CD 1 contains earlier songs from the band and some you may have heard during the worship time at your own church. The best songs are "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever", "Shout to the North", "Message of the Cross", and "Thank You for Saving Me". All of the songs on this CD are open and honest praise to God, but I especially like these.
CD 2 shows Delirious? making a transition to a more complex song-writing style (similar to "King of Fools"). This CD contains the set's best song "Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble?". This song is an anthem of praise to God. It's absolutely fabulous. Other great songs include "I'm Not Ashamed", "I've Found Jesus", and "Obsession".
If you're a fan of Delirious?, this is a must have. If you love praise and worship music, this is a must have. If you love great music, well, you get the idea - you will not be disappointed. God really has a way of blessing your work if glorify Him in all that you do - and these songs do that with a passion!
The band's name did not seem promising and the guy clearly had an interest in promoting his project. I didn't take him too seriously.
A decade later and with many Delirious cds on my shelf, I smile to recall this memory.
CUTTING EDGE was in fact the first name of the band. To appreciate this CD, you've got to enter the narrative of the insert and appreciate the band as a spiritual and musical phenomenon that seemed in the mid-90s as much a surprise to the musicians, managers, and hangers-on as anyone else. The United Kingdom is often referred to these days as 'post-Christian', a dismissive adjective that is overstated but, sadly, contains much more truth than one could wish.
The Delirious? phenomenon is, perhaps as much as anything else, audible testimony to the fact that the Lord does not easily abandon a nation. Dry bones are unpromising material, the prophet Ezekiel would concede, but when breathed upon by the Lord's spirit are capable of becoming a mighty army.
Such rhetoric, with its palpable biblical allusiveness, is part and parcel of the Delirious? package.
Before anything else, these tracks give us worship songs. Those looking for highly-produced, densely-packed, expertly-scored music like that of, say, Steven Curtis Chapman, are likely to walk away from this double-cd package disappointed and a bit glazed over.
Delirious? was and is a work in progress.Read more ›

This album reveals real heart of Delirious?: Intimacy and passion for Jesus.

I had listened to more current Delirious music and liked it. My wife had ordered this CD and gave it to my daughter. It sat around for awhile. Read morePublished on September 13, 2005 by Douglas J. Bunge
Not much to say, except that this is an album to get. It will have some songs that are familiar to most, and many that aren't. But that's the beauty of it. Read morePublished on March 31, 2002 by P. Fung
Simply put, this album is a great example of a modern worship band's ability to make great music. I have spent several years searching for Christian bands that can play music that... Read morePublished on May 7, 2001 by D. Keating
The Cutting Edge CD's represent probably the best worship music produced by Delirious right at the beginning of their life as a band. Read morePublished on May 3, 2001
This is a very powerful album. Delirious can blow you away because they are very annointed. Their music is very similar to U2, so if you like that type, and you love to worship... Read morePublished on April 30, 2001
