Dead Can Dance always produced music that was timeless. It therefore strikes as an evidence that they should come back after a 16 years hiatus. Time has mended their differences, and they now appear as a mature musical couple only too happy to forget the bad memories to show that they have much pleasure creating beautiful music together.

The opening track, "Children Of The Sun", sung by Brendan Perry, introduces the general feel of the album. It is deliciously atmospheric. It is Dead Can Dance as a well-aged wine. Less extravagant than in the past but every bit as elaborate, it delivers a very satisfying feeling of plenitude. The tone of the album is given. Follows the slow and very easy to like "Anabasis" sung by Lisa Gerrard, and "Anastasis" slowly unfolds. It is no longer groundbreaking as their first albums were, more a voyage where they take us by the hand for a luxuriant visit into their sophisticated world.

Never production on a Dead Can Dance opus sounded so polished. Not a moment feels cheap or unchallenging to the ear. Both singers have exceptional voices that suit their style perfectly, and they are at their best here. Lisa Gerrard leads four songs (including one, the opulent "The Return Of The She-King" where her partner joins in at the end), as does Brendan Perry. Eight songs may seem on paper like too simple an effort after 16 years, but all songs are in the five to seven minutes range, and most importantly, there is a sense of unity, an "album feel", that is very powerful in this release. Where the old albums were always original, individual songs didn't always flow as strongly into a sense of unity proper to a definite album.

It's been 16 years since the duo's last proper studio album. Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry's influence on music is hard to measure, but Dead Can Dance's treatment of world music can be felt far and wide. I'll admit, I was skeptical about the studio reunion ANASTASIS: after 16 years, how could the group possibly maintain their striking sound? Dead Can Dance's style is easily aped, and I feared of an album that featured the band simply going through the motions. I was wrong. ANASTASIS is a fantastic return to form for the duo.

Gerrard and Perry's vocal deliveries are strikingly different, and I feel the differences have grown wider only with timer. Brendan Perry's croon sounds now like an old worn catcher's mitt -- it's a comfortable fit, and while it might have some rough edges, it feels lived-in and experienced. Lisa Gerrard's voice, on the other hand, has a more traditionally elegaic quality to it; her singing often sounds transcendent. The two vocalists duet only once on this album: the penultimate track "Return of the She-King," which serves as one of the best songs on the album.

The opening "Children of the Sun" serves as a highlight track on the record. This atmospheric, Perry-sun track isn't just a good song for the band's album: it's a good song for the band's career. It also points out what may be a defining characteristic for this record: these songs aren't as textured or layered as some of the band's earlier work. This change, however, sees no real diminishing returns in terms of quality -- instead, it feels like the band is comfortable with their creations. They have nothing to prove. The songs of ANASTASIS sound much less like a band trying to imitate world music and more like a group profoundly inspired by traditional music from around the world.

After about my third listen to this album, I'm finding myself unable to stop.
It is amazing, in fact I would say better than most of their albums as it meets the mark in many aspects, and exceeds in others.

Firstly all of the songs are really well done, and have all the elegant compositional hooks and interesting rhythms you would expect from a Dead Can Dance album, from lush strings to epic horn phrases that seem to lift you as you hear Brandon Perry croon.

My favorite songs (so far) are the "Children of the Sun," an incredible Perry song, "Agape," a hypnotic middle-eastern dance song sung by Lisa Gerrard, and "Amnesia," which I think reminds me of the Brandon Perry of the pre-"Into the Labyrinth," years. Those are just my favorites. The rest of the album is gorgeous.

This album reminds me in many ways of their 1985 released Spleen and Ideal album, and I would even dare say it's better as the sound quality of Anastasis is very good. And yet still the elements that I enjoyed from their later albums in the 90's are apparent such as the complex primal rhythms. "Kiko," in that manner is quite a trip.

All in all an Excellent album! I'm happy they released it.

Anastasis feels more polished and speaks less in the ancient tone and voice Dead Can Dance has offered before. I find many of the tracks appealing as movements in a really epic movie score - especially the Brendon Perry vocals. This effort is successful in rendering a sumptuous variety of tonality and rhythm leaving the listener wanting more. I heard some of the first samples from this CD on "A Darker Shade of Pagan" podcast, and the avid listener should go there for premonitions of like music in the future.
