Extraordinary Ways

All Music Guide - Kenyon Hopkin
Three years after an impressive debut, Rhys Fulber shows his solo project wasn't a one-shot deal nor a lucky stab at reinvention. Extraordinary Ways is similar to Conjure One, in that it's lush and majestic ambient pop. The difference this time around is more in the recording process and Fulber's inspirations.

Fulber even contributes vocals himself, on an unexpected cover of the Buzzcocks' "I Believe." It's a little out of place, but still interesting. Toward the end, the impact drops down a notch, and one wishes the vocalists had some better melodies with which to work. Nonetheless, this is an engaging and spiritual listen.

    Powerful vocalists

    'Extraordinary Ways' is similar to Conjure One the first album. Rhys Fulber can't go wrong with the powerful vocalists Jane, Tiff Lacey, Chemda, Joanna Stevens & Leah Randi. It's majestic ambient-pop, it's engaging and somewhat spiritual. If you are a Delerium fan, you are going to love this album!
