4 stars Music from the USA don't use to be my cup of tea. I find English music much more accessible. I do not like Neal Morse's voice very much , I find it bland, I'm sorry, and Spock's Beard has some form of lack of originality. Still, I I could not be anything but amazed of this record. They do it very well.

"The ligth" came to us in the year of 1995 when Spock's Beard made up by the brothers Neal and Alan Morse, Dave Meros and Nick D'Virgilio. This is the symphonic sound of the 90s, it has gone some years since then but the band is still active.

This disc is even. No track is bad, everyone i worth listening to but in my opinion the two longest tracks have the most of intreresting here. "The light" shows great skills, a nice melody and much power in many layers. "The Water" is very long but never of less interest. It is smartly structured and is full of emotions. The closer "On the edge" has also a great melody.

Well it's hard for me to enjoy the vocals but I am though so impressed I have to give it four stars. I have just heard it once. "V" grew for me so this will perhaps do it too. It could also be easier for Americans to appreciate this than for me. A great debut with music I will listen to again!
