Product Description

US version includes a previous hit of hers 'Born to Try' in favor of the International track, 'The Guardian'. Third full length album from Australia's Pop princess, following up two multiplatinum smash hits before it. The sessions were recorded by a variety of world-class producers and writers that included John Shanks (Kelly Clarkson, Backstreet Boys), Stuart Crichton (Sugababes, Kylie Minogue), Marius DeVries (Rufus Wainwright, Madonna, U2), Steve Mac (Westlife, Boyzone) and Steve Kipner (Christina Aguilera, Natasha Bedingfield). Goodrem's musical progression on this outing incorporates electronic elements and reggae beats, stretching her stylistic prowess. Delta marks the return of a unique and talented artist with renewed vitality and energy. 12 tracks including the single 'In This Life'. Columbia.

From the Artist

"This album has strong themes about going through hard times but instead of being a victim standing up and being counted. It's good to focus on what life has to offer, find things that mean something to you. It's pop music. It's meant to be fun, magic, something you can relate to."

"Hard times are universal. Good times are universal. I've learned how powerful music can be to people, how you just want to get lost in music. That's a really special connection with people that isn't disposable. I like the idea of starting in America with a clean slate - I'm looking forward to singing my heart out."

Delta Goodrem is a great singer with a beautiful voice. The songs on this album which I enjoyed the most were the ones that allowed her voice to shine.

My favorite songs on the album are Believe Again, In This Life, Angels In the Room and Possessionless.

The lyrics to Believe Again talk about faith in love being restored and a heart healed. This Life tells of being put on this earth to find our one true love and finding that true love. Angels In The Room talks about how despite all the wrong turns love is found and it must have been Angles in the room that allowed this love to happen. Possessionless talks about being totally open with the one you love.

God Laughs, Woman and I Can't Break It To My Heart are also good songs but the lyrics take on tough issues. God Laughs talks about how bad things can unexpectedly happen so be prepared. Woman talks about a woman wanting more from her love. I Can't Break It To My Heart talks about being afraid to acknowledge that love may be lost.

I only found out after listening to this cd that Delta won a battle with cancer. This explains the serious tone in some of her songs. It also explains the theme of overcoming obstacles in many of the songs as well.

Delta's amazing voice and the positive lyrics make me want to listen to this album again and again. I look forward to her next album.

Delta Goodrem's third full-length release is as infectious as it is different. The album, titled simply 'Delta' marks a departure from the style of her two previous releases 'Innocent Eyes' and 'Mistaken Identity.' Avid Delta fans will notice a great contrast to these previous works.

The instrumentation is broad and diverse. Where Delta's impressive piano playing has stood center stage in much of her previous work, in this release it is present but somehow muted. Filling the space left behind is an array of electronic instruments, percussion, and a heavier presence of guitar. The sound spaces alternate between close and dry, and sweeping, ambient, reverb-friendly joy.

But the instrumentation is not all that's changed. As if to complete the transformation, Delta is clearly taking chances with her musical style. Don't worry, there are plenty of traditional Delta-style ballads on this album, but she flirts with R&B hip-hop and reggae-esque influences on the song 'You Will Only Break My Heart.' The song 'Woman' could almost be country, and 'Possessionless' is certainly Delta's most technically interesting 'pop' song to present.

The album's structure is also pleasantly cohesive. Opening with the stunningly beautiful ''Believe Again,' (of which there must certainly be numerous remixes forthcoming) the track list flows through the first single, 'In This Life' into increasingly adventurous musical territory. The second half of the album tames a bit as it moves through moody slower-tempo ballads before picking up again with the impeccable 'Brave Face.' The album finishes strong with the comparatively stripped down 'Angels In The Room.

Delta Goodrem reminds me of a young, modern Celine Dion. This album is amazing, and her voice is so beautiful. At such a young age, she has made a masterpiece.

Believe Again will just stay in your head for hours, it's so lyrically gorgeous and overall, I think that it is one of her best songs, along with Lost Without You.

She's original, and I like every song on this album.

There are people out there who nit-pick at perfection, who think it makes them seem 'cool'....and people who think they are qualified and worthy to leave actual reviews like some kind of critic on NME...Giving a breakdown of each track on the, and they so obviously have no idea what they are talking about!


Buy the album, hand on my heart, it really is great.

I could be far more enthusiastic about Delta Goodrem if she had a more unique style all her own. From the first track of this CD on, I couldn't shake the feeling that she was trying to become a Celine Dion/Madonna hybrid. She definitely has the pipes, but a look at the notes for this album gives me a hint at where it goes wrong. To quote... "the music on Delta was made with the assistance of a world-class collection of producers that include John Shanks (Kelly Clarkson), Marius DeVries (Madonna, U2) and Steve Kipner's team (Christina Aguilera, Natasha Bedingfield)." That's far too much "slick production" that renders a commercially pleasant but unfulfilling and ultimately forgettable listening experience.

It's not a bad effort, but when you listen closely to Delta's lyrics you can't help but get the feeling that these guys just weren't taking her seriously. Her song writing talent is solid, but the CD is over wrought with lush strings and synthesized techno beats.

I wouldn't suggest that you give up on Delta, not by a long shot. But I would hope that on her next album she takes a little more control and not listen to so many other voices. She's young and promising, and the geniuses that built their reputations carrying the water and sliding the buttons for other singers need to realize that she can be special on her own.
