Syrophrenikan is in my opinion the best "early" Delerium. This album has very heavy percussion, and mixes them with haunting, and fleeting "ghost sound" synth samples. Like many of Delerium's early albums, it seems to tell a story, without words. If this is the case, the ephiphany song is definately "Fallen Idols" which I used as the basis of a short-story I wrote for my school's literary magazine…oh the results. However, "Twilight Rituals" is also very good, hinting at Deleriums more laid back "new age" sound in later albums. I also recomend "Shroud" as it is VERY freaky sounding (what is that reacurring high pitched "whinnying" sound?).

Review by Joel Youngblood, Amazon.com
My last Delerium album, "Spheres vol.1" left me a bit cold with the bizarre repetitive ambient sounds that came off as one continuous song throughout the album. Still it didn't stop me from looking further into Bill Leebs and Rhys Fulber's catalog with the latest purchase of "Syrophenikon". Now this is the album that I was hoping that "Spheres vol.1" would be but wasn't. From the very second I started hearing the dark rhymthmic beats of "Embodying" I just flipped over what I heard. "Syrophenikon" is a far cry from "Karma" and "Poem" but I knew what I was getting into when I decided to start delving into Delerium's earlier albums. Only 47 minutes long, "Syrophenikon" left this listener breathless and happy to have bought it. "Syrophenikon" remains firmly attached in the ambient sound that Delerium fans have come to love and know them for but layered with a darker, more gothic sound with heavy African percussion beats. "Prophecy" is my very, very favorite song on this lovely album but every song is good in its own right and it wouldn't be fair to them if I chose favorites among the tracks. After listening to "Syrophenikon" and thinking of their more recent albums, I am amazed by how far Delerium's sound has changed over the years. The transistion in the group's music is spectacular and I hope that Delerium's music continues to change with every album they put out.
