First up, let me say that I have been a devoted fan of DCD since the early 1980s, and I have all their solo recordings (although not all of Gerrard's many film scores) too. So this is a great year for me: a new album and a world tour.

I was tempted to say that the title of the review is enough: if you know the band, you will know what you're getting. However, that's not enough, for two reasons. Firstly, which DCD is this? The goth orchestral group of Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun (Remastered), the medieval group of Aion or the world music mashup group of Spiritchaser (Answer, it's the latter)? Secondly, it's been so long since the last album that a whole generation has grown up without the band that it's worth writing a more extensive review in the hope that others will discover a truly unique band.

Dead Can Dance are Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. Gerrard is a singer with an almost supernatural voice - her range and ability to change tone make her virtually incomparable in 'popular' music - only Elizabeth Fraser comes close. She is also now an accomplished composer and collaborator, her work on the Gladiator soundtrack being her big breakthrough.

A new album by DCD! After only 16 years wait! Brilliant!

Actually, it was with some trepidation that I picked this one up since I wasn't that keen on Spiritchaser (the last one). The good news, to my ear at least, is that this is more like the style of DCD of old - Lisa Gerrard is magnificent and ethereal, particularly on 'Return of the She-King' and even Brendan Perry (whose vocals I am less keen on) turns in a good performance.

I remember listening to them as a student back in the 1980s and it's the same sort of sound, if only more layered and sure of itself. Give it a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.

This is music for the soul and it is just as good as anything they have released before. Almost a masterpiece and a very welcome return to form. But then again, they have never let me down and they have never released a bad album, so this was to be expected. If you like Dead Can Dance, there really is no reason to hesitate and not buy this cd. It's great and moving.

DCD new musical work sounds great! The music is delicate, effective and at times quite moving. Like all DCD prior works Anastasis has a life of its own. The CD is comprised of 8 songs. Lisa and Brendan sing four songs each. "Return of the She-King" makes it the most special song and in a way acts as the climax of this great CD having Lisa and Brendan singing it together. Lisa presents us all her talent with her beautiful voice. Brendan's voice and lyrics what can I say.....just fantastic!!! Musically, DCD performs another unique combination of instruments and compositions. Musically, this CD is one of my favorite DCD works for its depth of sound and leveled tempo. Although; synthesizers may be the protagonist at times of the background music, they are beautifully and brilliantly executed. The sounds are very visual and often cinematic. Anastasis is another 5 star DCD musical gem. So as I mentioned on the title a big thank you to DCD for the "resurrection" and "regeneration"! See you in Buenos Aires on December 6th!

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Nov. 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All the elementals are there, so in places it soars, but at first it appeared a cache of soul had gone for a wonder.

However repeated listenings brings out all the multiple textures especially on a decent system. It is an album of layers sung into a masculine and feminine timbre half, anima and animus, masc and fem, light and day.

Perry's voice takes on the cadences of Ian Curtis and then lets them drift into the hollow space. Lisa dips and soars with the majesty of a sprite, whilst he skims across the surface. Great delivery, great sounds when blasted through the speakers to bring out the full orchestral panoply.

Within the background the music shines, glistens lilts and brings constant surprises. Far from being background music, this plays the theme tunes to a silent night between the silk sheets, as the opium pipe, left to languish burns itself at two ends. Meanwhile the bed creaks in time to the silent slithers of Anastasis.

Well we can all dream and this assists.

Literally can't stop playing this album. Haunting and beguiling as you'd expect from Dead Can Dance, but very layered - no two listens are the same. Wonderful album from a band that transcended genre a while ago. Interesting sounds (Lisa Gerrard's voice is as sublime as ever), ideas and images, drawing from Ancient Greek concepts and the collective unconscious....it's that kind of album. Truly brilliant.
