Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Feel Euphoria marque un changement radical dans la carrière du progressif Spock's Beard : leur leader, le chanteur Neal Morse, est parti mener une carrière solo, abandonnant son rôle au batteur Nick D'Virgilio, comme Phil Collins le fit au sein Genesis après le départ de Peter Gabriel. Moins ambitieux que le précédent et double CD Snow, cet opus ratisse large, à l'image de l'ensemble des goûts de chacun des membres d'un groupe surpris par la démission du principal compositeur. C'est donc quasiment d'un nouveau départ dont il s'agit. Une longue suite épique, "A Guy Named Sid", laisse augurer du meilleur quant à leur avenir. --Hervé Comte --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have to hand it to the guys in SB for surviving Neal Morse's departure. There have been plenty of disastrous attempts by bands to forge ahead when a pivotal member has departed (Genesis minus Phil Collins AND Peter Gabriel comes to mind). Fortunately, the four remaining Beard members are talented enough that they can make this work. Having now heard NDV's singing, I find myself wondering why he didn't get more of an opportunity to do so before. This may seem like blasphemy, but I think Nick's voice is just as strong as Neal's, only different. Musically, this is a bit more streamlined progressive with a healthy dose of straight forward rock ('Day For Night' comes to mind). There's more musical diversity on this album than any previous SB release. Case in point: the hard-rocking opener "Onomatopoeia." I love Alan's crunchy guitar riffs with Ryo's keyboards adding a unique texture. Without a doubt, the best song on this album is "The Bottom Line" which runs the gamut from hard rock to traditional prog and ends with a great acoustic bit. There are a few more pop-oriented tracks, such as "Shining Star" and "Carry On" but these songs still maintain the amazing SB sound. That album's multi-part epic, "A Guy Named Sid," is not one of the band's best, but it has some great parts and is similar in scope to "The Healing Colors of Sound" from 'Day For Night.' To people who have been having trouble deciding whether or not they want to buy this album due to the fact that Neal Morse is no longer with the band, I really suggest that you give this a try. If you are looking for another 'Kindness of Strangers' or 'V' you may not like what you hear. On the other hand, if you keep an open mind and just go in expecting great music you won't be disappointed.

I was never really a fan of Spock's Beard until I picked up the Snow concept album last year, so I don't really understand too much about the Neal vs. Nick argument. I must say that this album is produced extremely well. Despite whatever they're playing, good or bad, the performance and sound recording are pretty close to impeccable, even if it verges on a real 1980s flavor more than once. As for the music, there are some real moments of beauty and some really bright shining cliches. The first song sounds like two seperate songs were combined into one. The acoustic part in the middle, as nice as it sounds, seems rather out of place in the context of the Foo Fighters-esque rock-and-socker of the total song. The beginning of the second song sounds a little too much akin to the Beatles "Don't Let Me Down" with its extended-meter vocal lead-ins. Overall, the lyrics are very forced and sophomoric, which reminds me of, well, every other prog rock band that still does albums these days (Dream Theater, Flower Kings, Yes). In the end, I was not totally impressed or disappointed by this album. The riffs are solid, the recording great, but some of the ideas definitely show that Spock's Beard is in sort of a holding pattern for creativity, rehashing the same old tricks.

Well, I wanna start saying I've been following the Beard three years ago, and this brand new album from the band was really a shock in the beggining! I was always wondering if the man in the store didn't change the cds with another band of a more grunge prog hardcore style. No, it was really the Beard, but surprise: without Neal's lyrics and melodic influences. In the beginning I found very, very strange, but the more I listened to it, the more it was growing on me. It's a nice effort of a band starting again and looking for a new identity, after the departure of the genius of Neal Morse, that is living the Christian principles nowadays. Testimony is a wonderfull album, with awesome music and really cool Beard prog sound, but the religious and personal lyrics are really boring! Anyway, I think that if Neal never entered the band before, this (the actual Beard sound) would be the sound of the band since it's beginning. Strange, but true! Well, I think that everyone have to give a chance on this and listen carefully, not thinking about the old Beard, but thinking about the great musicians that are playing on it! Neal will always been missed in the band, and the band will never release another "The Light", or "V", or "Snow" again, but the new Beard style is very good too! The great gems here in my opinion are "Onomatopoeia", great hard rock/harcore song, "The Bottom Line", good Beard song, remembering of the old Beard, "Shining Star" great ballad, from track 7 to 12 the great epic "A Guy Named Sid" that proves definetely that the Beard is alive and well, and the beautiful ballad "Carry On". Buy it, if you like a really good rock album.

I discovered this band about 4 or 5 years ago on this site. Since that time I've shared their music (Spock's Beard) with my German friends. To my utter disappointment, The Beard never played in Seattle. I've never been able to time my frequent visits to Germany when The Beard played there in the past. The Beard has a nice following now in that country. Since then, I've acquired most of their catalog. The first time I listened to this CD minus the genius of Neal Morse... I didn't really care that much for it. However, after several listening sessions I have grown to love most of the cuts on this album. One of my favorites is the song by their drummer and now lead vocalist,titled Shining Star. This new Beard minus Neal Morse should not be dismissed. Their music is excellent... just different, without Neal's writing and influence. Don't give up on the Beard because of Neal's exodus. I hope that there is much more music to come from these outstanding musicians. Buy this CD if you are a ProgRock fan, you won't be dissappointed!
