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.
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.Read more ›
'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.
