I guess many of us SB fanatics were looking forward to this first release of the "new" band with some sense of trepidation. When a band loses a lead singer, keyboard player, guitarist, main song writer and creative soul all in one go (and in one person!), you have to wonder what they have left to offer. The fact is that "Feel Euphoria" does NOT sound like the old SB: it couldn't possibly do so unless the remaining guys were deliberatley plagiarising Neil Morse's legacy. What we do have here, however, is a great rock album containing a wealth of diverse, original songs, played by outstanding musicians.
After a dozen or so plays, I concluded that this is a very good album, not reaching the execeptional heights of "V" or "Snow", but comparing well with some other releases from the original line-up. Nick's transition from "just the drummer" to lead singer is remarkable and he turns in a powerful and convincing performance throughout the album. Without Neil's overwhelming creative dominance, the other members if the band have perhaps been given the chance to shine more and this is probably reflected in the new influences to the sound. Some classic SB trademarks are undoubtedly still present, but there are lots of new ones too.
Songs range from commercial-edged ballads like "Shining Star" (The Eagles meet Pink Floyd!), to full throttle, off-the-wall rockers like the opening track "Onomatopoeia". Some have complained about the "poppy" tracks, but the band have always had the occasional track like this on their earlier albums too! The standout cuts are the multi-part mini-epic "A Guy Named Sid" (rocks hard and has the classic Beard instrumental mayhem) and the simply stunning "Ghosts of Autumn", which holds its head high amongst ANY of the SB classics of old.

So, the first release from a Neal Morse-less Beard. As Neal was such a dominant force in the group, I wondered how the sound would differ. Well, in reality, not an awful lot. Nick D`Virgilio does a good job on lead vocals and, as with the old Beard, the music ranges from mediocre to brilliant. As one who didn`t rate "Snow" very highly at all, this is a nice surprise.
And so good to see the mellotron being used a whole lot more.
Not an outstanding first few tracks, but "Ghosts of Autumn" is wonderful and the albums closer "Carry On" likewise. There are two bonus tracks on the limited edition CD, and the last of these, "From The Messenger" is a must for all mellotron fans. A strings and flute workout the like of which I have not heard for many a year. Wonderful stuff!
All in all, a pretty good comeback. They still veer infuriatingly towards AOR at times and still some of the stuff seems to go nowhere,but the highlights are well worth it.

When Neal Morse left Spock's Beard rather suddenly after the release of the double CD "Snow", thereby doing a Gabriel, the band aptly responded by doing a Collins. No new singer was recruited - instead, drummer Nick D'Virgilio stepped up to the microphone.
And of course everyone was thinking: is this the end of The Beard as we know it?
Well, the band certainly didn't keep us in suspense very long. Snow was released in August 2002, and, within a year, here's the first 74 minutes of The New Beard.
So what's it like?
Well, this is definitely a new Beard. A simpler Beard, less diverse, less complex. It's a big and bushy Beard, but there's more brash and less brains.
If you were to take the Genesis comparison a step further, you could look at it this way. Don't just think of Gabriel's departure, but think of Steve Hackett's too. Think "And Then There Were Three". That's the sort of album "Feel Euphoria" seems to be.
The thing is, though, that "And Then..." is undoubtedly a fine album. And whilst I am still getting used to it, I sort of think the same aplies to "Euphoria". Okay, so it leans towards relatively simple (heavy) rock rather often. Okay, so gone are the whimsical jerky meanderings that gave such charm to their earlier endeavours. And, yes, gone is the lyricism of earlier work.
All that's true. But it leaves intact the simple fact that "Euphoria" is a good album. Not their best, admittedly, but good nonetheless. If you can, check out, for example, the title track (during which a few short sections sound just like King Crimson in the 80's) or A Guy Named Sid, Part 5 (which is the current Beard's version of, say, "Gibberish"). There's enough to enjoy, in spite of the haircut.
And in the end, I suppose, we should be happy with what we have to be happy with.

This is a big CD in the history of Spock's Beard. It's their first since lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Neal Morse left the band last year after the release of their double CD "Snow". Drummer Nick D'Virgilio (NDV)has taken over the lead vocalist role - he still handles drums on the CD but will be out front when they tour Europe later this year. That's the history but what about the CD?
It's different. On first play I thought "It's not Spock's Beard" NDV seems to have changed his vocal style to sound more like Neal. NDV has a fantastic voice and I would have liked to hear him sing as he does on the old CDs.
I'm now playing it for the 6th time (yes, I like it a lot now) and the stand out tracks for me are "Shining Star" very laid back, my wife even asking if this was a solo track by one of the Eagles, "East of Eden - West of Memphis" nice keyboard solo by Ryo Okumoto and great lead guitar work by Al Morse who seems to have a fatter/fuller sound (not sure I've described this properly)"A Guy Named Sid" is a 5 part epic coming in around 20 minutes - Actually, it's not fair to pick any of these tracks as highlights; they're all great. You really need to check this out. Neal Morse was an enormous influence on the band but I think this CD proves they can cut it without him. Can't wait until October 22 when they play the Mean Fiddler in London.
