CD review: OTHERS Heart of Darkness (Tales of Dracula)

OTHERS
Heart of Darkness (Tales of Dracula)
Independent
Heart of Darkness (Tales of Dracula) was captivating. I found myself listening to the lyrics and being drawn into the story. The hypnotic vocals accompanied by the looming ambience of the background instrumentals gives this collection a perfect coupling - subject and storyteller. The music is narrative. I found myself listening to the lyrics and being drawn into her story. The lyrics are narrative and very well written. The music, balancing her strong vocals, was exemplary. When listening to just the music without her vocals, I am all the more entranced. A beautiful elixir of sound, vocals and lyrics; The alchemy is pure silver! -Teresa Clayton
