1 stars Highly overrated. Their cover of the George Harrison song is the highpoint of the album. It quickly goes downhill from there. Spock's Beard is the epitome of all "neo-prog" bands that simply fall back on the tired, old cliches of prog music. It's all been done before, so why do it again? Prog became a "genre" when Yes made TORMATO. Up until then, it was just great bands experimenting with classical, jazz, and rock idioms and coming up with some amazingly new and - hey, PROGRESSIVE - stuff. Now, prog is like fusion - it's an endless set of repititions, performed by obviously technically adept musicians. Almost like these bands are trying to win awards, rather than make good music. A yawner, fer sure.
