Biography

On the cover of Anastasis, Dead Can Dance’s first album in 16 years: a field of sunflowers, ripened, and then blackened, by the sun, standing with sad, slightly crowned heads. Less dead than dormant, the heads and stems will one day be chopped, but then via the roots, will return. For Anastasis is the Greek word for ‘resurrection’ and the seemingly dead will dance ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant collection of DCD tracks 11 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant collection of some of the best work DCD have done. The sound is an ethereal mix of Gregorian chants and medieval music combined with a blend of newer influences. It's like listening to a pre-Raphaelite picture. There are few tracks on this collection that I would not have chosen myself. The album starts well and soon enough you find yourself in a world of beautiful haunting music, reluctant to come back to earth.
This is an excellent choice for people looking for their first DCD album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This collection has always frustrated me as, in my mind, it is possibly the best compilation that could be made.I have tried time and time again to better it , but it just flows beautifully.I have been an avid DCD follower for a very long time now and it is my opinion that this collection makes a supurb doorway into the enigma that is DCD.It has both the light ,the dark (geeese!)the ....well its very good, definately another snow,candles and red wine experience. Also if anyone knows where i can get a copy of"the Garden of the Arcane Delights" please let me know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative? New age? Folk? 16 Mar 2006
By bernie TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Your pick. But this is a unique collection that takes traditional sounds and expands on them to include different instrumentation, a really exotic voice, and a feel to take you to alternate realities.
The music is not consistent from one track to the next but it is all in the umbrella of Dead Can Dance. To extract what you really want you may need to buy a few of the albums and do a little ripping.
If you are going to buy one album I would suggest starting with this one. Although I found most track intriguing my favorites are 2 (Song Of Sophia), 12 (The Song Of The Sybil) and 8 (The Host Of Seraphim). The only problem with Song of Sophia is that it is too short.
Track 7 (Wilderness) had the sound and feel of a Gregorian chant.
I guess I am a sucker for Lisa Gerrard I am thinking of purchasing “The Mirror Pool”. For the most part Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard play off one another and picked up most of their multicultural sounds while working in Melbourne.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good introductory 25 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good introductory CD to the band, but it's perhaps not really a "best of" CD. I can think of several tracks that should be here, where's "Persephone", "summoning of the muse", "Black sun".. and so many more? The music is difficult to classify - it's like world music influenced by medieval, classical civilisation, sometimes arabic.. and the amazing voice of Lisa Gerrard. If your not sure if you'll like them, then get this, it's a good starter. But there are many more treasures to be found on their other CD's too
