5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable start of a genre, 27 Aug 2007
This review is from: Sadisfaction (1991) (Audio CD)
The album's title is a melding of the words 'sad' and 'satisfaction', in a similar way that Enigma's track Sadeness. So Sad shares some common elements with that group's hit: lonesome Gregorian chants against strong beats with breathy female vocals. Once In a Lifetime was first performed on this album, before being interpreted by Sarah Brightman and Princessa. The best track on the album is the epic The Quiet Self while the most surprising song is Monastry, which also uses Gregorian chants, but this time supported by hard-rock guitars making it a fun, enjoyable piece. Interestingly the backing of this arrangement was later used in the song Rain found only on Sarah Brightman's single The Second Element. Frank Peterson was credited as F. Gregorian as he had been on MCMXC a.D. while Susana Espelleta, who was married to him at the time, was credited as Peterson.
