Review Flash

To introduce SPOCK`S BEARD would mean that you my dear reader are new to prog (shocking thought) ok I will try... the band is around since 1992 and they play retro prog rock (means Mellotron, Hammond Organ, harmony vocals and more) this is the bands twelfth studio album and the second one with ENCHANT`S Ted Leonard on vocals. I skipped a few records of SPOCK’S BEARD so I can and will not say this record is typically for them, but... there are trademarks in the band’s sound that are fast to recognize, the piano and the Hammond sounds are quite compelling as always and Ted Leonard is an outstanding vocalist.

Conclusion: If you are a fan just buy that record, if not listen to it and don’t forget the first four outputs from the nineties because that shit defined modern day (retro) prog for me.

Rating: 8 / 10
