This album has been my favorite sound for a long time now, and in constant rotation. Most of the songs have been out in some form for about a year now, but the added new tracks round the whole thing out as a proper release. Thick keyboards and girthy basslines contrasted and complimented by melodic and haunting, almost 1980's vocal stylings. It's such a unique new sound, but reminds me of an early 80's re-imagined and reinvented, in the best way. Pulsing, pounding, atmospheric, and beautiful. Start at track 1 and let it take you somewhere -you haven't heard anything like this.

This is one of my favorite albums of the past decade. Jonathan Bates of Mellowdrone returns with a heavy, synthesizer-driven pop album showcasing his stellar vocals. There isn't one second I ever fast-forward through.

How do I love Big Black Delta, let me count the ways. I first found them through a music blog which posted "Huggin & Kissin", moved on to the EP from there, and was pleased when I heard they were putting out a full length. (The new tracks are definitely worth a second purchase)
As the other reviews mentioned, BBD is simultaneously retro and modern. The biggest influence to me is 80s synth/new wave, but the sound is updated and hard to describe- to me is like being in the basement of your favorite goth night blasting your favorite song while you're pleasantly drunk. Some of the lyrics make me roll my eyes a bit, but the music more than makes up for it. I'm a big fan of the 80s-style synth revival that seems to still be going on, but I like how BBD draws off many influences. (I especially love the Pink Floydishness of "Side of the Road") I love this album.

Some of the lyrics and content aren't exactly for polite company, but this is pop art with a heavy dose of synth. At times I'm reminded of tight alternative pop circa 1990 with updated sounds, but this is a modern take -- make no mistake.

Money Rain Down tends to stick in the head, which is a testament to the artful pop writing, but it's not an unpleasant 'stuck in my head' feeling which is a testament to the quality of the effort.

I'm certain a few of these tracks will continue to randomly pop into my head for decades even if I stop listening, but why would I?

As a man who likes all kinds of music, I found this to be something fresh and new. Hearing influences from Peter Gabriel to Kavinsky, I was looking for something different and I believe I found it

This is really a great album! Awesome electric sounds and to me kind of a mix of Pink Floyd meets Depeche mode with a dash of Nine Inch Nails grittiness. It really grows on you the more you listen to it. They have a great new sound and I love it!

Just when you think you have heard it all, Big Black Delta slaps you with this stunning CD. Mix some of the more obscure Ween tracks with Fever Ray and a dash of Lemon Jelly... Never mind. This band is too difficult to categorize. Simply an outstanding and well recorded effort. If you want to listen to something unique, look no further.

I really dig this CD. It's been in my car for a week now and I'm still not sick of it. The tracks are varied with a blend of light hearted synth pop, dark hard beats that growl and mellow moody grooves. My faves are tracks, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 & 13. This is a very unique album and a new direction for the singer, Jonathan Bates, as he began his career in 1999 in the Indy Rock band Mellowdrone. Not only has he kept up with today's sound, but he 's clearly gone a few steps forward. I'm sure we'll hear more from him soon.
