THIS FUCKING NEEDS TO BE A SPUTNIK ALBUM, WHY IS IT NOT?

5.0 classicLambda | May 1st 15

Within the Realm of a Dying Sun was not a grower album-- it hit me immediately. During the course of the first track I could tell this record was something special. On an atmospheric level, it is one of the most effective albums I have ever heard. Imagine dark, cavernous, coiling cathedrals, and massive spires rising into a black sky. Both vocalists, Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard, are phenomenal. The record flows flawlessly, and it is exactly the right length. The production is fantastic. Even the cover art is perfect. All in all, Within the Realm of a Dying Sun is one of the best albums ever recorded.
