3 stars Listening diary 9th July, 2021: Dead Can Dance - Aion (neoclassical darkwave/medieval folk, 1990)

Probably their most blatantly medieval album, even to the point of covering The Song of the Sibyl, one of my favourite pieces of classical music, but as with many Dead Can Dance records, I'm not sure this has much staying power. There's an absolutely enchanting atmosphere to this, with strong folk threads running through it as well as the usual classical bent, but there aren't any standout tracks or truly memorable parts to songs. But if you're coming for the spiritual and ethereal atmosphere, it definitely delivers on that front.

6.6 (3rd listen)
