Conjure Oneby Conjure One
Rhys Fulber had already proven his skills in ambient dance with Delerium. On Conjure One, he develops his own ideas further, applying a wonderful grasp of sounds from the Mediterranean and Middle East. Fulber traveled the world to put together this breathtaking work, which was recorded in Amsterdam, Vancouver, London, and Los Angeles. Given his busy production schedule, it's no surprise that this took three years to finish. The result is satisfying to say the least, as Conjure One is nothing short of sweeping ambient dance-pop. Like Sarah McLachlan's contribution to Delerium's "Silence," the guest vocalists here enhance Fulber's already powerful songwriting. Most magnificent are Sinéad O'Connor ("Tears From the Moon"), Poe ("Center of the Sun"), and Marie Claire D'Ubaldo ("Manic Star"). With other collaborations from Billy Steinberg and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, this ethereal solo debut (if you can call it a solo effort) is another big step forward for Fulber, as well as culturally diverse pop. A limited-edition version comes with a second disc of remixes.

It evokes so many simultaneous feelings: peace, awe, joy, excitement. There is no one word to describe the beauty of this cd. I feel as if I've been whisked away to a beautiful, mysterious, and exotic land. Wonderful for relaxing and chilling out.
I was turned onto this album from a internet forum. I had asked if any one was a Delerium fan, if so, what similar groups did they like. This was the response, and I think I actually like this better.
Conjure One is the new project by Rhys Fulber, who is well known for his work in Delerium and Front Line Assembly. I miss his contributions to Delerium but I find this album interesting and enjoyable to listen to. It's got a excellent ambient beat with great vocalists Sinéad O'Connor (Tears of the moon), Poe(Center of the sun). I recommend this to fans of Delerium!
“Conjure One” by Conjure One contains illustrious chillout/synth pop tracks that capture a spectrum of human feelings. “Center Of The Sun”, “Tears From The Moon” (feat. Sinead O’Connor), “Make A Wish”, and “Sleep” are among some of the multiple tracks on this cd that are poignant.
