SPOCK'S BEARD is among those bands that helped to the revival of progressive rock during the 90's.They were formed in Los Angeles,USA in 1992 by two multi-instrumentalists brothers,Neal and Alan Morse,who have been lovers of 70's progressive rock for years.Their debut album ''The light'' was released in mid-90's and it was a fantastic mix of the modern technologies available in producting an album with 70's influences and instrumentation.The band's first work is an endless list of vintage sounds through the heavy use of analog keyboards like the Hammond organ or the mellotron and the undoubtful hints of old bands like GENESIS,YES,KANSAS,GENTLE GIANT and KING CRIMSON.However,in a weird/majestic way,their compositions are quite easy-listening for even a mid-listenester and that's what ''The light'' is all about:Creating a classic progressive rock album with changing moods and climates but without being overly complex.I can only say that this is a very decent definition of progressive rock!Grab this nice little gem!
