Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The novelty was stripmined from ethnobeat pop long ago, and this skin-deep confection is surprising only in its lack of edge and invention. On the plus side, the melodies are textured and lush, the beats entrancing, and a parade of gifted singers--Kristy Thirsk, Jacqui Hunt, and Sarah McLachlan included--bill and coo impressively. Lead single "Euphoria (Firefly)" has spark and spirit, while "Enchanted" and "Duende" are strong vehicles for Thirsk and Camille Henderson respectively. --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding vocals over surrealistic soundscapes January 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! Wow! I can't hear this CD enough!
I started listening to Delerium through the side-door: I'm no fan of Front Line Assembly or much of Leeb and Fulber's other work produced under various names, including Delerium.
Then a friend leant me the awe-inspiring Semantic Spaces. Shortly, I got ahold of Karma. And it's been stuck in my Rio player for six months now, and I've no plans to remove it any time soon.
It's hard to write about something that sounds so beautiful: words don't do it justice. But imagine ethnic beats, electronic sophistication, angelic lamentations, and ethereal landscapes, and you might get an idea of what this album sounds like. If you're at all a fan of Semantic Spaces, or Enigma's early work, you'll definitely enjoy Karma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Euphoric, Dreamlike, Mysterious February 28, 2000
By B-Track
Format:Audio CD
I listened to this CD in a booth at the CD store, and was instantly blown away. The tracks "Enchanted" and "Silence" really got into my soul, with different sounds from world music, an awesome beat, wonderfully blended female voices. "Silence" esp. was haunting, incorporating a beautiful chant/requiem at the beginning. Since I've had the CD, I've listened to it often. It seems I have a new favorite off the CD every week. Right now it is the final track, "Til the End of Time." Extremely haunting and dreamy, I have never heard a female voice so beautiful or so well-mixed since I heard the track "Szerelem" off the English Patient soundtrack -- one of my favorite albums. Pay attention to the beautiful names of the songs themselves -- "Enchanted," "Twilight," "Euphoria" etc. They really say a lot about the mood and ambiance of this amazing album.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first delerium, my favorite delerium August 5, 2002
By michael
Format:Audio CD
This was my first delerium cd, and it served as an excellent introduction to new-era delerium. I like all the other cds of the duo, but this is still my favourite. it is probably the most tribal album of theirs, and it is vocal without being a cheap poppish attempt to make money. It has quite a variatey of styles, ranging from ethereal trance/new age (twilight) to ambient/dance pop (but not forced) songs like euphoria (firefly) and silence. the details are below.
1:enchanted- I LOVE kristy thirsks voice! it is so sexy, when she comes in with her oohs and aahs. this song is tribal, ambient, poppish, and a little ethereal. So angelic.
2:deunde- When I first got this album this was my favorite song. it has a great powerful beat, some sampled chants, and a great vocal job by camille. It almost makes you feel like you are in the aboriginal outback, but it is still pop influenced.
3:twilight- an ethereal tranceey instrumental track with some chants. very pretty and inspiring.
4:silence- outstanding song. it has monks in the bigenning but after about 1:30 sarah mclachlan comes in, and starts singing. piano is interlaced through parts of the chorus and there is a nice piano solo at the end.
5:forgotten worlds- very otherworldly, you can see why they put the title there. the song takes you to a long forgotten temple and awakens it and brings you inside. it only starts out dark, then it begins to glow. Chanting in this one too.
6:lamenation- definitley tribal, especially during the first three minutes or so. then it gets really pretty. too bad it has such a long introduction. a little weak, could have been on semantic spaces.
7:euphoria (firefly)- two slightly slow instrumental somgs make way for a dancey pop song. this was the first single from the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars ENCHANTING September 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
From Enchanted:
'Prowling in the night Hiding 'neath my fright Manipulate my sight - thief'
From the haunting opener of children singing amidst mundane chimes and chilling lyrics by Kristy Thirsk to the angelic female singing of "Wisdom" and "'Til the End of Time", this CD is just too good for words. I've had it for [a few] yrs now and it still sounds new to me.... Sarah McLachlan, Kristy Thirsk, Camille Henderson and Jacqui Hunt definitely contribute to this celestial album which is close to becoming a masterpiece for the ages with ethereal sounscapes of sensual new age/trance beats; not to mention Gregorian style chantings of actual monks, made infamous on songs like the Egyptian "Rememberance" and the Middle Eastern "Lamentation". I extend my thanks to "Euphoria (Firefly)", however, which became my introduction to Delerium from hearing it through the Pure Moods II compilation. And while I'm undecided about which Delerium album is to be my favorite, one thing is for certain:
I will be cherishing this album 'til the end of all time.
This is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enchanting album August 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I consider "Karma" one of the greatest albums to date in the ambient genre. Rhys Fulber and Bill Leebs brings on some of the best female vocalists to accompany their haunting music such as Kristy Thirsk and Sarah McLachlan. Their vocals really elevate Delerium's music to a pinnacle of greatest in electronic music. I didn't think "Semantic Spaces" was all that hot. The album relied on too much gregorian chants which made that album come off sounding like an early Enigma cd. On "Karma", Bill Leebs and Rhys Fulber brought in female vocalists to breathe new life into their songs. Although it has taken 3-4 years for "Silence" to break radio, the song still sounds as fresh as I first heard it back in '97. This song proves that Sarah McLachlan and electronica music goes hand and hand. Is it any wonder that this song is a favorite for djs to put on their mix cds? Jacqui Hunt does a fabulous job on "Eurphoria", one of my personal favorite tracks on "Karma". Her vocals adds such depth to the haunting melody, sends chills down my spine. Kristy Thirsk does an equally magnificent job on "Enchanted", "Wisdom", and "Til the End of Time" (my favorite song by her on the album). I can't choose which Delerium album I love more, "Karma" or "Poem", both albums are classics to me but I will say that "Karma" is what got me into Delerium to begin with.
