Into the Labyrinth is the sixth studio album by Australian band Dead Can Dance, released on 13 September 1993, by 4AD. It marked a strong shift from their previous albums, putting ethnic music influences at the forefront, as would be the case in the later albums. It was their first album completed on their own without the aid of guest musicians, and their first album to have a major-label release in the US, thanks to a distribution deal that 4AD had with Warner Bros. It featured the single. Into The Labyrinth - Dead Can Dance. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей.

DCD has further widened its palate to include more tribal and spiritual pieces see Saldek and Toward the Within&q read more. Wordless as always but never without emotional heft, the song slowly slides into a slow but heavy percussion piece that sounds a bit like Bird from A Passage in Time, but with greater impact and memorability. As the album slowly unwinds over an hour's length, the two again create a series of often astounding numbers that sound like they should be millennia old, mixing and matching styles to create new fusions.

The idea of mixing Medieval and world music with a focus on gloomy imagery is undeniably interesting, and by no means do Dead Can Dance execute this idea poorly. Yet, with the obvious exception of the masterful vocal performances especially in regards to Gerrards beautiful a cappella and haunting glossolalia, there is nothing truly outstanding here. The bleak tone is hard-hitting at first but is dragged-out too long, and although there are certainly some unique instruments at hand, the duos musicianship ranges from good to

Just compared to first edition record. New one is like taken from CD. Dynamic is really compacted. The spectrum seems tighten. First edition keeps the old school of power we are looking back in records.
Crazy Good version of this timeless piece of work! Really excellent sonics and quiet pressing. Highly recommended
Funny duck
I'm getting bad surface noise on Spirit on two copies so far. Anyone else getting this? It comes in at the end of Bird and goes throughout Spirit.
I have the same problem in two spots on ''The Spider's Stratagem''. Besides of that - great edition...
To all comments about "great remastering" :Original mastering was done by Miles ( does it ring any bells ? ) and was / is magnificent !Mastering ( and not to forget recording / artist's work ) was / is what makes this so highly rated, am I wright ?Yes, you can put another cover , for whatever reason/s, but to question original masterinjg ?Re-mastering, in this case at least, means safeguarding original mastering and is not about "re-mastering" ( likewith The Beatles, making new Beatles re-masters "punchier" and more "up to date "??? ).Bizarre, but it IS happening !
Just get it while it still there, price wise this pressing is a steal! Top quality that is very reraly found at this price point.
First - the quality and sound is Amazin and so powerfull- great, great job!2nd - music is from different dimension - timeless.3rd - artwork is really different.
Never liked the original cover art that much anyway... and will confess not a big fan of this cover either. BUT, having to choose between the two - I'd choose this.
My original is still NM so there is no reason to buy this one, i like the artwork but the lack of the 'real' inner sleeves makes it somehow beta, compared to the original releaseAs for the music, it is DCD
great ant
Great sound on this reissue. Really clear and rich, loads of space for the percussion to really crack and the vocals to breathe.
Double you here, didn't even expect this quality from the nowadays-remastering.
ICopyright, yeah, wright !What about plain inner sleeves, then ?
For those talking about the change in album artwork:"Copyright issues meant that, for this reissue, new artwork was originated, a computer-generated pattern of circles (designed and photographed by Vilija Valeisaite) that maintained a symbolic concept with the labyrinth. "We settled on something that worked as a mandala, a meditative image that would help focus the mind, and then enter into the labyrinth, which is a metaphor for the mind," said Perry. "Source: http://4ad.com/forewords/dcd/
Different cover, I suppose has nothing to do with copyright, its just plain cost-effect. Same goes for plain inner sleeves.You add 2 extra songs and - bingo!This is just a nice way to make extra money with no extra costs.IT'S JUST A SHAME !!!
Terrible cover. Looks like a generic Trance 12"...so not in sync with the music contained..
Amazing repress. Sounds great and clear! Astonishing mandala cover and beautiful sleeve. Top class
Really wish it had the original cover. Can't understand the change at all
I can't find any clear information on it, but given that the CD edition was out of print for years (unlike the other albums) and has just been reissued with the same art, it strikes me as a copyright / licensing issue regarding the original cover. The new one isn't a patch on the original, sadly.
Me too. The "hand" was more mysterious than this computer generated circle thing.
Maybe the best sound in my collection. Perfect pressing for one of the best (the best ?) album of Dead Can Dance. The new sleeve is totally different from the black and white hands Picture, but the mandala pattern is hypnotic and fits perfectly to ths music. I will listen to it a thousand times even if I know it by heart.
I can confirm a nice sounding re-issue / nice remaster. but the vinyl is a bit noisy in general and my first disc is really wavy (second too but less). so the vinly quality itself is max mid-range imho.
The sound is heavenly. I mean this is flawless from sound quality to packaging. I only wish the sleeves weren't plain white, I wish they were picture sleeves. But hey the sound quality is superb, top notch.
The sound of this pressing is amazing. The quality ist great! Very good reissue.
The tracklist here is wrong; 'Bird' and 'Spirit' make up side D, which I think works well, as they are technically bonus tracks and not part of the album as such, so it's a lot easier to skip them if you want to. Just don't play side D! Frankly, after the sublime true closer 'How Fortunate The Man With None', I never want to listen to anything else anyway, so this works for me, much as I like the bonus tracks.Anyway, this is a lovely pressing, and sounds great. I must say, I prefer the original, more iconic cover image, and I'm not sure why it's been changed. Copyright issues, perhaps? Anyway, that's a small matter really. The brilliant music here sounds spectacular.
Bird and Spirit are not bonus tracks, they exist on the original album.
Well, that is true, but they were originally featured on the 'A Passage In Time' compilation from a couple of years before this album was released, so they can't have been intended for the album originally. Why they ended up on the vinyl release is unclear...maybe they were put there as in incentive to buy the vinyl edition as vinyl sales were falling at that time? Anyone's guess, really. I guess it's a moot point now anyway!
Regarding tracking order I think you are referring to the CD, as the original CD misses Bird and Spirit (only 11 tracks). If you take a look to the listing of original LP (13 tracks), Bird and Spirit are placed befor How Fortunate :)I don't think Bird and Spirit are bonus tracks.
