3 stars A few months ago I witnessed this Swedish formation during their performance on the Dutch Symforce Festival. I was delighted about their powerful and varied sound and enthousiasm, especially the bass player freaked out!

This is Beardfish their debut album (2003), quite an exciting musical experience: compelling and bombastic with psychedelic undertones and Swedish vocals in the titletrack, twanging acoustic guitar with violin-Mellotron in the dreamy Brother, mid-tempo rock with heavy guitar play and lush Hammond organ in the alternating Poison Ivy And The Full Monty and catchy Hammond with rhythm guitar, a flowing guitar solo and exciting work on the Moog synthesizer in the long A Psychic Amplifier. My CD version also contains two bonustracks: a fluent rhythm with wah-wah guitar and Hammond waves in In Your Room and a heavy atmosphere with powerful vocals, again Hammond waves and sensational solos on synthesizer and guitar.

These guys know how to entertain and how to write dynamic music with lots of strong solos on guitar and keyboards (a big hand for the Hammond organ), this is a band to discover! My rating: 3,5 stars.
