3 stars This is clearly the weakest release of Neal Morse's era-Spock's Beard. The poppiest side of the goup is predominant here, in fact the style of this album is not very different from the first solo album by Neal. Of course there are prog arrangements but they are in general less prominent and impressive than in previous albums. The tunes are not bad at all, but not outstanding. The highlights are the title track, Gibberish (with yet another example of good Gentle Giant-styled harmonies) and some moments of the multipart suite that fills the second half of the album. There is also a bad simple hard rock song, Hurt, as a bonus track in the european release, which somehow advanced the future style of some songs from the Feel Euphoria album which would come later. Overall still a good album, but one of their weakest of their golden era.
