V is the fifth studio album of progressive rock band Spock's Beard.

The release of V also produced a CD single, this time promoting the track "All on a Sunday". The track itself was re-recorded in 2001 and is slightly different from the album track. Also on the single is an unreleased song called "The Truth", and the music video for "All on a Sunday".

This album is available as a limited edition as well, which contains a 32-page booklet that includes an interview with the band and a personal fact-sheet on all the band members, as well as a multimedia track showing the band in the studio.

"Thoughts" is the second part of a cross-album suite, with other parts being featured on the Spock's Beard album Beware of Darkness and the Neal Morse album Momentum.
