4.0 out of 5 stars Beardfish........Weirdfish? 7 July 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of quirky progressive rock with a 1970's flavour, then you may well enjoy the latest release from Sweden's Beardfish. Although by their own admission they are greatly influenced by early King Crimson & Gentle Giant, Beardfish have their own distinctive sound & are very much a 21st century band.
Destined Solitaire follows in a similar vein to Sleeping in Traffic (parts one & two), the previous two releases. If you like either of these then you won't be disappointed. If you are new to Beardfish, you can expect some long & complex arrangements, catchy pop influenced hooks & guitar/keyboard driven rock, all mixed together with a dash of surreal humour.
While this album won't set the world on fire, it never fails to entertain & will certainly bear repeated plays. I expect to be still enjoying it long into the future.
Buy it. What's the worst that can happen?

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutting Edge Swedish Prog 25 Aug 2009
By Kurt Harding - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After enjoying Sleeping In Traffic parts 1 and 2, I was eager to hear what Beardfish would come up with next. Well, fans didn't have to wait long. Destined Solitaire is an album which further solidifies the band's place in the vanguard of progressive rock.
I like the band's quirky and often Zappa-esqe approach to both the edgy lyrics and the music. But what sets Beardfish apart from others in a similar vein is the singular sound of Rikard Sjoblom's driving, pumping keyboard attack and the dual guitar assault of Sjoblom and David Zackrisson that lifts the listener into the musical stratosphere.
I don't have a favorite cut, I like the whole album. So much goes on here that its impossible not to find something to like about each song. The CD is housed in a trifold digipak and comes with an attractive booklet featuring artwork and those all-important lyrics. If you are a fan of modern prog, don't miss hearing this cutting edge Swedish powerhouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Word: Eclectic 30 Nov 2009
By Friend of Metal - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I love Beardfish's Sleeping in Traffic 1 and 2, therefore I was very excited for Detined Solitaire. The prog rock guys from Sweden did not disappoint. But that is coming from a fan. You see, Beardfish is like no other band I've ever heard. When I first listened to the aformentioned albums, I was at perplexed, then I wondered if they were joking, and then I finally got it. They are truly an amazing band, but in their effort to see how many styles of music they can bring together and still make something enjoyable, Beardfish will likely challenge many a music fan. It is no different on Destined Solitaire. To be honest I can't even begin to describe the numerous things that Beardfish is doing on this album, but I can say that, if you give it a chance, it is very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT 15 Aug 2009
By Steveroli - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I became a Beardfish fan after listening to Sleeping in Traffic 1&2. Both are amazing. Destined Solitaire does not disappoint and has become one of my favorite cd's. Very rich compositions with many unexpected musical turns. There is something about this band that makes music fun and interesting. This is not the type of music that gets boring after a few spins. This is an album that you have to dig deep to get the most of. But the return is well worth it. Overall, another brilliant cd by Beardfish.
4.0 out of 5 stars Beardfish - Takes A While To Grow On You 30 April 2014
By Steven Sly - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an album that requires quite a few listens to really comprehend. To be honest, upon my first couple of listens to it I had come to the conclusion that it was one of the band’s weaker efforts. It just seemed to meander and kind of go on and on and on without a clear direction. But……after about the 4th listen to the album it really began to click with me, and I found myself really enjoying it. Rikard Sjoblom is a really talented songwriter with quirky lyrics that often are quite humorous in a subtle subversive way. As always the keyboards and guitar, (sometimes duel guitars) drive this album and the material is quite similar to what the band has done on it’s previous efforts. My only complaint is that it does seem a bit bloated in spots. I think some of the longer tunes could have been shortened a bit as they sometimes just seem to ramble on for no real reason. As I mentioned earlier this is a CD that takes quite a few listens to really absorb. I don’t think this album is quite on the same level as “The Sane Day” or “Void”, but it is very good. If you give it time to sink in you will be rewarded.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music degraded by idiotic lyrics 18 Jan 2013
By bwstrauss - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Beardfish displays some excellent instrumental chops, but this release in particular is hampered by the inclusion of "f bombs" and other cursing. This is totally unnecessary and seems forced in an effort to appeal to the Zappa fan base. The lead voice is difficult to get past, but he would be easier to accept if he wasn't singing garbage. Buyer beware - especially if you have kids that might be listening. I will say the same thing to Beardfish that I tell my sons "people only curse when they lack a broad vocabulary". The real potential of this group can be heard on the instrumental cut "Coup De Grace". Perhaps the band should take a cue from Zappa and "shut up and play..."
