4 stars Closer and closer to Gentle Giant, closer and closer to masterpiece

I think Beardfish is one of these contemporary bands, that makes an improvement in form with every next release. There isn't exception with the release of Destined Solitaire. It's fresh, profound and really innovative. With Destined Solitaire Beardfish looks like Gentle Giant more and more, but without stealing themes and ideas. They just improve their own art rock style. I'm very attracted by some of the motifs on the album. Especially the bringing in of some themes from different genres (death growls on homonymous song, rap singing on In Real Life There Is No Algebra, frequent use of accordion), a lot of tempo changes, saturated sound, artistic vocals and many more. I'm surprised with the low interest in PA for reviewing this album after successful Sleeping in Traffic Part Two. Only 39 votes after 6 months of its release. In my opinion one of the bests of 2009 - 4,2 stars.

Highlights in Destined Solitaire:

1.Coup de Grāce. /flawless/

2.Destined Solitaire. /true masterpiece/

3.Where the Rain Comes In. /highly recommended eclectic song/
