27. Siamese Fighting Fish - Breathe: See: Move
#3 from MPF. Terrible band name, and I was skeptical at first, but anything with a potential 'prog' influence has my attention even if for a moment. Definitely an album I would never have come across. Very interesting band, as one description doesn't really pin it. They have styles of punk, new age alternative, hard rock, progressive, etc. The end result is definitely good though. Catchy vocals, great hooks, and songwriting skills that others wish they had. The violinist really adds a lot to the atmosphere as well. The twists and turns this album has is impressive, and it makes for a pretty easy listen from start to finish for this almost 45 minute record. Upon first listen I was thoroughly enjoying it, and time has only made it better. This band will definitely be on my radar from now on.
