3 stars Hello, the first Collab to write a review? Ok, get THIS!

I like BEARDFISH. Their music, their attitude, even their name evokes positive feedback from me. But seriously, they need a break. The first LP was almost perfect, high-class Retro-Prog with obvious Heavy Psych touch, but the further BEARDFISH goes the less balanced material they release. The second part of "Sleeping in Traffic" was a crying example of material's incosistence: from throw-away seqeunces to the jewel of eponymous epic. The new one from BEARDFISH shows the same problem, but even more: it's enjoyable while you're playing it, but when you turn your player off, your head is empty. It's not like Prog must be the same way catchy as Pop does, but hello, where have all the songwriting mastery gone? From the first spin I remembered only the Algebra Song and the Accordion Instrumental, and I guess most of listeners too (2-3 tracks, not more). When you're making a 76-min long album, you should be aware of issues like this, shouldn't you? Anyway, it's good, I loved it, but BEARDFISH should not put quantity over quality. Recommended
