5 stars Spock's Beard's V meets all expectations as another excellent release from one of modern symphonic prog's most revered bands.

V is one of Spock's Beard most spectacular releases. It was with this album that Morse's future of making epics in projects like Transatlanic and his solo project really shows. The thirty minute finale The Great Nothing is an amazing track. The track shows excellent musicality on part of all the musicians. Bassist Dave Meros and keyboardist Ryo Okumoto may not get all the credit they deserve next to the Morses , but they lack of popularity does not equate to their excellent musical skill. The opener At the End of the Day is another classic work from Spock's Beard with a magnificient cello intro giving way to jazzy overtones and catchy choruses coming later in the song.

The vocal work from Neal Morse and Nick d Virgillo is outstanding. The shorter track Thoughts (Part II) is proof of this. The vocals do lack range, but make up for it with great chordal tones and rythymic diversity not found in many bands. This album is another masterpiece of progressive music from Spock's Beard.
