Although it can be cheerily accepted by many of DCD fans, the poor vocals is the downside to this recording. previous album was much much better than that one. Sonics are fine and also instrumental part of the work is very well done.

I just listen the music samples of this album on the JPC site and find nothing wrong with the vocals, but Iam not a expert like you.
Few singers born with a stupendous baritone voice like David Sylvian.

P.S.: Maybe the Peter Ulrich timbre voice is not a beautiful one for some tastes. But his voice is better than many rock vocalist like Roger Daltrey and the ridiculous hoarse and monotonic voice of Rod Steward,
now selling zillions of CDs singing romantic Jazz songs.

Listening to the low-res samples on any website is like seeing the thumbnails of the full-res photograph. Peter Ulrich is doing a very good job, the same way like Brendan Perry does in his solo career, but for God's sake why he needs to sing?

Hi. I bought this sacd because I'm a fan of Dead can Dance and because we can count with the fingers of one hand the quantity of artists in this kind of music that have taken this media seriously.

Unfortunately this is not the best example of a good 5.1 mix. Music and fidelity is excellent IMO. Peter's voice is not a talented one but I found him pretty tolerable. All that is ok, but the rears in multichannel side are just ambient, a wasted oportunity to make a real discrete and well balanced 5.1 album. Yes, you are immerse in the music but it seemed like they copy the front speakers information to the rears.

An 8 for the music, fidelity and stereo versions (cd and sacd). But a 7 for the multichannel version.

Dear Barbazul:
Badly mastered Multi-C disks will always exist. This is one of the reasons why I love the Stereo format. Listen to stereo (with very good) speakers and you will not have these problems.

The new career of Rod Stewart is really a mystery, not to mention that nose (Oh Roxanne...
