4 stars Sleeping In Traffic: Part Two was my very first Beardfish album, and still remains one of their best in my mind. This album has a dark feel throughout and is also often very symphonic. They use a lot of organ sounds, which I am not particularly a fan of, but it isn't as dominant as it is in some progressive rock bands. All of the melodies in these tracks are very memorable and crafted masterly, along with the musicianship being impeccable entirely. I think this is the album that anchored Beardfish into the position of best modern eclectic progressive rock band, and it's hard to disagree. This is stronger than any of the material that they would go on to release in the future. The epic title track is exceptionally fantastic because it changes constantly while remaining coherent and well structured. It never gets boring, and along with the rest of the album, it manages to pack in a healthy dose of humor without sounding stupid.

Highly recommended.
