iTunes Review

The first Dead Can Dance album recorded after Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry severed their romantic relationship, 1990’s Aion is, perhaps ironically, less stormy in tone than the albums that preceded it. It was recorded in a 19th-century church in the Irish countryside, a setting that enhanced the medieval and Renaissance motifs heard on “As the Bell Rings the Maypole Spins,” “Saltarello,” and “Mephisto.” “Black Sun” brought the duo as close to rock music as they'd been since the start of their career, but it was balanced by “Fortune Presents Gifts Not According to the Book.” An unadorned folk song, it's surely the most sweetly pastoral piece of their career. As usual, the duo didn’t confine themselves to one genre. “Radharc” coaxes Middle Eastern incantations into the mix, while “The End of Words” continues their longstanding love for Gregorian chants. It's “The Song of the Sibyl” that feels most definitively like Dead Can Dance, if only because it focuses on Gerrard's ribbon-like vocals. For all the band’s multifaceted ambitions, she remained the music’s overarching star.

Must Have

Are you kidding me? This album is a must have in any format, the songs work together for a remarkable expression of alternative, gorgeous festivity. Just close your eyes and get TURNED ON !!!

Rated a 4 ignoring my musical taste

The music is solid, the beat is great, and there are no mistakes. Really, it depends on what you like. In my opinion, this music is gothicky, pretty, haunting, festive . . . whatever you like, lol. I think it would help to listen to the previews. The voice is really nice. And I can't believe you can tell the difference between 2 formats, lol. I hear no difference between songs I have in one format and another!

cool! booklets

put them in the iTunes Plus format, and I'll be glad to shell out some money for these! not until then, sorry!

Dead Can Dance combine elements of European folk music -- particularly music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance -- with ambient pop and worldbeat flourishes. Their songs are of lost beauty, regret and sorrow, inspiration and nobility, and of the everlasting human goal of attaining a meaningful existence. Over the course of their career, Dead Can Dance have featured a multitude of members, but two musicians have remained at the core of the band -- guitarist Brendan Perry and vocalist Lisa Gerrard....
