It just gets better and better
on 11 April 2008
They have been going for thirteen years, but each new album that Delirious? makes goes into a league of its own. The new album, "Kingdom of Comfort", their ELEVENTH studio album, doesn't break this chain - it extends it even further. Each album has its own unique qualitites and incredible stories attached to it; their previous album, "The Mission Bell", was all about (obviously) mission, letting go of everything and following Jesus, wherever he leads you. The new album moves slightly away from the worship and concentrates on real-life stories - very hard-hitting stories - emanating from places like India, where the band went from feeding slum kids to staying in a five-star hotel. They have described this album as being the "most uncomfortable" yet.
The twelve songs on this album are truly amazing, each one a gift in itself. Delirious? have proved once and for all that they are one of the best bands around, even if mainstream artists were included. As this album is released, I'll be hoping their next album is just as stunning as this one. And I know it will be.
