1. 9/11: A fresh blast to the ears and Vasquez's raspy voice takes center stage.
2. Bushwick Blues: One of my favorite songs on the album. This song has rock anthem written all over it. The song will get the blood flowing and the fist pumping.
3. Salt in the Wound: the album slows down after the two rowdy songs before this one. It fits perfectly and is a reflection on good and evil.
4. White Table: drums begin the song and are consistent throughout. This one has some dirty string guitar in it as well like a grunge guitar with a folk theme.
5. Randsom Man: Vocals with a little atmospheric music. This song shows the true range of Vasquez and his emotion bleeds through to the listener.
6. Devil Knows Your Dead: The album begins to pick back up with a simple instrument arrangement. The vocals are once again really strong.
7. Golden State: This song ramps the album back up to full speed.Read more ›
To be honest, there was nothing here that struck me as forcefully as Ode to Sunshine's first single, "Trashcan," nor nothing as quite as in-your-face raw "People C'mon," but unlike their debut, History From Below is quite the studio album, revealing more and more upon each subsequent listen. The band's growth as songwriters is quite pronounced, as a listen to a slow burner like "White Table" or the flamenco spice on "St. Francis" makes apparent.Read more ›
Agreed that it very diffrent in many ways. And for some this might be a dissappointment from "Ode to Sunshine", but this is no slump. I accually gave this album only 4 stars, but i had to see the rating go higher. Delta spirit deserves better then premature rating of an album that was only listened too for one day. That seems harsh since they're are some seriously awesome songs on here.
The first half is solid rock songs you would expect from these guys. 9/11 and bushwick blues are very "Ode" too me. Reminds me of a cooler more confident versions of "childeren". Suprising songs to me where "Salt in the wound" and "white table", this for some reason reminds me of the dodos, but its not a bad thing.
By far the best song on here for me is "Ransom Man 6: Devil Knows You're Dead", this is just a really awesome song. I can't say enough about it, just listen on repeat.
The second half of the album is so-so. I'm sure it will grow on me with more listens.
Its Delta Spirit, regarless if this is better then the last album, these guys still rock. Give it a try

Well, you can listen to the samples for yourself, so I'm not really sure how much a review is going to help your decision process here. Read morePublished on December 10, 2013 by Alix Grabowski
This band should be getting more air time. Absolutely great. Ode was my first jump into the Delta Spirit and I have not looked back once. I highly recommend this CD (and the band). Read morePublished on March 20, 2012 by Veto Twain
I had heard "Trashcan" on the radio a few years back and quite enjoyed it. What prompted me to check out this album was the use of the beautiful "Devil Knows Your Dead" over the... Read morePublished on December 6, 2011 by Will Adams
