2 stars An uncharacteristic step backward to death-metal blandness that accomplishes little, if anything, new and lacks the band's signature songwriting magic. "Deliverance" is by no means horrible, Cannibal Corpse level death-metal, but it is beneath a band of this level-- especially given how amazing "Blackwater Park" was. The trademark dynamics are present but not nearly as effective as before, with Akerfeldt's growl dominating-- and sounding surprisingly weak compared to prior releases. What soft moments there are retain a level of class and sophistication, but are quickly shattered by easily forgettable metal riffs shortly after they start.

One for more dedicated fans.
