A departure from the earlier albums,
This review is from: Exilarch (Audio CD)
After Extraordinary Ways I had really high hopes for this album and had to wait a long 5 years for its arrival.
I have held off writing this review for a couple of months further as on the first few listens it was a disappointment, Extraordinary ways dragged you in with strong tracks from the very beginning; Exilarch starts with Like Ice and the first minute is a shimmering noise; this sets the stage for an hour of very relaxing music but moves away from the pop sounds and vocals of the earlier albums. I have come around; and tracks like Places That Don't exist helped greatly as the piano on it is excellent and I am a sucker for a good piano solo. Exilarch is much closer to Delerium than any of the previous Conjure One albums and for me that is a shame the pop like qualities of the earlier albums are what attracted me to them in the first place.

Interesting you should say this because I think the most recent Delerium offerings have been more pop-vocal orientated. Maybe we should do a swap! :)
