It's been seven years since Delirious? recorded their last live album that was released in the states, Live and in the Can, and with this year's Access:d, Delirious has made up for lost time. Using the familiar tin can packaging with their UK release, Delirious treat their fans to a two disc experience they call Access:d - Live worship in the key of D:.

Disc One starts off with the first of three "Access:d" spontaneous moments before leading into the classic fan favorite "Deeper." "God's Romance" follows, starting off with a drum intro similar to "Come Like You Promise." On GLO, backup vocals were provided by 150 fans in a studio, on Access:d they're provided by a choir of thousands. The crowd levels sometimes feel like they're mixed a little too loud and unnaturally, but if you've ever been to a Delirious gig, you know how overpowering the crowd can be on the worship songs. This is a fact that stands true on Access:d. "My Glorious" is next, followed by the next spontaneous "Access:d Part 02," which starts off with a "Send Your glory" segment that flows into the "Glory" chorus from Mezzamorphis' "Blindfold." This precedes a chorus of "If we'd ask / You would come / send Your rain on everyone." The rawness of this moment stands out the most on disc one, as at the beginning of the segment, Martin and Stu G's guitars seem to be slightly out of tune with each other, and there's a seemingly awkward moment when they both try to find each other's groove. "Love is the Compass" and "Touch" are next, before the final "Access:d" segment on disc one, titled "Rain Down." "Rain Down" is a powerful spontaneous track that highlights equally Tim's keyboard playing and the audience's worship. The "Happy Song" has thankfully been transformed into a full-force rock track. The first disc closes with the classic "History Maker," with Martin encouraging everyone to not worry about running so fast or running so hard but running to finish, before leading them in a final chorus of "Holy is the Lord."

Disc Two begins like a concert set encore with Martin asking the crowd "Do you want some more?" before the start of "Bliss." "Show Me Heaven" comes in almost immediately, and so does the crowd with a (most likely) rehearsed "whoooo" added into the hook. "Sanctify" is next, followed by the new version of "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever" which features Martin singing the bridge in Spanish. On "Take Me Away," Martin changes the first line from "I'm in love with a girl" to "I'm in love with You," making the first verse and chorus sound more like a worship song. Disc two treats us to a special blues rendition of "King of Fools," performed solo by Stu G, and a more intimate version of "Jesus Blood," featuring only Martin and Tim. Martin's voice begins to crack as he seemingly struggles to hit the high notes at the beginning of "Hang On To You." The next three tracks are all spontaneous "Access:d" tracks. The first of which, oddly enough, is another version of "If We'd Ask." For the past couple of years now, "Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble" has been reduced from a complete song to merely singing through the chorus a few times before building into "Dance in the River." "Dance in the River" is followed by the last spontaneous track on disc two, a few choruses of "We'll see Your glory here" from "Lord You Have My Heart." Like most Delirious concerts, disc two closes off with the spine-tingling "Investigate."

Access:d is the ultimate treat for Delirious fans. Those who have never been to a Delirious gig before will know what they've been missing, and those who have seen them live will finally be able to take the experience home with them.
