Product Description


Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry actually manage to out-shimmer the Cocteau Twins on this 1987 release, which finds their beautiful minimalism adorned with increasingly developed compositional genius. The cascading melodies that grace "Summoning of the Muse" and "Persephone" are tailor-made for that next Christmas or Winter Solstice celebration, while more conventional (albeit somewhat somber) pop tracks like "Xavier" and "Anywhere Out of the World" keep the going from getting too arcane. All in all, more fun than a barrel of goths. --Billy Grenier

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting DCD album April 12 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Any DCD fan will want this album. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece! March 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been reading some of the comments about this album. Most of them are purely based on personal feelings and preferences. So is mine, I believe. However, at some point, I think a work of art should no longer submit to personal opinions, rather it should enter the constellation of everlasting monuments to mankind's ability to create Beauty.
In fact, no matter what the opinions are, this is a monument, "Within ..." is a landmark in music creation. And only if the name of the band wasn't so ... dark, perhaps more visibility would be available to both Perry and Gerrard.
The evolution of the compositions in this record are the perfect settlement to this collection of art; each and every title is placed exactly where it should, and no superfluous sound is recorded. You will find it very difficult to point out any kind of mistakes in this record, appart from wether you like it or not.
And of course, as a band, DCD works out just close to perfection. The sublime Perry's lyrics and the supernatural Lisa's voice. It's all in there.
If you ever go to Paris, don't miss a visit to Père Lachaise cemetery. There you will find the tomb displayed on the cover. I was there but only found that afterwards!
An aboslute masterpice.

5.0 out of 5 stars If Heaven had a Dark Edge to it,MILK Sept. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is the sound of Gothic Dream Pop,Yeah this is mostly World Music but it does have a Gothic Edge to it.It's not Goth rock,it's what the Milkbaby likes to call Symphonic Dream Goth.This album takes you into a dream a dream of a dark haunted Castle,or a cold night in a cemetary.This music if you let it can transport you to another place and time.A place that existed long ago and Time that is no more,this album is very haunting and etheral especially the vocals of the beautiful Gothic sounding Lisa Gerrard.Brendon Perry's vocals remind me of a dark fairy tale/musical.
All of the tracks s are pure gold on here but if I had to pick one it would be"summoning of The Muse" which has Lisa Gerrard's vocals,it sounds like a vampire movie set in the 1700's or any real good horror movie set in a older time period.The Sound is really hard to describe but i'll say this If Heaven were drenched in Black and the angels had a gothic edge to them I believe this is what it would sound like.Think classical but with a dark edge meshed with etheral vocals and think of it as a soundtrack to good Vampire movie.We'll the Milkbaby hopes this review was helpful,Mes has to go now.MILK,PINKY WAVE,BABYLAND FOREVER,YAY,GOODBYE,YAY.

I had all of the dead can dance cd's up to into the labrinth(musical taste's had changed), and ended up trading a bunch of cd's at the local music trader. This album was the only one I kept. I just couldn't get let this one go. All of there albums are great, but this is my personal favorite.

quite simply wonderful in its depth and richness. nothing in the music industry has produced anything since and quite doubt that anyone can even touch their insight and beauty in the way that they have. some say morbid, i say real.

5.0 out of 5 stars DCD at their grandest Feb. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
While Dead Can Dance's music was always more baroque and eclectic than the 'goth' label might suggest, _Within the Realm of a Dying Sun_ is certainly one of the more brooding entries in their back catalogue. Of their early material (which is to say, before the more overtly 'ethnic' stylings of _Into the Labyrinth_ onwards), this is by far the best. Making superb use of Lisa Gerrard's astonishing vocal range, it runs the full gamut from dark-and-langourous to soaring inspiration. As usual, Perry's vocal contributions take a little longer to get used to; 'Xavier' sounds like 80s pop, albeit DCD-style.
It also contains 'Cantara', which for me is Dead Can Dance's best single track, and a reason to buy the album in itself: a glorious, undulating kaleidoscope of sound that just begs you to turn up the hi-fi...

5.0 out of 5 stars What an album! Dec 13 2002
Format:Audio CD
I love everything I've ever heard from DCD. Being a extreme metal head, I believe I discovered this band after seeing that Trey from Morbid Angel had thanked them in the liner notes of some Morbid Angel album. Trey is basically god, so I decided I needed to check out this band. I guess I was expecting to find a metal band, but I was wrong! This is incredibly atmospheric music with amazing vocals from Lisa and Mr. Perry. This is probably my second favorite DCD album, the first being 'The Serpents Egg.'
