Anti-Depressive Delivery: Feel. Melt. Release. Escape
Anti-Depressive Delivery - Feel. Melt. Release. Escape - [The Laser's Edge]


I am very picky about my progressive rock/metal albums, I can't stand musicians just playing around with their instruments to show us how good they can play, and a lot of the progressive crowd think that that is exactly what they're supposed to do.

Thankfully, Anti Depressive Delivery understand that is not what makes a good album, and proceed to make a solid, rock-oriented release, that is sophisticated and complex, but doesn’t let it's musicianship run amuck, but rather makes use of good, solid songs instead.

The album opens with one of it's strongest cuts, starting off with a strong 70's progressive rock vibe, a bit reminiscent of Focus, and then going off to a more metallic approach, a few things that make this a winner, the strong vocal performance from Griffin's Peter Beck, the great keyboard work, and a really sharp sound.

The band moves effortlessly from the more aggressive Voyage Of No Brain to laid back, jam session vibe Path Of Sorrow, and even though they go into lengthy instrumental bits, they manage not to bore and have some good melodic lines throughout.

Bones & Money ends the album on a high note, another good track that proves that these guys can write a decent tune while remaining complex and progressive.

As progressive metal albums go, this one is among the genre's better ones.
