Cirque du Soleil deliberately repeat themselves in Delirium, at least as far as the album of music based on the touring stage show is concerned. In most cases, producer, arranger, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Francis Collard, who is the major force behind the disc, samples from tracks on previous Cirque du Soleil albums. What he creates from them is a series of conventional songs in a widescreen pop
ock style, heavy on the keyboard textures and synthesized dance beats. There's nothing here as exotic as some of Cirque du Soleil's soundscapes. The songs all have lyrics, too, most of them written by Robbie Dillon, and most of them in English, with some in French. Those lyrics are cliché-filled, simpleminded expressions of pop philosophy for the most part, but still, this remains one of Cirque du Soleil's more listenable and coherent collections.

Once again, the creative minds at Cirque du Soleil have found a new way to surprise us with an unexpectedly upbeat, and at times, almost rockin' album. The music here seems to follow very closely that in the show of the same name and should not be confused with Cirque's earlier Delirium/Solarium release of a few years ago. Though both share a percussive electronic approach to remixing songs from the existing catalogue, Delirium is far more accessible. The addition of lyrics makes for a collection of catchy pop tunes, some of which are quite infectious. One Love, Slipping Away, and Cold Flame in particular seem very radio-friendly and likely to bring Cirque their first real "hits" since Alegria. All of this seems to indicate that the new directions and projects that Cirque du Soleil has recently embarked on will continue their long-standing tradition of innovation and creativity. Their determination not to repeat themselves is refreshing in a entertainment business that often insists on feeding us the same old leftovers again and again ad nauseum.

I saw this show live when it came to atlanta... I guess.. my view on the soundtrack is that it is better than the show...and more musical... and alot more energising with a lot of get up and gooo type stuff... tis a good soundtrack... to do active things... like running jogging...
