The verse is a slow, Leonard meander about the contemplation of life. Ted Leonard era 2011—present Spock's Beard played the in June and the in July 2011. The boys really tortured their instruments on this one. This song has everything, and in my opinion will eventually be recognized as one of their best songs.

Along the same lines, the playing is good - - very good, actually - - but in places it comes across as clinical. But most of all it is the writing that suffers.
Snow is an allegory, it is an archetypal story that is ambitious in scope and redemptive in result, and is a thoroughly rewarding listen. Nothing goes together quite as well as progressive rock fans and lists, am I right? On October 12, 2016 Keegan announced that he was leaving the band for personal reasons.

The second time I played it I still didn't like it very much, especially when comparing it to the latest album, but I determined not to be a quitter and sometime through the third or was it the fourth I started to finally get into the music.
And I look forward to listening to it as I drive down a dirt road, after being rescued from my deserted island, so I can go deliver that one last package to a woman who unknowingly saved my life, and end up at the crossroads of choices in life. Nothing urges me to press skip like a number of tracks for example on Snow or Feel Euphoria. In fact, I received my limited edition gold vinyl copy I pre-ordered from the band, just a few months ago, and have been somewhat goo-goo eyed over it ever since.
