4 stars I think this is a phenomenal modern prog album. What I like most about the album is its energy. The whole time it seems to say "Yeah we're a modern band making prog rock. We're gonna sing about catfish men and write 20 min. songs. F**** you." The album is complex and creative enough to compliment humor and energy involved, but it never over steps its bounds. Although made mostly of epics, the album doesn't feel like it wants to be mysterious or pretentious at all. As has been said, there are many similarities between Spock's Beard and Gentle Giant in style and music. While Neal may not have an incredible vocal range, the passion and the characters he develops with his singing work very well. This is my first album from Spock's Beard (though I am a Morse and Transatlantic fan), and I found it an excellent introduction to their music.

Rating: 9/10
