Like a kid in a candy store, Nick Saloman gleefully advised the engineer to"take a bit off the top" of his new, digitally (for the first time) recorded album What Did For the Dinosaurs. Saloman has also forewarned Rubric upon delivery of the master thata the guitar is a bit harsher than past Bevis Frond efforts. That is not to say he is incapable of pulling off a beautiful ballad ("Lost Souls Day") which was previewed during last May's acoustic tour. The pop songcraft embraced by Mary Lou Lord, Teenage Fanclub and a smattering of other has also remained ("Silver Dart"). This "dinosaur" might still be a bit cranky. He thinks nothing of admonishing the current rock world around him while delivering mind-blowing Hendrixian leads. The Bevis Frond remain among the lone practicioners of their generation of rockers. Now at the peak of his career, Nick Saloman puts forth his latest jam packed set of music to be worshiped by lovers of rock.

Bevis Hits A New High

"Bevis Frond keeps getting better. The melodies are more beautiful and developed than ever before. This rocks hard, goes to beautiful English folk territory and psyches-out. The 1st and last songs are total long psych-fests. Plus, no one today writes lyrics like this guy (Nick). This is mature, articulate psychedelic music with both softness and an edge. I have always loved the early Bevis (Inner Marshlands, etc,) the best but this and Valedictory Songs are at least as good if not better. This should be a major hit but won't be because it's too good, too eclectic and too English for the US music programmers. Maybe it's better that way. Along with the Israeli psych band Rockfour's "Another Beginning", this is album of the year."
Where are you, everyone?

"I am a B.F. fan since Vavona - but this is really terrific stuff. I picked it up on
vacation at a cool record store in Charlottesville, Va. Nick Salomon is much more
rocking than before, but the melodies are wonderful, timeless, lysergic-drenched,
but several really rock out. Nick is truly a genius. This will probably be widely
ignored, unfortunately, it's one of the best things I've heard this year, and deserves
to be, if not a hit, at least one of those albums you listen to in your dorm room.
It's unbelievably catchy, and just beautiful - it deserves a chance.
Love and Peace to Nick - keep on going, bro!
A great album"

"Any new recording by Nick Soloman is cause for celebration. Why he isn't more popular and well known is beyond me. This new one isn't his best...my favorite is Valedictory Songs from a couple of years ago. Every song on that was great...Dinosaur's got a couple of tunes I could have done without. The recording is crisp, clean and all the better to hear Nick's lovely guitar playing. Still an essential purchase for us Bevis Frond fans."
