Poe: The Delirious Eye is a spoken-word album inspired by the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe. Mesmerizing soundscapes accompany the poetic dialog throughout the 13 tracks. A rich mix of swirling melodies, electronic embellishments, and dreamy sequences encompass avant-garde, experimental, and instrumental radiance. These storytelling poetics should be fascinating for anyone interested in verses set to music. The spoken-word delivery by Louis Biggie is pensive and exquisitely emotive, encompassing enraptured, brooding, and cinematic tones that rise to apogees of aural delight.

Amidst the commanding oral performance, the music expresses an almost cinematic presence, blending mystery and magic with moments of shock, pathos, and ecstasy. Washes of sound pulsate in and out with crystalline qualities of atmospheric brilliance; the tonalities of music and voice blend together with marvelous precision, creating enchantments. Atmospheric drones and symphonic strings with sensitive piano inclusions, chimes, and other evocative abstractions express strange, ineffable feelings. Dark, brooding meditations create uncanny moods, while the sparkling piano keys and soaring washes create dreamlike effects, amid swirling strangenesses of metallic magnificence. The ringing tones, strings, and long washes culminate into an epiphany of sound which leaves a lasting impression after each track.

Poe: The Delirious Eye is a great album for the poetically-minded connoisseur.

About the Author
Author Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1848) transformed the American literary landscape with his innovations in the short story genre and his haunting lyrical poetry, and he is credited with inventing American gothic horror and detective fiction. He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic. In 1845 the publication of his most famous poem, “The Raven,” brought him national fame.
