Progressive Metal

With or without Neal Morse, whether they're playing heavy third-wave progressive rock or the more recent rock-oriented sound, whether you love them or hate them -- the progressive rock community will always have something to say about Spock's Beard.

On the eve of the band's headlining performance at ROSfest, the Sea Of Tranquility staff has compiled this detailed retrospective- which includes reviews of the band's entire back catalog of studio albums, reviews of several live recordings and DVDs, several interviews, and a concert review, and even a review of keyboardist Ryo Okumoto's solo album.
