Spock's Beard: The Light. Back in 1995 I happened on to the Beard's website and after listening to a few sound clips I knew I had to have the album. It took three mailings and a phone call from guitarist Al Morse (complete with a rendition of "Country Roads" once he realized I was in West Virginia) before I finally got my hands on it, but it was worth it. At times, I think The Light is still the best Beard album. At any rate, it's a milestone for modern symphonic prog.
