I have a big flaw, I admit it: as soon as a band is stamped "controlled Swedish origin", it benefits from a strong positive a priori on my part. It must be said that this beautiful country is the cradle of many talented and original bands, at the forefront of which we find for example the A.C.T. youngsters who play in the same yard as Beardfish.

If this opus is clearly a follow-up to the previous one, musically speaking, the evolution is undeniable and will confuse many people. Why is that? Because there's a lot of delirium in this album that was sorely lacking before. "Sleeping In Traffic Part Two" is a series of compositions skillfully mixing a progressive rock sometimes very square and musical deliriums : waltzing interludes, jumping and joyful melodies on "Cashflow", relentless rhythmics and a wink to disco on the fabulous track which will give its title to this album.

There are some tracks that alone justify the discovery of a band and in this case, you have to discover Bearfish with this 35 minutes track. Indescribable is the only word that comes to my mind because it's so great. Everything is there, in the spirit of the progressive rock of the 70's, with moreover the grains of madness that I personally love to discover in many bands of my favorite style.

Add to all that I've just told you, a pronounced taste for vintage sounds (but with an excellent production) reminiscent of the Gentle Giant and voila, it's ready to be consumed... without moderation, of course.
