I hope that TG puts the orchestra songs on the next DVD as an extra or something.
Can they do that please... :roll:

The quality of the dvd recording that I have sucks...BIG TIME!
And Strange Machines with orchestra is really brilliant.

their cover's better than the orginal song


I feel the same way. And that's saying a lot, because I have been an avid Slowdive fan since Just for a Day came out, oh so long ago :)

I see some people mentioning "Travel". Am I the only one that thinks this version is terrible?

I haven't heard this whole album, but I have heard most of the B-sides and I gotta say Adrenaline does it for me. Love it, even though it sounds so cheap in the beginning, haha! I also adore When The Sun Hits and never quite really understood why people think In Power We ENtrust The Love Advocated is so good...

@ Ante. I can't speak for other people. And these are just my opinions. But when the Dead Can Dance released In Power... back in '84, I immediately loved that song. It was a beautiful somber song. What else can be said about Dead Can Dance? Every song they have ever written and performed is a masterpiece. And I believe every future release will become my favorites.

As for The Gathering covering that song, I was awe struck when I heard Anneke singing that song. Her voice commanded attention and the way she sang made me FEEL the song. When the verse This night is filled with the cries of dispossessed children in search of paradise. A sign of unresolved ambition drives the pin wheel on and on. plays, I get goose bumps. The original song didn't make me feel this way. The only group that I know that can play with people's emotions with their lyrics and music is The Gathering. And they did just that on this song to me. I guess that is why I think this song is good...it hits me emotionally.

So hard to choose from all the songs.. i love them all!
But I think "when the sun hits" and " in power we entrust the love advocated" are the greatest ones :green:

strange machines is a classic not just from TG but from all metal music, that's awesome in itself and it's enough for to vote for this song in any poll, but unfortunately version with orchestra is not so good.... it could have been much better but it didn't get all the potential.... same thing with 'leaves'

however, although I like in power we..... my choice was for adrenaline, it's an excelent b side

I love this "when the sun hits" cover.
So I voted for that."In power we entrust the love advocated" is my number two. But there's a lot I like on this cd. I'd say it belongs to the top 5 of my favourite cd's in general.
