Editorial Reviews

Deltron 3030 is composed of a trinity of alt-rap all-stars: Master lyricist Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, superproducer Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura and virtuoso turntablist DJ Kid Koala. Individually, they stand at the top of their respective musical disciplines; together, on the eponymous Deltron 3030, they warped space, bent time, transcended genre and blew minds, creating an album that still stands today as one of the most important records in the annals of underground hiphop.

Now, over a decade later, they re finally releasing the long-awaited follow-up to their debut an album titled Deltron 3030: Event II. "This time, the album has a specific story," says Del. "The Deltron world has gone too far with technology. Everything's destroyed, and you just see the remnants of our technology. The streets are run by criminals, the police are outnumbered and outgunned, and we're like pirates, running rogue, doing what we do to survive. That's the scene of it. We're trying to be as literary as possible while dealing with a musical format. I don't know if you could even categorize this as a hip hop album - it's more like a rock opera, but using rap."

He notes that the words, music and narrative have been deliberately chosen to put listeners into a specific emotional state. "This record took 13 years, and the whole time fans are telling us we better come out with Deltron right now - quit teasing me," laughs Del. "Well, this is beyond a regular album. Because I would say, me, Dan and Koala, we aren't limited by what other rap groups do - we're musicians first. I studied music theory for ten years. Dan and Koala been learning music since they were kids. We're bringing it all together here, everything, and the fans, the critics, they all going to be surprised by what we got. You'll see."

Despite the years of hype in the underground hip hop community, Event II didn't even catch my periphery until last week. I discovered Event II, and today's release day, while listening to the Deltron 3030 self titled album for the gazillionth time, as the latter is just magnificent! With as much enthusiasm for the release of Event II as for the series finale of Breaking Bad, I read everything I could about Event II last week, checked the MP3 availability on Amazon.com multiple times over the weekend, and ultimately bought it this morning at lunch. I have listened to the new album twice now from beginning to end, and my first impression is: I like Event II, but not as much as Deltron 3030, and not for the same reasons I love the self-titled album. I think Event II has the same artistic spirit, technical prowess, and high production quality as Deltron 3030's first album (maybe higher production quality?), and I like the cameos by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Cross, Amber Tamblyn, etc. My first impression, however, also tells me Event II doesn't have the same bold-sounding, attention-grabbing instrumentals and lyrics as Deltron 3030. What I remember most from Deltron 3030 are the defiant tones of Del's voice, and the corresponding lyrics--e.g. Virus--whereas with Event II, the lyrics and instrumentals seemed to blend together more. I have given Event II four stars, because it is still enjoyable to play. With Deltron 3030's first album, it took me months (really years) to fully appreciate (and anticipate) the melding of great lyrics, tracks, and samples; and I suspect the same will be true with Event II.

Deltron 3030 came out more than a decade ago and has since been regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever created. This followup album is a fantastic sequel, taking place ten years after its predecessor in the year 3040. If you're a fan of the first and you dig vinyl, I'd suggest buying this.

Let me start off by saying I love this album, and I can't count the number of times I've already listened to it. That said, this album suffers 2 problems:

1) It was impossible to live up to all of the hype.
2) While this is a solid performer, the first Deltron 3030 album was arguably better.

I actually really like the skits on this one. They're humorous and don't feel out of place even. Some of these songs will get themselves stuck in your head for quite some time. It's definitely worth adding to your collection if you like Del.

Recommended/favourite tracks include:
* Pay the Price
* Look Across the Sky
* My Only Love
* City Rising from the Ashes
* Do You Remember

I read a bit on Wikipedia about this album because, frankly, I was wondering what the hell took them so long to follow up 3030 which still lives in my music collection as possibly my favorite hip hop album of all time... because I'm nerdy like that. Well, what I learned kind of jives with how the album sounds: basically, all the beats, samples, etc have been done for years and it was up to Del to record the raps. Sometimes really taking your time makes sure you get it just right. In this case, it feels more like he was just pathologically uninspired.

So much so in fact that most of the tracks would be better WITHOUT Del. As much as it pains me to say it, he lost his touch completely for this album. It feels like he is just perfunctorily adding sciency raps, and piling them on top of each other in ways that may or may not make sense. His flow doesn't sound very natural either... very much like he added it on to music that was already there instead of making it at the same time as the music and trying to attune the two.

Ok, not all of it is completely bad. Some of the songs are semi sort of enjoyable. But there is very little memorable material here. Maybe I set myself up for disappointment if I was expecting 3030 all over again. The raw materials were all there because the production is top notch. But I really think Del could and should have done better.

I'm a fan of Del since early 2000's and his last album under 3030 was a hip hop subculture classic. It's lyrical realness in the sense of the workings of the world, with a space age flare only able to be accomplished from a homosapien so funky as Del. With this pressure to live up too, he definately delivered on this new album with more skillful de-masquerading of the situations we livin in on the REAL, no beauty rhymes. Automater's beats are hella sick AGAIN and the instrumentals on this album are a sweet bonus DJ's.

I mean, what else do I need to say. It was worth it in every way. Get edjumacated man

First off let me start by saying that I never expected it to live up to, or be better than the Deltron 3030. The first one as it was and always will be one of a kind and possibly the greatest hip hop album of all time. I think that, for me at least Deltron 3030 came out at just the right time. It was in the midst of my rave days, which seems like a long time ago now, so there were many factors which influenced my love of the first album. One being copious amounts of greenery. From the first time I listened to Deltron 3030 I was in love with the creative sci fi storytelling and the sick beats although somewhat dreary at times, It set the mood for Del's masterful lyrics in a world gone crazy. Enough about Deltron 3030 on to Event 2.
The first couple of times I listened to Event 2 I thought it was good with a couple of catchy songs and some surprise guest who I never thought I would hear on the album. After spending more time letting the album really sink in I thoroughly enjoy it. Automator returns with some creative beats and Del is back with some bad a^^ lyrics. It is a good thing that Del and Automator came back because the world is in shambles yet again and we needed our hero's to come and save mankind.
Point of the story if you love Del's unique lyrics as well as Automator's sick beats then you will enjoy this album too. Not as good as Deltron 3030 but Event 2 is still an amazing album.
