This was the first real goth cd I actually bought. I'd heard of a few of the bands on it from hanging around the Chamber and the Vault in Atlanta, but I'd never actually gone out and bought a CD like this one. I'm very glad I did! Previously, I had been into Type O Negative, KMFDM, Wumpscut, and the like, however this was an excellent choice to showcase more of the "pure" goth sound, instead of the industrial/metal point of view that I had previously enjoyed.
This CD had me at hello, with the poppy intro of "Eccentricity" by Magenta. I was certainly not expecting to hear something that sounded like it had crawled out of the 80's, however after 5 seconds I knew EXACTLY what gothic synthpop was. This song is truly a diamond in the rough. The next song, by "Slave" by Trance To The Sun is kind of whiny and freeform. Think of it as being the musical equivalent of one of those modern paintings...at least it makes sense to someone, right! After that comes "Vision in Black" by Advent Sleep. I like it when goth has organs in it, just because I like the sound of them, and if you're into the "organ" thing then you won't be disappointed here. Great song. Machine In The Garden offer up a great tune to keep the ball a rollin', and some really Ethereal stuff comes next (I'm not a big fan, but I really enjoy the selections here.) The next highlight here is Gossamer's "Run". Dark and dancable all in one. Definitely made for the clubs, and with amazing lyrics to boot. Jennifer Hope checks in somewhere in this part of the first disc too, her song, "The Sky Is Blushing" is amazing.

wanting to listen to something different from my usual extreme metal tastes, i tried this album out of pure curiosity. a double album for 11$ so there's nothing much to lose here. with that in mind, i pushed the play button. a couple of hours later came the verdict (please check the rating). I barely know about no more than 2 bands out of the 32 featured on this compilation but at least 20 of them can make some really awesome music; a quite high "quality material" ratio for a compilation. this is goth, alright, but it might be closer to a blend of dark pop and techno then to the usual "Gothic", guitar driven flavor of Type o negative, paradise lost and the like but still this is an essentially dark music playing here and it's sure to satisfy any gloomy-minded sicko like me.

CD: The Unquiet Grave Vol. I
Band: Various Artists
Reviewed By: Mike Ventarola
The Unquiet Grave compilation released by Cleopatra Records remains one of the most important body of works to own in for fans of the gothic,darkwave and ethereal genres. This decently priced 2 CD set was painstakingly brought together with the utmost care for all details.
The Hugh Gilmour graphics which grace the cover as well as the separate slip box that encases the set, is a gorgeous work of art. It has subtle lavender hues covering a photo negative-like image to provide a feeling of ghostly mystery.
As for the discs themselves, 32 different bands are featured here that are stellar performers in their own right.
The majority of these bands are at the forefront of the dark music underground and continue to work at their craft to provide fans great sounds to accompany our lives.
Despite the fact that none of these bands receive any royalties for this disc, it remains a showcase of their talent to hopefully garner more attention from industry insiders as well as generate more public attention. These are the creators of our dark musical future.
Usually this reviewer compiles a track by track listing and analysis to broaden the expanse of the song itself and the artist's work. Due to space constraints and the amount of songs that are included in this disc, this is not entirely possible.
Anyone who is an avid consumer of dark music will recognize at least a dozen or so of the bands listed. The CD insert also provides web site information for the bands to further review their works individually.
Over the last few months, a lot of gripes were played out on the net regarding the sorry state of affairs regarding many compilations on the market.

One of the best dark music samplers of the year. The low price almost seems like a mistake, but it's a terrific deal. This comp will probably jump-start three or four of the bands featured. All in a slipcase that's the same size as a regular CD (I LOVE convenient packaging!)
Instead of using up all the good songs halfway through disc 1, they're well spaced. Magenta's "Eccentricity" opens the comp with a gothed-out ABBA sound. Trance to The Sun follows up with "Slave," which sounds like Lycia doing heavy metal. Advent Sleep approaches "overgoth" with "Vision in Black." Nearly all the songs are catchy enough that you can remember them a week later. Other standouts include Black Atmosphere's semi-goofy "Love Lies Bleeding (Part Two)."
It gets ethereal with Stone 588's "Mundus Vult Decipi," Ctrl's head-scratcher "Lioc," and Jennifer Hope's gentle "The Sky is Blushing." (She's not a great singer yet, but there's a sweet innocence to her sound.) Gossamer's Depeche Mode-ish "Run (Wayne Hussey Mix)" is a deathpop gem. Brave move not to open the album with this track. Every Wiccan ceremony should start with the harpsichord beauty of Autumn Tears' "This, My Melancholic Masquerade." Second Skin's rocker "Sweet Nothing" sounds like Fields of The Nephilim. The Last Dance's "Do You Believe in Angels" is like Gossamer's "Run," but about 5% cheesier. The Unquiet Void's "Breathing Liquid Breath" is watery and cavernous; it would have fit perfectly on Lycia's "Ionia."
Rhea's Obsession starts disc 2 with the metal guitar ballad "When I Was in My Prime." Spiritual Bats' "Crucifixion" is officially "overgoth.
