3 stars The main thing about Dredg is their unique sound, which has influenced many bands inside and outside USA. The mix of alternative rock with prog and even emo or metal made them famous to a wider audience after the release of "Catch Without Arms". The pleasant surprise in "The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion" is that it 's more experimental compared to their former release. Nevertheless, the prog elements are evident to some songs and are absent in others. Many tracks are simple rock songs, which may appeal to many prog fans, or not at all. I find the album interesting, but I have to admit I sense something here is missing and this doesn't necessarilly have to do with prog, but with the lack of direction. On the other hands Dredg really know how to write great songs. "Ireland", "Lightswitch" and "Saviour" are standout tracks. My personal favourite is "Gathering Pebbles".
