Beardfish - +4626 Comfortzone (2015)

The eight and final album from this Swedish band.

The band was a quartet on this album with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

The band quit the scene after eight albums and minimal success. The truth is that the music was too complex and too eclectic for even the progressive rock scene. The split up of this band is one of the greatest tragedies in this scene.

The band gives us an hour of eclectic progressive rock. The music is a mix of Scandinavian symphonic prog, folk rock and eclectic prog in the King Crimson and Gentle Giant mould.

The vocals are really great and the music is pretty melodic too.

This album also has some majestic pieces of music and showcases a band who are sorely missed.

This is their swansong but all their last six albums is albums all prog rock fans should own. 

This is indeed a very good album.

3.5 points
