4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | April 30th 16

In the grand pantheon of indie rock, Rogue Wave has emerged as one of the most consistent bands of the 21st century, with their style of delicate, summery, acoustic-driven indie bringing them five successful records with a remarkable consistency seen between all of them. In this sense, Delusions Of Grand Fur is no different, as this new record is just as good as anything from Descended Like Vultures or Out Of The Shadow, and only a small shade under Asleep At Heaven's Gate, with a couple of variations on their style to be heard as well. For instance, "What Is Left To Solve" sounds like a modern twist on the earliest The Cure recordings, and the in spots the album has an almost anxious vibe to it. They make excellent use of sparse electronics, which is where Permalight was a bit rough, showing that they've definitely been improving their sound. In short, it's yet another consistent and lovely effort from Rogue Wave, as if it'd be anything other than that.
