4 stars Spock's Beard enters the scene with a progressive proposal to have a modern sound with one foot in the gold standard of style, and in the future please fans of Dream Theater and related products, consider a median band, but if we can bring all of their albums can be drawn 2 "the best of" this is perhaps the best album of the group. The first track, which names the disc comes with a piano intro that will pursue any career of his singer in its early solo synth mixed with the complex technical drummer Nick, touches of mellotron and a loud music from start to finish. The second track follows the mellotron with suspense as it enters the calm of the piano and feel and we're listening to a soundtrack, acoustic guitar, touches of PLA (see the body) and an entry in the jazz piano requires the ability of the whole band. The third full eplore beautiful piano lines with suspense and influence of classical music as well as heavy bodies, another highlight is the sound of the bass. Finally, "On The Edge" manages to pack a powerful bass, swing and of course, elements of Neo-prog and Dream Theater (nothing to take its beauty). In my opinion, the departure of Neal Morse was best for vocal group and did not affect either the instrumentality, but it is recognized that any album by Neal Morse (apart from the "Worship")beats any album of the group. 4 stars, beautiful debut.
