Spock's Beard - Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep (2013)
Having enjoyed their fifth album "Snow," I decided to check out Spock's Beard's latest release and I was not disappointed. It's a melodic, catchy, groovy album that's not overly quirky like some prog albums tend to be, but instead focuses mostly on the riffs a la Deep Purple (with some Yes thrown in). Despite some songs feeling a little dragged out, this is an epic, adventurous album written by a band who clearly know what they're doing and are doing it well even this late in their career. "Brief Nocturnes" is certainly worth your time if you're a prog-rock fan.
