5 stars Difficult music. If you need a melody or a refrain to hook up with a song, this is not your band. But it is worth giving it a try. Deluge's music is no doubt a musical adventure, and everyone will get out with something interesting. This first release by Britton in Deluge's is a masterpiece of compositional work. Some themes are more experimental than others, but none is boring, they are highly dynamic with perfect blend of instruments all coming together for a unique orchestral experience, even some peculiar vocals are not in excess. Amongst the less risky are the album title track and the delicious A Squirrel. The musicianship is excellent, an obligatory asset to interpret such a complex music. I wouldn't dare to list any influences by specific groups or styles, so varied and eclectic is, without approaching jazz-rock fusion as it is often found in this type of bands that normally drink on Canterbury-Prog. The tracks are 8 to 25 min long, true major opus of modern music. The opening is also the longest track, in which you will begin to appreciate the impressive compositional skill and originality of the band, although the final 5 min could have been spared. The closing track is simply gorgeous, The Solitude of Miranda. Britton is a great of all times. Try to catch up with his music, you won't be sorry.
