4 stars Through the revolving door of Mekong Delta comes a new line up and a singer that can do the songs justice, now, if only Ralf Hubert would relent and get a production that is clear and listenable.

This is MD's first album in over ten years and as per usual it's a love it or hate it effort. Underneath the wierd production, Uli Kusch plays like a maniac on the drums and Peter Sjoberg crunches away impressively with the manic riffing on the guitars. As I said Leo Szpigiel is probably the best vocalist this band has had. That said, 'catchy' is not what MD is about....

Whilst the sounds, the mix, whatever it is, seems to be a bit of a statement, I can't help but think it has ruined what is a quality album that could have been a much better. The best in my opinion since the Music of Erich Zann. 3.5 for me, rated at 4 because it deserves more than its lowly rating on the PA site.
