I have not once heard a concept album this meaningful and far ahead of its competitors. As you may know this is another project headed by Dan The Automator and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien. Del takes care of the lyrics and concept of the album while DTA makes most beats and atmospheres. Each tracks flows impressively to the next almost to the point that you would not want to listen to only part of the album.

The lyrics throughout this album are its high point. Its the story of Deltron Zero's battle against a totalitarian government and large corporations. During this journey he is also fighting for the Galactic Rhyme Federation Champion title. This is all obviously taking place in the year 3030 and reflect what our world may become if people do not stand up and do something about it. Now don't get me wrong, this is not just somehting to listen to for the right message and some moving material but also contains a great (as usual from Del) flow and even more incredible beats, samples.

Dan the Automator has done probably his best job to date creating a otherworldly futuristic feel to the beats and samples. Each track probably uses 30 different clips or sound effects to create a scene around the lyrics. If your just sitting down quickly to listen to a song or two this is probably not the album you should be listening to. I wont recommend any individual tracks because I really believe it should be heard as one. Anyone into hip hop or that likes everything DTA or Del has created should most definitely give this a lesson, as it will not disappoint.

I've spoken before of my Deltron love. And I absolutely agree, anyone giving them a serious chance should listen to an album in it's entirety. This truly is one of those rare finds that's not just music but an experience.

I actually had the Deltron 3030 instrumentals long before I even heard the real album. It kinda' threw me off a bit when i finally heard it. I still prefer the instrumental album.
