  • Summary: Mike Patton (Faith No More) returns for his third studio album (which consists of a single, 74-minute song!) with his more experimental outfit Fantomas.

  1. Positive: 7 out of 11
  2. Negative: 2 out of 11
  1. I don’t see it as a release you can draw much from through repeated listening, but it’s a brave and powerful trip nonetheless.
  2. 80
    Impressively pretentious, and brilliantly executed. [Dec 2003, p.126]
  3. Makes Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare sound like Cats in comparison.
  4. [Delirium] is hardly the kind of record that will be everyone’s bag, but there is so much variety and so much imagination packed into it that we find ourselves recommending it despite ourselves.
  5. Aside from [a] 20-minute stretch, though, Delìrium Còrdia holds up just fine as a suitably unwieldy, adventurous, patched-together series of instrumental bridges with no chorus to reach.
  6. On one hand, it's maddening, especially when the band lapses into twenty-two minutes of near silence. But Cordia demands repeated listens, if only to hear the freakish wonder that is Mike Patton's voice.
  7. Wretched. [Dec 2003, p.124]
