Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2009 album from the acclaimed SoCal singer/songwriter, produced by Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel). Deluca's brand of Rock incorporates all of his influences including Soul, Folk and Blues. His previous album, I Trust You To Kill Me, garnered him plenty of airplay, both over the airwaves and on the internet. With Mercy, Deluca is prepared to take that next step: world domination. 11 tracks including the title track performed with Britpopsters Keane.

About the Artist

"Rocco has his feet on the ground and his eyes to the sky," (Daniel Lanois).

Rocco DeLuca uses a delicate falsetto, resonator guitar, and incisive, questioning lyrics to deliver his second album, Mercy. Rocco also had the help of five-time Grammy-winning producer Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel) to draw upon.

Mercy covers vast emotional terrain, from the Melancholy "Junky Valentine," to the explosive "Save Yourself". The title track "Mercy", is an ambient, piano driven masterpiece featuring a guest performance by UK trio Keane. These twists and turns build, layer upon layer, with haunted intricacy.

DeLuca and Lanois formed their bond after the producer caught a last minute performance at L.A. club Spaceland in late 2007. Following their endless touring, he and drummer Ryan Carman jumped at the chance to blow off steam, and fill an open slot on a hometown bill. "I had my dobro, and Ryan brought a little kick drum, and we played all the material that I'd been writing over the last few months." Lanois - who, unbeknownst to DeLuca, had been listening intently from the front row - beckoned him over to the back bar, and suggested they work together. "I was deeply honored." DeLuca, praised by Rolling Stone for displaying "echoes of Neil Young, Robert Plant, Jeff Buckley and Pearl Jam" early in his career; Instantly recognizable singing; a distinctive instrumental style; and an original songwriting voice. Filter magazine live review wrote, "Walking a fine line between American revival and commercial success... You'd be hard pressed to find any other one-time VH1 staple taking stage only adorned with Dobro guitar and glass slide in hand...it wasn't until midway through the take that the crowd remembered they were at a rock show; and that one man could provide such extremities in the most intimate of settings." DeLuca was influenced by the likes of Son House, Pink Floyd and singers including Billy Holliday and Mahalia Jackson. "I went into this record with a clear idea," he insists. He'd had three years of non-stop touring in support of his acclaimed debut, I Trust You To Kill Me, to refine his vision for his second record. "Lyrically, philosophically, and musically, I'm essentially the same person I was when I was thirteen years old," he admits. "I still get excited and inspired by sounds, language, and people, but learning how to articulate them was something I had to work on." "For the first time, I've come to realize the music in my head."

It's not everyday that you see a dobro and a glass slider as the foundation for a rock act. Rocco DeLuca is a unique artist - a true artist. Rocco is not a manufactured act marketed to the top of the charts. He is a musician who is able to translate what is happening inside himself for the outside world. He seems to be able to soak up experiences, people, feelings and keep them with him. He constantly scribbles down lyrics, words and ideas whether he is touring and traveling or at home. We as listeners are the lucky recipients of the finished product that began with those scribbled notes. Mercy is a haunting and beautiful album. Mercy is Rocco at a new level.

The pairing of Rocco DeLuca and Daniel Lanois is magic. Daniel, as a highly talented artist, songwriter and producer (who has produced U2, Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris and many others) is a perfect fit for Rocco. This has been a true collaboration and his influence on the outcome of the project is apparent. The atmospheric sounds and experimentation are evident. Daniel also plays on the album and the introduction of another guitar, keyboards and other sounds are welcome additions.

Rocco is able to rock as well as mesmerize with very delicate sounds. I didn't think I could like "I Trust You to Kill Me" more, but this version is truly fantastic. The collaboration with Keane on "Mercy" the title track is a nice blend of both artists. "The Painting" is exquisite. I believe "Nightingale" is a masterpiece in it's purity and simplicity. The groove on "Any Man" is one of the best I've ever heard. The experimentation with the Icelandic voice in "Lilja" is creative. The explosiveness of "Bright Lights" makes it a great opener to a concert - releasing the pent up energy of waiting for the band.

This album is absolutely amazing. Rocco has given songwriting at its best. Not many artists around can pull off an album quite this amazing anymore. The Dobro is captivating, and hearing one these days when it isn't in bluegrass music is refreshing. (Huge fan of bluegrass by the way!haha) Not only that, but hearing the banjo in Lilja is just as refreshing.
I would recommend this album to anyone who wants true artistry.
It's an absolutely amazing album. There aren't many other words for it than that.

Why is the title track so lame? The live version(s) in the documentary film of the same name are heavy and awesome. This one is just limp.

The rest of the album is good; though, I'd have to say I like the debut album better. There is a definite improvement in production quality and the songwriting is distinctive and interesting.

I just want a heavier, studio cut of "I Trust You to Kill Me".

'save yourself' is not indicative of the overall sound of 'mercy'. and personally, i'm glad.

a vast majority of the tunes are down-tempo, ambient, moody, and beautiful. perhaps this is due to the potent production stylings of daniel lanois. either way, deluca's vocals are certainly a focus for this recording. the instrumental arrangements sound large and lush. it's apparent that deluca was more concerned with creative evolution than simply constructing a commercially-viable sophomore record.

i would certainly recommend 'mercy' to those who enjoy challenging, albeit aesthetically pleasant, singer-songwriter faire. i'd look elsewhere if you are searching for another 'colorful'. 'mercy' is above and beyond that.

This CD is pure beauty for me. Rocco DeLuca poured all his heart and soul into this album, and you can hear this in his haunted voice and an amazing sound. Wonderful music, that will stick with you for a long time. Each time I listen to the tracks, I discover a new musical layer I hadn't noticed before. The lyrics are very poetic and sometimes mysterious, so they make you think a lot.

E.g. the titel track MERCY opens with a tender piano and string intro, then Rocco's voice is calm and longing for inner peace, and the guys from KEANE do a good job to create a great title song. To me, it's a song where someone tries to make peace with past and present, to have a future.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. And don't miss a show when Rocco comes to your town. KILLER LIVE SHOWS!!

Rocco's follow up to 2006's album I Trust You To Kill Me is a horse of a different color but is still a great album thats full of the sounds and song writing we've come to expect from Rocco. Some of my favs from this album are Lilsa, When you learn to Sing, and - the amazingly done - Nightingale.
Like i mentioned earlier this album isnt a copy of ITYTKM its a change of direction but Rocco still manages to draw you in with his words, voice, and ever trusty dobro.
Yes i recommend the album but i'd like to warn ppl that its not a "commercial album" by any means - Its more than that - its a welcomed growth of an artist and his sound.

this albums not as rocky as "i trust you to kill me." but it's amazing. a few of the tracks have an almost damien rice feel in the voice.

these tracks are killer though- track number two "i trust you to kill me." is absolutely solid. track five and nine have the same feel - and i think it's incredible. track six and seven also have a little bit of the same vibe going on- and track one "mercy" inspired my next tattoo.

excellent album. five stars.
