This is getting a reissue on vinyl earlyish in 2017, according to in their latest post about the current vinyl reissues of all their 4AD releases. Original copies in decent condition are pretty expensive, so for anyone looking for one, it may be worth waiting a few months for the nicely priced reissue!

Dead Can Dance's last studio album might also be one of their strongest, most mature, and most melancholy. Like any band towards the end of their peak, the last songs generally have a certain wistful feeling about them... the feeling that great things can't last forever. Although I get that feeling somewhat when listening to this, even more importantly I get the feeling that this amazing body of work Dead Can Dance has created over the years lives on into the future. This is the perfect parting gift to the fans, a sublimely awesome ethnic, ambient, tribal journey through the world with some of their most biting lyrics yet courtesy of Perry. Although this was the last album, it is still a perfect first album for a new DCD listener. This is really one of those albums that demands full attention, from start to finish, no pausing! Let this amazing music play out and over your senses and relish one of the best bands to ever grace our speakers.
