Not one song on this album misses its mark. Truly a band on its way to great things!
"Trashcan," the first fully developed song on the album, is the sort of accomplishment that Delta Spirit spend the rest of the album trying to live up to. A lively rocker that propels itself on a ragtime piano melody and Vasquez's ragged voice, it wouldn't sound out of place blaring out of some desert saloon. The rhythm section is tight and the climactic choruses are what make rock great, all tinkly piano and a dirty guitar as Vasquez cathartically wails "my love is coming, I can barely hardly wait around." If you ever needed a more fitting definition of immediacy, you have one now.
Delta Spirit keeps the vigor up on following track "People C'mon," a track that relies on Vasquez's powerful vocals to support it even more so than "Trashcan", and he steps up to the plate admirably. The band shifts down a few gears on the slow strummer "House Built For Two," a song that succeeds on a beautiful piano melody and some of Vasquez's most heartfelt lyrics. You can practically picture a drunken, bearded piano man straight out of the Depression-era West belting this out to the equally drunk patrons.Read more ›
This album is also superbly recorded, revealing Matthew Vasquez voice in all its raw glory.
Turns out Delta Spirit are from California. So in my snobbery I cynically bought the album thinking thats probably the only decent song.........I stand here before you to say, I was a fool (in many ways)
How can I describe this album?....well in a few words....IT ENDS TOO SOON!
I cant remember an album that had so many instant YES moments. YES! thank good for great music moments!
This is an AMAZING Album that should be picked up straight away.
My prejudice is gone! AMAZING FROM BEGINNING TO END!
GET IT NOW!

I bought this because I heard Street Walker on YouTube. This CD does not have that same version. This one sucks (quite a bit) in comparison. Read morePublished 1 month ago by JohnD

This CD is truly one of a kind. Many different type of music here and all enjoyable. Title track reminds of mixture of The Band and CCR. Buy it!!Published on October 17, 2013 by Musictu Myear
