I so want to like this station, but you always ruin in with tuneless ululation. 
 

I'm from America and I really don't know what the Hell this comment means?!?
Looking back at your song comments, you do an aweful lot of complaining about RP.
Why are you even here?
BTW, I thought this song was pretty cool.

Yep, only on RP would you get this sort of stuff mixed in with 'regular' indie/alternative music. Another fine mélange of influences making a fascinating whole.

A Pedant writes: the last two letters in the band title on the sleeve are in fact the Greek mu and psi (albeit upside down), so would lead a pedant to pronounce the band's name as Deliriump. Which might not be so bad :o)
 
Agreed on the praise for RP. And actually it says "delerimps"...

Poem is the first album of theirs by the way in a succession of worse and worse. They achieved their best balance between gothic/ambient and pop on Karma. Here, the balance started to tip towards utterly bland pop.

Pretty awesome regardless of what country you're from, IMO.

I perhaps should leave it to americans to respond to this comment, but to avoid a genre of music seems like a most unlikely reason to travel (even temporarily) from one country to another.
I would like to think that america would offer some other attractions, or the 'people' to whom you refer may be very disappointed by the country, and by pretty much any country that they choose to visit.

I quite like this record, but would not choose to change my country of residence to listen to it,or other records like it, either more or less.

Now were getting somewhere. New and unpredictable music, not poetry. music that must stand on its own merit, not supported by 'meaningful' lyrics. thank you.
first thumb piano segue I ever heard
from MMW to Delerium


I'll dance to this...

 
I have listened to this album hundreds of times I love it

Yep.....that's a yes!

Sharp eye, Fred. Thanks for that bit 'o fun.

Also Intermix, Leeb and Fulber have been busy since the 80's...love them all
Nice tune, a bit like William Orbit

Unfortunate selection


Seems to create strong divided opinions.  Me, I like it so far.

I don't believe music has a sexual preference.

 
I must disagree; so many musicians started out in the hopes of getting laid.

After this posting there were 5 more postings quoting "whtahtefcuk".  Each chastising the poster and their perceived insensitivity/intolerance, all for one word!  What if he meant 'happy'?  And if it was intended to be intolerant you happy 5 (6 with me) managed to amplify his message.  Now that is gay!

Wow, I didn't know this.  Thanks for the info.  I loved me some FA in their day!!

Afrocelts meets Enigma.

Chanting gets a 7, cheesy beat gets a 2 = 5

What kind of a comment is that? Please get your music history and insight straight. Until then shut it. Delerium is the side-project of EBM/electronica pioneers Front Line Assembly.

If by Gay you mean cool, awesome, trippy, terrific then you are correct sir.

  Like, every third of your comments is using "gay" as a derogatory. Would you please stop it.

For those who like this i strongly recommend an earlier album of them named "Spheres" from 1994. Less derivative, more dark chorals and huge synthy arrangements.
I feel motivated to dig out both of these albums now. Haven't listened to them in years. Groovy!
Me NO like!

Nice as a backdrop while working. I'd get tired of it otherwise.
This is huge!
Well, I personally can not get enough of the Chanting, Techno, mashed world beat goulash.

The whole "Monks singing plainsong in a techno world-beat song" thing was cool when Enigma did it 15 years ago. Now it sounds derivative. I must admit that it's a good derivation, however. Nice rhythm.
Well spoken! :high-five:

this flows GREAT out of "Sheep" from FLOYD.
I'm finding that it's also a great fit when it flows out of Everything In Its Right Place by Radiohead.

...Much better than the OTHER thing that flows great out of Sheep! 8.
nice. derivative can be good.

"Requiem Eternam" means "eternal rest" and that's exactly what I think this band should take. :sleep:

Nice . . . puts me in a nice kicked-back mood as I try to wrap things up at work. :clap:
not to brag ... but its truely amazing what a 6.1 speaker system does with the creative audigy 2 card ... its like being immursed in the music sometimes.. very cool! ;) oh and the music\'s good too :D
iT FEELS LIKE A KIND OF MYSTIC COUNTRY :)
I wish all radio stations played songs by mood. :notworthy:

Did I mention I like this group? If not, then I like this group.
:clap: nice trance ambiance piece to add to the mix.
Funky Monks Handy Chants Too bad nobody has any opinions. :roll:
Overplayed!
Never heard this before, but I like it. Great beat! :)
If there is one song that makes me think \"I\'m listening to Radio Paradise\" this is it. Never been sure that I like it, but it is a comforting old friend after all this time :)
God I love this kind of stuff. I really don\'t know why. I could pick it apart like some of those below but. But it just feels right from somewhere in my chest. It almost matches what I feel from a good blues song. The two genres could barely be farther apart, but there you are.
Fantastic panta rei music. On my way into deep meditation!
I love the chanting. It adds to the overall ethereal feel of the song.
Hey, that one sure gave the equalizer on my WinAmp a workout! :p
