First off I love the idea here, the lyrics are great, taken straight from God's word. I have always loved Ted Leonard's Voice, I love Enchant and Thought Chamber. Mike Lepond is a great bassist, Symphony X is one of my favorite bands. I was expecting much more from such talented musicians.I thought the song writing would be better. I've never heard of the guitarist before, he is quite good, but it seems he thinks this project is all about him. All the songs here sound like endless guitar noodleing, little song structure or consistant melodies. No vocal hooks either, which is surpirsing coming from Leonard. I listened to the disc waiting for something to stand out or a song to emerge, but never happened. I am a huge fan of prog rock and prog metal and, as a guitarist myself, love great solos and instumental sections, but it has to be a part of the song, not the whole song. I'm sorry, but I was bored listening to this disc. Very disapointing from such a great group of musicians. Hope they get another guitar player and make a second cd in the future, but please concentrate on songs!
