5 stars The Joy of progressive music is the never-ending opportunities for exploration and experimentation - the idea that music should make an attempt to break boundaries rather than be restricted by them. Delusion Squared delicately blend neo-progressive elements with a sci-fi concept that will intrigue the mind. Willowy singer Lorraine Young's soft, dainty vocals are juxtaposed with a spacey synth and chunky metallic riffs, all combining to create a stirring and memorable concept album. Opener "Double Vision" begins with a mellow yet eerie acoustic guitar introduction, before being brought to life by a tinkling synt an almost alternative rock-style bank of guitars. "Necrogenesis" on the other hand is a much more psychedelic and trippy experience where Young's vocals shine and collide withe the edgier harshness of the guitar and drums. "Revelation" touches upon the more driven musical themes of progressive metal, and brings with it a Tool-like quality, wich, when married together with the fragile feminine vocals, is a strikink collision of style. "II" is a remarkable concept and one which will stick in your mind for long after its songs have ended.
