Top Customer Reviews
One last thought: As a longtime fan of Front Line Assembly (which is how I learned of Delerium), the popularity of the recent Delerium albums is astounding. If you are curious about what Bill and Rhys were known for back in the 80s, check out their re-released FLA ablums State of Mind or Corrorded Disorder. And if you just love the newer Delerium ablums, you might also like the newer FLA material like Epitaph. It's more agressive, and the lyrics are pretty silly at times, but it can be a fun ride.
Then, a few weeks ago I saw them live. I became converted, and really began to enjoy their singing material. Though, I knew just because it sounded good in an energetic live setting, that didn't mean that I would like it on CD. I finally broke down, and picked up a copy of "Semantic Spaces". This is definitely the transition album. It only has two songs with lyrics, and one of those is "Flowers Become Screens", which is very hard to resist. Kristy Thirsk has a wonderful voice with a powerful range, and carries the song well. The instrumentals are not the expansive landscaped of the previous albums. They're a bit more poppy, but I was able to get into them.
At the end of the day, if you're a fan of the old Delerium and Frontline Assembly, and have been hesitant to get into the newer and prettier material, this is definitely a safe place to start. I can't stop listening to it. I'm hooked.
This (along with Karma and Poem) are highly recommended to trance and new age fans alike, so stop reading this and buy it already! You won't be disappointed, I promise.

No one compares to Delerium. And if they have to "steal" some samples from other artists to create such achingly beautiful_dreamy landscapes, let them do it. Read morePublished on May 1 2004
Semantic Spaces is a good album and at best, really enjoyable.
Some really enjoyable tracks in the album are "Incantation" and "Flowers become screens". Read more
I love Delerium. I love this CD. But track 9 skips. I returned the CD and recieved a new one, and it still skips. Buy the CD, it's great, just don't get too attatched to track #9. Read morePublished on Oct. 20 2003 by Jennifer Mortillo-Contrano
A great Delerium album. Bill Leeb yet again. The album has a few "breaking points" but nonetheless holds up for a full-cd listen.Published on July 22 2003 by M.B.
I like this Delerium CD, but not as much as Enigma, Deep Forest or Amethystium. I think Delerium has parts of it's CD "copied" from Enigma, Deep Forest etc. Read morePublished on May 9 2003 by Wet Mars

First of all, I like Enigma, and I also like Front Line Assembly (these guy's main project) but I wasn't blown away by this album for some reason. Read morePublished on Jan. 7 2003
The first track, Flowers Become Screen is a great opening...so errie. It creates the "lost in the woods" atmosphere. Read morePublished on Sept. 9 2002 by Daryl Tay
