4 stars Spock's Beard being let loose on a novice.

I have really never embraced this band. Mostly due to lack of time, but Spock's Beard is on my to-do list for next year. I am warming up with this live album. Please note that I only know the Snow album and have had little exposure to the rest of the albums. I am a 'Beard novice.

On the basis of this live album; my introduction to the rest of their material, I am really looking forward to explore their stuff. This is really my cup of tea. Their music is dynamic and symphonic throughout. I find their stuff a blend of latter days THE BEATLES and symphonic prog. Their new vocalist is as good as NEAL MORSE. I have no gripes with the new vocalist. I enjoy tracks like She is Everything, Of the Beauty of It All, Harm's Way, NWC, At the End of the Day, As Long as We Ride and The Light. Actually, there is nothing here I do not like. The sound is excellent and the musicianship brilliant. Spock's Beard status as one of the best prog rock bands in today's scene is deserved, as far as I am concerned.

This live album is a brilliant introduction to Spock's Beard and I am flashing my credit card in the direction of the rest of their albums. Come joy, come life.

4 stars.
