4 stars When I first heard SPOCK'S BEARD were working on a concept album I was to be honest a little concerned they might just not be a good fit for the concept thing ! Well now after having played it a million times I must tell you my apprehension was totally unwarranted. "Snow" is truly a powerful album full of grand themes, heavy musicianship and a very fitting story line. The 2 CD coverage of this story is quite successful really with what I am sure some will say is unnecessarily prolonged story unfolded onto 2 discs, but I must oppose this view. Although SB could have told the story on 1 Cd it gives them the space to really unleash some telling musicianship. The music as usual is rich and expressive with some great vocals by Neal MORSE and Co. As with all SPOCK'S BEARD albums, "Snow" is full of vocal harmonies and wild timing to keep your toes tapping. Sonically this album is pure magic with some incredible speaker separation and instrumental depth. The songs themselves are quite excellent with MORSE being the majority contributor to this collection. Musical themes run throughout the album with both soft and loud moments. The story line is bit wild with some human aboration named SNOW and the CD's tells us of his story and many ways not unlike the story line of GENESIS' "Lamb Lies Down..." or IQ's - "Subterranea".
