2006 was the year of THE discovery, and Metal Storm was probably the first magazine to review Diablo Swing Orchestra and predict a wonderful future success to the band. I remember the day when I first listened to the band and said "what the hell is that?", for sure The Butcher's Ballroom was a great surprise and one of the most unexpected album of the last 10 years… I was awaiting a lot their new release, Sing-Along Songs For The Damned & Delirious, with a little fear to be honest, the level of the previous release being extremely high but now that I listened this release a lot of time, I can tell you that Diablo Swing Orchestra didn't miss the goal one more time!

Underpaid M.D.
I'll quote myself this time:
"I like it even more than "The Butcher's Ballroom". They did all what I wanted them to do: become more aggressive, shorten the number of songs, more male singing, and more experimentation. Also they are more experienced musicians than before. They did it!"

TBB is a great album, really, but sometimes I find it too long, so, this one is well balanced. And c'mon, yes, the album is crazier, but they aren't at the Unexpect crazyness level, which a good thing for this band, they still have their very own sound.

BTW, this guys are very nice, I met them last year and they were really kind to me and my friends.

In the good way or the bad way?

Because I really think that the cover is perfect for the music. I would love to see more original ideas instead of a forest at night.

Really diverse and well-performed album filled to the brim with pleasant melodies, exciting grooves and a healthy dose of craziness.

Huge disappointment after the The Butcher's Ballroom. Most of the songs are an unfocused mess, and Annlouice's vocals are really annoying, almost unbearable. I don't know why she changed her singing style, it was much more smooth on the previous album. I don't like the male opera singer either. The only good song is Stratosphere Serenade, because it's mostly instrumental

This group is a new discovery for me. I love what I heard from this album, although the vocals aren't particularly my favorite. Regardless, this is some damn fine music and very refreshing. Just what I needed to hear.

This isn't "crazy" at all, not even comparable to Unexpect
