3 stars D_LETION, Abigail's Ghost's sophomore release, has a much more unique sound than their first CD SELLING INSINCERITY which to me sounded like a Porcupine Tree rip-off--although, I admit I'm a huge PT fan. On this record, Abigail's Ghost sounds far less proggy and leans more towards mainstream alt.metal (which ends up sounding more like Tool circa AENIMA but not as brooding). Because of this, D_LETION is not as interesting or, to be frank, as *good* as their debut album. Of particular note are Joshua Theriot's vocals, which take on a much more American tone, akin to Maynard James Keenan, than his previous attempt to mimic Steven Wilson (!) D_LETION is a bit heavier than SELLING INSINCERITY and relies more on crunching riffs and brute force than musical virtuosity or complex performances. Recommended if you like Tool, Oceansize, or Chevelle. GRADE: B- (82%)
