In a musical world where electronic guitary music seems to merge one song/band into the next, it's refreshingly and genuinely different from anything of the last couple of years. Thoroughly recommend.

This album I have being looking forward to for an absolute age. I am certainly in the majority who think this will be one of the greatest bands and album of the year, and what a great start to the new decade. This album has rekindled the passionate love affair of indie and dance superbly, which has being tragically undermined and unrecognised in the previous decade.

Not only does this album sit well with me, I would certainly urge the masses to go and see these lads live. The first band I saw at Leeds festival 09 and certainly up there as one of the best. The passion and talent for music in their live gigs is without doubt portrayed within this album. Certainly an album to buy.

I go along with bernards two star review on this one about over hype , i dont think it does bands any favours for promoters to over hype their musical output as it can lead to disapointment when your expectations are dashed by good but mediocre music , also i dont see the new order or orbital comparison with acolyte , i think delphic are a band in their own right capable of standing on their own two feet . going by what iv'e heard on this cd i really like and will play over again . nothing stands out so far as memorable but thats not to say its negative as this a great cd but i think it could be improved upon as you get the feeling delphic have real potential , acolyte is perhaps a little too safe and not unique .

Absolutely cracking album, cant stop listening to it. Highlights obviously Doubt, the great Halcyon and the barnstorming Acolyte - If you like underworld, bloc party, orbital or even the kings - new order - grab a copy, download it, sit back listen to it and enjoy...again...and...again...and...again..quality

I've been listening to a lot of very blistering music recently (Husker Du, Outkast mainly) so coming to this album was a bit like eating a cold egg and tomato salad after a week tucking into a succession of hot, flavoursome dishes.

It's all quite competently done; in fact, the synth arrangements are really quite clever in places. But the vocalist (I won't say singer) has one of those annoyingly weedy indie voices which sounds like it should be discussing homework over the telephone with a friend. There are no proper bass-lines to speak of, and lap-top drums clatter harmlessly along as the largely forgettable songs do their best to billow and bluster.
How anyone can compare this to New Order is beyond me; it's middling indie-pop fare with a slick producer/engineer at the controls.
To anyone thinking of shelling out on the strength of the various 4 and 5 star reviews on this site, do yourself a favour and Spotify it first as I've just done. If you still fancy a bit of tomato and cold egg after that, fair enough, place your one-click order. Myself, I'll do what the chorus of the final song 'Remain' advises and "wait for something better."

My husband and I first saw Delphic on Jools Holland one Friday night, and he was hooked. We bought Acolyte as soon as it was released and we're now both hooked; it's a truly awsome debut album from an extremely talented band. Listen and prepare to be amazed.
