5 stars Easily Spock's Beards' best single album. It it arguably the best overall album for me, but SNOW also is in the same position. V is probably the easiest album to jump into for people just getting into SB, however, for many reasons. The main influences here are probably YES, GENESIS, THE BEATLES, and RUSH.

The first song, AT THE END OF THE DAY, is a great epic with emotional and rocking themes. This is followed by many great shorter songs, the best being THOUGHTS PART II. The highlight of the album is easily THE GREAT NOTHING, which tells the emotional story of NEAL MORSE's life. It is easily the best on the album and maybe the best of SB.

So basically, this album is really amazing. The musicians are skilled, the music is written beautifully, and is easily a desert island album for me. For newbies and fans, this is a must-own.

J-Man | 5/5 |
