5.0 out of 5 stars This is a really great (and progressive) album... March 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge progrock fan, I love all prog from 70s Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, ELP, to 80s Rush (arguably not prog, but still really tight and musically engaging), to 90s progmetal of Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Pain of Salvation... the list goes on, all great bands. But there's one thing I despise about SOME (not all) prog fans. Even though this is supposed to be the genre of creativity, bounderyless thinking, freedom of music, and experimentation, some get it in their heads that it's not good if it is easy to get into quickly. "Real music must take time and thought to get into", and ok, there's definitely truth in that, SOME of my favorite stuff took a while to get into, some did not. I think in many ways, the best music has a complexity that makes the music listenable forever, but at the same time, has great melodies and hooks that keep you coming back. These two things aren't opposites and aren't mutually exclusive, in fact, in the best works, they even coexist at the same time! This is one of those works. Accused by many prog fans to be more popish, simply because it has GREAT MELODIES!
Come on you guys [...], the progressive spirit isn't lacking in this work, it's stronger than ever. I feel "Kindness of Strangers" really lacked great melodies. Yeah it was progressive and complex, but there was nothing there to make me WANT to unravel the complexity and delve into the work very deeply, I mean, why would I want to unravel a complex work if I can't even "get into it"?
And bottom line, who cares of it's "great prog", it's "great music" that has a very well thought out cohesiveness and variety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff. April 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I must admit: I'm intrigued. This is the first Spock's Beard CD I've heard, and I'm quite taken with it. According to the reviews below, I should find it disappointing, not moving and lacking cohesion. I'm happy to report that none of that is true. There are a couple of songs that strike me as a little too mainstream-poppy (but certainly not boy-bandy!), but overall this a CD that has a real nice feel and flow to it. Some of it, no, most of it really blows me away. Beautiful vocals, splendid somewhat restrained instrumentation, excellent songwriting. And not a spot of filler! Judging from other reviews, this is their least succesful album, so I'm eager to get the rest of their work. One of the most pleasant discoveries of the past couple of years. These guys are too damn good to remain under the radar for too much longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live this way. August 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
'Day for Night',like any Spock's Beard album, is literally crammed with moments of sublime invention and beauty. Although this album took longer to grow on me than any of the other Beard albums, there is enough fantastic material on here to instantly merit the highest rating. The bands signature sound is intact, as is the format of the album laid down on previous releases, with an extended track and a mellower ballad both complementing the usual range of melodic, catchy and spectacularly executed pop influenced prog Neal Morse churns out so effectively.
The title track is an instant classic, and is probably among the strongest cuts on offer here. Spectacular vocal harmonies towards the end of this song only hint at what is to be attempted on 'Gibberish', a delicate and in places plain odd song, with the bands vocal talents being showcased in their entirety for what seems like the first time. 'Skin' completes an impressive opening trio, and this song posseses the most single potential, unleashing the kind of infectious and epic chorus only Neal Morse can produce. The albums strongest moment is certainly the obligatory concluding epic, the poweful 'The Healing Colours of Sound'. Although the song is split into seperate tracks on the CD (I agree wholeheartedly with Lord_Chimp's comment on this matter) the suite achieves continuity and a sustained texture very well. Its not the bands best extended track (see 'At The End of the Day' or 'The Light'), but 'The healing Colours' is another compelling addition to a back catalogue that is frightningly unblemished. Other highlights arrive with 'The Gypsy' and 'Cant get it Wrong', the only full band composition here.
A number of reviewers have commented on the lyrics, dismissing them as weak or ridiculous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and Miss November 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a frustrating album. So much potential, but it never quite comes together as a whole. Still there are moments of brilliance, and moments of sheer listening pleasure. Spock's beard has a tendency to sometimes wear their influences on their sleeves, but when your influences are bands like Genesis, King Crimson, and Gentle Giant, this is not necessarily a bad thing. The opener, "Day For Night" has a very mid-period, post Gabriel Genesis feel to it. King Crimson can be heard shining through on "Crack the Big Sky" and Gentle Giant on "Gibberish". Still these songs work well, because besides having the complexities of their inspirations, they also display great melodic hooks. The band shines on "The Distance to the Sun" with some achingling beautiful harmonies, but falls flat on "Can't Get It Wrong", a rather lame ballad. "Skin" is a fairly straightforward, but not bad, rocker. The album runs into serious problems in its second half, the long, loosely conceptual suite "The Healing Colors of Sound". Neal Morse has proven on other albums that he can write coherent, extended progressive rock epics, but this isn't one of them. It's like Morse wrote a bunch of short songs, some good, some boring, and the band said, "Hey, we're a progressive rock band, we need a long song," and Morse said, "Okay, we'll just lump these short songs together, segue them together in the final mix, repeat a few motifs in the end, and voilá, a prog rock epic." Doesn't work that way. The suite veers from bland balladry to awkward, blues inflected rock, to shiny pop music while never quite coming together. Don't get me wrong, some of it's good. Read more ›
