Valor and Rozz Williams, I think Rozz wanted to get away from anything with Christian Death at that point.

This collaboration with Gitane DeMone, is hauntingly beautiful. Rozz did something the way HE wanted to. The addition of Gitane, one of the last great vocalists from C.D. just made this album, top in my book. The way she sings Manic Depression...it so unbelievable. She's got the voice of a siren and boy does she use it. I wouldn't say 'belting out' the songs...but if you know how Ms. DeMone sings, then you know what I'm saying. :) "Flowers" sung by Rozz, just takes you to a time and place, that if you ever saw the old C.D. you'd have good memories...but then realize that Rozz is no longer with us, you are moved by this song. I can go on and on, but I won't. AS a true fan of these two talents, I must say, it's worth it....

Very Un-Rozz like, but still very good. 19 Jun. 2004
By Linda M. Versluis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was surprised when I picked up this album. I've heard Christian Death before, but it sounded nothing like this. Rozz and Gitane (Both Christian Death members) created a side project, combining piano, accordians, and synthesizer in a moody blend of very dark and personal music. This album reveals a subdued and personal version of Williams, a side I'd never hope to see. Very good. I'd recommend this album to Rozz's fans, or even fans of folk music or bands like Black Heart Procession or The Cure.
