After hearing the excellent The Painted Caravan by former Dead Can Dance percussionist, Peter Ulrich, I was expecting great things from this album, but it was a huge disappointment. To me it sounds like a failed attempt at fusing elements of Hildegarde von Bingen and Arab music, with a bit of Bowie thrown in, but resulting in only noise. It isn't an altogether unpleasant noise, but it's just noise nonetheless. It is the only DCD album I've heard, so hopefully it's not representative.
If you like this sort of fusion, I can wholeheartedly recommend The Painted Caravan, which explores similar themes, but blends them in an altogether more creative and satisfying manner.
