"Although some of these covers tend towards the forgettable, this is a pleasant enough album. The delightful exceptions include the magnificent Ulysses by Surface 10 - a very impressive version with its solemn world-weary male voice and beautiful arrangement, the aggressive/erotic punk Cantara by Evil Mothers and the spooky, whispered Carnival Is Over by Leather Strip. And why is The Unbiquitous Mr Lovegrove covered twice? Far better candidates for memorable cover versions would have been Persephone (The Gathering Of Flowers) or The Host Of Seraphim. I can understand that DCD fanatics won't appreciate this album, but the above three tracks make it worthwhile."

"i think i won't be able to be smart enough with my english to correctly writing here how far this "album" is from the original DcD spirit, having tried to mix (?) it through a piece of software i presume and put into these immortal songs some hip hop or dance or crust like that."
It's not that bad

"Man, the last two reviews would make you think that it was entirely noise. It's actually got some really good songs on here. Granted some of the songs could have been left off an no one would have noticed, a couple of songs sound just like Dead Can Dance, but there are a few that are gold. Leaether Strip's cover of The Carnival is Over was a perfect interpretation of DCD's style."
Not bad for DCD fans

"This isn't that bad of a CD. The one reviewer below got it right... this isn't the greatest by no means, but if you're a DCD fan you'll enjoy some of the songs on this."
Worth it to me

"This CD is worth it for the Leaetherstrip version of the "Carnival is Over". The whole thing is very mellow and atmospheric. It's not as good as DCD, but if you recognize and like these bands, you'll probably like this CD."
