Have you ever listened/heard something so beautiful in sound and feeling that it leaves you completely speechless and lost for words as how to describe what your hearing? - THIS IS Dead Can Dance! You will NEVER hear anything like this from any other artist of this time period. They are unique in every aspect. There music cannot be categorised into any one genre due to their vast array of styles, including eastern/western, from medieval/renaissance to modern day sounds. There music takes you through your deepest thoughts whilst simultaneously out of your mind to different places beyond this existence. This may, to some people, sound tacky. BUT this is exactly how i feel about this group and their music.
If you're a fan of Dead Can Dance then this is a must have album. For a start, MOST of the songs on this album including the fantastic opener 'Rakim' are only featured for live performance and are NOT renditions of previous studio recordings. However, there are a couple such as 'Yulunga (Sprirt Dance)', 'The Song of the Sibyl', 'Cantara' and 'The Wind that Shakes the Barley' which do more than justice to their studio counterparts, with both Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard living up to, if not surpassing their studio performances. They are one the best (if not the best) live groups i have listened to.
If you've never heard of Dead Can Dance or their music, then this is a great starting album (although to be honest all of their albums are fantastic!). This album along 'Aion' were the first two albums i heard, forever making me a fan of this amazing group.

One of the very best albums of 1994. It would be a pity to buy this merely as a retrospective of a now sadly defunct band airing their best-of numbers live. At the time it felt like a confident progression as well as a consolidation of the strands of their unique, idiosyncratic path and features plenty of new material. The sonic textures of their more adventurous work featuring massed percussion or medieval and 'world' instrumentation are perfectly integrated with the simpler folk-influenced melodic songs in the shape-shifting flow of the performance. It's well worth getting the video of the same name to soak up the full atmosphere. The production, dynamics and expression in tracks like 'Cantara' better the studio originals and are quite awesome. This came at a time when more studio or sample based artists seemed to be converging on territory furrowed by Dead Can Dance. Percussion and ethereal vocals with ethnic influences seemed to abound in the mid-nineties and The Future Sound Of London famously sampled Lisa Gerrard for their massive Papua New Guinea hit (check out such links on the London Labyrinth web site). Portishead managed the trick of following up their Dummy album by performing apparently studio-bound music live in the same year but DCD had peaked. Their London gig in 96 was cancelled, they made one more rather lack-lustre studio album before they drifted apart and never capitalised on the full potential offered here. Indulge yourself in this finely-detailed, fascinating, peculiar, wide-ranging and powerfully affecting music. Let it pick you up and sweep you away.

DCD's transient power lies in stimulating the imagination without ingestation, evoking mystical ancient times and dark spaces within with an incandescent light. Incense burning in Byzantine churches, or silent masses in Celtic windswept barren hillsides recreated in crystalised forms. A tour around the blackened tunnels and moist labrynths of the mind,opening up the collective structures to wander within tunnels of constraint. DCD bring those silent magical realms to life with silvering glitter and pungent perfume conjuring 50's and 60's filmic thematics. All undertaken with detailed care missing from the original kitsch orchestrations. Returning back to European roots viewed from outside, recast in grand scopes hailing majestic thematics of decaying Grecian marble columns as Gods scatter rose petals to provide fortune and misfortune to those dwelling below.

No need to break through to the other side as this delivers, but as it grows and the thematics swirl it brings forms of dissonance between the composed world of heaven and the world inhabited everyday. The incongruences should be a kindle to remake this world in the image of the one evoked. Instead after it finishes it creates a slumber into the arm chair and the heave of a sigh of regret.

Indeed this is a great album, much like the others, but well worth having. Dead Can Dance have the ability to take you to a higher plain of being (Track 14 especially)and the musical talant to bring it out time after time. This was the first album i heard and has had the greatest effect.

This is a special, limited de-luxe edition. It is a STEREO, HYBRID SACD - in other words, it is not a multi-channel release but it CAN be played on a regular CD player and does NOT require special SACD hardware. The album has been re-mastered by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab in the USA and these pressings are packaged in Japanese, mini-vinyl replicas of the original sleeves, including replicas of any inner sleeves, plus an additional booklet with lyrics.
