Deltron 3030 Deltron 3030 - Sealed UK CD album
Hip-hop confabulations don't come much more forward-thinking than this. Working from solid atomic principles, Deltron 3030 takes one producer, one MC, and one DJ and throws them beyond Futurama. Dan the Automator (one of the founders of the Handsome Boy Modeling School and administrator of Dr. Octagon's porno hospital) reinvents himself as the Cantankerous Captain Aptos and teams up with Deltron Zero (a.k.a. Hieroglyphics crew member Del tha Funky Homosapien) and Skiznod the Boy Wonder (bucky turntablist Kid Koala). Between the radio ads for future-funked, rap jams, and camouflaged cameos (by the likes of Prince Paul, a castrato Damon Albarn, MC Paul Barman and his Upper West Side doppelgänger Sean Lennon), the Deltron crew advise you to upgrade your brain to avoid getting sucked into the time virus. ("Ugrade your gray matter," they chant, "'cause one day it may matter.") The thematic opener, "3030," sounds like a beat-driven David Lean movie that slipped into the DJ's fingers with 31st-century rhythm stutters and scratches. Automator ping-pongs loops as rousing choral parts swell with space pride. "Things You Can Do" riffs off mod rock while a harpsichord hack and Sean Lennon drops feature on the sickly sweet mental apocalypse of "Memory Loss." Over its 21 tracks, Deltron 3030 erases the errors of this rap era in favor of hip-hop's future fathers. --Chris Campion

I'm not sure if the varying vinyl colors is intentional or another indicator of manufacturer's defect.
I haven't returned my second copy yet, haven't decided whether I'm willing to tolerate the skipping...it is a great album after all.
If you like wordplay, novel ideas in songs and quality rap then this album is for you. If you like booty shakin dance rap or thug rap then it might not be a good fit. The beats in the background are novel and interesting (I swear I think one came from The Nightmare Before Christmas!). The topics are fresh. The lyrics have meaning. Good stuff that I highly recommend.
Honestly if your not relaxed enough to hear out the words spoken and like i said imagine the world he speaks of then your losing out. You simply wont understand the album. Like the title says.... Its a lyrical journey into the year 3030... Sit back.. chill out by any means... and enjoy....
Still, I personally think that everyone who listens to hip hop should give this disc a spin and join the party. Now I know that's not how it will be, though, cause lots of people will think there are too many skits, some will think that the words are no good, and other folks won't like the way Deltron Z (or Del tha Funkee Homo Sapien, whatever) rhymes. Maybe some folks won't like the "positive conTACT!" overdub on Positive Contact. (Well, actually, I don't like that particular element myself.) But I think that anyone who comes to this looking at it as, album-oriented hip hop, will be pretty impressed. I sure was.
All in all, this is the best thing I heard in 2000 and I look forward to listening to it in 2001, 2002, 2003...
