4 stars This is actually the first Spock's Beard album that i got, so i can't compared this album with their other works. This album opens with an epic called 'A Flash Before My Eyes'.The epic itself speaks about a man that facing his death because a car accident and somehow got a reflections of his past, that described in 7 tracks. The album itself has a lot of variety in style between each tracks. For example, the track 'I Wouldn't Let it Go' sounds like a ballad/pop songs, while 'Surfing Down the Avalanche' is a heavy rock track. I think the band do a great job here in compossing the songs, and the lyrics itself also well written IMO. Some of the songs sound like a ballad, or even a pop song here, but i think it work well with the other tracks. Overall, a very nice album, doesn't really have a weak tracks IMO. Good musicianships as well as composing and lyrics writing. It's really worth a try.
