Dead Can Dance come from a land Down Under, Traveling in a fried-out Kombi, On a hippie trail, head full of zombie. Smile
 
Correction:- Only one half of Dead Can Dance - Lisa Gerrard - comes from a land Down Under. Wink

Brendan is a Londoner.
Dying Sun for me. I can't stand their ethno-world albums.

Thanks for the info. I'd always assumed Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard were both from Australia originally as they're listed as an Aussie band on ProgArchives. I just discovered today that Brendan is the same age as me, so that's two things I learned about Dead Can Dance already today, and it's not even midday yet.  Smile

I suppose it depends if you determine a band's nationality by one or more of its members or by where they live and are active.

Within the Realm of a Dying Sun for me though I like everything I've heard.

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

I don't remember when was the last time i listened to an album from DCD, that long ago. I wouldn't even know where to (re)start if i wanted to listen to them again.

Dying Sun.....then Spleen and Ideal ,,,then Aion....but they are all decent imho.
But as was mentioned the later ones do have a lot of world music influence.

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

Aion hands down favourite for me, but I do love them all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Into the labyrinth.

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"

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