5.0 out of 5 stars Cutting Edge Swedish Prog August 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After enjoying Sleeping In Traffic parts 1 and 2, I was eager to hear what Beardfish would come up with next. Well, fans didn't have to wait long. Destined Solitaire is an album which further solidifies the band's place in the vanguard of progressive rock.
I like the band's quirky and often Zappa-esqe approach to both the edgy lyrics and the music. But what sets Beardfish apart from others in a similar vein is the singular sound of Rikard Sjoblom's driving, pumping keyboard attack and the dual guitar assault of Sjoblom and David Zackrisson that lifts the listener into the musical stratosphere.
I don't have a favorite cut, I like the whole album. So much goes on here that its impossible not to find something to like about each song. The CD is housed in a trifold digipak and comes with an attractive booklet featuring artwork and those all-important lyrics. If you are a fan of modern prog, don't miss hearing this cutting edge Swedish powerhouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Word: Eclectic November 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I love Beardfish's Sleeping in Traffic 1 and 2, therefore I was very excited for Detined Solitaire. The prog rock guys from Sweden did not disappoint. But that is coming from a fan. You see, Beardfish is like no other band I've ever heard. When I first listened to the aformentioned albums, I was at perplexed, then I wondered if they were joking, and then I finally got it. They are truly an amazing band, but in their effort to see how many styles of music they can bring together and still make something enjoyable, Beardfish will likely challenge many a music fan. It is no different on Destined Solitaire. To be honest I can't even begin to describe the numerous things that Beardfish is doing on this album, but I can say that, if you give it a chance, it is very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT August 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I became a Beardfish fan after listening to Sleeping in Traffic 1&2. Both are amazing. Destined Solitaire does not disappoint and has become one of my favorite cd's. Very rich compositions with many unexpected musical turns. There is something about this band that makes music fun and interesting. This is not the type of music that gets boring after a few spins. This is an album that you have to dig deep to get the most of. But the return is well worth it. Overall, another brilliant cd by Beardfish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beardfish - Takes A While To Grow On You April 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an album that requires quite a few listens to really comprehend. To be honest, upon my first couple of listens to it I had come to the conclusion that it was one of the band’s weaker efforts. It just seemed to meander and kind of go on and on and on without a clear direction. But……after about the 4th listen to the album it really began to click with me, and I found myself really enjoying it. Rikard Sjoblom is a really talented songwriter with quirky lyrics that often are quite humorous in a subtle subversive way. As always the keyboards and guitar, (sometimes duel guitars) drive this album and the material is quite similar to what the band has done on it’s previous efforts. My only complaint is that it does seem a bit bloated in spots. I think some of the longer tunes could have been shortened a bit as they sometimes just seem to ramble on for no real reason. As I mentioned earlier this is a CD that takes quite a few listens to really absorb. I don’t think this album is quite on the same level as “The Sane Day” or “Void”, but it is very good. If you give it time to sink in you will be rewarded.
