I know what you're thinking. Is this album packed with 5 or only 4 tracks introducing modulation? Well, I must admit in the heat of the modulation blitz on this album I kinda lost track myself, but considering this album was made with modulation lovers in mind AND as such will blow your head CLEAN off, you just gotta ask yourself one question: Do I like modulation? Well, do you ... punk?!

Apologies for the long introduction but the heavy use of modulation (i.e. a change in pitch, typically, one note up or down) on this album calls for attention. It's an old debated topic in psytrance circles: Is it cheesy or ain't it? I find it cheesy, I'm afraid, not quite sure what bugs me the most; the fact that the artist wants to entertain me doing the exact same thing only one note different or the fact that the artist apparently doesn't have any more to offer! Not that there is anything wrong with modulation in itself, but it's a tricky path to walk. One example (of many!) where it's used splendidly is Cosmosis' track Inner Space from Contact. On Delirious it just sounds like a typical, easy way out.

Anyhow, besides challenging my taste with his love for modulation, Oforia's album aint bad. Aint bad at all :o) It holds much of the mid nineties goa'ish feeling I like from this period, though I prefer it even more melodic. Closing track Dew Point is a beauty, though. Also opener Maximiser, Cream, and the title track Delirious maintains a good pumping rhythm and are bound still to set the dance floors on fire. Provided the modulation issue isn't an issue!

So, in conclusion. If you don't mind or even like modulation and looking for quality mid nineties goa, you need to try this. Chances are you'll love it for it's catchiness, energy, and goa'ish feeling. If you don't like modulation this album will put you to the test on 4 tracks, but there may very well be enough good tracks to go around still :o)
