Deliverance ~ River Disturbance

Post by My Awesome Timothy on Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:52 am

I completely overlooked this album back in the day, didn't like the change in direction musically but have been listening to this many times recently.  WOW!!! This album smokes, I don't know if my tastes have changed but I'm finally really enjoying this album.  My favourite song from the album is the title track.

While moody and even contains rap style vocals, it is a solid listen.  That's what I liked about this era of Deliverance.  The music was heavy but evoked different emotional response.  To me, their speed metal days just sound angry and nothing else.  That worked when I was young, but I prefer a bit more emotion.  I would be more excited about new Deliverance material if it were in the "Stay Of Execution" through "Camelot" styles.

I didn't mind some of the changes, I love Stay and Learn has some good stuff but this one never grabbed me much. Belltown and River Disturbance are the only songs I really enjoy.

The only tracks I care about is River Disturbance and Beltown, as well. But I only listen to this album a couple of times as this is my least favorite Deliverance album. Even Assimilation is better.

If not for the programmed drums, "Assimilation" would have been amazing.

I'd love to hear Assimilation rerecorded.

I'd just love to hear the drums redone and released as is.  I liked all the electronic noise with it as percussion fills.  It worked.

Didn't like this one as much when it first came out but as the years have worn on, it's become one of my favorites. Love the reissue with the extra track on it and the better cover artwork.

How anyone can be unmoved by U Still Smile is beyond me.  That song is so packed with emotion, it has had me on the verge of tears before...

"Assimilation" is all live drums... those aren't programmed...

However, the demos were all programmed... But the actual album is Jim Calvert on drums on a live drum kit...

Funny thing, I did ask him to play like a drum machine... LOL...

I still really like Assimilation, Jimmy...I know you once said you didn't think it turned out as well as planned, but I
think it's great...

Regarding River Disturbance - I love some of the tracks on this - Belltown, After I fell, River Disturbance, Now and Then, and Speed of Light...

I'm a fan of the speed metal and more progressive, groove side etc... and being a big electronica fan love the Fearful Symmetry stuff..... It's why I also follow Klayton from Celldweller quite a bit - His new Circle of Dust album Machines of our Disgrace is fantastic, so is his retro synth project - Scandroid.

Artie... Thank you Bro... 

Free Range... Thanks for the props on Assimilation... I wish it would've been done differently, but oh well... :-)

I love Klayton as well... CoD is really incredible!!!

and to My Awesome Timothy... Thanks for starting this thread with that thought... Means more than you can know...  I have always considered River to be my Magnum Opus... I truly love that album, all but "A Little Sleep"... That was a favor to my buds in 12th Tribe... They had been dropped from their label and wanted some needed attention by doing a collaberotive effort... But its a song out of place, for me at least...

JPBII-

Had to pull this out again just to see if my opinion has changed. I will add Speed of Light to songs I enjoy and somehow You Still Smile reminds me of Queensryche this time around so that's four songs i'm liking and of course the Steve Taylor cover makes me smile.

I never knew that.  It sounds so much like a machine that I've always believed it to be.  There are little drum fills and rolls.  That usually was a good indication on any album that a machine had been used back in those days.

Cool to know!

River Disturbance is my fave D album by far.  I love the thrash D of the early days (and soon to be recent days), but River is what I consider Deliverance.  The title song is perfect to these ears.
