A double CD condensed compilation of highlights chosen by Brendan Perry from the out of print limited edition box set released by 4AD in 2001. It spans the band's entire career (eight critically acclaimed and highly individual albums over 17 years with 4AD). Since the band's split in 1998, both Lisa Gerrard and Brendan have continued making music. "...a breathtaking fusion of ancient and modern sounds, the results of which often transcend the stylistic entrapments of a specific culture for something larger" - CMJ.

Not really true, but eventually I tryed the music clips for DCD: Wake on Amazon and was captured by what I heard so I gave it a shot.
Now I'm a new fan of DCD, thanks to this Wake release of Best of tracks. I still like Cocteau Twins but I most says DCD is more varied in musical scope and styles, crossing several different languages and cultures. I'm impressed with Gerrard's ability to sing in different languages. This a perfect for me because I'm the type of person that like learning about cultures and languages, and DCD is great for when I'm doing artwork, illustrating multicultural characters in exotic worlds.
DCD: Wake is a great introductory compilation for potentional new fans. My favourite songs are Carnival of Light, Windfall, Host of Seraphim, Severance, Rakim and The Spider's Stratagem, to name a few. I already started purchasing DCD's past album releases and the Remasters will be available soon.
DCD will take your mind and soul to other worlds, past, present and future.
They are just so completely different from anything that's being put out today. I personally don't think there's a better vocalist out there today than Lisa Gerrard, and Lisa and Brendan's work together is genius.
