DELERIUM Karma (1997 UK 17-track picture 2-CD set comprising 11-track CD album featuring guest musicians Sarah McLachlan Kristy Thirsk Jacqui Hunt Greg Reely and Camille Henderson and includes the singles Euphoria [Firefly] Duende and Silence [featuring Sarah McLachlan]. Plus bonus 6-track remix CD which includes Silence [Sanctuary Mix] and Incantation [12 Mix Edit] picture sleeve)
The novelty was strip-mined from ethno-beat pop long ago, and this skin-deep confection is surprising only in its lack of edge and invention. On the plus side, the melodies are textured and lush, the beats entrancing, and a parade of gifted singers--Kristy Thirsk, Jacqui Hunt, and Sarah McLachlan included--bill and coo impressively. Lead single "Euphoria (Firefly)" has spark and spirit, while "Enchanted" and "Duende" are strong vehicles for Thirsk and Camille Henderson respectively. --Jeff Bateman

I think every track on Karma has it's own unique, subtle magic... which leads to a quietly stirring experience overall. The vocals, where used, are excellent, and the occasional 'chanting' fits nicely once you eventually adopt the idea.
This quaint style of music is unlikely to be fully appreciated by all, but to the deep and thoughtful (and tasteful) among us it should be well received and liked - perhaps even loved.
Karma is definitely strange in nature, but truly beautiful in spirit.
Imagine a fusion of the very best of Enigma and Deep Forest blended with female vocals that rival even those of Lisa Gerrard. Now consider it done with the artistic integrity and creative identity that is the hallmark of any Delerium album and you're getting close to the rare beauty of this cd. It's dreamier than other recent works by Leeb and Fulber; more beautifully crafted than Poem and less glossy and rigidly song-based than the nevertheless gifted Chimera. Rhys Fulber's Conjure One album also bears comparison ... but I digress.
Karma's keyboard rhythms are to die for. Simple yet unfamiliar, they supply layer upon layer of evocative, ethereal landscape. Add some ethnic chants and a range of other sounds and you end up with a production blessed with more than a hint of other-worldly mysticism and Middle-Eastern charm. All in all it's the perfect backdrop for accomplished chanteuses/songwriters to display their wares and we are not disappointed.
Singling out individual tracks would be pointless as they all shine and every listener will have their favourites, but the album versions of 'Heaven's Earth' and 'Silence' are exquisite and so much better than the many remixes available. Incidentally, if you collected some of the albums mentioned above and their respective bonus discs you will by now have enough material for a home-made compilation of dance mixes. It adds another dimension to Delerium's work and plays well on the car hi-fi, but it does seem slightly sacrilegious to put such earthy and ambient masterpieces to a techno beat.
If they're listening, I'll finish with a plea to the creators. Please work with Lisa Gerrard and Liz Fraser on the next album. A couple of tracks from each in a Karma-esque setting will do very nicely for starters.
