Vancouver techno-pop enterprise Delerium may be most widely known for getting Sarah McLachlan played in dance clubs; the famed songstress lent her vocals to their 1997 hit "Silence." DJ Tiesto's familiar dance-floor overhaul of the tune sets the pace for the double-disc compilation Odyssey, on which a procession of remix artists chop tracks from Delerium albums Semantic Spaces (1994), Karma (1997), and Poem (2000) into lengthy workouts. The selections favor straight-up disco and house over the sort of ambient experimentation that might have been culled from the original material. But the dub-styled "Flowers Become Screens (Return Mix)" and--on the spacier second disc--a goth-tinged take on "Silence (Fade's Sanctuary Mix)" offer a breather from the collection's rather athletic nature. Besides a clutch of previously released tracks, Odyssey also includes rare mixes of "Underwater," "Euphoria (Rabbit in the Moon's Divine Gothic Disco Mix)," and "Heaven's Earth (Matt Darey Remix)." And Delerium's trademark ethereal guest vocal tracks remain largely intact, so you can float and dance at the same time. --Kieran Grant

Delerium is one of those rare bands that succeed in getting me hipped for a new release. Ever since I bought KARMA two years ago, followed by their 2000 release, POEM, I have become an official fan of their synthy pop fusion with gregorian chantings and world infections. So once I found out about a forthcoming remixed album I nearly sky-rocketed through the roof of my house. I love Delerium yet I also thrive on the pulsating beats of techno and electronica so the exploration of this ODYSSEY was highly anticipated, and nay was I once disappointed or left feeling empty upon questing. It wasn't until a couple weeks after I purchased this, though, that I began to worry if it had really been worth my money. I searched everywhere for a playlist yet it was nowhere to be found. And then when it did appear it only had songs from their more recent albums SEMNATIC SPACES, KARMA, and POEM, which was sort of a letdown. I'd been expecting remixes dating all the way back to their darker more industrial days as well as their newer more lighter material. Instead they've chosen 8 different songs to be remix by professionals such as DJ Tiesto and Matt Darey, including Silence (3xs), Underwater (2xs), Heaven's Earth (2xs), Innocente (2xs), Euphoria Firefly (1x), Duende (2xs), Flowers Become Screens (2xs), and Incantation (1x).
In the beggining I completely agreed with many other reviewers that thought it ridiculous having remixed two, sometimes three versions of the same song but after hearing this CD several times through I couldn't disagree anymore. No one song sounds alike to another for (whether it be techno, disco, electronica, or heavy dubbing) they're all in their own varied styles; nor do any of the rhythms linger on one continous vibe.

I admit that I'm no authority on Trance music. I do know what I like and don't like. This CD I LOVE, but let me tell you why. OK first off, listening to CD1 I wasn't all too impressed, but still entertained. I then popped in CD2 with lowered expectations and WOW was I IMPRESSED!!! To me, this is Trance music at it's best... a beautiful adrenaline journey of high energy mixed with layers of gorgeous, dreamy vocals. I'm no Sarah McLachlan fan and am actually sick of her over-played songs but these mixes work with her vocals wonderfully. If you are a big fan of Sarah M then you will for sure want this CD set. This set is an audible journey I will gladly take over and over.

I was rather disappointed that this remix collection consists of the songs that Delerium released as singles. The remixes in general are good. I love the remixes to "Innocente", one of my favorite songs off the group's recent album "Poem". The song itself sounds better than the original. Hearing the remixes for "Flowers Become Screens", "Underwater", "Duende", "Incantation", and "Euphoria (Firefly)" was new to me. What really resonated with me (and I don't mean that in a good way either) was the repetiveness of this compilation. Was it really necessary to listen to the same songs but remixed differently for almost two hours? Frankly I could have lived without two different versions of every song on this cd. Delerium should have chosen their best remixes of each song and put that particular remix on the cd. Having two cds was just ridiculous and pointless. I love Delerium but I fail to see why I had to listen to two different versions of "Silence", "Duende", "Innocente", "Heaven's Earth", "Flowers Become Screens", and "Underwater". The second disc should have been remixes of songs that weren't released as singles. I was terribly disappointed that all this wait for this cd to be released was a moot point.

I am not really a fan of remixing great songs and so I purchased this CD with great trepidation. I saw the Compilation Listings for both CD's and wondered like many reviewers before me why Delerium would remix two or three copies of the same song. So with bated breath I listened to the CD for the first time expecting really nothing at all.

I was shocked and surprised, shocked because the mixed songs sounded better than the originals and surprised that they didnt mix some of the early songs from other albums like Drama or Embodyment.

The remixed versions of Silence and Euphoria work well and I can see and understand why they are hits on many night-club dance floors. If you are having a party or simply chilling out at home, this CD with 12 great remixed versions of songs that any Delerium fan would know and love is the best way to enjoy yourselves.

Get this CD if you are having a party - trust me the guests would be grooving to the early hours of the morning.

The cover says Delerium: Odyssey, the Remix Collection. It does not say Delerium: Odyssey, the Album. Most Delerium fans will not like this double CD set as evidenced by the other reviews listed.
However, if you enjoy electronica and dance as I do, then this is just what you're looking for. One of the most popular tracks, DJ Tiesto's version of Silence, starts it off. Both Heaven's Earth remixes are noteworthy, as are the two Innocentes. Not every song is perfect, mind you, but considering there are two discs here, there is more than enough to make it a must buy. I wish they had released this sooner instead than forcing me to scavenge for their past singles which only had one or two good songs on each.
Be sure to pick this up if you like Tiesto, bt, Chicane, or Ferry Corsten.
