Previous review is one of the most stupid I've ever read here. Congrats guy, you're an award winner ! Sorry but when you don't like a band or the way it sounds, don't post any idiot review about your (bad) taste. It's nothing but useless.

Here we have one of the excellent MOFI Dead Can Dance remasters. The Serpent's egg is considered by a large amount of listeners as one of the best albums from this band. And this particular SACD duplicates the pleasure you've got listening to it. Everything is clearer (Lisa's voice !), stereo image is almost three dimensional and everything in the mix is now distinguishable. Despite the lack of deep bass (yeah mate, it's not boom boom like you seem to appreciate !), it's a very well done mix to drown into the mysterious harmonies of DCD. Fantastic job by Mofi on a great record based on medieval, classical and world music influences. With Into the Labyrinth and Aion, Dead can Dance at its best !

JAMAIS AUTANT DECU D'UN SACD cd ou autre oeuvre musicale!!!!!!.
Mais le problème ne vient pas de la qualité de son, la definition est bonne etc....Mais l'album en lui même est a chier !!!! 1 chanson de potable sur cet album(9), des chansons qui dures, et qui dures, des minutes entieres avec le meme son de trance, je passe mon tour.

La 9 est pas mal, les 8 précédentes , pas une seul impulse de bass, que du son trancendental style , si t'a pas fumé un Baobab avant, c'est dead (can dance....)

préférer l'album de Bliss (quiet letters), une vrai tuerie, jamais été aussi ravi d'un album que j'achete à l'aveugle, pour 15 euros, vous en avez pour votre argent (la 5-9-10, sont des tueries), mais là, 30 euros aux fraises, je le revends de suite....

en plus c'est con, la surface de lecture est gold etc.... il avait tout pour plaire si ce n'était un son de merde, j'ai largement préféré un autre album de cet artiste, en cd....

NO BASS ANYWAY !!!!!! ONLY TRANSE SOUND, always the same things on the tracks, very boring !!!
