Editorial Reviews

Dark holiday tracks from all your favorites. Spend the holidays in style this year. No more barking dogs or Perry Como for you, uh-uh! While away the frigid hours until the important day with strains of Voltaire's eclectic "Peace in the Holy Land," Black Tape For A Blue Girl's crusade "Chanukkah, Oh Chanukkah," The Crüxshadows' electro-pop take on Lennon/Ono's "Happy Xmas (War is Over)," and Faith and the Muse bringing you the pagan madrigal "A Winter Wassail." All graced by our lovely Dark Angel prepared to brighten many a dark holiday night. Spend the season right, this year. Turn down the lights . . . it's a dark noel!

The Boston Phoenix: Various luminaries of goth cover traditional holiday fare in this compilation. Love Spirals Downward applies a Cocteau Twins-like sound to "Welcome Christmas" with Suzanne Perry's angelic vocals; Faith & the Muse lend their Renaissance rendition of "A Winter Wassail." And led by an eerie group of singers, Black Tape for a Blue Girl's "Chanukkah O Chanukkah" brims with dark gothic overtones. For balance, there are a few more-traditional renditions. This is the perfect Xmas album to play for friends and family to make the holiday just a wee bit weird.

I have the other two holiday CD's from Projekt:
A Dark Noel, Vol 1
A Winter's Song, Vol 2

I like them a lot. They are my December music, and put me into the mood for these dark days of the year. I highly recommend them for something different to "balance" out the vibe for the season.

It appears that this CD is mostly tracks from those other two CDs. There appear to be 4 songs on this CD that are not on the other two:

2. Voltaire (featuring Unto Ashes) Peace in the Holy Land - Voltaire
4. Autumn s Grey Solace Through the Snowy Trees - Autumn's Grey Solace
8. Audra Let the Reindeer Live on My Roof - Audra
9. Unto Ashes For I Am Winter Born - Unto Ashes

I might end up buying this to get those 4 tracks. But I thought I would try to clear this up for other people. It took me a while to compare the tracks, because some of them looked familiar.

Leave it to Projekt Records to make something as harmless like Christmas carols and turn it into something dark and forboding. A DARK NOEL is the label's most recent Christmas album. This is a nice antidote to all the glut of Xmas cds that are churned out by the dozen. I am not really familiar with some of the songs but that makes no difference to me. The overall theme is that of winter solstice or Christmas. I like that I am not familiar with some of the songs. It does get tiring hearing the same song on every Christmas album I listen to, especially John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War is Over)", good song but hearing people cover it on every single Xmas cd I have listened to does get tiring. Every artist offers something different to the song they re-interpret for the album. While I enjoyed every single song on the album, I am especially fond of Love Spirals Downards' version of "Welcome Christmas" from HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, El Duende's "Gaudete, Gaudete", and Faith and the Muse's "A Winter Wassail". A DARK NOEL is easily my favorite Christmas album of this year.

Projekt put together a wonderful compilation of covers of various christmas music. A refreshing alternative to the moldy oldies christmas music they pollute the airwaves with every year. I would recommend getting all 3 disc in the series as well as the singles.
