AllMusic Review by

Psychedelia used to mean taking space trips with guitars, at least in 1960s musicology. The influential Ibiza and Goa scenes spun hedonism into the mix, splicing eroticism into the acid of rave. Total Eclipse have been riding the trance/acid wave for some time now, but unlike many of their imitators, they were one of the first to marry the intergalactic feel of deep space to their turbo-thrusting banks of sequencers.

DELTA AQUARIDS mines a deep vein of sci-fi imagery. One ferocious dance track is titled "Blade Runner." "Bad Data" sets off silicon sparks concerning computer corruption and "Ms. Frankenstein" is a 'goth-dance' somersault. Like the solar event its name references, Total Eclipse pulls the shadow over dance music's eyes while it rebels against the genre's clichFs to exact a unique soundstyle.
