3 stars Now I am more excited because Dead Can Dance are coming to Mexico City in November, so if everything is ok, I will be attending at last, to witness a show of one of the most original acts I have ever listened. Since they decided to release this series of live EPs I've been dreaming about the song I would like to play, and I believe that is one of the goals of these EPs, to make us dream and fly.

This fifth "Live Happenings" contains five tracks and a total time of 24 minutes. As you know, this is a Live EP, with memorable performances of well-known Dead Can Dance songs. The first one is "Black Sun" with Brendan Perry's tranquilizing voice and the ethnic drums made by percussion and keyboards. This is a track I like a lot. The next one is "Salem's Lot" with Lisa Gerard's beautiful atmospheric voice, dreamy, touching, that can break our deepest fears, enter to our unknown places, that's her charm.

With "Yulunga" we follow the previous mood, relaxing, reflecting and self-consciousness music, atmospheres and nuances produced by her voice, and of course, wonderfully complemented by the instruments in turn. After three minutes the music changes introducing a new rhythm, excellent percussion and the inherent ethnic sound.

"Severance" is a pretty well-known track that most DCD fans love. It has a special charm, a beautiful plate of feelings, colours and textures that Perry's voice know well how to hit the nail, how to share and make them leave a mark in the listener's experience. The last song of the EP is "Hymn for the Fallen" in which she actually sings in English, something strange n DCD's music. Honestly, I have to admit that though this is a beautiful and touching song, it is far from being a favorite of mine.

As usual, a great EP that in my opinion would have been better with a different last track, anyway, I cannot wait to see them live!

Enjoy it!
