4 stars This sophomore release by Norwegian act Antidepressive Delivery certainly delivers lots of goodies to it's listeners; especially of certain types of 70's music is to your liking.

A dominating feature on this release is the combination of hard, driving guitar riffs and Hammond organ; in a typical 70's hard rock style which first and foremost makes you think about Deep Purple. The style isn't that close though, but the sound reminds of both them and Uriah Heep at times. However, more mellow segments as well as complicated parts are added to the compositions on this album - soaring keyboard layers and dampened funky guitar riffs as well as atmospheric guitar soloing; and in these mellow sections there are some Genesis and Camel moments. Again not similar in style, but with certain passages containing a similar sound at times. A fourth artist to namedrop here is Santana; as there are quite a few fusion moments here reminding (again more in sound than style) of this fine giant of the 70's. And the band sees to it to make a fifth influence rather obvious on the tune We will Crimson You.

Mixed together, this combination makes for an album that has a familiar sound to it; without sounding like a copy of any artists - at least not any big name ones - that can think off. A good release with strong tunes, with a mood that most certainly lives up to the band's chosen moniker.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
