It feels like Event 2 is 12 years of growth and fine-tuning their sounds after working with so much and growing as people. As much as I love Deltron 3030, Event 2 is looking to be better.
Just by a slight bit.
What a twist! Deltron 3030 on Letterman lol Dan's definitely got some connections http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=wd9dfbnZ-ZU In the meantime, I'll re-listen Event 2, I hope it will grow on me this time
Honestly, once familiar with the songs Del's delivery kind of makes sense. The album works, and it has grown on me from my initial listen. I think living up to The Event was going to be difficult as hell, but they managed to create something great here despite the mixed reactions to it.
God, this album is so fucking unremarkable in every way. Ludicrous overproduction, tedious skits, unnecessary guest stars by the truckload, uninteresting themes, a giant exercise in style over substance trying to live up to thirteen years of expectations and completely flying way over and way under the mark. Del's delivery is really boring compared to the music where there is almost too much going on, and the excitement and wonder of the futuristic themes of the first album are nearly lost entirely. Some songs are better than others, but on the whole this is nothing special to me at all. Forgettable, and a huge shame all round.
The new album seems more like Handsome Boy Modeling School with sci-fi just for the hell of it. I still like it. But the 'sci-fi' aspect just isn't ingrained in the DNA of the album like the first album was.
Event II is great, it is different from the first. A little less about the collapse of a world and more about some futuristic aspects brought in a humorous manner, but I like it. It is a very good album and it gets better and better with more plays. It is already my Hip-Hop AOTY.
