"In the band, we're on a journey. We're not where we're going to end up, but we're further on than where we were last year," says Delirious? guitarist Stu Garrard about his group's latest album, Mezzamorphis. "The title is a mixture of two cuts on the album: 'Metamorphis' and 'The Mezzanine Floor.' Change is the theme of the album." Here are Garrard's favorite CDs.
