3 stars My first ever exposure to Beardfish, although I have just eaten a cod for dinner.

The similarities of a cod dinner and Beardfish music is that both are colourful and both is aquired taste. It took me thirty years to fall in love with cod dinners. I do not think it will take that long to fall in love with the creative outputs from Beardfish though. Their music is very charming.

The music on Mammoth is deeply rooted in what we in ProgArchives has labelled proto-prog. Mammoth is indeed a proto-prog album. The music is spacey, heavy, rhythm'n'soul aka Tamla Motown, hippie and very 1960s. Only the sound tells us that we are in 2011, or 2010 when this album was recorded. The heavy accented English vocals is also charming. These vocals is actually a big plus for the music here. A music as tilting weirdo as the tilting tower in Pisa.

Although I really like the sound and most of the music here, the album does not really have any superb melodies or even melody lines. It trundles along nicely without really kicking into gear. But this album is still a good album and brings a smile to my face. I really like it despite of it's shortcomings. An order for more Beardfish albums has been made.

3.25 stars
