Spock’s Beard recently announced a special 20th anniversary edition of their Feel Euphoria album, arriving on vinyl for the very first time November 24. Pre-order here.
Nick D’Virgilio unboxes the album in this new video:
Dave Meros: “This is the first in a series of re-releases of the ‘Nick era’ Spock's Beard albums. I hadn't listened to this album many years, and it was cool to hear how hard we rocked some of those songs, how unique it was compared to the typical prog rock album of the time, and how different it was from both what we had done in the past and what we were to do in the future.”
Feel Euphoria, originally released in 2003, was a landmark album for the band, being their first without Neal Morse, and with Nick D’Virgilio as lead vocalist. It also demonstrated a more band approach to the song-writing.
This brand new gatefold 180g 2LP edition has been newly remastered especially for vinyl by Patrick Engel at Temple of Disharmony, and includes the two bonus tracks from the original release as well as liner notes from each band member reflecting on the album.
"The Bottom Line"
"East Of Eden, West Of Memphis"
"Ghosts Of Autumn"
"A Guy Named Sid: Intro"
"Same Old Story"
"You Don't Know"
"Sid's Boys Choir"
"Moth Of Many Flames" (Bonus track)
"From The Messenger" (Bonus track)
This reissue marks the first in a series of vinyl releases from this period of the bands existence. Look at for more in the future.
