There is always a certain scepsis around groups consisting of members from already known/famous bands and sometimes the sum might be a lot less than the individual parts. But not so with this prog supergroup - in fact they have put out a masterpiece. Combining all the best of the individual participants and adding that undefinable factor of magic and good chemistry.

Mike Portnoy is ofc a world class drummer and his interplay with bassist Dave LaRue just downright perfect (they have also played together in the Led Zep tribute Hammer Of The Gods). Neal Morse is a true original - a devoted Christian and a magnificent progrocker both on keys and guitar. Steve Morse has rarely sounded better, he knows how to shred in an intelligent way. While Casey McPherson handles most of the lead vocals.

Is this a new Transatlantic? Well, not really since the emphasis here is more on the songwriting, less on long suitelike compositions. Recalling 80s groups like Mr.Mister, Toto or Trevor Rabin era Yes. And actually almost every song is a winner with memorable hooklines, clever lyrics and definitely hit potential. But at the same time the album is full of elegant musical details, odd metres, strange breaks, magnificent soloes. Everything to satisfy the musos and the tech freaks also.

Quite a music lovers dream and wonderful an album like this is still being made in 2012!

Mascot Label Group announces the release of the eponymous debut album from Flying Colors, the spectacular new virtuoso prog/pop/metal rock band formed by drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist Steve Morse.
The band also features Dave LaRue (who worked with Steve in Dixie Dregs) on bass, Neal Morse on keyboards and Casey McPherson on vocals and guitar.

Kicking off with mid tempo `Blue Ocean' it lets you into the Asia-style sound that encompasses most of the sound on the album with a couple of exceptions. Rocking up the noise with the cracking `Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda'and `The Storm'. `Fool In My Heart', `Everything Changes'and Better Than Walking Away' slows the pace down at the right sequence times on the album. `Kayla' features a middle ages style guitar book-ending, great vocal track not sounding too dissimilar to Chris Cornell, with some superb drumming from Mike Portnoy. `All Falls Down' is a fast paced track with some serious Muse-like overtones, featuring some frantic guitar and drumming combinations.
`Infinite In Me' - an Asia/Yes style track of twelve minutes that soaks up and releases all that's great about this musical collaboration. An epic track that provides a vehicle for the solo's to take flight.

This album came as something as a surprise to me, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. There is something for everyone to listen to from commercial radio friendly tracks, to out and out rockers and then some sophistication for the prog rock fans.
All in all a great release from the players on here, I look forward to the live dates that I believe will be happening.

I don't care much for the title of "Super-group", but I read the briefest of articles in Classic Rock magazine several months back on a bunch of exceptional musicians (well, as I know them!) and thought I'll keep an eye out for them.

A couple of months passed and then that very same magazine included the opening track "Blue Ocean" from that "Super-groups" eponymous initial album, Flying Colors on their monthly giveaway CD! Wow, I was hooked and bought the CD in its' entirety on the strength of that one track. But how could I go wrong with a lineup of Deep Purple guitarist, Steve Morse and his long time stalwart and bass-playing buddy from the Dixie Dregs, Dave LaRue, along with the percussive enigma that is Mike Portnoy and the musical wizardry of Neal Morse, one of the founding members of Spock's Beard. Amongst them was a relatively young unknown, Casey MacPherson, their front-man and co-lead vocalist. However don't get me wrong, this man comes with his own pedigree and commands respect.

The album is a refreshing view of all that is Prog-rock, & for a bunch of US citizens has a very, dare I say, British feel to it. Great songs that are not over-played and over-produced; a joy to listen to. I love music and this is still my album release of 2012. I would like to add that the real measure came when I played the CD to the fussy cow that is my better half, the one-time Goth and Damned fan, who immediately confiscated it for her own listening pleasure!!

The gig incidentally was absolutely superb and inspiring. Yes, super group is very apt.

Now go and check out the Von Hertzen Brothers!

Yet another successful collaboration between Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy that has blossomed on great works such as Transatlantic's Bridge across forever and Neal's solo stuff including one and ?. Add in the considerable talents of Steve Morse, Dave Larue and Casey McPherson and you have a mega-talented bunch.

The band had warned people that this album wouldn't be an out and out prog album - and it isn't. It certainly has prog elements, particularly in the closing 12-minute epic, Infinite Fire. But the album is more a blend of melodic rock (touches of AOR) and hints of prog. That may not sound appealing, but the album def works - and the songs speed by in a very appealing manner. A thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.

My personal favourites include the excellent opener Blue ocean which has a very nice bass line and a good blend of vocals. Kayla touches on the AOR style I previously mentioned, yet is a catchy song with a strong vocal and is an album highlight - as is the next one The storm. There is some nice guitar work on Everything changes - we even get some cries of "yeah" from the band who seem to be enjoying themselves. Better than walking away has some lovely, understated guitar work.

A fine album that I have given plenty of spins so far (currently fighting the latest efforts from Anathema and Storm Corrosion for control of my I-pod.)

2012 has already seen some top notch releases and with new stuff due from Echolyn, Rush, Marillion, Panic Room, The Reasoning and especially Big Big Train, the year looks like going from strength to strength. Flying colors have already played their part with this fine album.
