Out of print in the U.S.! Import pressing of this classic 1987 album from one of the 4AD label's most popular and influential bands. At the core of Dead Can Dance is guitarist Brendan Perry and vocalist Lisa Gerard, who created a body of work that remains invigorating and uniquely their own. Eight tracks. 4AD.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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... Read morePublished on Feb. 17 2003 by N. Clarke
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... Read morePublished on Dec 13 2002 by King Craig
This album has to be THE most dramatic, romantic, gothic(not goth) piece of work i have ever heard. It's so beautifully over-the-top and strong in composition. Read morePublished on June 25 2002 by Philippe Landry
