Product Description

Amazon.com

When it comes to popular music, a proven formula is a safer bet than chancing something new. Apparently, such is the wisdom behind Conjure One, the new project spearheaded by Delerium and Front Line Assembly architect Rhys Fulber. As he did with Delerium, Fulber pairs guest vocalists of the mostly ethereal variety with gauzy ambient-tribal pop full of Eastern shadings and just enough chanting to maintain the spooky quotient. And when Fulber nails a vibe--as he does twice with singer Poe on the dreamy, goose-fleshy "Center of the Sun" and the downright chilling "Make a Wish," and with Tea Party belter Jeff Martin on the widescreen "Premonition"--he nails it, creating a haunted landscape best described as New Age-worldbeat. There are some clunkers here, too. Sinead O'Connor is thwarted by the leaden clichés littering "Tears from the Moon," and Israeli vocalist Chemda shamelessly borrows from the late, great Ofra Haza to negligible effect. But anyone who dug the Delerium project--or kindred spirits such as Dead Can Dance--will declare Conjure One a success. --Kim Hughes

Customer Reviews

The song "Manic Star" was nice, as well--a very catchy tune!
Furiae
If there were one track on this album that really stands out for me it would have to be "Tears From the Moon".

Conjure One's debut release is on my list of best CDs released this year.

Have you ever found a cd that entralled and ensnared you instantly? Like you had been asleep for days, weeks or years even but the Music woke you from your slumber? You felt AWAKE and ALIVE as never before and were FIXATED and became ONE with the Music? And you experienced such profound deja vu, that you shivered and you KNEW the SECOND the music began THIS ONE would root itself into your heart afixing itself permanently because it was a PART OF YOUR HEART that you didn't know was missing?
CONJURE ONE is ONE of a limited few that has succeeded in doing this to me personally and EVEN MORE! The dramatic, dreamy, haunting, passionate, emotional, gripping, intense fusion of pop & world Music, Vocals AND Lyrics all FIT, COMPLEMENT and BELONG together perfectly and MAKE SENSE.
If someone asked, "What one cd is most representative of you?" At this time in my life, I would have to pick this one. Each song is a part of me! It's difficult to admit something so personal. Yet I feel like sharing this because it completely baffles me that this can be true!
*****************************************************************
Here are some lyric excerpts and/or notes I love and I believe won't give too much away but give you a taste of the bittersweet mystery:
1 *Damascus*--a brief, opening instrumental with, in my opinion, a religious connotation from Acts 9:1-9. Take it any way you want it.

2 *Center of the Sun*--with Poe. This song, for me, is the Heart of the cd, definitely my favorite track. "When I close my eyes, I am at the center of the sun. And I can not be hurt by anything this wicked world has done...You say the most beautiful things, just like my violins...

I jumped the Delerium bandwagon when 'Silence' was a hit and I loved "Canto Alla Vita" on Josh Groban's debut album, which was produced and arrange by Rhys Fulber. I just loved this style of music that could fuse romance with electronic musical stylings. While it falls short of excellent, it did live up to my expectations.

What makes this album different (perhaps even better) for me, however, is one woman: Poe. She contributes two songs on that are both very solid tracks. Her lyrics, as usual, are tight, eloquent, and subtle. She's proven again that she is a fantastic lyricist, and her vocals are velvety and rhythmic. It really is no wonder her fans call her the 'mistress of groove.' Her song "Center of the Sun" really is the highlight of this album. She never oversings and her voice complements both her songs very well.

Another standout song was "Sleep." It was very ambient and created a very strong mood. The song "Manic Star" was nice, as well--a very catchy tune! Both these songs, along with Poe's, were well produced and boast strong melodies (they key, I've found, with a good Rhys Fulber song).

Chemda's vocals were actually very good. Her Israeli-style vocalizations on "Redemption" were enjoyable. I don't know what basis the official reviewer has of saying her singing is a rip-off of the late Ofra Haza (who was a GREAT singer, don't get me wrong). When two people both hail from similar regions (in this case, the Middle East) you're bound to hear similarities somewhere along the line. Chemda's vocals were intense, soulful, and compatible with Rhys' style, not to mention lend an exotic feel to the album.

The song I am a little disappointed with is Sinead's "Tears from the Moon." In this case I do agree with the official review.

Just like Balligomingo, Conjure One has been a long time in the makings. But now that it's available to the public I couldn't be more happy for its stunning outcome and for the certainty of Rhys Fulber's breakthrough success. I miss his contributions to Front Line Assembly and especially to Delerium but, because of creative differences, Rhys Fulber decided to depart his works with Bill Leeb after the release of Karma as to further pursue his first solo project, Conjure One, which turned out just as good as any Delerium album. I'm sure that he's gotta hate all these comparisons to his former group though, so let me state that there are some major differences which evidently separate the two, such as his favor for orchestrated strings as opposed to Gregorian-type chantings. There's also a more definite world sound here, mainly due to the maginificent vocals of Chemba (whom sings with sweeping intensity on "Redemption") and Marie-Claire D'Ubaldo, whom sings on one of my favorite tracks, "Manic Star", which deals with the suffocating acknowledgment of how death will someday append on us all and how (to one extent or another) we're all afraid of it. She also sings on a seductive tune called "Sleep", which also happens to be one of my personal favorites. The most well-known artist, however, would have to be the phenomenal Poe, which gives Conjure One its attitude, I think, on songs like "Make A Wish" and "Center Of The Sun". Sinead O'Connor also guest sings on "Tears From The Moon", which is probably the most radio-friendly. And though I didn't really care for any of the instrumentals upon first listening, I now find "Years" and "Pandora" to be two of the most stunning tracks on here. The only song I still can't seem to take a liking to is "Premonition (Reprise)".Read more ›
