Finally a bit of a mis step..... Read some very good reviews about a band called Delusion Squared who I believe come from France

They are a prog rock trio with female vocals and so I bought the album II (the cleverley titled second album)

It's not a bad album in that you rush to turn it off but it's utterly forgetable once the last song finishes. The vocal are polite but nothing special. The opening track Double Vision suggests they may listen to a lot of latter day Marillion and the whole album feels like a bit of a Porcupine Tree homage in places

The music is all well played with some nice keyborads in places but there just aren't enough hooks to make you want to revisit the album on a regular basis

A shame but an album that fails to shine
