What's this, Fish meets Spock's Beard?

No, this is a new Scandinavian band producing their own new (branded by ProgArchives) 'eclectic prog', whatever that definition precisely means. To my ears, this just means quality music, and judging by the top rating for 2008 by ProgArchives, a lot of prog listeners agree with me.

Not a perfect release by any means but certainly one of 2008's best and most interesting. The rest of the album does not quite live up to the undoubted highlights, the opening segue of songs 'Into the Night' and 'The Hunter' and the centrepiece title track, measuring a whopping 36 minutes and counting. That's real prog! In fact 'SWT part 2' is arguably the best progressive track of the year, I've certainly heard nothing better, and is worth the price of the album alone.

Well done guys.

I've taken a liking to Scandinavian Progressive Rock recently. After discovering Beardfish, I went on to find Simon Says, A.C.T. and Magic Pie.

Sleeping in Traffic: Part Two is a highly polished, fully accomplished, well produced album of Genesis/Yes style prog rock. All the tracks are really good once you penetrate them and I would recommend this album to anyone wanting to enjoy a rigorous prog rock workout with shades of dark humor.

I look forward to catching up on their earlier albums.

Beardfish have always been an impressive band of excellent musicians who've enjoyed plundering the styles of 70s proggers; Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant, with a touch of Frank Zappa and King Crimson. This however, is a breakout album where they've really found their own voice - you can still hear echoes of the other bands but Beardfish are firmly in control and enjoying themselves.. They've even included a 36 minute epic which out-epics most other bands!

The main difference with this album is that all the chord changes, tempo shifts, dazzling solos, hang together and make sense, Past works, while technically very impressive (and I still like them a lot) are a little more random and less expressive.

It's an album that requires repeated listenings; you can miss a lot the first few times and can only appreciate over time. But there's enough immediacy to make the repeat visits a pleasure. Highly recommended.
