5 stars Prog was still alive throughout the 90s and in the 2000s, Spock's Beard put out one of the best Prog albums in existence.

At the End of the Day: My favorite of this one. Has a huge Yes and kinda Genesis feel to it. They're celebrating the classics while still be new and fresh. It always puts a smile on my face every time.

Revelation: A shorter song but still has a heavy Symphonic feel that I just love. The chorus is really heavy and light on the verses and has good lyrical content. Overall, good song

Thoughts, Pt. 2: A sequel from a previous song and I love this song. The lyrics speak very heavy to me and the music is so heavy and groovy and Prog it's great. They even show Gentle Giant influence with the multiple vocal tracks. Great song

All on a Sunday: Strong Yes influence on this one. Kind of a break from the heaviness of the last songs but still has a nice feel to it

Goodbye to Yesterday: The single. Very acoustic and keyboardy to start. It's not a bad song but I understand why the song didn't do all that well on the charts.

The Great Nothing: A Prog Masterpiece. 27+ minutes of very intricate music and was very impressed with what I heard. The band sounded top notch and better than ever before. The title is almost a reference to Pink Floyd who originally called their epic Echoes, The Return of the Son of Nothing

Overall, Spock's best album without question. It has alot of classic songs and moments that recall the classics and invent some new ones. It has earned it's place with 70's Prog. 5 Stars. Highlights: At The End of the Day, Revelation, Thoughts Part 2, and The Great Nothing
