3 stars The followup to the huge hit Jesahel, Delirium opt to go towards a more commercial angle this time. They let their more pop sensibilities have the floor here, as they try to capitalize on their newfound fame. Unfortunately, Haum! lacks the magic of Jesahel, despite nods to that song with some call and response with the multi person chorus and the repetitive 'Ha--oom' chants throughout. It tries to capture the lightning in a bottle once again, but it's clear they are going after a different audience on this side. It opens with a catchy flute intro. Overall a nice follow up trying to balance their cool side with pop requirements. Will grow on you.

Side two is Movemento II (Dubbio) that starts with simple solo piano and recorder under Fossati's vocal. Harpsichord, acoustic guitars and an overwrought string outro flesh out a low key song from Dolce Acqua lp.

Anything with Fossati on it is worth getting for his unique vocal power and gifted flute technique. For Delirium fans, you probably need this. For non RPI fans, merely a curiosity.

3 stars for RPI fans, 2 stars for other prog fans.
