Prog Reviewer
2 stars Well, Spock's fourth album, and one of their weaker ones. They sound more poppy here, and their prog seems not to fit in well with the pop. They'll get it better in 'V' which is my favorite Spock's Beard Album

1. Day For Night 8.5/10 : Well, this song is really good, it has it all : nice melodies, good instrumental breaks, and vocal harmonies. One of the most representative Spock's Beard songs there are. If only the rest of this album maintained this quality.

2. Gibberish 8/10 : A very catchy song that shows Spocks Beard is better than Gentle Giant with Vocal Harmonies.

3. Skin 4.5/10 : Normal rock song. Not prog at all. IT sounds like Porcupine Tree.

4. The Distance To The Sun 6/10 : A quite pretty song, but insignificant if you've heard Neal Morse's solo albums.

5. Crack The Big Sky 3.5/10 : A failed epic ... it has a very catchy section, and a solid rhythm at the beginning, but the rest is a disaster for me, especially the sax section which sounds very amateurish.

6. The Gypsy 5.5/10 : Decent and accessible progressive rock song with good vocals, on the mellow side.

7. Can't Get It Wrong 4.5/10 : A normal pop song with a catchy chorus.

8. The Healing Colors Of Sound Epic 4/10 : I can't describe it too well. It is a very spotty epic with some good and some awful sections. I think it is their worst epic they've done. The highlight is the 'healing colors of sound pt II'.

14. Urban Noise

15. Hurt 4/10 : Mediocre commercial Hard rock song.

Get 'V' , not this one, unless you are a fan of the band.

My Grade : D+

Zitro | 2/5 |
