From the iPod #36 - "Flowers Become Screens"

Canada's Delirium is the brain child of former Frontline Assembly bandmate's Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber. Whereas the industrial Front Line Assembly can be abrasive at times, with Delerium, the duo create lush, sometimes danceable tracks, using various female vocalist's such as Sarah McLachlan and Leigh Nash. It's angelic voiced Kristy Thirsk, however, that does a lot of Delerium's vocals. Thirsk might have the voice of an angel, but she can whisper and moan with the best of them. On "Flowers Become Screens," one of the band's most popular tunes, she uses, very effectively, all three vocal styles. I met Leeb, Fulber, and Thirsk after a Delerium show in Boulder, Colorado. They couldn't have been nicer if they'd tried. Really cool people.

Keep in mind, though, that I listen to a lot of alternative bands that aren't really big names, other than the likes of Siouxsie and the Banshees or The Cure. I like a lot of other stuff, but I have more fun doing bands like this.
