Best of delerium's pre-dance CDs
audrey | white mtns | 07/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber started Delerium as a side project to release their ambient music. (They released their more danceable music under the nom de plume Frontline Assembly.) Later Delerium itself became danceable and more accessible, particularly with the added vocals of Kristy Thirsk, but this early album (1989) is the best of pre-dance Delerium. Good heavy beats, trance-like rhythms and creepy samples combine to weave haunting and disturbing music which could be used for horror movie soundtracks.In Greek mythology, Morpheus is the god of sleep and dreams -- not the best choice if you want to dance, but if you're in the mood to light candles and explore your darker inner core, this would be a great addition to your collection."
Not for everyone

"'Morpheus' is an album that is so unlike later albums like 'Karma' and 'Semantic Spaces'. This one is definitely a more contemplative one, not very dancable, sounds more like a soundtrack to a horror movie, with different dialogues and sounds of breaking objects spliced in; it is basically an experimental sonic collage, intended for a very narrow musical tastes, learn more about it before purchasing. 'Spiritual Archives' is another Delerium album that continues in the same tradition, buy 'Morpheus' if you liked 'Spiritual Archives'"
The best Delerium album ever released

"Morpheus is the darkest, most mood altering sampling of Delerium's music. The sound is indicative of the "old Delerium," from the Euphoric and Syrophenikan days before they changed their style. If you your experience with Delerium is restricted to their new stuff like "Silence," then Morpheus is definitely a strong shift in style. In my opinion however, this album has a far superior sound to any of the new Delerium."
