Limited double audiophile vinyl LP edition of this 1993 album, an ethereal gem of ethnic fusion. Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI (America's best record plant).
Their goth-sounding name and dour visual image aside, the prolific duo of Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard produce wildly eclectic but utterly unique music. Their painstakingly crafted albums encompass numerous arcane genres, from European classical music to ancient Celtic and Middle Eastern folk styles, often employing authentic antique instruments to achieve their ambitious, emotive soundscapes. The 1993 effort Into the Labyrinth found Dead Can Dance mixing their medieval leanings with more exotic Eastern influences on "Saldek" and "Yulunga," while exploring Celtic balladry on the traditional "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" and theatrical songcraft in their interpretation of Bertolt Brecht's "How Fortunate Is the Man with None." --Scott Schinder --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This album is great. It is dark and haunting (I always think of a tomb when I listen to it). Tribal, celtic, hypnotic, erotic, eclectic, multi-layered, deep, beautiful. Read morePublished on Nov. 4 2002 by LionGoRoar
