This album is also a testament to the technology digital music provides. This album was complete by artist all over the world who never actually sat down together. It was all done through mp3 technology. Some may expect inferior sound quality due to this, but there is no noticable compromise of quality. The sound is of a very well produced album that combines many oddball instruments with your staples.
If you are aware of the story of Gilgamesh, this CD will be something wonderful to listen to, it's a fun interpretation of the tale. I mixes various aspects from the separate cultures who carry on the story, so it's not completely true to either of the tales.
I was encouraged to read through the original texts after listening to this album, it's definitely an easy way to find inspiration to learn something new. Granted, this album isn't something you'll listen to in your car, but it's something you'd have fun listening to as an accompaniment to the story or if you want to learn something.
As I was saying earlier, this album is just a part of the whole. To truly enjoy this work, you should visit the website Garone has made to accompany the album and you should read the Epic itself, it's definitely something interesting to hear and see.
