Выпуск № Dead Can Dance – The Serpent's Egg(Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue).
With songs like The Host of Seraphim, Mother Tongue and Severance, this album can be a cathartic experience. This is a must have for the collector and fan alike. The production of the album is through the roof and the vinyl is very quiet and mastered perfectly.
· Dead Can Dance are certainly one of 'those' bands whose output is pretty much unique and therefore all the more precious. However this makes criticising albums a little difficult! Following on from 'Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun' their fourth album starts in the same mood as the last one managed to sustain throughout.
Perry and Gerrard continued to experiment and improve with The Serpent's Egg, as much a leap forward as Spleen and Ideal was some years previously. As with that album, The Serpent's Egg was heralded by an astounding first track, "The Host of Seraphim." Its use in films some years later was no surprise in the slightest -- one can imagine the potential range of epic images the song could call up.
Dead Can Dance are sometimes an infuriating band, if only because it is so difficult to classify them. I had been hooked on this release for many years, in particularly, Host of the Seraphim, had an emotional hook on me for more than a decade. The SACD though, adds another dimension/5().
