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. [Metal Blade's 2007 edition included bonus tracks.]

Customer Reviews

A Classic

These guys came out in the midst of Nirvana-mania, how manly is that? This album was so far out in the alternate universe, it was utterly the least commercial thing to do at the time, so the band financed it themselves. Anyway, this is their second best album. The Light is one of their best songs, as is Go the Way You Go. The main reason this album is better than any later release by the band (except V), is that Neal Morse isn't taking the lyrics too seriously here. A classic album from a classicist band.

The beginning

Although this is one of my favorite bands, their 1st is ok. More a typical 1st album as you can hear some good material like Go the way you go & The Light. The water is a little oveerboard in terms of making a 10 min + song with cohesive music to fill it. On the Edge does not appeal at all. At least get this for Go the Way, as it was a staple for their live shows for quite some time.

Prog Rock at it's best

Progressive rock. A dirty phrase to rock reviewers who can neither understand nor (if they are musicians themselves), display enough talent to work in the style. Genesis (before ABACAB), King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Marrilion, Frank Zappa, and of course Spock's Beard. Masters of a musical genre that isn't even listed as such on ITunes. That's because it requires musical ability from the musician and enough intelligence from the listener to appreciate it. Rap fans apply elsewhere. If you appreciate brains with soul stirring musical twists and turns, Spock's Beard will deliver! Prog Rock lives!

Spock's Beard began in 1992 when brothers Neal (lead vocals) and Al Morse (guitar) teamed up with drummer Nick D'Virgilio. After self-financing their first album, bassist Dave Meros joined, and The Light was recorded in 1994. Consisting of four lengthy songs, this debut album was well received by progressive rock fans, but received little public acclaim. Ryo Okumoto joined in 1995 to play keyboards. In 1996, The Official Bootleg was released, a live performance containing the entire first album plus...
