This compilation album boasts of various music genres such as mellow to hard rock.

Rock Grooves in Delirious Ways compiles some of the best contemporary rock ballads made by established and promising local bands.

A ballad, by the way, is usually a narrative or poem, in a song. Combining it with rock creates an exploration of sentimental themes such as yearning and need, love and loss. This type of music generally stars slowly and quietly and then gradually crescendos to a powerful, climatic end.

Rock Grooves creates a nice dosage of love music, merging it with rock tunes that make it more suitable for the not-too-mushy-but-forlorn romantic. The collaborative experiences of the bands featured in this CD generate symmetry of style that is fit for the listener's needs.

Fourteen tracks jam-packed from mellow to hard rock, this CD is for every rakista that needs to take a break from all that jumping around and be emo for a while.

This CD includes songs from Cattski, Audio Lokal, Subliminal, Plaster of Paris, Pop Filter, Kartoon Chemistry, Alamid, Shifting Sand, The Spills, Cover Me Quick, Spoons, Mac, Moonstar 88, and Last Train.
