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.
