A "Christian Prog" Classic

What a fantastic album. This is the only Neal Morse album that I own, and I listened to this before I purchased any Spock's Beard albums. Morse left SB after the release of the album "Snow" after converting to Christianity. His solo works reflect this conversion. "One" is simply fantastic. Buy the entire album in order to get its full effect. Progressive rock ("prog") is not exactly for the casual listener, due to its rather long song lengths and complex style, but that's what makes the genre so great. This album's main subject is man's battle with sin, our downfall from grace, and our eventual return to God. "The Creation" starts off with nice orchestral arrangements and fantastic drumming from Mike Portney of Dream Theater. Morse is a powerful lyricist and a skilled musician (keyboards, vocals, and guitar). "The Man's Gone" displays Morse's skills with the acoustic guitar, as is shown later in the tune's reprise in "The Separated Man." "Author of Confusion" is very much like a Dream Theater song... hard rocking... there's some great voice layering in that song. "The Separated Man" begins with a very catchy opening. The song changes as the different movements of the song progress. "Cradle to the Grave" is a bit slow to me, especially after hearing some other strong epics; however, it nonetheless is not a bad song. It is a conversation between a man who realizes his troubles and his need for a god and the Almighty Himself. "Help Me/ The Spirit and the Flesh" is probably my favorite, although I like most of the songs equally (that's when you know an album is a masterpiece). "Help Me" is a rather self-explanatory title (man's plea for help) and "Spirit and the Flesh" is about Christ's triumph over the dark forces of sin. "Father of Forgiveness" is a nice little piano piece... a more Christian-style song about a love of God. "Reunion" starts out very strong with a brass arrangement, followed by a "praise session" pleading "Make us One!" "One" may be a piece of Christian music, but I think that even if I wasn't Christian I might enjoy the album still, even if I merely listened just to the music itself. Morse could be called a successor to masters of progressive rock like Yes, and I like to think of this album as the "Close to the Edge" of "Christian prog." Set some time aside and listen to this. What I do like about this album is that it's not overly sappy, and it deals with a rather dark topic. Best of luck to Neal Morse, he is such a talented musician.

Neal Morse = AMAZING!!!!

Wow, I can't say enough good things about this album. If you're into prog rock of any sort, this is a must-have. Neal is just plain incredible! All instrumentation is top-notch (all of Neal's guitar and key parts are addictive and Mike Portnoy is a BEAST on drums). Plus, Neal is one of the most balanced vocalists and songwriters that I think I've ever heard; everything he's done is just so dynamic... there's something in there for everyone. Basically, just buy the album and listen yourself. If you don't like it, there's something wrong with you.

One of Neal's Best

This is a great place to start to find out what Neal Morse and Christian Prog Rock is all about. If you like this set, definitely go find the 2 CD version with the extra tracks left off this version. The bonus track King Jesus alone as well as the cover songs from Badfinger, U2, George Harrison and The Who are well worth the extra effort! Check it out!
