Product Description

Product Description

SACD Hybrid Remastered CD of the self titled Dead Can Dance. On the evidence of this, the band's first record, Dead Can Dance can clearly be seen as a "Goth" group in the vein of Bauhaus, et al. The band's sound here is much more clearly based in the "contemporary"--Dead Can Dance uses traditional song structures, the group's instrumentation is almost entirely synthesized, and co-vocalist Lisa Gerrard's voice rarely gets into the truly ethereal, other-worldly realms that it would on later albums. Perhaps the most surprising single song on the album is "East of Eden." Built on a picked (and heavily echoed) guitar line and a rolling drum pattern, it is probably the only track in the DCD catalogue that can be described as relentlessly perky. 10 tracks.

Amazon.ca

This 1984 release set the pace for the band's career, helped define the tone of the 4AD label, and opened the door for a genre that includes Delirium, Deep Forest, and Enigma. While much less dense and textural than more recent DCD, this album begins the group's study of combining global rhythms and instrumentation from various musical eras with contemporary sounds. Here they explore the somewhat Gothic electronic and rock instrumentation of post-punk European pop. Featuring the lush, sonorous vocals of Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard, this is a dark, mysterious, and compelling release. Fans of later works will not be disappointed; newcomers will find this groundbreaker a good place to meet Dead Can Dance. --Andy Stevens --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Audio CD
While this great duo is most known for an upgraded mixture of traditional sounds from all around the world with a bit of electronic,the self-titled debut shows all where from it came...Dead Can dance in the early eighties was an young and ambitious group with an idea of taking new wave Joy Division styled music up to higher level of art and making something fresh out of something popular at the time.
Duo on this album sounds in some moments like on "Spleen and ideal" or "Aion".The sound is mostly dominated by Brandon Perry's noisy guitar,drum machine and expressive bass riffs (a bit in peter Hook's style)."Frontier","Arcane","fatal impact" or "Threshold" define the early band's sound.Brandon's a bit distant vocals are followed by the spooky Lisa Gerrard's soprano.i believe that "Ocean" is one of the most haunting and scary tracks in history.Turn of the light and listen to it loud.i am sure that you will be scared when hte creepy Lisa's vocal will be coming straight to your ear...It is funny because even with the use of few instruments like Bass,drums and bass Dead Can Dance sounds like Dead Can Dance.4 last tracks are taken from the ep "garden of the arcane delights" - they sound much more essential,but i must say that i was not dissapointed by any track from here.
If you like dark new wave music or gothic you must listen to it.there are only few albums that will make you look nervously around searching some monsters or withches while listening it.It's creepy and beautifully haunting music.Highly recomended

A year and a half ago, I bought this CD. This was the first Dead Can Dance album I ever bought. I had to listen to it a couple of times to really get to appreciate it, but I have been absolutely in love with it ever since then. I have every one of DCD's albums, but this one is by far the greatest, in my opinion. I keep experimenting with other songs, other bands, and other genres, but I keep coming back to this CD. I recommend it with all my heart.

Any DCD fan will want this album even if it's, I my opinion, not their best. It's also not everyone's cup of tea since it's hard to pinpoint the genre. A bit new age, folk with electronica that sounds like ancient musical instruments.

before they got self conscious and smarty they were good, it as if they stumbled upon a golden chest in the middle of the woods and opened it and were bathed in light and transformed to an imaginary spot ,deep within theri minds ;which like a voice ,they played too... with all of their conviction and innocense with unschooled un self consciousness...EARNEStNess! the tunes speak too like a collective conscioussness ,like reading HEART OF DARKNESS, THIS IS MUSIC TO TURN THE LIGHT OFF , ALMOST too hypnotic in a inexplicable vigorous good way, unlike TECHNO AMBIENCE, this is like primal genuine and its insistence in getting under ones skin is SHAMANISM perssonified.

I order a lot of Ambient Gendre type music. Ordered 3 CD's on the recommendation of a work mate and fellow Ambient Music lover as,'this is the best music I'e heard in some time'
Normally I have had good recommendations from this personal source and have had great success with ordering through Amazon

C.D.'s arrive;
The CD's are Gothic in nature. Poor quality productions.
Sounded like a bunch of school kids making this music.

Whoops, guess I just don't get it.

Let's try again
$66.00 mistake, any Goth's out there that want some "Dead Can Dance" cheap?
