Album Notes
"Bluebeard proved to be the rare band that could pull off a chorus alternating from a five-count to a six-count without sounding like prog rock...and the odd-timed ballad "Roadside" was good solid pathos any band could be proud of."

- SF Bay Guardian Aug 16 2000

The plank road along the shore was long and dark, and all he had to light
his way was a fading oil lantern, soon to perish from lack of fuel. Rain
was falling on his already wet clothes, mingling with the lingering smell of seawater. He wished he could find his way out of the debt he had yet to pay, as the light of the inn at the end of the way became visible at last. Just a few more minutes of walking and I'll work on stopping the shivers, he thought. The port had opened momentarily, just long enough for him to step through, enough for him alone. Those who had been left
behind would soon be forgotten. He knew the drill. He knew that soon
he would again hear the sound of the boots, soles ringing, and the chase
would continue. He hoped the remaining night would offer some rest as
he stepped through the door of the inn.

Nadine Rocks. I really like this song and thought I should be hearing it on the top 40 at least. I wish I could be in SF to hear these guys live.... This CD is a bit heavy but being used to the 80's rock I love it. Where are they now??? whats new from these guys? Kevin Meagher has a top 10 Voice with some work I think.

Biz Music

This album simply rocks.
This album was a first for SF-based Bluebeard, whom I beleive are in the process of changing their name, having encountered too many alter-ego bands. SF clubs haven't seen Bluebeard since last summer (2002) when the band was seen at Slim's opening up for the Dixie Dregs and Living Colour (not the same night). The prog-rocker Dregs worshippers seemed to really enjoy the band, who burned up the 30-minute set like a fast short fuse, exploding at the end with "Rail", this album's closer. While no album could match seing this band live, this CD comes close, expressing a broad range of genres and textures, from heavy and relentless to dreamy soundscapes. The opener "Steep" is like a roller coaster ride, whereas the follow up "Nadine" sounds like it could be on the radio, if it was in 4/4 time. Kevin Meagher's voice is smooth and strong throughout, breaking into a rasp at the appropriate times. Ex-Psychefunkapus guitarist Jon Axtell does a fine job producing and embellishing, and Bluebeard wisely employs the talents of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum bassist Dan Rathbun to mold the final mix into something quite cohesive, considering the wide array of musical and sound sources. I like these guys. They rock. The lack of attachment to a particular genre appeals to me. Several SF luminaries appear on the album, including Eric McFadden and members of Birdsaw and Deadweight. Check it out.
