4 stars Oregon is the second album from Nice Beaver and is a great listen with some very inventive music. The first track Nights in Armour has a Camel like influence at the beginning before heavier riffs remind me of Rush at times, all in all a great opener. The albums other excellent tracks for me are Oregon with a catchy chorus and varied sections, and the Beaver State an instrumental with some superb guitar in the style of Andy Latimer or even Dave Gilmour this track is just about my favourite. My only (slight) criticism is that the vocals are not quite up there in the same class as the music but nevertheless are by no means poor. Overall this is an excellent release with no weak tracks and I would recommend it to anybody into symphonic rock with a harder edge, this music will I'm sure come across even better live.
