Overview

The ten years since Delerium "found themselves" on the dreamy Semantic Spaces album have been filled with dancefloor hits, guest vocalists (mostly female), and two million units sold. Bet you forgot Delerium is/was a Front Line Assembly side project! Besides Rhys Fulber, Bill Leeb, and stacks of synths, Delerium and Front Line Assembly share a love of structure; it's just that Delerium favors pretty over gritty. There's plenty of glorious, grandiose orchestration on The Best of Delerium, and more widescreen, dreamy bliss than you can imagine. Sarah McLachlan set the standard for Delerium contributors with her work on "Silence," here in its original album mix, not the more remembered "Sanctuary" remix. The new remix of "Silence" tacked onto the end of the collection is close enough to the "Sanctuary" remix to be a suitable replacement, and all the other tracks that made it onto the dancefloor or radio are included. If you enjoy the precious lyrics over grand trance side of Delerium you couldn't ask for a better collection, but don't think you're getting the whole story. Delerium's albums do more wandering and get darker, while Best Of goes for the sweet fluff. That's not a putdown, since this sweet fluff is absolutely delicious and inspired, even the new Pachelbel-copping "Paris" with guest vocalist Aude. Leeb and Fulber have been mining the same darling territory for a decade now, but it keeps giving up gold. Focusing on Delerium's showy, pop side, Best Of gives you all the choice nuggets.

“The Best of Delerium” by Delerium is a superb collection of songs that span the chillout, trance, electronica music genres. The musical tracks are soul-nourishing and provide musical stories of the power of emotions (such as love). The following musical tracks provide a glimpse into the gems on this cd: “Paris” featuring Aude “Silence” featuring Sarah McLachlan “Euphoria” (Firefly) featuring Jacqui Hunt “Flowers Become Screens” featuring Kristy Thirsk “Truly” featuring Nerina Pallot (Wise Buddha Radio Edit) “Run For It” featuring Leigh Nash “Innocente (Falling In Love)” featuring Leigh Nash “Incantation” featuring Kristy Thirsk “The Best of Delerium” by Delerium is best for those who enjoy unique music that is similar to the Pure Moods series and/or world music based out of Europe.

This CD is a great way to immerse yourself in all the different and unique sounds of Delerium. With the exception of not including 'Fallen' (one of my favorites), this CD very accurately grabs the best of just about everything other Delerium production. Very relaxing but also capable of being pretty catchy too, Delerium touches upon all the emotions with their wide array of acoustic and electronic instrumentation and beautiful vocals. If you are curious about this group, I would definitely buy this CD first.
