4 stars Beardfish come out to all sights with its fourth studio release - Sleeping In Traffic: Part Two. It can be consider as the breakthrough album for this Swedish eclectic band. All the news are good here for this innovative album. The sound is compact and very saturated; the sound production is perfect. The songwriting is really of high standard. All the songs are fresh and flexible, and most important - remembable. The band is strongly influenced by Gentle Giant. Without being quite dark, it's a release each art rock fan must own! It is the second part of Sleeping In Traffic duology, but it's very different to it, in positive manner. More completed song and I think the most important - very compact sound, one of the most compact sounds, I've ever heard. Some songs reveal different way of thinking of this musicians; for example - Cashflow. It's very Gentle Giant-sounding song with avantgarde direction of creativeness, full of light detachment tunes. Other song I want to point at is The Hunter - very original jazz-sounging song at the beginning, gradually transforming into typical art rock song of highest standard. Sleeping in Traffic is the culmination of the duology as whole; it's full of fresh artistic ideas and I consider it as wonderful progressive journey, appropriate for over and over again use. There is something very interesting with this album. If you listen to it without knowing the year of release, you could think it's 70s' work. The sound is really classic. 4 stars without any hesitation for the best work of that promising band!
