"Cut from a distinctly Dead Can Dance-shaped cloth, nodding obedience to This Mortal Coil, Garlands-era Cocteaus, and Faith-era Cure, Faith & Disease are essentially backdrops washing into water-color prominence, sweeping epics which build within the lushes darkness..."
- HUH MAGAZINE
Faith & Disease's second release, Fortune His Sleep, is a gorgeous gem that could capture the hearts of neo-goths and classical fanciers as well as world music listeners. The music on the disc sometimes resembles early Dead Can Dance, especially on the tracks "Wallow" and "Hashivenu‚" where Faith's vocalist Dara Rosenwasser uses her voice like an instrument. Fortune His Sleep blends traditional madrigal pieces with moody dreamscape rock that features violin, acoustic percussion, guitar, bass, drums and synthesizer. "Like Lillith" is a sparse but lush acoustic piece where as "Madrigal‚" "Fortune His Sleep" and "Healing Anne" show off the musicianship of all the band members. This album is a must for Projekt label followers. My only caution is to not listen to this album on a dark and gloomy day.

Don't be put off if someone tags Seattle's Faith & Disease "gothic," for that genre is currently as wide open as "ambient," and in fact the intersection between the two often hinges on the presence of a female vocalist. F & D's Dara Rosenwasser is just such a focal point, offering a vocal style that is at turns angelic, tentative and sultry. On the opening eight-minute track "Healing Anne," the guitars, keyboards and percussion provide an atmospheric, neo-classical backdrop for her gentle musings, while a cover of The Cure's "All Cats Are Grey" allows her more operatic side to shine through. Yet it's the old Renaissance chestnut "Ashes Are Burning" that tags the band as being far more traditional than its peers on labels like Projekt, Cleopatra and 4AD - and Rosenwasser does a credible Annie Haslam (one of my favorite vocalists from my '70s daze) vocal turn just to pitch their crossover appeal.
