    I heard "People are People" today and it led me to pull up this gem of an album.

    Spock's Beard is arguably the best US prog band. Beware of Darkness is an early album, probably my favorite if only because it was my introduction to them and the one I know the best. I listened to nearly the entire album uninterrupted yesterday at work.

    I don't believe I've ever heard them so I will have to rectify that.

    Attention, Yes fans. If like me you hadn't heard about this album you need to. Why didn't I hear about it at the time (1987)? I recently downloaded it from [that big web site where you buy albums and stuff that want's to put a link where I didn't intended one] and I love it! (The album I mean.)

    eSquire is Nikki Squire, compelling Grace Slick-like lead vocals, Chris Squire, background vocals (and presumably bass on this first album) Alan White, Trevor Horn and daughter Carmen Squire. It is at least as good as any 80s era Yes album and perhaps better. Ever so slightly pop but with enough prog inventiveness to satisfy. I listened to much of the album at work today -- dangerous, as I got very angry when the phone would ring.

    Here's a sample. The chorus seems to my ears to be in a constant state of key change. I'm not sure how they manage that effect. It's such a different sounding proggish pop, or "prop" as I like to think of it.
