The first album by Firebird didn't quite hit the spot, sounding leaden and dull.
What a revelation this second album is!
The tired,lifeless sound of the first album has been replaced by a vibrant retro sound that totally rocks!
The songs are far superior to the debut as well, and will lodge themselves in your brain after a single play.
Special mention must go to'Hammer and Tongs' and 'Zoltana'which groove along superbly.
If you're after an album which has one foot in the past, but is relevant today then I heartily recommend this release.

There is not much to say of this album, or any of firebirds catalogue. Why did steer decide to move in this direction? I do not know. I know 1 thing though, you put this album up against underground records from the early 70's(leafhound & the like), which it is trying to emulate...it sounds like s**t

Firebird attempt to bring back the thunderous sound of Hard Rock in the seventies with rockin' electric guitars and king-sized riffs. Often lumped in with the Stoner sounds of Kyuss and Fu Manchu, Deluxe brings us good quality old fashioned rock'n'roll. And nothing much else.
Sadly, this offering fails to inspire very much after initial listenings. While their hearts are in the right place, Firebird don't come close to the hazy, bass-fueled energy of their stoner peers, nor do they seem to be able to match the inventive streak of their seventies forefathers.
The overall effect is "hey, I know this is supposed to be cool, but why does it sound like REO Speedwagon?"
Do the maths: 90's averaged with the 70's minus all the fun = 80's AOR! And there you have it, what seemed from the outset to be a pretty happening rock band are simply peddling you back "Living on a Prayer" from the dour decade we'd rather forget.
Don't bother with this. Get some Led Zeppelin or some Electric Wizard or something instead. Heck, if you really want to listen to stuff like this, you may as well get "Blaze of Glory" - it's all you deserve.

Firebird-Fireball!!! 18 Oct. 2002
By Phil On - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best "influenced by the 70's" album!
Firebird is not a clone of black sabbath or led zep or cream...it's a lil bit of everything, smartly put together.
Of course those three musicians are talented in their own bands-cathedral, spiritual beggars and carcass(r.i.p.),but together they go a little bit further, they recreated the feel and the energy of the greatest 70's productions and add an extra soul to their work.
Bill Steer is an amazing guitarist, his riffs and melodies are filled with emotions and his solos just give the chill.
The rythm section could almost dethrone some of the best ryhtm section from the 70's, check out HAMMER&TONGS and its very YOU FOOL NO ONE(Deep Purple)rythm.
Steer's voice is quite soft and very melodic, sometimes reminds me of Mark farner or David Byron.
The sound of the album is very bright and clear, unlike the sound of most Spritual beggars's albums, and to me it makes a big difference.
Firebird 's music is closer to Spritual than Cathedral or Carcass-especially what they add the Hammond or the percussion-but defenitly more open, back to a power trio.
the timming of the album is also great...it's not because you can put 74 min of music on a cd that you have to.
Really great!

Thats 70s Sound!!!!!!!!! 6 Jun. 2005
By J. H. Infante - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Deluxe is the second release from the so mentioned by me Bill Steer, this is a stuning album full of 70s concept, from the album title you realize what you can expect and you get even more, this unique nomenclature ,Carcass ,Cathedral and Spiritual Beggars, couldnt be more exciting than this. I have already reviewed the official three releases from this awesome ensamble and i have to say that this guys really rocked my world, Stoner Rock have been the best that could happen to heavy music in this new millenium, lets go for more

The 70's Live On 17 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Firebird is a power trio influenced by older groups like Cream, Mountain, and Hendrix. They play music similar to early 90's bands like Badlands and The Cry Of Love. This album is much more dynamic than their self titled album before it. On their debut the vocals were buried in the mix. This was hard to understand as Bill Steer is a fine singer in the tradition of Jack Bruce And Felix Pappalardi. On Deluxe this problem was corrected, although on one or two of the tracks it could still be louder. That aside, the tunes are great, the playing is great: nobody out there is playing hard blues based rock like these guys. Plus the album has a heavy edge that the debut was lacking.
Can't wait to hear their new release "Number 3", but at 37 bucks as an import, I'll have to wait for the domestic release. These guys getted lumped in the so called "Stoner Rock" catagory, but the playing is much more accomplished than most of the stoner bands. So if your're into blused based rock 70's style, check Deluxe out.
Firebird Deluxe Baby! 5 Nov. 2010
By Realmware - Published on Amazon.com

Second release from Mr. Bill post-Carcass. If you like bluesy melodic rock ( Badlands w/ Jake E. Lee, Blue Cheer's 2nd or 3rd LP, Black Crowes, Early Wolfmother, etc. ), you will probably dig this. If you're expecting some Carcass or Napalm Death... steer clear ( no pun intended ), this won't fill that grind urge. This is straight out rockin' blues with great vocals and superb musicianship. I've get the entire Firebird collection... not a bad one in the bunch.
can't play harmonica 26 Jun. 2014
By John Matro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I borrowed this and two other Firebird CDs because I heard that Bill Steer plays harmonica. But I only found two songs among 3 CDs where there was any noticeable harp playing, and one is the last cut on this CD, inappropriately named "Slow Blues". It is not a slow blues, but a collage of noises that Firebird tries to pass off as music. The noise that begins the song, Steer thinks is blues harmonica, but they are sounds that any kid can make on the harmonica, and poorly done at that. His other effort, "Worried Mind", recorded 5 years ago, is slightly better, but still a waste of time to hear it even once. I'd even go so far as to say that Bill Steer is the worst so-called professional harp player that I've ever heard.

I'm a hard rocker from way back and I like heavy metal, acid rock, and distorted sounds. But it has to be musical, and Firebird isn't that.

Highly recommended for the hard of hearing, because it really doesn't matter what you listen to, so it might as well be this.
