3 stars The least suitable album name in the history of progressive rock? It looks to me. Because the form of this second effort of Deluge Grander, is far from good. Even light years away. The mix that persists in putting everything on the same level makes the experience monotonous, muddled, and boring bordering on painful.

This being said, let's talk about the substance. Because this one is worthy of interest. Compared to "August in the Ural", "The Form of the Good" marks a turning point for the group. The compositions are homogeneous, instrumental and complex (limit free). The inspiration is closer to neo-classical rather than rock. The composition abandons the bass and the drums to rely on a rich classical instrumentation (brass, woodwinds and strings). My favorite tracks: Common Era Caveman and Aggrandizement.

An album that may be good, but difficult to judge because listening is so unpleasant. Will there one day be remixes offering a production worthy of the name? We can dream.
