EAC Rip | FLAC (image+.cue+log) - 886 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 330 MB | Covers - 64 MB
Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: InsideOut Music/Soyuz

Although progressive rock's popularity peaked in the '70s, it continued to enjoy a cult following in the 21st century - and one of the noteworthy prog rock bands that came out of Europe in the 2000s was Sweden's Beardfish.
Sleeping in Traffic: Part One (2007) is Beardfish's third album, but the Swedish outfit's first for a major progressive rock record label, namely InsideOut. Even though the album went by rather unnoticed, prog rock fans should take note of it. Beardfish do not break new ground, but their take on the genre has a lot of balls and feeling. Blending an occasional Gentle Giant influence with a strong Genesis background and a deep-running blues basis, the group is particularly successful in the melody department, without devolving into ersatz melodic hard rock. In other words, these Swedes strike a very fine balance between prog complexity and sincere feeling. In that regard, their strongest achievement is "Harmony," a moving progressive blues number showcasing the vocal prowess of the group's singer… and some mean organ playing. Also worth a special note are the all-out prog rocker "Sunrise" and the Gentle Giant/Ritual-inspired "Year of the Knife." The mini-epic "Roulette" (12 minutes) works out a little less convincingly, mostly due to a lack of general direction, as it turns into a hodgepodge of underdeveloped ideas. The ballads are also hit or miss, although "Afternoon Conversation" is a definite keeper. Overall, Sleeping in Traffic, Pt. 1 packs a nice progressive punch while remaining on the more accessible side of the fence.

Sleeping in Traffic: Part Two (2008). The material on this 74-minute CD has plenty of complexity; tracks like "The Hunter," "As the Sun Sets," "South of the Border," and "Sunrise Again" have all kinds of twists and turns, and none of them adhere to a simple verse/chorus/verse/chorus format. But complexity never comes at the expense of feeling on Sleeping in Traffic, Pt. 2; nor does it come at the expense of humor. Granted, "humor" isn't a word that one often hears in connection with progressive rock - which has often been accused of taking itself too seriously - but it's a word that is definitely applicable on parts of this album, and some of Beardfish's sense of humor comes from having a healthy appreciation of the late Frank Zappa. Gentle Giant, Yes, Genesis, and Camel have all been cited as major influences on Beardfish, but the Scandinavians have learned some things from Zappa as well. Zappa had no problem being cerebral and goofy at the same time, and his oddball sense of humor is a positive influence on Sleeping in Traffic, Pt. 2. This album is a consistently appealing demonstration of what prog rock has to offer in the 21st century.
