4 stars This is the Spock's Beard debut, and a very good album, but not a masterpiece, of course...

Here we can find the classic Spock's members (except Ryo Okumoto) and sound, but with a weak production sometimes, and Neal Morse doesn't sing very well here... But the Spock's style it's well defined from their beginnings, with the Gentle Giant influences, the 70's feeling, and with amount of pop and symphonic cliches too...I like specially the suite The Light and Go The Way You Go, two great songs... The epic The Water it's not bad, but it's a little boring and repetitive sometiemes. On The Edge it's the classic Spock's Beard's hard rocking song, but nothing really remarkable...

Excellent album, with true wonderful moments and a stunning bass playing by one of the best bassist in the world: Dave Meros!!!
