The Lotus Eaters ~ Released April 2003

Wendy Rule's fourth album, I don't actually own a copy of this one, either (<sigh>), because it came out after I stopped being able to buy entertainment media on a regular basis; but, like the others, I would love to add it to my collection.

Wendy Rule herself says of the album:

"My most recent solo album. Itís a wild, oceanic and mythically symbolic journey of the heart ­ much more driven and rhythmic than my previous work, but still very dark and trancy. The instrumentation is quite different to my other albums, and features the work of Elissa Goodrich on vibraphone, which creates a swirling, watery feel. The title refers to a tribe that the ancient Greek hero Odysseus meets on his journeys. They are in a continuous state of blissful and forgetful trance, as they feed on the flower of the lotus."

Samples of the songs on this album are available in MP3 form, here; you don't have to take anyone's word for its quality, you can hear it yourself.

cover image - Deity, by Wendy Rule

Deity ~ Released November 2000

Wendy Rule's third album, this is the one which introduced me to Wendy Rule's music, and won my respect, admiration, and enjoyment.

Wendy Rule herself says of the album:

"This is a more upbeat and joyful album than either Zero or World Between Worlds. Itís very strong and bold, with a big anthemic feel. It was written at a time when I was feeling very empowered by the Goddess and by magic. The recording process was brief and intense, and the result very orchestral and lush. Probably a little more slick and produced than Iíd create now, but I still really like it! Its kind of brave."

Lush is definitely the word for this album; it's one of my favourite pieces to listen to when I want something to (in the words of one of the songs on the album) "wash over me".

Samples of the songs on this album are available in MP3 form, here; you don't have to take my word for its quality, you can hear it yourself.

This album contains the following tracks:

  1. Deity (5.15) [Listen]
  2. Think of the Day (6.15) [Listen]
  3. Open My Senses (6.48) [Listen]
  4. Danse Macabre (5.42) [Listen]
  5. Artemis (3.58) [Listen]
  6. Shine (3.52) [Listen]
  7. Bliss (4.27) [Listen]
  8. Full Moon in Scorpio (5.38) [Listen]
  9. Oh How I Dreamed (5.01) [Listen]
  10. Night Sea Journey (5.34) [Listen]

This album is distributed by Shock Distribution, has a running time of 67.30 minutes (that's well over an hour of music), and is available for purchase through Wendy Rule's website, at http://www.wendyrule.com


cover image - World Between Worlds, by Wendy Rule

World Between Worlds ~ Released September 2000

Wendy Rule's second album, I don't actually own a copy of this one, either (<sigh>), but would love to add it to my collection.

Wendy Rule herself says of the album:

"This is a dark, soft and sad album. The songs reflect a healing and meditative journey ­ a time of gentle hibernation and looking inward. I really love this album for its emotional honesty and spirituality. Certainly I was exploring the Death aspect of the Life/Death/Life cycle — stripped back to bone and singing myself back into being. Away with the Fairies in the World Between Worlds. Working with producer Siiri Metsar was an absolute joy."

Samples of the songs on this album are available in MP3 form, here; you don't have to take my word for its quality, you can hear it yourself.

This album contains the following tracks:

  1. Dissolve (5.15) [Listen]

cover image - Zero, by Wendy Rule

Zero ~ Released April 2000

Wendy Rule's first album, I don't actually own a copy of this one, but would love to add it to my collection.

Wendy Rule herself says of the album:

"I have a tender affection for this, my first album. It was written and recorded at such a pivotal and intense time in my life. My son Reuben was still a baby, and I was just discovering the nature of myself as Witch. Such a Dionysian journey — intense highs and lows. Wild, passionate extremes of joy and despair. I was both Prometheus chained to the rock, and the seductive Empress of Demigod. The Fool and the Wise Woman."

Samples pieces of the songs on this album are available in MP3 form, here; you don't have to take my word for its quality, you can hear it yourself.

This album contains the following tracks:

  1. Continental Isolation (8.10) [Listen]
