Culture Break: Dead Can Dance: The Lotus Eaters

I was introduced to Dead Can Dance years ago by a friend whose taste in music was as eclectic as my own, although he was more plugged in to the club scene than I was. I think this one's just about my favorite DCD number. From fairly late, and if you're trying to make out the words, give up -- there aren't any. Lisa Gerrard got into just vocalizing, without any actual lyrics.

I ran into this one on Wake, their "best of" album. And of course, I reviewed it.
