Dead and (Not Quite) Buried,
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.
