Album Review

Brendan Perry's solo debut, Eye of the Hunter, builds on his reputation as Dead Can Dance's meditative, baritone singer/songwriter. Perry's rich vocals and the songs' orchestral-folk arrangements and somber titles give the album an intriguing Gothic/easy listening feel, similar to Scott Walker's darkest Baroque pop. Along with seven original tracks like "Medusa," "Saturday's Child," and "Archangel," Eye of the Hunter also includes a thoughtful cover of Tim Buckley's "I Must Have Been Blind." Though the stately pace of the songs becomes monotonous at times, Perry's first solo effort is a mature work worthy of his reputation.

Well worth a visit

There is something about Brendan Perry's work (with Dead Can Dance and now as a solo artist) that just grabs your soul. The highlights are Saturday's Child, Voyage of Bran, and, of course, The Captive Heart. This effort would have been worthy of five stars had Perry provided some variety in the tone of the remaining songs. Don't let that stop you! The three songs I mentioned are worth the price of admission!
