5 stars With their secod L.P., Spock's Beard give us a great album that really have two parts. The first half show us what have they learn from the old proggies: 1. "Beware of Darkness" is a cover of George Harrison's jewel that is really: Harrison meets Yes's "Siberian Kathru". 2. "Thoughts" is a tribute to Gentle Giant's "Knots". 3. "The Doorway" is a son of Genesis' "Firth of Fifth" 4. "Chatauqua" is a tribute to Steve Howe's spanish guitar songs. The second half is what they can do with all that. They take all the previous and made their own songs: 5."Walking on the wind", is an epic very well constructed. 6: "Waste away" takes the popish Morse side and constructs a nice song. 7. "Time has come" is a suite, that sometimes souds like "Supper's Readdy", but doesn't fly so high. Indeed, for 1996 standards, is a very good album. In fact is one of m y favourite albums. It got the sound that I like in prog music.
