It's an album about leaving home, and it works best when the contrast between the folk singer and the pop production chimes with the tensions between the pull of home and the allure of the city.
The results are moody [ It's largely straight-ahead folk-pop dappled with a mild ground-frost of sequenced beats, Auto-Tune , and synth sizzles.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. A delightful album, of course. My only complaint is with the recording production.
Ellie's second release, "Delirium," is very finely crafted in its recording production values. I've listened using my Shure headphones, my Audeze headphones, and my Sennheiser headphones, and the music just comes across as lacking clarity and sound-staging compared to "Delirium. This is my first purchase of Ellie's work, and I must say that it exceeded my expectations. In the era of autotune and rap, this is a refreshing and welcome voice.
Ellie's voice is lighter and cuter than fellow English singer Adele's, who has too strong of a voice for me to appreciate. Her songs all have a catchy beat except for Your Song with mature lyrics, helping Ellie establish herself and forge her own path in the music industry. At first, I clearly found the first half of the album vastly superior to the second half. However, upon several more listens, the difference is much greater.
