4.0Overall Score
Reader Rating 2 Votes

Ellie Goulding is one of the biggest players in the pop industry and there’s no way that she was about to let anyone down with her new album Delirium. Luckily for Goulding fans we’re pretty sure that after listening through this album that she won’t be going out of the spotlight anytime soon!

Ellie Goulding has had a truly incredible career so far and it’s been honestly intriguing to watch her as an artist and person grow in front of our eyes. Ellie, who was somewhat timid in her early days and far more indie than she is today still had that special star factor that was undeniable even back then. The blonde beauty has gone from a darker place in her younger days to much brighter, happier times in recent years and although a lot of her recent singles have been uptempo feel good tracks with Calvin Harris, there’s a new found maturity and depth on this album that was actually rather unexpected from her.

Ellie Goulding has returned to having a little more depth, showcasing more vulnerability and she freely experiments with many genres on this album. Don’t worry though, you won’t be disappointed as the album still remains a major win for those who are fans of her club style pop radio hits. There’s somewhat of a futuristic idea of where Ellie Goulding might be seeing herself going in the coming years, which might transcend the clubs and airwaves.

With a huge 22 tracks on Delirium it can be quite overwhelming and intimidating for fans to tell apart which songs will become her next big track. That said with patience and curiosity after two or three listens from start to finish many will find their favourites. There’s many potentially commercial releases on here and it will be interesting to see what direction Ellie Goulding and her team will go from here.
