2 stars Okay, it took me a good bit of effort to hunt down this album, and the results have been less than pleasing. Whereas Bead Game's first album flirted vaguely with the twangy, down-home feel of country, their second belated release embraces the genre much more completely. There is nary a keyboard riff to be detected; instead, the band provides us with some very straightforward, very rockabilly numbers. There is also a much more Christiantastic element, which I suppose is fitting on an album titled Baptism, but it does tend to throw this atheist for a bit of a loop.

Over all, Bead Game still maintain a hint of their prog edge, making the result quite listenable, but actual progressive rock this is not. Having said that, this album is decent prey for the rare album hunter, and is certainly recommended for fans of Bead Game's debut. But don't expect stars and fireworks.
