4 stars From the very first time I listened to this album I was thinking the word ''wise''.It takes a lot of wisdom,talent and hard work to create an album so rich,emotional and easy to get at the same time.''The Pariah,the parrot,the delusion'' is the perfect combination of Dredg's previous efforts,fortunately avoiding the cheesy paths of ''Catch without arms''.Surely,there is a mainstream element in their music but fear not the word pop.I wish all pop music had the amazing choruses and the melodic depths of this band.I don't know if it is progressive or not, artistic is the perfect word,even in the most commercial parts you always have the sense that something ''clever'' is going on.The orchestrations are great and the production is excellent, when a cd consisted of 18 songs never tires you means that everything is being taken care of in every detail.Everything is here, from children choirs (Pariah), Muse-like anthems (I don't know),prog instrumentals (Drunk slide), to classical arrangements (Long days...) and intense ballads.Last but not least, I wanted to say that lyrically Dredg is one of the best bands of the last decade, adding a poetic dimension to their music and enabling the listener to sing and FEEL the songs,something that is very rare nowadays...
