Here's the thing - all the sounds, both vocal and instrumental are extremely evocative and you'll never have heard anything like like it. But... What Gerrard sings is not another language and there is no meaning in her words, just emotion. If you can live with that, then it is simply awesome. But for me, it detracts a star.
I would listen to Opium from their recent album on repeat - and have done on a recent flight - as it is far more rewarding due to the marriage of insightful lyrics and mood.
But there is a whole lot of mood on display here and it really should be bought and tasted. I can't gee enough of Host of the Seraphim. This track is worth the price of the CD alone.
I'd encourage you to try.
