4 stars Spock's Beard has a weird story on the Prog World. They had a vocalist, they lost it to the Gods, they got their drummer to sing, they lost it to the Circus, they got another vocalist from another band....

Almost Genesis in a way.

Beisdes all that, in 2010 the band delivered X (2010), which in my opinion is their best studio album in the Nick D'Virgilio era. You have all the things that a Spoc's Beard fan would like and yet you got some new stuff going on.

An almost 80 minutes album with long tracks all around like 'Edge of the In-Between', 'From The Darkness' and 'Jaws Of Heaven' with more than 10 minutes. And yet we still have songs that goes between 7 and 9 minutes like 'The Quiet House', 'Their Names Escape Me' and 'The Man Behind The Curtain'.

I remember being all fired up about the album when I've heard it was about to be released, and still today is one of my favorites by the band.

Go for it!
