Delerium - Semantic Spaces

Delerium – Flowers Become Screens

At the crossroads between old and new, wonders can happen. This song showcases Delerium’s transformation from an interesting electronic music act into a new age wonder that fuses dance music with stellar vocal performances and surreal lyrics.

From the very beginning, whispers and choirs ease the listener into a mystic mood. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, the drum machine kicks in and the body wants to join the dance. Groovy and mysterious, hopeful and solemn, this melody has a flow like few others. It is the perfect opener for “Semantic Spaces”, one of the best Delerium albums (and one of my all-time favorites).

Pink Floyd - The Division Bell

Pink Floyd – Marooned

Imagine a deserted beach. Imagine the blue waves, imagine a white sky, imagine a lonely guitar with emerald chords, imagine a ruby piano. Imagine seagulls gliding in the air, no effort at all, just waltzing in wind’s embrace. If there’s anything that can be said about this song is that it’s the spark that lights the fire of our imagination. Deep inside the mind, there’s a pyre made up of the thoughts that sometimes suffocate the purity of our soul. So let it burn, let unknowing innocence spread its wings, let go…

Solstafir - Svartir Sandar

Solstafir – Fjara

In the mood for some excellent metal music? This song’s multidimensional beauty never ceases to amaze. With every passing second, we are rising, step by step, towards the divine nature of art. The choir with which the song ends is one of the most evocative I’ve ever heard. Splendid instrumentation and structure complete the masterpiece.

El Huervo - Don't Lay Waste To Homes

El Huervo – Rest

It starts gently enough. A minute later, the second movement kicks in and any seasoned listener knows that they’re in for a good ride. It ebbs and flows, playing our imagination’s inner chords. It teases us for a while and then, a bit more than half-way through, it comes. Spitting fire and awesome low frequencies, the song’s third movement is what the artist was preparing us for all along. Enjoy the trip!
