3 stars What's on a man's mind, dr. Freud? A NICE BEAVER from Holland! This band just released their second album and what a stunning progress they've made. The first track "Nights In Armour" (at about 12 minutes) is a wonderful and alternating piece featuring lots of shifting moods (bombastic, bluesy and even some Andalusian undertones), pleasant keyboards (organ, violin-Mellotron), nice vocals and strong guitar work (sensitive soli). The next seven compositions deliver varied and tasteful prog rock: from "Morphine" (a compelling blend of ethnic, prog and metal), "Any Other Day" (a polished prog rock ballad with a moving guitar solo) and the title track (sensational bombastic break halfway with sparkling piano and heavy guitar-riffs) to the exciting instrumental "The Beaver Stater" (intro features soaring keyboards and beautiful Latimer-inspired solo and in the end a wah-wah drenched guitar play) and the classical influenced final song "Lawn Mower's Day Off". Keep on proggin' NICE BEAVER, I'm already looking forward to your next album!
