BEARDFISH Sleeping In Traffic: Part 1 SPV/Inside Out (2007)

Strangely opens with a French accordion/sea shanty, but the prog organ and guitar come in and save the day. The next few tracks are like prog pop, whimsical, bollock free.

While the music is well performed and in places intricate (the acoustic end of King Crimson kind of thing) it just does nothing. 'And We Never Know' nods seriously in the guitar pop direction. Progressive guitar pop? Have I coined a new phrase here?

Singer/songwriter guitar pop fits in there too. The heavier moments are too sparse, and at times a little jangly. On a few 30 second bursts the keyboard player shows his love of ELP; on others there’s a progressive/garage echo to the organ.

Some excellent moments, but too much of this album lacks consistency or direction or identity.
