UPDATE

I had an email from the record company stating that they could not find fault with the record. I was a bit hesitant but reordered and it was fine, so 5 out of 5 for the album :-) I wonder if I was sent the previous reissue before as I am sure it had a different central sticker.

This review is for the 2016 vinyl reissue not the album itself (which is amazing) If I could give it one star I would.

Side one seems to be warped slightly and as the tracks go on the quality of sound gets more and more awful, also the final track seems to speed up and slow down and distorts. This is not my deck I have no problems with any other records. I also noticed that the Center seems misaligned as the needle is rocking back and forth. Apparently there were similar problems on the previous reissue as well.

Sloppy and really poor service from DCD as it would appear that no one checked that the fault was resolved.

Also NO response from them on their Facebook page to complaints, happy to promote and sell, less so to resolve issues?!!!

This first album from Dead Can Dance is in the opinion of I a must for fans of Dead Can Dance. I have since the early start of Dead Can Dance been listened to them, but never been a dedicated fan. After a concert at the "Roskilde Festival" at the Arena Stage this year (2013) I was so moved by their perfomance, that I am now a devoted fan. Their music touched my inner feelings in a way that only a handfull of bands is able to. And tears were flowing. Seldom have I've heard such a performance.

Their music seems to be a combination of traditional music from New Zeeland, classical music, pop and a touch of early 4AD rock!

My best recommendations

The entirity of this cd is more equal than the sum of it's parts! With it's moroccan influenced beats and rythmns, fluent throughout, if you 'aint been' chilled out before you hear this, then you will after! It is totally superb. It is not my usual style of music and is very much -an aquired taste, however it's non-intrusive quality and consistent soothing beats has a mellowing impact, that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. An absolute must for creating good karma etc (if you're in to that).

For the people who only know the later work this may be a little raw, but remember when this was released, there was nothing else like it! Still one of my favourites and in my top ten.

I was a late comer to the pleasures of Dead Can Dance so its taken a while for me to catch up. This was a great introduction to the original music DcD produce - joins a growing collection.

into me-it is MY favorite album of them all, SPLEEN and ARCANE being at 4.7 stars. I was beginning to think 'pop' music had entered into a vast wasteland,with no future- and had died. I then bought this-just because it was on 4AD. I was stunned by the instruments, playing, arrangements, vocals and material=their sound.
What became of the other lads who played on this-?
I hope Brendan and Lisa remember them when royalty checks roll in-have they disappeared-one played tympani on SPLEEN-and then-? Their playing was top notch- and so were some of the arrangements-if they had any say in them.

The subjects and lyrics put them so far above most of the dross around them, that I felt hope again, for music
This reminds me of the joys of Summer of 1984, and listening to it again-in better sound is -soul stirring;
I wonder if the 'Summer of Love' in 1967 was like this ?
Some dont give it full respect because it has an 80's guitar/goth motif. Meh!
The lyrics were profound with out being pretentious. Ocean, Fortune, WITW are my favorites.
AS they became more complex, eclectic and 'world' and the pretentions grew, I lost interest;
'How Fortunate the Man with None' -a fine piece im sure, but a little of this goes a long way
Dont get me wrong on DCD -the lyrics and subjects are generally well done.
But album after album it starts sounding like a 4AD Priest pontificating the nature of the universe.
With FULL respect for the man-does he ever feel/express joy-or smile? He is like a musical TARKOVSKY( a master, also)-continually profound, deep and serious-from what Ive listened to-and what I am generally drawn to;
DYING SUN and the rest I tried, but couldnt get into-and I enjoy eclectic music- PORTALS OF GRACE by Azam Ali is an example.
