5 stars Uh, this certainly is Beardfish. But more like glimpses of them, shall I say proto-Beardfish ? These themes will later turned into more consistent piece of work in part1, then for real (and to the maximum) in part2 and hangover in part3, eh, I mean Destined Solitare, which provides full mature sound.

Keyboards, guitar style, all these other minor elements that make their music, it's here. I even realized that some parts from here were re-written later, re-used (mostly in better way) . And that this is concept album ? All their albums to some extent are to be exact. This is more, that's true (other pointed it out). But what can be applied to both discs presented here is that it's beautiful music. Often melodic, but not pathetic, with a lot of material to involve this atmospheric feeling. But for hells sake, it's not consistent. In contrast to their later work, it's somehow weak. Even it's good, it's paler than their new ones, so I'm left with no other choice than to give

5(-). I love Beardfish, but this feeling is too strong for me. Even it's funny (in classical BF style), it's good and I'm sure I'll listen it many times and often.

EDIT (Dec 10) - perfect
