It depends on my mood. There are quite a few humdingers in their discography. Today though Im voting for Spleen & Ideal

Having listened to all ten Dead Can Dance albums now, my vote goes to "Anastasis" (2012). Here's the first track from the album.....
 
"Children of the Sun"

I'll cast my vote tomorrow when I've listened to their last three albums, although Within the Realm of a Dying Sun is the best of the seven Dead Can Dance Albums I've listened to so far. Smile

You could start with Within the Realm of a Dying Sun. I listened to the album again today for the first time in a long time and I'd forgotten just how good it is. I'm not going to vote for that album yet though because I still have another seven Dead Can Dance albums to listen to again before I cast my vote.  Smile

Toward the Within.  Not just their best album IMHO but a great live album.

No vote for me. As much as I tried, I could never get into their music.

"Into the Labyrinth" closely followed by "Spiritchaser" and "Aion" for me.  Though I pretty much love all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing the Aion for the first time on Sunday. Smile
 
I was surprised to find Dead Can Dance in the Prog Folk section of ProgArchives. I never thought of Dead Can Dance as a Prog Folk band before. Smile

But as was mentioned the later ones do have a lot of world music influence.

Probably my ranking too.

It's a long time since I've listened to Dead Can Dance's albums too, so I'm currently listening to them all again on YouTube before I cast my vote. Smile

I wasn't so keen on their first self-titled album, but I'll give  Within the Realm of a Dying Sun another listen tomorrow. Smile
