3 stars Less Porcupine Tree ...

This second album moves a bit from the debut one in its similarities with Porcupine Tree even though the basic style remains intact. I think the band has taken its musical root from the like of Porcupine Tree and they cannot move away that much from its root. No harm with it, but it bears risk for those who have been familiar with Porcupine Tree kind of music. But I can guarantee whatever your musical taste is, you will most likely love the music contains here in this album. There is nothing that you can deny in terms of music mood, for example. What I mean is that you would love the upbeat tempo and mood delivered by this album.

The opening track, who happens to be the album title "D_Letion" (5:13) is an upbeat tempo music with its dominant rifffs and drumwork. It flows nicely to "Black Lace" (4:16) in similar vein. Oh yes, you will love the third track which opens with uplifting guitar riffs that make "Romantique Life" (4:34) a dynamic tune - especially combined with tight basslines and poerful vocal work. At least you would like the combined bass guitar and drumwork. You might like the interlude part that starts on minute 2:40 which contains heavy guitar riffs, tight basslines with dybanic drumming and followed stunning (even though short) guitar work.

When the music enters track 4 "Plastik Soul" (5:47) I find it very entertaining listening to the opening dynamic drums with good basslines followed with vocal work. Oh man .. I believe you would love this track very much because it contains very dynamic drumming and nice melody. The band then tones down their music with "Cinder Tin" (5:39) followed with heavy blast of music on the next track "Gemini Man" (4:18) even though the opening is slow. "Sneak Peek" (5:47) is a slow rock composition that reminds me to bands like Pineapple Thief or RPWL."Annie Enemy" (7:20) is also another good track followed with a concluding track "Grave Concerns" (2:25) with its acoustic setting.

Overall, this is a very good album and will satisfy many people with different musical taste. Composition-wise, it's more matured than the debut album. Keep on proggin' ...!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
