The sixth album from this Swedish band.
The band was a quartet on this album with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, ARP synths, keyboards and vocals.
The band was supported by a trio who added saxophones, growl vocals and tambourine.
Beardfish was one of the most interesting Swedish bands during the beginning of this century. They started out as a Frank Zappa band and moved onto a more eclectic part of the progressive rock scene.
Their music and sound is normally very eclectic. But not on this album....
Take Zappa again, add in a lot of Kaipa, Gentle Giant, The Flower Kings and a lot of flower power psych rock. A lot of it from the 1960s, no less.
The guitars, synths and keyboards sound is very 1960s & 1970s. But also updated to this day and age.
The music is really bold and brave. It is also big with some great vocals on the top.
The result is a great album indeed and one to really threaten to occupy a spot on the top 5 Swedish progressive rock albums of all time.
This album is indeed one to be checked out and I totally get their great reputation in the scene.
