Boomkat Product Review:
This retrospective collection from the Dead Can Dance founder culls material spanning her entire career, taking in music from the aforementioned band, her solo recording career and her soundtrack work on films like Gladiator, Ali and Whale Rider. It’s remarkable to hear these different projects from the various phases of Gerrard’s twenty-two year recording career all in the same place; there’s such a fascinating progression that charts her music becoming increasingly expansive and ambitious while retaining the same fundamental approaches to composition and production. For instance, listening to the baroque chamber ambience of ‘The Promised Womb’ (from Dead Can Dance’s Aion album) it’s not hard to make a link to pieces like ‘Elysium’ and ‘Sacrifice’ from her Grammy and Oscar nominated (and for that matter, Golden Globe winning) Gladiator score. For those who haven’t yet dipped into Gerrard’s ethereal soundworld, this package makes for an ideal point of entry.
