4.0 out of 5 stars better than the debut!
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The tired,lifeless sound of the first album has been replaced by a vibrant retro sound that totally rocks!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...

3.0 out of 5 stars time for a carcass reunion..
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

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars going down in a blaze of glory, 26 Nov 2002
This review is from: Deluxe (Audio CD)
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.
