Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep (Best of 2013 — Part 8)

Coming in the #8 slot (in alphabetical order) on my Best of 2013 list is this year’s perfect slice of prog from:

Spock’s Beard

This one completely caught me by surprise. I was not prepared for how awesome it is!

I was not expecting “Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep” to be soooooo good. I was not expecting to like it so much!

No Neal? No Nick? Wow, I was not expecting this to be one of the year’s best.

But holy smokes! I feel like this is the Beard’s best album ever!!

(Time will tell if I persist in that judgment. But so far my enthusiasm has not waned!)

I really love this disc a lot. Everything works here! All the tracks are amazing.

(And I have seen this album on a lot of Top Ten lists, so I know I am not alone in the republic of Progarchy with my enjoyment of this fantastic album.)

Congratulations, gentlemen! You have gone above and beyond, showing us all what true excellence in prog is.

    Right on the money, Dr. M! This is easily my favorite SB album, and one of my Top Twelve of 2013. I am a fan of Enchant, have enjoyed several SB albums, and yet I didn’t expect this album to be so compelling, fresh, and downright enjoyable.
