Finally after three albums, Bill Leeb & Rhys Fulber have admitted that Synaesthesia really is their project and that the elusive R. Deckard is none other than Chris Peterson. Of course, most people already knew this but it is nice that they finally owned up to the fact. Musically, "Ephemeral" picks up right where the last album "Desideratum" left off. As you would expect the album consists of several long tracks in the the same vein as pre "Semantic Spaces" Delerium. Sampled ethnic percussion and ambient keyboard pieces are mixed into various upbeat tribal sections as well as as a few more lulling soundscapes. On 'Intelligence Dream', ultra low bass tones are even played with that they RUMble the room when the track is played on a good stereo system. Overall a very solid release which fans of previous material and older Delerium will enjoy.
