dark dreamy ethereal rock with beautiful female vocals


A collection of 16 tracks from Faith & Disease, spanning their first 4 albums: dark dreamy ethereal rock with beautiful female vocals (dara rosenwasser)

If you're going to have one album from Faith & Disease it should be this one.

That Goth yet survives is a testament to the emotional resonance it provokes in its listeners, and F&D are skilled purveyors of the form.

Formed in 1992 by Eric Cooley and Dara Rosenwasser as a local anesthetic to Seattle's Grunge scene, F&D are not easy to peg or categorize. Their music tends to adhere closely to what has long been considered the 4AD sound, but the band confounds expectations and advance the genre by incorporating elements of folk, country and blues.

One could say that Rosenwasser's vocals carry the album were it not for the EXCELLENCE of the bands compositions, regardless of their style.

"Jardeau Blue" brings Cocteau Twins' 'The Pink Opaque' to mind, while also upbeat and danceable.

"Wallow" does exactly that, to a deliciously haunting, almost esoteric effect, and is the most melancholic track on the album.

The finest is easily "Crown Of Sorrow" a beautifully produced, instantly rapturous rhapsody of tears.

Hell, if you're going to have one album by Faith & Disease, you might as well have them all.

"Lamentations: A Collection is a new CD that compiles cuts from the Seattle band's four previous releases, concisely sketching Faith & Disease as artists in full command of their sad muse..." -The Willamette Week, 11/4/99
