Ellie Goulding’s Delirium is A Go-To Pop Album for A Whirlwind of Fun, Positivity, Light, Love, with a Touch of Euphoria.

Delirium is one of those albums that is just never going to be irrelevant, it just screams to play it no matter the passing of time when you see that sky blue and her wind embracing stance underneath all that fur. Additionally, considering how beautiful Ellie Goulding’s vocals are along with that, with or without the productional boost, they soar, and just sound so angelic with a touch of an R&B resonating feminine type of handsomeness that many people may identify as super distinctive but there’s something understating about that adjective when it comes to Ellie. Ellie Goulding can get you right in the heart affecting you right while you’re in the middle of dancing through the airy beats & pop songs and through the whirlwind of how the album burns through Ellie Goulding’s version of epic ‘Pop’. I guess her inexperience in this album would come from the fact that she is in new territory with Delirium genre wise as she’s abandoned her previous niche similar to Taylor Swift shifting from the Country style, “I know there’s nothing I can do to make you stay, the one thing I know that will always remain is the aftertaste.” In this line that precedes the opening track “Aftertaste” where Ellie Goulding is declaring her inability to control others loyalty through the development and unexpected turns she decides to take, while also signifying that the grounds in which she progresses and rises from will always remain as an ‘Aftertaste.’ This is something that I just love coming right out the gate of the album because it makes me feel powerful, unapologetic, and like I’m growing. I really believe she achieved it the songs all have an absolute absorbable message that sticks with me that I live through the lens of like a significant prescription in the pair of glasses of reality whether its life, love, and/ or even your artful craft. For instance, like the fifteenth track “Devotion” that is a self-explanatory title yet is so euphoric & resembles folk and techno club but evokes love and strength at the same time. The effort of the production that went into the creativity that Delirium unleashes for me has always been like an enchanted cup of healing herbal flowers like melodic waves that choreographically mix, swish and swirling right down.
