Southern USA collides with South-western Canada in this joint offering for all the world to appreciate, in which the ethereal vocals of Sixpence None The Richer's Leigh Nash intertwine and weave across Delerium's ambient landscapes, crafting a sound not dissimilar to Zero 7, particularly on the instrumental outings of the album. After previously working with Leigh under their own moniker on a couple of occasions, the Vancouverites reunite with the Texan songstress to forge Fauxliage. It's a separate side project for both the trance icons and Ms Nash, with the album largely influenced by the breakup of her marriage earlier in the year. This makes it a lyrically dark effort, although often with melodically optimistic overtones. Leigh's voice is at its other-worldly best and combined with the tranquil melodies, it captivates the ears. Undoubtedly, the tour de force of the album is "Let It Go" with insightful lyrics - "Every night I drive away from you/I see the mountains I have yet to move/I can't change you and you sure can't change me" - capturing the desperate plight of her love in a nutshell, backed up by some Spice Girls-esque harmonies. The album artwork's not bad either.
