I don't like to gush and blah blah about greatness but this band has been showing the progress since lead singer Matt Vasquez disbanded Noise Ratchet. Delta Spirit are musicians musicians. A band that can be appreciated by everyone that struggled, persevered and caught lightning in a bottle on their way to greatness.
The lead single 'California' is a pounding, driving hook ladden song prompting an ex to move on because you realize the failure in yourself to be able to do so. It's a beautiful song with layers of 'ooh ooh' chorus (come on you know I'm hooked) that will have you rolling down the windows on a cold midwest day.
The most frustrating thing in listening to the LP and lauded praise on the band is that as of yet they have not announced a Detroit show on their current tour. Bummer Dude....
Stand out tracks are 'California, 'Empty House', 'time Bomb,'Into The Darkness'.
Recommendation: Write The label and publicist GET THIS BAND here. In the meantime buy the LP, CD or the package that gives you everything. http://www.deltaspirit.net

11/21/2007 - American Ganster Movie Review Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe give their usual brilliant performances, but the movie falls a bit short. Crowe's character is given too much screen time and the masterful mind of a drug lord is not explored enough. American Gangster is a good film but you leave feeling like one of Lucas's junkies, desiring a bit more.
11/20/2007 - Zookeeper - 'Become All Things' Become All Things is a nice album of piano-bar sing alongs with deep mood swings. It will not go down as one of the best of 2007, or live up to the hype, but the songs shoud find a nice place on your IPOD
10/26/2007 - Dropkick Murphys - 'The Meanest Of Times' Despite gaining mainstream exposure on last year's soundtrack to 'The Departed' as well as singing the National Anthem (repeatedly) for The Boston Red Sox, The Dropkick Murphys haven't softened their rough edges
