Performance:   Sonics:
Aion was the 5th album released from the creative prowess of Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard. This album is another deep spiritual exploration into a wonderful fusion of music, tones and emotions. With a nice mix of instrumental and vocalized songs this album takes you on quite a journey. This is the type of album that really defies categorization....some much suggest folk, ambient, world, jazz, psych AOR etc......i put this one under art pop somewhere but really Dead Can Dance are their own classification.
This SACD sounds amazing and offers a huge and deep soundscape to get lost within. Lisa Gerrard's vocals are haunting yet never overpower the instrumentation which enriches the sound throughout. The percussion is wide too and at times my music room is just a huge wall of sound. The folks at Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs did a fantastic job in translating this to SACD format and offer us a truly enriched album to enjoy. Lots of detail here to absorb with a high degree of speaker separation.
Highly recommended album and even better if you can snag it on SACD !
