4 stars Another chewy album by Beardfish, feeling less retro than previous efforts.

"The platform" has a special and expressive snare drum sound. "And The Stone Said: If I Could Speak" is a long and solid piece of 15-minute music. But wait - can you hear that beautiful saxophone solo and tasty genuine Hammond chords? They are abruptly interrupted by modern synth and then prog-metal attack. "Green Waves" is one of the heaviest numbers on the album with heavy riffing and drumming and intensive vocals. The melody is quite simple. "Akakabotu" brings us back to 70's with a touch of Canterbury and Camel. Dominating instruments are saxophone, Hammond and very audible bass guitar.

Overall, there are average and above-average tracks but the album does not reach the quality of "Destined Solitaire" or previous albums but is better than the swan album by Beardfish.
