    Redacted: latest album growing on me. I truly sincerely deeply wanted to hate it but I just can't. Damn you SB for maintaining your cachet and making me happy again

    Enjoying the new album so far. I really loved Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep, so this album is going to work hard to surpass that one for me. But its really good so far.

    I've just been getting into this band in the last year. One (of many) things I like about them is the fact that they rarely have long self-indulgent solos. Even though they have long instrumental passages, there is very little soloing. Not that I don't like prog instrumental excesses, but it's refresh to hear a prog band that rarely indulges. Also, I got my first Spock's Beard CD shortly before Leonard Nimoy died. I don't know what that means, exactly.

    Was really skeptical of their post-Neal Morse direction, but they stayed every bit as progressive, actually moreso. It's the lack of pop hooks that make them less 'accessible' currently, the keyboard playing and basslines have actually gotten a good deal more intricate with the same direct lyrics. It's a good style, gonna have to look into the new album when it's out...Tides of Time has quite a bit of Yes and Kansas in it!

    @dr_bun, I got into them through At the End of The Day and All on a SUnday (the first is awesomely proggy, the second is catchy and very Beatles styled.) Hope that helps, Mister Ryu Okumoto on the Keyboards is awesome ELP as well, if you like them.
