ALBUM REVIEWS : LISA GERRARD & KLAUS SCHULZE - COME QUIETLY

Reviewing Lisa Gerrard is not the easiest thing for me.
She has one of the most extraordinary voices in musicland and no one can doubt the impact (or importance or beauty) from Dead Can Dance but since the band got split up, I can't help it thinking that her voice is kind of wasted.
Don't get me wrong, the albums aren't that bad but every fan knows deep inside that there is much more to do with such a voice.
Sadly enough, we have to say the same about the colloboration with KLaus Schulze, the man behind Tangerine Dream.
This rather short cd is nothing but beautiful soundscapes while Lisa's voice is just a lame excuse to add some eternal beauty.
Sorry, even if Brendan Perry's latest offerings are reaching the sublime you can only think of one thing : get the two back together!

  1. Just to note Klaus was never 'behind' Tangerine Dream, that was Edgar Froese! Thank you.
