Great album, but I recommend you get their other albums first.

Neo Prog Power Metal
A solid debut from Shadow Gallery, but the production is terrible, and they are capable of MUCH more.

Symphonic Prog Rock
Maybe the most overrated album ever. Some great songs, but there isn't anything that special about this album.

QueensrÿcheListen - American Soldier 2009
7.0
Prog-Related Metal
A decent album from start to finish. No surprises, nothing unique or out of the ordinary, but it is solid for the most part.

IQListen - Frequency 2009
7.4
Symphonic Prog Rock
IQ's 2009 effort is solid, but not as good as their previous, Dark Matter. It's still one of the better 2009 albums, though.

Toy Matinee - Toy Matinee 1990
8.8
Prog-Related Rock
A very good album in-between prog related and crossover prog. A very good album by a genius that died far too soon. RIP Kevin.

Kevin GilbertListen - Thud 1995

A great album by an incredible musician who was taken away from us far too soon. This has great music, incredible lyrics, and a great voice. Highly Recommended!

Spock's BeardListen - Day for Night 1999
6.5
Symphonic Prog Rock
This is the weakest Neal Morse-era Spock's Beard album. While it isn't bad, it certainly doesn't rank up with their other masterpieces. Good, but non essential.

Spock's BeardListen - Octane 2005
7.0
Prog-Related Rock
This is a pop/rock album first, but it sure is a good one. There are a few passable track, but as a whole this is a very solid album, with a few memorable moments. I recommend this people who want the more accessible side of Spock's Beard.

Spock's BeardListen - Beware Of Darkness 1996
8.8
Symphonic Prog Rock
Their second album was the first with Ryo on keys, and he does a great job. The songwriting is very solid, and it has the classic Spock's Beard sound throughout the album. The Doorway reminds me of Genesis' Firth of Fifth. Great Album!
