Album Review

Neal Morse continues to produce some of the most melodic and lyrically rich progressive music since the early '70s. Day for Night is another great effort from Spock's Beard. Standout tracks include the vocally beautiful "The Distance to the Sun," the progressive epic "The Healing Colors of Sound," and the title track. Add to the mix Alan Morse's inventive guitar playing, Nick D'Virgilio's brilliant drumming, and masterful keyboards from Ryo Okumoto to make Day for Night a musical tour de force for the ears.

Customer Reviews

The worst of the Neal Morse era

And that's saying something because most band would kill to have an album this good. But, it is still a very inconsistant affair that goes from brilliant to mediocre and back again. Not up to the standards you expected from Spock's Beard, but far better than most of the crap out there.

As another reviewer said...

This is probably the weakest of the Neal-era albums. It does, however, contain a few Spock's essentials. "The Healing Colors of Sound" (tracks 8 - 13 on iTunes) is a fun epic. "Crack the Big Sky," "Day for Night," and "Gibberish" are all great SB tunes. I really like "The Distance to the Sun" - though it's similar in many ways to "June" from The Kindness of Strangers album. "Skin," "The Gypsy," and "Can't Get It Wrong" are by no means unlistenable, but they aren't nearly as memorable as other Beard songs. It also seems that the recording quality of this record is somewhat diminished from Kindness of Strangers, but that could just be me. If you're getting into Spock's Beard, don't start here. Good starting points would be V, Kindness of Strangers, and The Light. Snow and Beware of Darkness are excellent, but I would start with one of the aforementioned three. If you're a fan already, but you're somehow missing this one, go ahead and pick it up. There's enough good stuff on here to keep you entertained.

Farther Than The Distance to the Sun

One of my favorite "get away" tracks by Neal Morse is "The Distance to the Sun". "There is a world, apart from what we know...there is a place, the eyes are never shown. We can be as one, and be farther than the distance to the sun." You can leave this crazy world just for a while listening to that song. Overall, though, this CD is inferior material compared to the other SB efforts. But compared to rest of the world of music, the CD still deserves 4 stars.
