3 stars I bought this album in the nineties when Spocks Beard's reputation wasn't really as significant as it is now. And I have to say there wasn't really any reason for a great reputation after this album. This is a nice debut but not really impressive inspite of the two epic tracks, the ones I'm usually very fond of. But I feel this band (songwriter Neal Morse that is) had to warm up before they got slowly but surely better and better. The epics are ok but far from really impressive. I even like the shorter songs better this time. Go the way you go is a bit ballad like and very nice but the best track of the album is the shortest and last track. On the Edge is even one of their better efforts ever I believe and saves the album for me. But all in all this isn't good enough for 4 stars to me, so I will have to leave it at 3. (3,25)
