Like Poem, mostly a collection of vocal tracks with various guest artists, though here the tracks tend to be a more conventional length and therefore there are more of them. Also like the preceding albums, the tracks are lush, multi-layered soundscapes. There are two instrumental (well, they don't have lyrics...) tracks - Serenity and Eternal Odyssey. Rani and Leigh Nash, both from Poem, return (Run For It does sound similar to Innocente) as does Kristy Thirsk who was a regular during the Karma/Semantic Spaces phase of Delerium.

The track that made the album for me was Forever After and its unique mix of rap and song, all in Turkish, contributed by Sultana. Other tracks I thought were good: After All, Run For It, Serenity, Touched, and Returning. The only track I actively didn't like is Magic and its bizarre narration.

I gotta wonder at the line "Catching stupid's arrows in my teeth" in Orbit of Me though. Maybe I'm missing something, but seems like it should be Cupid being referred to there.

In addition there's a bonus disc. Stopwatch Hearts is excellent and better than some of the tracks on the main disc. The remixes are all right, the Satoshi Tomiie mix is the better of the three, though the Amniotic Insomniac version sounds sorta Bjorkish.
