‘Songs From November’ is completely different from what you might be used to from Mr Morse. There’s barely a hint of Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic or, indeed, his last solo offering on ‘Momentum’. It’s actually quite MoR and some of the lyrics are, dare I suggest it, a bit treacly. But it’s also very good!

Most songs are around the four minute mark and adhere to a no nonsense verse-chorus type structure. The songs all sound very personal (I don’t know Mr Morse so can only guess), especially track 9, ‘Daddy’s Daughter’. This heaps the treacle big time but at the same time it comes across as being very honest. It’s the sound of a dad telling his daughter unashamedly what he feels about her.

There’s plenty of hooks and lots of great melodies on offer on this pop with occasional tinges of country offering. Having listened to it three or four times now, I feel it’s a CD I’ll be playing fairly regularly. I’d like to give it four and a half stars, so will need to content myself with giving it four. If you’re looking for Neal Morse prog epics, this isn’t it; if you’re looking for a solid set of songs with good tunes, fill your boots.

Neal Morse has for many years had a double career, the best known as prog icon: Spock's Beard, Transatlantic a.m.o. But he had also made a string of Christian albums with simpler, devotional songs. Here he has kind of mixed the two strains: the superpro production and the immediatly catchy songwriting in a very convincing way. And made a beautiful album that could be considered a return to the classig era of singer/songwriters.

Well written tunes that shows influence from Beatles, Moody Blues, CSN. And more divese lyrics, I for one rejoices in not hearing a word about sin! Rather focusing on making his words reflect the times we live in, love, family life.

Like his Christian colleague Phil Keaggy he makes excellent intelligent pop/rock that's a joy to listen to, no matter your spiritual orientation or lack thereof.

Awesome for what it is 19 Aug 2014
By Skippy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a real great singer/songwriter style album from my all time favorite artist. If you are familiar with Neal, be aware that this is NOT a big prog project. If you are looking for 30 minute epics, this isn’t your album. It is an up-beat, poppy, singer-songwriter style album in the vein of “Neal Morse” and “It’s Not to Late”. This one however is much stronger than those two albums though. The melodies are strong, the lyrics are uplifting, with plenty of catchy hooks.

Whatever Days is an up-tempo, Billy Joel inspired song about days long gone.

Heaven smiled is a slower acoustic tune that reflects on the beauty and joy found in the simple things in creation. Includes some nice gospel-choir style backing vocals.

Flowers in a Vase is an acoustic ballad written to his wife with a bit of a Eagles feel to it with a nice vocal melody in the chorus and a healthy dose of steel guitar peppered in for effect.

Love Shot an Arrow is a piano-led ballad about a life being changed by love. The song features more choir vocals and a nice string section to really make it stand out.

Song for the Free is an upbeat, percussion and synth driven worship tune.

Tell Me Annabelle is another piano-led piece which is one of the real vocal highlights of the album to me. Neal’s vocals sound quite good on this one.

My Time of Dying is a deep and introspective song about being at peace with one’s mortality and the afterlife. Musically it features some nice string parts and a really nice vocal harmony in the chorus and bridge.

When Things Slow Down is another Eagles/light southern rock inspired song about being to busy and longing for having more time to spend with family.

Daddy’s Daughter is exactly what it sounds like, it is Neal’s song dedicated to his daughter Jayda. Almost Neal’s answer to Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Cinderella”. If you are familiar with Neal’s story, then this one really is a standout.

Wear the Chains is a song about growing up, raising a family, paying bills, and how we often choose to “Wear the Chains” of what is safe instead of taking the risk and taking hold of the freedom when we have opportunity.

The Way of Love closes out the set similar to how it began, with an upbeat, Billy Joel inspired piano lead tune. This time around reminding us to search for and find love even when it’s difficult. This one has a nice groove and some good horns as well.

Wow ... what a surprise!! 21 Sep 2014
By PMFPS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A different kind of Neal, indeed!! Hard to imagine him composing something so poppy and horn-inspired as this ... Why am I thinking of a Phil Collins comparison at the moment when this is so much better than anything Collins has put out solo-wise.

A good direction for Neal ... although a surprisingly different one, but it works -- and hey! That's all that matters, eh?

Get it!!! It's *that* good ...

Good catchy numbers 6 Oct 2014
By The Perfect Gnat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is exactly what Neal says it is: Songs that you can play for your friends who don't get progressive rock. Good catchy numbers, but I found myself waiting for each number to go epic. I'm a big fan of Neal's prod rock, so I don't see this one getting much play from me, but overall, it's solid, standard, pop rock. I have a feeling Neal could write five albums like this in a week.
Let me begin by saying I love Neal's progressive rock catalog 4 Nov 2014
By Adam G. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com

Let me begin by saying I love Neal's progressive rock catalog. That said, I will also say that I wish he could have a little more rigid an editing process. Neal is guilty of putting out too much product. Quality suffers. This record is all pop and a lot of it is good albeit a little shallow. I also think that it is time he sunk some money into his studio, or just try a different studio for once. Because all his records sound a little too much alike sonically.
this is every bit as good as anything he's done 5 Nov 2014
By Weston J. Mccarty - Published on Amazon.com

As a metal head, I prefer Neal's more proggy tunes (LOVE The Door!!) but as a Christian and a lover of music, this is every bit as good as anything he's done. If you're like me and own everything Neal does, you can't miss this! LOL
