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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I have yet to be disappointed in anything done by Spocks Beard. Their songs are beautifully constructed and the musicianmanship/vocals are superb. Read morePublished on March 8, 2009 by R. Kallet
I consider this Beard's "Fragile" before their "Close to the Edge", "V". They've finally gotten their sound down and have perfected the arrangements. Read morePublished on October 1, 2008 by JDD
