A Wasteland of Buried Treasure

"Synaesthesia is yet another side-project by the guys who brought us Delerium and Frontline Assembly: Fulber/Peterson/and, of course, Bill Leeb. When I found this album used I was actually very shocked for Ephemeral is apparently a difficult CD to find. So, like any Delerium fan, I snatched it up and bought it. When I first listened to it, however, I thought to myself: 'What a wasteland of buried treasure'. This is a lot like early Delerium with its dark layers of ambience and touches of light industrial, but it also leans towards a subtle tribal version of Intermix (aka, Future Primitives). The songs are very long (ranging from 8 to 10 minutes) but you'll hardly take notice as the time passes you by for the songs are filled with mesmerizing bliss... in a chilling sort of way. I would honestly recommend that you buy this simply because of "Intelligence Dream" and "Naked Sun", which has more of an uptempo progressive drumbeat that reminds me a lot of something you'd hear on Semantic Spaces, which actually came out before this. If you can somehow get your hands on a copy of Synaesthesia's Ephemeral than I recommend that you do... It's definitely worth the search."

"I have to say Ephemeral is definitely the best of the Synaesthesia side project, though honestly I think the whole side project was great. I have to rate Ephemeral as pretty much equal to the Intermix - Future Primitives album as the best work by Leeb, Fulber, and Peterson in their industrial mode. If you're looking for something a little "darker" than these, try their Delerium releases Morpheus, and Spheres. If you can find them that is. Of course, you can try the whole catalog of Fulber & Leeb work in Front Line Assembly, Delerium, Intermix, Synaesthesia, Equinox, Pro-Tech, and I think a few others I'm missing. They should qualify as the most prolific artists of the last 20 years."
The best from Synaesthesia thus far

"This is one hard to find CD, finally I brought this album through an Amazon.com marketplace seller. And I am glad I did. This album is one of the best releases by Leeb & Peterson. As a long time fan of early Delerium, this album reminded me of Delerium's 'Semantic Spaces and 'Stone Tower' releases with its lite industrial beats and ambient sometimes dark synths mixed with tribal and natural sounds. There are 7 songs on this CD and all songs range from 8 mins to 11 mins in length, so the listener has time to take in each song and enjoy the sounds and the journey each separate song takes you down. Tracks 1 to 6 are remastered songs from other Synaesthesia CD's. Track 7 'Descartes' is a rare find a B-Side and is well worth the listen. I am very happy with this CD and its a wonderful journey into the inner sanctum of the mind and dreamscape."
