5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best
Don't listen to the criticism of this as a weak album, I've got all their albums and this is one of the best. The smooth blending of North African, Native American and an overall gothic splendour is incredible. The Song of the Stars and the Song of the Disposessed are just beautiful, an essential DCD album (and they finished on a high note)

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead and (Not Quite) Buried
One of the finest, most atmospheric and moving bands ever produced their weakest and to date penultimate album in Spiritchaser (would be a long time indeed till their return with 'Anastasis' in 2013). This retains superb production values, fine instrumentation and haunting vocals, but somehow manages to blend into a sameness-feel all the way through. Only the epic...

This review is from: Spiritchaser (Audio CD)
One of the finest, most atmospheric and moving bands ever produced their weakest and to date penultimate album in Spiritchaser (would be a long time indeed till their return with 'Anastasis' in 2013). This retains superb production values, fine instrumentation and haunting vocals, but somehow manages to blend into a sameness-feel all the way through. Only the epic 'Indus' (borrowing heavily from the Beatles 'Within, Without You' - and acknowledged by DCD) stands out. Lisa Gerrard's vocals are lovely and haunting and Brendan Perry adds a fine contrast with his own. It's an album worth having, but you really should buy any of the duo's other releases for a true taste of what they were about.'Spiritchaser' just vindicates their decision to take a very long break. Do yourself a favour and check their other stuff out.Buy this one last of all.
