5.0 out of 5 stars If you never find me, at least I found you! 16 July 2002
By R. Wallace VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
And it is so true! Some of life's best secrets, remain secret, unless a few of us are lucky enough to find them. This CD is one such example of one of life's undiscovered gems! CD1 of this album is nothing short of a pure romantic's classic! It is worth the price for the lyrics alone! They are inspiring to the extreme! They touch, tease and caress every angle of love, passion and loss. Check out track 7......."im living in your dreams, I'm where you cannot be, i'm way out of your reach, i'm where you cannot see. Is it you, or is it me?" (been there?) Now add some of the most talented "dance" and "chilled" female vocalists of the last decade (Kirsty Hawkshaw of "BT" fame, Jennifer Mc Laren, Leigh Nash), mix superb production (I mean superb - the arrangements here would make Madonna weep!), and a little superlative song writing by Bill Leeb, and you have a CD written only because they had to write it, simple as that! The opening track "Innocente" is one of the few songs I know that is totally lyrical, yet the music and lyrics go to bed with each other in sublime fashion! Other highlights include the sheer passion of "Myth" (check out the amazing trumpet chorus line)and "a poem for byzantium" - a true love song in every sense of the word! POEM will not be to everyone's taste (Oasis fans forget it), but I challenge ANY reviewer who claims to like the new so fashionable "chilled" scene, and who can appreciate superb and diversified female lyrics without a hint of "folk", to buy this album. In a sense it is like true love.......once sampled, you will never forget it! An undiscivered masterpiece swimming high in a sea of medeoicre compilations (if you have never loved, this CD may just inspire you!). Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent work 10 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bill Leeb (Delerium) has done a great job. The songs are incredible...each one is multiple layered with sounds and voices and instruments. Listen to it with earphones and you'll be surprised how beautiful and colourful music can be! For the first time Bill Leeb has used real instruments and a male vocalist. On every song there's this mix of electronic and real strings, guitars and even choirs! Live drums mixed with electronic drum beats. Normally on his earlier albums, the songs are electronic instrumentals. On Poem we can only find 1 instrumental! Another instrumental track is "Terra Firma" (not listed in the track list above) is the fifth track on the bonus disc and is featured in the new Tomb Raider movie. --The very first pressing of Poem, which was only available as an import, had a track called "Temptation" on, an extremely beautiful track which features Lisa Gerrard, who did the soundtrack for "Gladiator". In Canada and USA, Delerium is known as a gothic ambient band....but over here in the UK...due to the success of the Silence remix by airscape...people think they're trance. -They're not! Delerium used to be more ambient, but for this UK release, they selected the more "commercial" tracks. Beautiful pop ballads and dance tracks. -On the bonus discs are 3 trance remixes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wall of sound 10 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First heard Silence on a compilation album and was interested enough to buy Poem without any hesitation. Poem is brilliant especially through a good set of headphones. Its a wall of sound that you'll play again and again....and I have.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful listen 6 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not been listening to Delerium long, first became interested in them when they released Silence as a trance /dance amthem here in the UK. This CD is absolutely incredible, the songs take you to so many different levels, the music is rich and vibrant, and the vocals are purely angelic. A must for chill-out sessions, uplifting gurus and easy-listening bods

5.0 out of 5 stars Delerium's most Mature and Diverse album yet. 25 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Well, it was a long time coming... was it worth the wait? Would Delerium be any good without Rhys? Will Delerium ever appear on TOTP?!!! The answers are; yes, yes and probably!
This album stands out from anything Delerium have done before in two ways. The first being that they have ditched the cliched Enigma sound and gone for something alot more original and diverse. Listening through it you can here tribal, rock, folk, trance, gothic, choral and even pop influences. The pop feel prevails on Poem and this is helped along by the addition of several guest vocalists. Leigh Nash from 'Sixpence none the Richer', Matthew Sweet and Kirsty Hawkshaw among others only add to the varied and original feel, while not detracting from the usual enchanting Delerium Sound.
Overall this Album succeeds where previous efforts have not. An overall ethereal, soulful and varied feel should give Delerium the big break they richly deserve.
What more can I say? Buy it and I promise you will not be disappointed! 5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as Karma, by Delerium. 6 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I found that this album was slightly different to what I expected, as I have Karma, and Semantic Spaces (also by Delerium) But it was still entralling. The music is not quite as 'spritual' as their last two releases (And I use that term Loosely). The music had a more simplistic tune to each song, and the backing was less 'ornate' than the prior. There was definatly a lack of the amazing volcals that featured promently in Karma. Also the instrementation did not have the depth of the last two albums. Not to be discredited though, the songs were very relaxing and the remix of 'silence' at the end was fantastic. Overal,the C.D is well worth listening to, and Delerium must be congratulated on keeping up their high standards of work. A nice addition to any Delerium fans collection.
