4 stars It's getting better all the time..."

I suppose it's the best album of 2008. After excellent previous CD ("Sleeping in traffic: Part One"), which was issued in 2007, the band did almost impossible thing - recorded even better album. Despite album enough long - over than 74 minutes, and the longest track "Sleeping In Traffic" - more than 35 minutes, it's never bored. It's classic art rock at his best. Sometimes it reminds Gentle Giant (especially Rikard Sjoblom's vocals and keyboards), sometimes Genesis, but always in special, Beardfish-ish way. The band has his own face, and it's very intelligent face. There is also one heavier, guitar-oriented song, "South Of The Border". Arrangements are brilliant, musicianship is great, and music itself is very interesting. In my opinion, it sounds much better than Tangent or Flower Kings, really! And it's as excellent, as classic progressive albums of early 70-s. I think, today they are perhaps the most interesting prog-band not only in Sweden, but in whole world. Why not?
