Editorial Reviews
Duality is at once sacred and playful. It is both dark and light, organic and refined, masculine and feminine. Dead Can Dance's Lisa Gerrard partners with Pieter Bourke, formerly of Aussie band Eden, to create this compositional dance of partnership that is classical, ancient, and thoroughly modern. Gerrard's voice is multitracked at times, conjuring a cathedral choir and the droning chants of monks. Drums and synth snake from desert to brilliant stormy sky to shaking earth and the bodies that inhabit those spaces. There are lush multiple layers of strings, bagpipe drone, and, quite literally, the laughter of children. The vocals sans "real" words and multicultural instrumentation will be familiar to Dead Can Dance listeners. Yet there is something more exclusive, more womblike about the music of Bourke and Gerrard; rather than two distinct bodies making music, like mother and in utero child sharing blood and breath, they are mutually dependent. --Paige La Grone

[Lisa] Gerrard was no slouch as founding member of Dead Can Dance, but on this CD, her rich alto voice sounds more upfront and confident than ever.... [Her] voice has character to spare, and is a perfect complement to [Pieter] Bourke's instrumental work.... The predominant musical influence among the 10 pieces on the CD is probably a Middle Eastern flavor ... several tracks supply a strong liturgical, Medieval flavor. Whatever the language or musical precedents, this is worldbeat at its best.

Not bad, but no Dead Can Dance, and no Hans Zimmer, April 27, 2002
Reviewer: MANUEL J HERNANDEZ "http://askmanny.com" (Orlando, FL) - See all my reviews
For those of you looking for Dead Can Dance-like music here, or the type of music you loved the Gladiator soundtrack for, you're searching in the wrong place. Lisa Gerrard's voice is as transporting as ever, but the compositions are not as grandieuse. Some of them have an ethnic feel about them and others have choirs in them in a fashion similar to DCD. But overall, the album is a bit of a dissapointment. However, there are a few tracks which might be saved from this: "Tempest" and "Sacrifice" (both of which can also be found in the soundtrack for "The Insider",) "The Human Game" and "The Unfolding." If you want to dig into more Lisa Gerrard, get yourself a copy of "The Mirror Pool." Not your average "ride-to-work" CD, but you will deeply enjoy it.

a dissenting opinion, April 3, 2004
Reviewer: Wyote (wandering around the world) - See all my reviews
Well, unlike most people writing reviews here, I never really cared for Dead Can Dance. I guess I just didn't get it. But I really do like this album. The music is great for relaxing, cooling down after a stressful day in the modern world, taking a break, thinking deeply, reading, or winding down at the end of the day. But it's not shallow or sentimental; it's deep, haunting, and spiritual in the old-fashioned, strong sense of that word. If you enjoy new age music, this is a good CD for you.

Even if you're not a Dead Can Dance fan!

Hauntingly beautiful, soothingly mystical, fulfillingly Eastern sound, January 14, 2006
Reviewer: LittleOracle (I wish I was in Glastonbury) - See all my reviews
I was never a fan of 'Dead can Dance' only because I'd never heard them. But a friend of mine saw that I liked Caroline Lavelle and said: "I think you'll like this album." Let me just say, I've never put this album away and had to replace it twice (once was worn and broken, once a boyfriend stole my copy.) I think I have yet to find someone I know who will listen to it and it doesn't move them somewhat.

This album is incredibly atmospheric. It's one of those beautiful and lovely CDs that you can put on at night in the summer with the windows open and light lots of candles -- actually it's what we did and just had a bottle of wine talking with this in the background thoroughly enjoying the music of Duality.

It is a combination of Eastern, tribal and classical music in my opinion. Specific songs in particular to really revel in would be: Shadow Magnet, Forest Veil, the Human Game, and the Unfolding is very VERY moving if you listen at a louder volume.

I adore this album and have yet to find another like it. For those of you who are Dead Can Dance fans, I don't know what to tell you but I like her solo work. For those out there who are Loreena, Enya or Caroline Lavelle fans, check out Lisa Gerrard and enjoy. This music is good for atmosphere, meditation and something different. Highly recommended.
