Dead Can Dance's debut self-titled album has elements of a partnership still finding voice, and the great promise of things to come. The primary refreshing element here was that the group was not afraid to experiment, and unlike many post-punk or natal-gothic bands, was not afraid of polished vocals informed by both polyphony and plainchant. In addition the band's use of unfamiliar instruments, particularly with percussion, is also a welcome departure from the narrow constraints of independent and DIY music of the early 80s.
