Brewing sonorous textures with piano, synthesizer, harpsichord, and pipe organ, Lee Blaske creates a cryptic, haunting atmosphere with Journey of a Vampire. These instrumentals are darkly beautiful and launched with poems spoken by the character of an 18th-century vampire. In a seductive, commanding tone, the vampire implores his paramour to join him in an afterworld that's 'between darkness and light / between ancient and eternal / between real and imagined.' Intensely sensual with a dab of the erotic, the short recitations depict the would-be passage into the world of the living dead and timeless love in such eerie detail that even Anne Rice would swoon: 'You'll feel only / the soft pull of my voice / at first / guiding you through the fog / of this dream / And then your heart / will ignite...' The only slight disappointments on this disc are the two songs that are more uplifting and pretty than portentous and ethereal ('Rebirth' and 'Through the Mirror'), but on the whole this CD is most effective as a ghostly, romantic vampire chronicle. --Karen Karleski<br><br>TRACK LISTING: <br>1.
