More About Delirious
MARTIN SMITH, STU G., JON THATCHER, TIM JUPP and STEW SMITH are DELIRIOUS?, the internationally-loved rock/worship band from Littlehampton, England. From their start as the worship band for a youth outreach called Cutting Edge to their chart-topping successes that have brought messages of personal transformation and heartfelt relationship with Jesus to the masses, Delirious? has become the leader of a worldwide worship movement. Their songs include I Could Sing of Your Love Forever, Deeper and Lord, You Have My Heart.
Reviews - What do customers think about Cutting Edge?
the weak made strong Dec 31, 2006
In 1995 I sat at a dinner table in Oxford and chatted with the young American at my side. He was the manager of a new band called 'Delirious?', he explained. They were going to be the next big thing, perhaps the next U2. He earnestly implored me to watch for them, I would not be disappointed.
The band's name did not seem promising and the guy clearly had an interest in promoting his project. I didn't take him too seriously.
A decade later and with many Delirious cds on my shelf, I smile to recall this memory.
CUTTING EDGE was in fact the first name of the band. To appreciate this CD, you've got to enter the narrative of the insert and appreciate the band as a spiritual and musical phenomenon that seemed in the mid-90s as much a surprise to the musicians, managers, and hangers-on as anyone else. The United Kingdom is often referred to these days as 'post-Christian', a dismissive adjective that is overstated but, sadly, contains much more truth than one could wish.
The Delirious? phenomenon is, perhaps as much as anything else, audible testimony to the fact that the Lord does not easily abandon a nation. Dry bones are unpromising material, the prophet Ezekiel would concede, but when breathed upon by the Lord's spirit are capable of becoming a mighty army.
Such rhetoric, with its palpable biblical allusiveness, is part and parcel of the Delirious? package.
Before anything else, these tracks give us worship songs. Those looking for highly-produced, densely-packed, expertly-scored music like that of, say, Steven Curtis Chapman, are likely to walk away from this double-cd package disappointed and a bit glazed over.
Delirious? was and is a work in progress. Classic, simple rock progressions ('Singer's Song) give way to acoustic reflectiveness ('Lord, You Have My Heart'). Yet one never loses the sense that Delirious? is in some essential sense a band up on a stage. Leading worship. The recording studio came later and, one might sense, only half welcomed.
This reviewer lived for many years in Costa Rica, where in our church we often sang Delirious? songs in Spanish. Presumably, few of us knew the source.
Although much of Delirous?' output has not weathered as well as I had hoped, I am still deeply moved--as I was upon first hearings some years back--by the band's tempered, chastened side, a tonality that seems to move them consistently towards the Cross of Christ as their ground zero. This part of their artistic bandwidth is best appreciated via 'The Prophet Song' and others that I'll excerpt below:
'The Prophet Song':
'I hear the words of the prophets I love to sing with the angels I love to hear children praying I love to see weak made strong But most of all I love to hear the voice of God'.
With these lyrics, Martin's voice reminds us of what is central to our shared live of faith and what is, if not peripheral, then at least not indispensable.
Then one wonders about the biography behind a song that I have sung alone in tears:
'Find me in the river Find me on my knees I've walked against the water Now I'm waiting, if you please
We've longed to see the roses But never felt the thorns And brought our pretty crowns But never paid me the price ...
We didn't count on suffering We didn't count on pain But if the blessing's in the valley Then in the river I will wait'
This pensive, profoundly grown-up offering seems to co-exist effortlessly beside the raucous and grin-making 'I Found Jesus!'. Indeed, it is the very fact that the men of Delirious? have chosen to grow up in front of us and out loud that accounts for a large portion of the reservoir of affection that one feels for them as human beings and appreciation for the music they have so generously handed over to all who choose to listen.
One of the Best Christian Bands Sep 13, 2005
I had listened to more current Delirious music and liked it. My wife had ordered this CD and gave it to my daughter. It sat around for awhile. She pulled it out the other day, started playing it and I went, "I didn't know we had this, this is great stuff!" When Delirious was a young band, (Known as "Cutting Edge" back then), they were more centered on worship type of music. Not as heavy on the metal, more string guitar stuff, but very good. It has some of their all time classics, "I could sing of Your love forever" and "Did you hear the mountains tremble?" Many others you can sing to in the car and worship Jesus. I highly, highly recommend this CD!
this is what it's about Mar 31, 2002
Not much to say, except that this is an album to get. It will have some songs that are familiar to most, and many that aren't. But that's the beauty of it. Martin Smith writes well, and expresses the feelings of his heart. He loves God, and desires nothing but to chase after Him. Such a yearning is what worship is about.
Awesome Modern Christian Worship Band May 8, 2001
Simply put, this album is a great example of a modern worship band's ability to make great music. I have spent several years searching for Christian bands that can play music that appeals to me. Raised on alternative rock music, for years I considered Christian music weak. Delirious is one of the bands that has changed my mind.
I really like this album because it has so many strong songs, and a wide range of music from the band. I do not like every single song on both discs, but I am very impressed with the overall album. Songs like "I found Jesus", "The Happy Song", "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever", and "What is this thing called love?" really opened my eyes about modern Christian music.
I highly recommend this album to any Deliriuous fan, or anyone looking for a Christian band that is making great music these days. If you have never bought a Christian album before, take a chance with this one. It just may surprise you.
Passionate Worship May 3, 2001
The Cutting Edge CD's represent probably the best worship music produced by Delirious right at the beginning of their life as a band. The CD has joyous songs of celebration like the Happy Song, I've Found Jesus and Louder than the Radio as well as intense songs like Obsession. The songs on these CDs are packed with energy and emotion. One of the best CD sets I've ever bought.
