Anti-Depressive Delivery: Chain of Foods

After the esteemed Laser's Edge released Feel. Melt. Release. Escape., Anti-Depressive Delivery's 2004 debut — a modern technical and aggressive mélange of frantic guitars, hyperkinetic keyboards and enthusiastic vocals — the Norwegian band left the label, broke up and soon reformed with a far less aggressive sound. Now, four years later, Anti-Depressive Delivery leans more toward the Flower Kings, Ritual and Pain of Salvation. Chain of Foods opens strongly with the album's best song, "Starchaser" — an upbeat Spock's Beard-meets-Yes hybrid that re-establishes the band — and the quartet takes a decidedly classic rock approach to "Terminal," channeling Kansas, while echoes of Pink Floyd and the Moody Blues can be heard in "Blood Is Blood."

While less adventurous than Feel. Melt. Release. Escape., Chain of Foods (available on Musea Records) will be more universally appealing to progressive-rock fans.

1) Starchaser
2) Desert Machine
3) Accordion Woman
4) Terminal

Anti-Depressive Delivery: Chain of Foods

My Score:

I really love this album...bit more of a retro vibe than Feel Melt Release Escape - also, quite a bit more accessible, as I had to listen to the first album quite a few times to really appreciate it. This has quite a lot of mellow moments too, which causes some interesting mid-song mood changes. Quite a step up from the first album. Hope the guys stick around to make some more great music, as Prog rock seems to be on its way to becoming really popular again.
